  • I Robot, You Bionic?

    This is an hilarious episode.

    A crew of bad, even mad scientists, (headed by actor Lloyd Bochner), make a robotic double of Steve Austin's Friend/Tennis partner, Major Sloan.

    The Synthetic man, radio-commanded by a, then revolutionary, now pre-historic, computer is... stupid. Steve, who still has a well functioning organic brain, quickly uncovers the ploy and makes a swift end to the day of this robot.

    The automat wears the skin of actor John Saxon, a perfect choice. He plays the robot in a rigid, even clumsy way. This strangeness combined with the funny interactions between Saxon and Majors makes this episode so good.

    The climax is an incredible, more than six minutes long battle, completely in slow motion, with fitting sound effects!

    Not to miss.
