    Sadly, this is one of those cases where an actor dies and I think “he was alive?”.

    But RIP. The Six MIllion Dollar Man was probably my favorite show as a kid, at least aside from Emergency!

    his character was kinda of bland, but is probably best known for the narration of the opening (or most of it)

    With nearly 200 credits on his resume’, it seems as if it was Richard Anderson’s CAREER that was ‘bionic’.


    Goodbye, “Oscar Goldman”. Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers never had a finer boss……..or better friend.

    Is there a better accolade than that for a life well lived?

    I like the way you think. Two of my favorite shows as a kid as well.

    TSMDM hit TV when I was 10 years old. Loved the show. Me and my buddy ran around doing everything in slo-mo, and made those bizarre sound effects with every move. :) Good times.

    On top of that, I have it to credit/blame for the still-existent photos of me in leisure suits. :o

    Indeed. RIP, Oscar.

    Anyone else have the Six Million Dollar Man doll as a kid? With the bionic extra arm and the red eye you could look through?
