After a severely injured test pilot is rebuilt with nuclear powered limbs and implants, he serves as an intelligence agent.
PBS' children's show The Electric Company (1971) did a series of skits based on this show, called "The Six Dollar and Thirty Nine Cent Man".
Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.
Oscar Goldman: Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better... stronger... faster.
Steve Austin's bionic abilities are supposed to be kept secret. Yet, in several episodes he freely reveals it to people by demonstrating it or telling them.
Several early episodes, now syndicated as two-part stories, were original broadcast as 90-minute TV movies. Most retain their original titles, except for the first two episodes of the series, "The Moon and the Desert," which were originally part of the original Six Million Dollar Man TV-movie. Several later two-hour episodes of the series have also been reedited into two-parters, such as "Lost Island."
