Re: Revisiting The Six-Million Dollar Man...

After the pilot, Six-Million-Dollar Man started as one of those rotating movie features that were popular for a while in those days (e.g. Columbo and McCloud). I forget who he rotated with, though.

The early episodes were indeed very Bondian, and that was one of my favorite periods of the show. My other favorite period was toward the end when it was really off the wall, with space aliens and so forth. Both approaches worked well as far as I was concerned (although, for my taste, I would have preferred they be done with two separate characters).

It's been a long time since I've seen the pilot, but I actually remember it being pretty badly directed and edited; my impression at the time was that it was kind of amateurish.
