An ambitious television reporter captures film footage of Steve in bionic action. She threatens to release the film unless she gets Steve's complete story. Oscar has one idea on how to handle it, but Steve has another - take her with them on vacation and convince her not to do what she's planning. What they all don't know is that her news director has bigger plans for her story, plans that will subsidize his early retirement, and he's willing to do almost anything to make it happen. Joining John and Paul is Time Life Six Million Dollar Man DVD set chief consultant, Matt Hankinson. Check out footage from the episode featuring music by Oliver Nelson.
Matt Hankinson writes, "Besides the Time-Life DVD release of SMDM (for which I served as "chief creative consultant"), I had previously worked with Herbie J Pilato on his long-in-development The Bionic Book , and served as consultant and wrote the episode copy for Rittenhouse Archive's 2004 Six Million Dollar Mantrading card series. I also attended both Bionicon conventions (2006 & 2007) and several of Lindsay Wagner's fan events. With the exception of Lee Majors, I've been fortunate to have met all the cast members and producer Kenneth Johnson. I've known both Paul and Joe from our years at the online forum, and have met Paul in-person at the Bionicons and Lindsay's events.
"I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I've been a HUGE fan of both bionic shows since I first saw the SMDM pilot movie when I was seven years old. It's literally been a life-long fascination and dedication for me. Getting to work so extensively on the SMDM DVD release was like a dream-come-true, and being able to bring a few friends along for the ride made it extra special."
