The Six Million Dollar Man was a popular American television series that aired on the ABC network from 1974 to 1978. The show starred Lee Majors, Richard Anderson, and Martin E. Brooks in lead roles, along with several other supporting actors. The show was based on a novel titled Cyborg, written by Martin Caidin, and followed the story of Steve Austin, an astronaut and test pilot who gets involved in a tragic accident. As a result of the accident, Steve is severely injured, and his body is almost completely shattered. However, thanks to advanced bionic technology, he is rebuilt and restored to full health, with superhuman strength and other abilities beyond what any normal human could hope to possess.

This new Steve Austin is now known as the "Six Million Dollar Man," so named for the amount of money it took to rebuild him. He can run at incredible speed, lift massive weights, and withstand extreme temperatures and conditions. He also has a bionic eye and ear that allow him to see and hear far beyond what any normal human is capable of. All of these abilities make him a valuable asset to the government, and he is often called upon to undertake dangerous missions and assignments that require his unique skills.

Throughout the show, Steve Austin is depicted as a brave and loyal character, dedicated to helping others and fighting for what is right. He often finds himself in difficult and dangerous situations, but he relies on his superhuman abilities, as well as his sharp intellect and resourcefulness, to overcome any obstacle that comes his way. Along with his trusty team of allies, including OSI director Oscar Goldman (played by Richard Anderson) and Dr. Rudy Wells (played by Martin E. Brooks), he battles against a series of formidable foes, ranging from enemy agents to rogue scientists and dangerous criminals.

One of the most notable aspects of The Six Million Dollar Man was its groundbreaking use of special effects and technology. The show was one of the first to make extensive use of slow-motion and other visual effects to depict Steve's bionic abilities, and it set a high bar for other science fiction and action shows that followed in its wake. The show's iconic opening sequence, featuring a slow-motion shot of Steve running through the woods, has become an enduring pop culture symbol of the 1970s.

Overall, The Six Million Dollar Man was a groundbreaking and widely popular television series that captured the imaginations of audiences around the world. Its compelling storyline, memorable characters, and groundbreaking special effects made it a cultural touchstone of the 1970s, and it continues to inspire and entertain viewers to this day.

The Six Million Dollar Man is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (108 episodes). The series first aired on March 7, 1973.
