Storyline

Mike Nelson is a Scuba Diver in the days when it was still very new. He works alone and the plot was always mostly carried through his voice over narrations. These gave the show a flavor of a radio program. Typical adventures were finding a downed satellite or sunken treasure. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

some truth, some playing fast and easy with facts...
20 April 2003 | by (Burnet, Texas North America) – See all my reviews

I watch this show quite a bit when I was a teenager. Most of it was entertaining, usually factual. There was one glaring exception. In one episode, Bridges' character, Mike Nelson, waxed at great length about the number of people butchered by killer whales and about how all killer whales should be eliminated from the earth's oceans.(!) No, I do not think that Peter Benchley wrote that episode...
