  • Does lightning ever strike twice...?

    9.1
    For Deadly Replay, the risky move of playing a game of revisionism (of sorts) is utillised, as Oscar reveals to Steve that his original mishap was more than just bad luck, all very fine, except that Steve is attempting to "get back on the horse". Not the most freshest plot, so the drama and tension levels instead step in to create layers of thickness which could easily be cut with a chainsaw. Really impressive support cast (Clifton James, Jack Ging) push this one along, while Steve finally gains sone peace of mind, in the process helping to put his inadvertent assassin in a nice cold cell. Nice action packed way to spend an hour.moreless
  • It wasn't an accident, Steve.

    6.9
    NASA-based stories are usually a return to basics for the bionic man. This episode takes us back to the core.



    Colonel Steve Austin is invited for a testflight with the ill-fated HL-10, in which he nearly lost his life. For the proto-type plane it is the last chance before cancelling.



    Oscar Goldman informs him the crash was probably sabotage. But despite the warnings, Steve goes ahead feeling this is a demon he has to tame.



    A fair part of this episode looks like a dissection of the intro with various stages of the crash. These repetitions, along with all the scenes where Steve climbs in and out of the plane, or just sits in it, slow down the action. Fortunately the near crash finale lifts it back up.



    Steve learns that one of his old friends is a saboteur on the payroll of a rival plane constructor. Unwillingly this traitor was responsible for Colonel Austin's bionic future. This aspect should have been more accentuated within the episode.



    Boss and agent get closer as Oscar repeatedly calls Steve his 'pal'.

    What a pleasure it must be to work at the OSI.moreless
  • Steve tests the plane that almost ended his life

    9.9
    Great episode this. A good example of the Six Million Dollar Man. Steve faces his demons and flys the plane that almost ended his life. This time it almost happens again....after its sabotaged in an effort to get the plane and it\'s testing scrapped by a rival project. It comes to light that Steve\'s first mission was also tampered with. Steve\'s bionics save his life with the plane hurtling to earth he manages to bend the joystick back and control the plane for a landing.



    great part at the end...when Steve walks over to the plane on his own....i give this episode a 9.9moreless
