Last evening after dinner, my doorbell rang!
It was my fellow Postie buddy Mike working overtime delivering Parcels.

And guess what he had for me?!!??!!

Over 30 years of waiting have all paid off....
This is the Third Happiest Day of my Life!

So far I have only had the chance to watch a couple of the documentaries,
but I am thoroughly impressed by everything I have seen so far.
The packaging is amazing! The restoration of the video is fantastic! The bonus features are incredible!
Time Life really delivered!!!

So after doing further research, I have learned that the 106 episodes and movies are on only 12 Blu Rays.  Yes, an old 4x3 1970s series has a lot less information than modern shows, but still, up to TEN EPISODES per disk ,is a lot of compression.  :s

But the site DVDBeaver gave it a positive review and the posted screen caps look good...

Though after reading through the Blu Ray Forum, I learned that these are not the original uncut broadcast episodes as on the Time Life collection.  These are the Universal syndication package episodes, so they are all slightly edited/trimmed.  Plus, some episodes are further slightly edited to meet German Broadcast Standards.   And because they are using the syndication package, some episodes are missing... for example, the classic three part KILL OSCAR (my absolute favourite episodes!) is absent because it is part of the Bionic Woman syndication package.

So, less tempting now.....

However, France's Elephant Films is supposed to be preparing a SMDM HD series release too.... hhhmmmm....  :p

Yeah, I've read into all this too Bob.  I am holding back until someone brings out a definitive set on more discs (less compression).  Also, if a company like Network on Air (a UK based company who have done some incredible remasters - mostly on UK shows though) could get hold of the original negatives, the series would get a frame by frame restoration which would look incredible.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something like that may eventually happen for Six Million Dollar Man.

I didn't see this 6-million spoof from 90s sketch show 'Goodness Gracious Me' anywhere on the internet, I thought it might be enjoyed by Steve Austin fans:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09YMTKH8..._p4CPJ0i4nPA4Ka2lCrZg0Ck0plyv_Ef9vgmW2yzJSeik

Still awaiting specific details such as is the a brand new transfer or the German one?
Is it the original televised episodes or the edited syndicated package ones?
Will it include the Bionic Woman crossover episodes?
New bonus features? Will the old BF from the Time Life set be included?

Man, I should've waited just A LITTLE BIT longer before springing for the DVD set.

Does this mean some HD remakes of your earlier Cyborg edits? Updated ones? More ideas you didn't explore before? You've probably got six million ideas, don't you?

Yes, I do plan on going back and rebuilding my CYBORG series... hopefully making them faster, stronger, better than they were before!

Now if only Universal or La La Land Records would do a release of the Oliver Nelson soundtrack, and life would be bionically perfect! lol
