    Shown 12 Oct 1975
    Shown 12th November 2000

    This is the sequel to a previous episode where Steve Austin (Lee Majors - ) encounters a Japanese soldier who did not know that WW2 had ended.

    A caucasian boy has been seen running wild in the Asian jungles. Majors and the Jap head into the jungle to find the boy and bring him back to civilisation. The boy has shoulder-length hair and wears a loin cloth, but apart from that there is no phyiscal sign that he was raised by wolves!

    Shown 16 Nov 1975

    Steve has a device installed in his hand that gives him a blue flash in his bionic eye when it detects microprocessors. He then goes undercover as a longshoreman (a docker), disguised with an earring and a fake moustache. In other words, this episode is like something copied from a more or less mundane and average cop show. Of note, at the start of the episode we do not see the villains kill their victim - they drive him away, and later report his demise. What a pathetic piece of anti-violence censorship!

    Reviewed Fourth Week, September 2000

    Like the original Bigfoot episodes, this was written by Kenneth Johnston. Although Colonel Steve Austin (Lee Majors - ) is the star of the show, he is only a guest-star in the second episode! The reason is, it was a cross-over with Bionic Woman .

    In the first episode, Austin has another encounter with the Sasquatch robot - this time it looks more like Richard Kiel than Andre the Giant. He was actually played here by Addams Family TV actor Ted Cassidy. The robot is now working for Colony rebels, led by John Saxon ( Planet Earth ). The nuclear power pack in Austin's legs bursts and he starts to die of radiation poisoning.

    Steve teams up with an art-thief babe to break into an art gallery. However, once a thief, always a thief. Typically for a moralistic 1970s show, she has a selfless motive.

    The Russian Ambassador is played by Bruce Glover ( Diamonds are Forever ).
