  • Bionic MacGyver

    The first regular episode of the series was directed by Jeannot Szwarc (Jaws 2, Supergirl up to todays tv's Heroes) and made a fine job of it.

    We learn some technical details about colonel Austins inplants : His eye has infrared vision and a 20 x zoom. He can run a topspeed of 60 mph. Powered by atomics, the bionic parts shut down at subzero degrees.
    This is what happens when Steve is locked is a refrigerated chamber. Faced with his own limits he has to use his imagination and escapes in a MacGyver kind of way.

    Government scientist Dr. Bacon, gone bad, and his two aides
    meet a violent end at the hands of a recoverd bionic man.

    Serving a balanced mix of personal scenes and action this simple story brings a prime classic episode.
