Six Million Dollar Man

Intro: LINK

Unfortunately, this series has the 70s written all through it however I would love to see someone competent redo this today. Hopefully, they wouldn't try to make a comedy movie out of it like the trend seems to be (Starsky & Hutch, Land of the Lost, etc.)

They would have to change the title or leave it in the 70's. 6 Billion dollar man seems pretty high even for today's standards and 6 million dollar man could be almost anyone in a trauma center.

Good one!

From CNN/Money in 2008: What would he cost today?

quote:


1974 cost: $6 million
2008 inflation adj. cost: $26 million
Actual 2008 cost: Up to $100 million


Actual surgery not too bad...developmental costs, R&D, could skyrocket his price.

Loved that show as a kid. Although even back then the effects were kind of underwhelming.

I assume that's Oscar Goldman and the Six Million Dollar Woman with him in that pic?

Reminds me of the scene from "40 Year Old Virgin"...

“Wait – is that Steve Austin’s boss?”

Same.

My favorite two episodes were when he took on that killer tank, and bigfoot.

The episode where he has to fight a robot Oscar Goldman, when Steve knocks the face plate off the bot, scared me so bad I had nightmares.

watching them now, the bigfoot episodes would seem kinda cheesy...but back then they were some of my favorite episodes.

I thought the slow motion was stupid as hell back then too; though I mostly liked the show.
