Complete second season of the classic action series. Astronaut and test pilot Steve Austin (Lee Majors) was almost killed in a plane crash. Fortunately for him, the government had the technology to rebuild him with experimental bionic parts, giving him super-speed and strength. To repay the government for their help, Steve joined the Office of Scientific Investigation and uses his superpowers to help fight crime, espionage, and space aliens. In this season, the Bionic Woman is introduced for the first time, Steve retrieves a nuclear warhead from a former WWII Japanese pilot's home, saves the last Golden Cougar from extinction and battles his doppelganger who's stealing secrets from Oscar's office, then assumes his identity to get to the bottom of the plot. All in a morning's work for the man-machine. Episodes included: 'Nuclear Alert', 'The Pioneers', 'Pilot Error', 'The Pal-Mir Escort', 'The Seven Million Dollar Man', 'Straight on 'til Morning', 'The Midas Touch', 'Deadly Replay', 'Act of Piracy', 'Stranger in Broken Fork', 'The Peeping Blonde', 'The Cross-Country Kidnap', 'Lost Love', 'The Last Kamikaze', 'Return of the Robot Maker', 'Taneha', 'Look Alike', 'The E.S.P. Spy', 'The Bionic Woman (1)', 'The Bionic Woman (2)', 'Outrage in Balinderry' and 'Steve Austin, Fugitive'.

The second season of The Six Million Dollar Man was, for me, the apex of the series. The first season was solid, but dry. This was perhaps necessary to sell the concept, but the second year worked on humanizing Steve Austin a little more. They also worked in a little more science fiction into the series, which might sound strange when talking about a show with a sci-fi premise. However, the serie smostly, with a few exceptions, kept things closer to the real world with spies, kidnappings, hijackings and the like. However, someone must have realized that fans got a kick out of seeing Steve fighting people in slow motion, people with equal strength and sound effects (lol).

This season has a number of great episodes:

The Pioneers - Oscar and Rudy secretly use two astronauts as part of an experiment in cryogenics. It goes wrong and the capsule crashes. Pre-MASH Mike farrell plays the crazed astronaut who reacts badly to the chemicals and becomes super strong. Steve tracks him through the forest and fights him in a couple of nice sequences.

The Seven Million Dollar Man - this is my all-time favorite episode. Monte Markham plays Barney Miller (changed to Hiller in a sequel episode thanks to the Hal Linden series), a man who was given four bionic limbs before Steve's accident. Barney can't handle it and gets drunk with power. There are two amazing bionic action sequences: the first when Barney roughs up a gang of terrorists ("it's wild Steve! It's wild!") and the final showdown between Steve and Barney. Also, a bionic arm-wrestling match is great fun to watch. There's a nice joke at the end which Lee Majors delivers nicely and this episode becomes a classic.

Straight On 'til Morning - Meg Foster plays a stranded alien colonist trying to get home.

Wow what a difference a year makes! I just received my copies of both 2nd seasons of SMDM and BW and am impressed with the transfer of both. Now if they would go back and remaster and restore season 1, that would be even better. A bonus on the 6th disc is that the episode The Bionic Woman is presented in its 95 minute form, not given the syndicated 2 part version treatment that was used on season 1 set for the three pilot episodes. So great job on that as well. Hopefully they wont wait as long to release seasons 3 through 5 and maybe someday they will release it in the United States though I must say that ordering from amazon.uk is quicker than waiting for it to be shipped in U.S. and I live down the street from Amazon...and it still takes 8 - 10 days. Anyway. Great item for the true fans.

I live in the USA. Forget about the stupid trademark infringement wars between studios! Just head down to your local Wal-Mart and buy a $39 all-region DVD player that converts PAL to NTSC on the fly! I did, and the episodes look awesome!

Shipping time from the UK took about 2 weeks. The staff at amazom.co.uk are pleasant and knowledgable.

I will be placing many more orders from them for TV DVD sets that the idiots in the USA won't release.

WARNING. BEFORE BUYING THIS PRODUCT LET ME TELL YOU THAT SINCE WRITING THIS REVIEW EARLIER THIS YEAR IT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED THAT THE COMPLETE SET OF ALL FIVE SEARIES OF THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN WILL BE RELEASED IN JANUARY 2012 AND AT THE MOMENT WILL COST OVER £100. IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT THEN WAIT AND BUY IT IF YOU WANT THE FULL FIVE SEASONS.
I PERSONALLY FIND IT ANNOYING THAT IF LIKE ME YOU ALREADY HAVE SERIES ONE AND TWO THEN WE ARE FORCED TO RE BUY THOSE AGAIN. I ALSO HAVE THE SPIN OFF TV MOVIES AS WELL AND I DONT KNOW IF THEY ARE INCLUDED IN THE COMPLETE SET OR NOT.

Season Two of the Six Million Dollar Man continues the adventures of Steve Austin. In Series one, the story had been based on a book called "Cyborg" by Martin Caidin, The title role of Steve Austin was played by Lee Majors. The story from the original novel and the later series is the crash of former astronaut Steve Austin as he tests a new craft, Austin is severely injured in the crash and is "rebuilt". His right arm, both legs and left eye are replaced by "bionic" implants that enhance his strength, speed and vision far above human normality.
There is now a consistency in the way that the bionics are presented in the production. There are electronic sound effects and slow motion running along with various camera angles covering Austin as he jumps incredible distances. The stories follow simular themes to series one. With Austin trying to contain a nuclear disaster, trying to help The seven million dollar man who becomes a problem when his body rejects his bionics, battling the Robot maker seen in series one, helping a Japanese soldier who thinks World War Two is still raging and getting back together with his first love who suffers a parachute accident and ends up becoming the Bionic Woman.

Firstly its great to have these episodes in season format as there is a whole generation waiting to discover them. After the success of the first series you can tell the studios were rubbing their hands at the thought of a second series and Harve Bennett delivered a good 22 episode season that still hold up well. One of my favourite episodes is 'Taneha' with the gorgeous Jess Walton.
But that's not my problem.
My problem is with universal and the awful way the second series has been repackaged. The episodes are by no means 'remastered' as they look as if they've been left out in the sun for a week! They are faded and the sound track is in mono - where's the stereo sondtrack? The packaging is cheap too. The first season had a book page package where these episodes are two discs in wafer thin slip cases in an almost paper case ! and there are still no extras in this set.
Universal please look at warner brothers efforts on say, wonder woman. Beautiful picture quality, so-so packaging but at least they provide a bonus documentary !
I wish i was in charge of it all......
