The Bionic Man

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've been watching the Big Bang Theory for a really long time and I completely love the show. I especially like how the characters are really into comic books and even dress up in their favorite action heroes from time to time. However, one things has always puzzled me, why is it that they never talk about Steve Austin (i.e., the bionic man played by Lee Majors in the 1970s). I mean, here is another type of action hero (grant it, he's not a comic book hero), but a hero none the less. For a character like Howard on the show, I'm sure that he would idolize him just as much as Sheldon idolized Spock. In fact, it would be kind of interesting to have Sheldon and Howard debate over who would win if both Spock and Steve Austin were trapped on a deserted island (or planet).

 

And who know, maybe there could be an episode in which Lee Majors would make a guess appearance on the show, just as other actors have in the past. Only in this case, instead of just being just Lee Majors (the actor), he could secretly be the bionic man by saving Sheldon from a falling shelf in one of the physics labs (using his bionic arm), or seem to appear in two places at once (because of his bionic speed). Everyone else on the set would just see him as Lee Majors, but it would be something that would just freak out Sheldon. I'm sure the writers of the show could come up with more bizarre and much more humorous situations for Lee Majors to be a part of on the show than what I have written here.

 

I think that having the Bionic Man on the show for one or even two episode would be great.

 

What do you think?

That would be awesome. The Six Million Dollar man is the kind of classic sci-fi that the guys would be into.

 

I bet they would have the opening narrative memorized "Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive....." 

 

I'm sure they've mentioned the Incredible Hulk TV show at least once.  It would be great to have a bit of

 

a laugh at the Bionic Man's expense (although when I was 6, I thought that show was [email protected]#ing awesome).

 

great idea !

LOL. I wonder if the guys could have had Howard even more nervous then he was at launch?

 

correction

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin {Howard W.} will be that man. Better than he was before. Better...stronger...faster."
