Storyline

Ten years after his retirement from the government, Colonel Steve Austin must again team up with Jaime Sommers to stop a terrorist group. Complicating matters for Austin are his estranged son Michael, who struggles for his father's acceptance as he graduates from flight school, and Jaime, who must cope with her and Steve's past. When Michael is severely injured in a crash, Steve must make the same decision about fitting him with bionics that he had to make with Jaime years ago after her accident.

Trivia

Steve's stated reason for his not assisting Chris Williams on his final mission, and thus not being there to possibly save Chris from death, was merely that Steve had retired from the O.S.I., and so he didn't want to participate in any more missions. Although it is not brought out in the story, however, an obvious implication is that another reason that Steve would not have wanted to accompany Chris Williams, is that he would have felt awkward working alongside someone who was Jaime's new heartthrob.

Goofs

When Steve Austin grabs a machine rifle in the final climactic battle, he bends the end of the gun using his super strength so the user can't fire it. We can see though that just before he bends the barrel of the gun, it is slightly bent forward already. The gun wouldn't have been able to fire beforehand anyway if this was the case. See more »

Quotes

Oscar Goldman: [looking at the name of his boat] Summer Maiden. Any perticular "Summer" in mind when you named her?
[Steve remembers flashbacks of Jaime and himself in love]
Steve Austin: Guess I couldn't forget her no matter how hard I tried.
Oscar Goldman: How hard did you try?
Steve Austin: Not very hard.

Poor writing, lame plot lines, and lackluster acting
15 August 2014 | by andyofneSee all my reviews

I was a big fan as a kid growing up the 70s so I know I would have watched this when it aired on TV. But I missed out on this... very bad production... I was living overseas in the Navy watching old episodes of Air Wolf and Knight Rider, I suppose. I'm kinda glad I missed out on this.

Something silly I picked up on... the villains drive one of those monstrous station wagons (that were finally fading in popularity not long after 1987) and after Steve Austin rolls the first one (and Jamie kicked out the passenger door) the bad guys go out and get the exact model/color car as a replacement. Either that or they had it repaired mighty fast.

Sometimes it's best to put a show to bed and leave it alone. This was one of those times.

I do agree with the person who wrote about the music. What were they thinking?

Oh, and, Brian Cranston was in this show. I didn't even recognize him.
