The second television movie before the series began is a radical shift from the pilot movie. Hosts John S. Drew and Paul K. Bisson discuss the pros and cons of this second movie with Joseph Burns, major contributor to the DVD release of the Six Million Dollar Man series and webmaster of thesix1973.com.
Joseph Burns was born in Washington D.C., and grew up there until his family moved to California in the late 70's. A film and TV buff, he attended the Film/Video program at UC Santa Cruz, getting his bachelor's in 1996. After Film School, Joe moved to LA and worked in Post Production. He is the editor of "Skywalker: The David Thompson Story," a one hour sports documentary which aired on NBA-TV and was distributed on DVD by Image Entertainment.
In addition to video editing, Joe has developed websites, interactive CD-ROMs and DVDs. He operates the SMDM fan website "The Six 1973" and is a major contributor/admin at The Bionic Wiki. In 2010, he was recruited to advise Time-Life on The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Collection, and was interviewed for the set at the Pasadena Rock N' ComiCon last Spring.
Today Joe lives in San Francisco and is the owner of a very large cat named Fritz.
