"The Six Million Dollar Man started off as a novel by [Martin Caidin] called Cyborg, but over the course of its development from book to movie to TV show, it not only changed name, it changed tone.
The book is essentially a thriller that tries to ground itself in reality as much as possible to make Steve Austin a super-spy. Sure he has a bionics left arm (yes, bionics in the book, not bionic), bionics legs and bionics eye. But he can't feel anything in his bionics limbs and his bionics eye won't let him see, only take pictures. And sure, he's very strong, but when he kicks a golf ball, that bionics toe of his still gets crushed by the impact.
It was bionics, but still tried to be relatively aware of the laws of physics and what was practical."

"Members of the public could earn cash by monitoring commercial CCTV cameras in their own home, in a scheme planned to begin next month.
The Internet Eyes website will offer up to £1,000 if viewers spot shoplifting or other crimes in progress.
The site's owners say they want to combine crime prevention with the incentive of winning money.
But civil liberties campaigners say the idea is 'distasteful' and asks private citizens to spy on each other.
The private company scheme - due to go live in Stratford-upon-Avon in November - aims to stream live footage to subscribers' home computers from CCTV cameras installed in shops and other businesses.
If viewers see a crime in progress, they can press a button to alert store detectives and collect points worth up to £1,000.
Internet Eyes founder James Woodward said: 'This is about crime prevention.
'CCTV isn't watched, it isn't monitored, and not enough cameras are watched at any one time.
'What we're doing is we're putting more eyes onto those cameras so that they are monitored'."
