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>

Trivia

When Lloyd Bridges complained about the weight of his twin air tanks during topside re-takes, the art director designed twin tanks made of balsa wood and had them painted silver. Only in the earliest episodes is Bridges using real tanks for above surface scenes See more »

The classic TV series that started a national craze
5 June 2003 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This was a show to watch and it was just that....A Man's Show! "Sea Hunt"(Syndicated,1958-1962)was just the beginning of a production empire that was created by Ivan Tors,who would bring some of the most adventurous shows ever produced including the classic shows like "The Aquanauts" "Flipper","Gentle Ben","Primus",and so much more. It also at the time when it was still new the "scuba diving" craze,and from there it launch a new nationwide phenomenon and it still going strong today,thanks to Lloyd Bridges,who is no longer with us,but still left us with some great memories of the show and some of his undersea adventures that are associated with this series.

Lloyd Bridges stars as Mike Nelson,a professional diver who lives for adventure under the sea and deals with the experiences of his outgoing adventures as a underwater scuba diver in which some of his adventures are narrated through as he dives down into the deep from some breathtaking scenary and some hidden dangers beneath the waves. The show display some beautiful undersea photography and this is what the show was based on as Mike Nelson goes up against the unexpected each week and no matter how the odds were,he always gets the job done.

Yes,Mike Nelson was a Man's man! A Real Man. Tough and ready for action.

However,there were some guest stars that appear on the show as well and those that were starting out including several guest appearances from Leonard Nimoy,Bruce Dern,Dennis Hopper,Jack Nicholson,June Lockhart, Dick Sargent,and not to mention Lloyd Bridges'own son Beau Bridges in some of the segments.

After the series went off the air in 1962,the producers decided to make a feature length motion picture based on this series and it was to be shown in breathtaking color,but can someone tell me is this out on video?

I haven't seen this show since the early 1970's,but most recently,the OLN-Outdoor Life Network has digitally remastered some of the episodes from its original negatives and it comes on daily in certain markets on OLN (Check local listings for times). Thank you OLN for bringing back some good childhood memories!
