As I have with the pilot, I've had the pleasure of viewing both the 90 minute movie version (my preferred favorite) and the 2 part syndicated version of what is the second episode of the Six Million Dollar Man.
As other posters have commented, this is one episode or should I say movie that has a James Bond type of feel to it. For me, it's due to a couple of guest stars in the cast. Britt Ekland is one of the most beautiful women I have ever laid my eyes on. Ironically, she was a Bond girl, so that helps give the movie a Bond feeling. The other actor who gives it a Bond type of feeling is Eric Braeden as Mr. Finletter. The presence alone of these two performers really does it for me. Along with the musical score, the plot, and the tropical location where Steve is on vacation (or so he thinks).
Lee Majors is in his second outing as Colonel Steve Austin, a man who does go on missions, but he makes it clear that he's nobody's robot. Dr. Rudy Wells has been recast. Alan Oppenheimer plays him in this movie and the one that follows and as a recurring guest in the early half of the series. To be honest, when I think of Alan Oppenhimer, I think of the cartoon characters he's voiced over for Filmation studios.
This movie is the official debut of Oscar Goldman played by Richard Anderson, whose character is a cold, government type of man, but unlike his predecessor, Oliver Spencer, Oscar Goldman is at least likable. As much as I like Darren McGavin, I'm glad his character did not return, but they tried to make us believe that Oscar was there from the beginning.
At this early point, Steve and Oscar do not get along very well and we see a fault with Steve's bionics that occurs whenever Steve experiences anger. A problem that is eventually remedied.
Harry Donner is a guy you just want to beat up, and Cynthia (or Sin)may be pretty, but her voice leaves a lot to be desired. If there were any reason not to make a pass at this lady, just listen to her talk. I really hated Harry's arrogance when Steve cold cocks him for tricking him and then later, Harry says "Don't worry Steve I'm not mad." Harry mad? Now that's a joke. Steve is the one who has the right to be mad after being tricked the way he was.
Last but not least, I read somewhere that the Six Million Dollar Man was going to be a movie of the week type of series that ran on ABC, but it didn't last that way since ABC wanted a series and well, the rest is history. I must admit, as corny as it was, I actually liked that rare intro for this movie and I can only assume that they used it on the other one. "The Six Million Dollar Man" was sung by Dusty Springfield and maybe not the greatest intro, but a memorable one I felt.
This is definitely on the recommended list of episodes to view, alongside the pilot movie.
