  • Nifty Little Detail: Bionics Don't Sweat!

    I was 11 when the show premiered, and I hadn't been allowed to watch the TV movies, so this episode was also my first exposure.

    The previous 2 reviews really hit the nail on the head, so I'll just supply this little observation I made when watching it again for the first time as an adult on Sci-Fi Channel about 12 years ago...

    After Austin escapes from the freezer, and he breaks into his trademark strides (as the hearbeat sound increases), and the framerate changes from normal-motion to slow-motion, notice how his shirt is sweat-stained on his chest, left armpit and sleeve... but his right side is bone dry!
    I think that's the only time we're shown that bionics don't sweat. (Just like Dr. Dolenz's robots!)
