Cyborgs - A Bionic Podcast: "The Blue Flash" with Guest Pal Billy Flynn

Steve goes undercover as a longshoreman to help a fellow O.S.I. agent recover stolen microchips. He's equipped with a new sensor device that will cause a "blue flash" in his bionic eye when he passes his hand over the microchips. The death of his partner only makes Steve more determined to get the stolen goods recovered and the culprits caught. A wrinkle in all this though is the woman who runs the boarding house he stays at and her son, Ernie (Rodney Allen Rippy). She has been captured by the smugglers and her life is in danger.

Cyborgs - A Bionic Podcast: "The Bionic Criminal" with Guest Pal Matt Hankinson

Oscar authorizes the reactivation of Barney Hiller (Miller) as an experiment to see if it is possible to activate and reactivate bionic units when needed. Steve objects, but it is too late.

For Barney, it's an opportunity to get back on the race track as he's lost his edge ever since his accident. When this doesn't work, Barney lashes out in frustration at his potential sponsor nearly killing him. Barney is unaware that the man survived and is blackmailed by a former OSI scientist to commit crimes.

Can Steve find Barney without doing an "I told you so" dance for Oscar and Rudy? What's the deal with the name change? And what's the deal with Rudy? These questions and perhaps a few more will be answered in this episode of Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast.

Joining John and Paul is Time Life Six Million Dollar Man DVD Collection consultant Matt Hankinson.

Anyway, James Kuhoric has written a commentary on the last issue for Comicvine.

Actor Denny Miller Has Died at the Age of 80

Here at the Six Million Dollar Blog, I was saddened to hear today of the passing of actor Denny Miller. I grew up watching him guest star in virtually every TV show I watched.

By sheer luck, I had the privilege of guest-hosting the Cyborgs podcasts that covered the two Six Million Dollar Man episodes in which Mr. Miller guest-starred, "The Pal-Mir Escort" and "Target in the Sky".

Here he is in "The Pal-Mir Escort" looking way too big to be driving that car.

I still vividly remember his appearance on Gilligan's Island, even though I haven't seen the episode in several decades.

I'd say I'll miss him, but I won't, because I can watch him work anytime I want. Think I'll watch "Target in the Sky" again tonight.
