So last week I was about to go to bed (growl!) when I noticed that the Biography Channel had a show on Andre the Giant coming up. My curiosity was piqued but I was sleepy, so I hit the ol' record button of the DVR. Well, I got around to watching it the other day and was shocked and chagrined to discover that no mention was made of Andre playing the Bionic Bigfoot on multiple episodes of "The Six Million Dollar Man" in the 70's.
This is fairly unforgivable. Although I appreciate the program dedicating a good portion of it's time to analyzing how much food and liquor Andre could consume, to leave out Bionic Bigfoot is just shabby journalism.
Speaking of "The Six Million Dollar Man" - why isn't that show out on DVD by now? All you can get are crummy bootleg DVDs at sci-fi conventions and blurry bit-torrents (my preferred format, as it's "more free" than the bootleg DVDs).
Anyway, I will now do what the cowards at Biography could / would not do: pay homage to Andre's Bionic Bigfoot.
