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

Born in 1947 and raised watching tens of thousands of hours of tv (am I the only living person who watched all the episodes of Whirlybirds - four times?), Sea Hunt is a real childhood memory for me. It was fun, it was cool and it was on every week. We were so innocent in those days, audiences would watch just to see scuba diving. The only show I looked forward to more was Science Fiction Theater ("Hello, I'm your host, Truman Bradley.")
One odd touch sticks in my mind these forty years later. I'm thinking it must have been deliberate. Each and every episode - I swear - seemed to use one particular line of dialog. At some point in an underwater scene, Mike Nelson utters with surprise - in narration, of course - "And then I saw it!" Is there an insider out there who can shed light on this phenomenon? Or, heaven help me, does 30,000 hours of television actually turn your brain to jello?
