The Six Million Dollar Man

Grievously injured in the crash of an experimental aircraft, Colonel Steve Austin's shattered body is covertly rebuilt via the miracle of modern science known as bionics. Equipped with atomic-powered limbs that make him "better, stronger, faster" than the average mortal, Austin can now run at speeds exceeding 60 miles per hour, overturn cars with ease, and spot an encroaching enemy from over a mile away. Under the watchful eye of OSI director Oscar Goldman, Steve repays his debt to the taxpayers by taking on perilous missions of a highly classified nature. Season 1 chronicles Steve Austin's amazing metamorphosis from "a man barely alive" to cyborg to patriotic superspy. Armed with futuristic abilities, Austin is dispatched to do battle with kidnappers, arms smugglers, evil scientists, political assassins, and a diabolical robot—with time enough to spare to counsel a troubled astronaut and clear his dead father's name.

The original pilot episode was not called “To The Moon and the Desert“  That was the title given to it for syndication purposes after the series ended its ABC run. It was only 80 minutes long so they added foootage from several other episodes to get it long enough for 2-1hr episode and gave it the new title. The original title was simply “The Six Million Dollar Man” when aired in March of 1973. It used to be listed correctly but someone changed it without doing their homework. Please fix it.
