    Default The Bionic Man/Woman

    I got a huge kick out of these shows as a kid.

    The way technology seems to be advancing how long until these it is a reality?

    If you lost a limb would you want bionic replacements?

    If the bionic parts could be made to outperform the normal human parts should that be allowed?

    Here's a video link from the 6 million dollar man show!

    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    The Military is still working on their Super Soldier programs but how would you control such a person -Hell , they can't control ex-special forces -see the first Lethal Weapon movie or any of the Rambo movies -alot of these guys get addicted to killing .
    No . I would not want super powered limbs -if you were sitting in a theatre and an idiot next to you got a cell phone call and started chatting away -wouldn't you be tempted to squash his phone,if not him?

    Errrr - Lethal Weapon and Rambo aren't documentaries. I had the opportunity to serve with the Special Forces (with, not in) and didn't meet a single sociopath. Can't say the same for civilian life.

    Yeah the Universal Soldier program didnt really work out, once Dolph Lundgren regressed and started hacking off ears. the only one that turned out ok was Luke Devereaux.

    Yeah. I remember that show very vividly!

    I used to LOVE IT, still do! It ran concurrently with The Bionic Woman which I also like. A remake of The Bionic Woman was done last season, but it ended up being a flop!!

    I've always wondered what it would be like to have bionic limbs though!
