Did You Know?


In "Sharks: Part 1" (1977) Steve Austin (Lee Majors) is aboard a nuclear submarine USS Stingray (SSN-501). "SSN 501" can be seen in a stock footage external shot of the submarine under water. Though fictional for this period in time, the last real USS Stingray was decommissioned following WWII. This same submarine was used previously in the Bionic Woman "Kill Oscar: Part III" (1976) - A shot while Jaime and Steve are on the submarine has a plaque showing that the boat it is "SSN 501". If Steve Austin were to be on any submarine, it would only be appropriate that it were a nuclear submarine, seeing as how the show title's Spanish translation is "El Hombre Nuclear." See more »


When the shark-cage cable snaps, there is a loud echoing "in dry air" crashing sound, whereas a breaking cable underwater would just produce a brief muffled pop. See more »

the Sharks beat the Jets
6 October 2006 | by soccermanzSee all my reviews

Since I also open up the IMDb entry on any Film that I am considering watching and more often than not find the comments useful and say so, I was amazed that nobody had posted one for "The Six Million Dollar Man: Sharks" as it appeared on UK TV yesterday. The Actors, Sets indeed everything seemed straight out of "Thunderbirds" except the Sharks all of whom except the baby one squeezed to death by Steve Austin were the stars so congratulations to the marine cameramen who captured most of their swimming shots including when they appeared to gnaw through steel cables at one pass. The opening sequence "we have the technology, we can rebuild him" was delightfully reminiscent but from then on it was all much as one could have expected except for the get out which was laughable - but still a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours so long as one is doing something else at the same time.
