Grievously injured in the crash of an experimental aircraft, Colonel Steve Austin's shattered body is covertly rebuilt via the miracle of modern science known as bionics. Equipped with atomic-powered limbs that make him "better, stronger, faster" than the average mortal, Austin (Lee Majors) can now run at speeds exceeding 60 miles per hour, overturn cars with ease, and spot an encroaching enemy from over a mile away. Under the watchful eye of OSI director Oscar Goldman (Richard Anderson), Steve repays his debt to the taxpayers by taking on perilous missions of a highly classified nature.
Work and romance will challenge Steve Austin like never before in Season 2 of The Six Million Dollar Man. When not confronting a dangerously unstable cyborg (Monte Markham), Steve has his hands full with a nosy news reporter (Farrah Fawcett-Majors), a fiendish android, and visitors from distant galaxies. Sparks fly when Austin crosses paths with childhood sweetheart Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner), who is remade in his image following a tragic skydiving accident. Watch their love reignite in this unprecedented, digitally remastered 6-DVD set featuring 22 uncut episodes and over two hours of bonus materials!
