Yes, ”They Had The Technology”
For most of the Seventies this was the coolest TV programme on the planet.
It simply could not be missed for its mesmerising back-story that a former astronaut could be rebuilt (with superman advantages) to its fast paced “save the day” storylines.
This was fun with a capital “F” and millions watched it.
What is medically commonplace today was science fiction back then.
We were introduced to the word ‘bionic’ and Lee Majors was to be built with it giving him super strength and sensory powers.
This clever hook was the frame upon which rested the premise that this part man part technical “human being’ could be the hero and sort out the bad guys.
It comes as a very pleasant surprise then to report that ‘Our Man’ still holds up as pleasing and watchable entertainment.
In this first time ever release of the complete “ouvre’of the programme we are served up hours of fun and all round action packed entertainment.
Lee Majors in the starring role is compelling as the action hero who despite the setbacks always saves the day.
Wry and handsome Majors in his “jee shucks” country manner is the perfect leading man.
We the audience are always on his side.
Untroubled by doubt that is the bread and butter of our modern day hero Lee plays the part of Colonel Steve Austin, a man on a mission in each riveting episode.
So go on and reward yourself with a guilty pleasure.
Bliss out on an orgy of the Six Million dollar Man.
At the time of Lee Major’s big time arrival with this show he dated and married Farrah Fawcett, the fairest and most beautiful of “Charlie’s Angels”.
How cool is that?
Expensive but a guaranteed investment in entertainment fun.
