Six Million Dollars Just Isn’t What It Used To Be…

…not that I’m turning down any recent offers, mind you, but I digress. You may recall that I opted out of my addiction…I mean, subscription…to cable television (almost two years ago) in favor of over-the-air broadcasting. As I wrote then, I was pleasantly surprised to find out there were a few dozen channels at my disposal. A couple of them are devoted to airing what they call “classic” TV shows.

One night, I was looking for something to watch, and stumbled across an episode of “The Six Million Dollar Man,” which was an honest-to-goodness STAPLE of my childhood TV viewing. And that’s saying something, because I watched a LOT of TV. As I eagerly watched this gem from the mid-1970’s, it became clear to me that, during its almost 40 years of storage, the recording media must have degraded with age, turning this once awesome show into a cheesy and predictable mishmash of physically improbable macho stunt heroics. It’s a shame they didn’t have a way of better preserving the film…curiously, though, the opening sequence wasn’t affected; it’s still cool as heck:

At EXAIR, you won’t find any stunt heroics…well, not outside our continuing series of Professor Penurious videos, anyway. You will, however, find that we’re very predictable. If you have questions about:

As for the cheesiness….well, sometimes, it is what it is. ‘nuff said.
