Let's Reminisce !, 22 March 2012

I won't go critic on this, because the last time I have watched it was the very first time I've had, and that belongs to another time, older time, so.. let's reminisce.

It was the first half of the 1980s. We had only 2 TV channels in Egypt. I was a child, maybe 7 or 8 year old. And I remember well that I was amazed and amused.

The submarine was a hero apart. I was waiting it with passion, seeing it as sophisticated vehicle to discover the unknown (Though, the vehicle that owned my imagination at the time, forcing me to build a copy of it, randomly of course, was the plane of Tales of the Gold Monkey!).

Mark was interesting character for me back then. I even used to call the show "Mark's show", or "Mark : man came from Atlantis". His hands in specific had my head spinning. Now, know this : I went to fill our bathtub with water, nearly daily, then put my hands in it for a long long time, just for the sake of having hands like mark's. Somehow I believed that being in water for some time gives you those correlated, frog's kind of, fingers !

Else matters fascinated me about Mark, like the way how he wasn't producing any bubbles underwater (I mean from his nose and mouth !). Plus, his eyes. They never blinked underwater. Apparently, a lot of efforts were spent to perfect tricks like these.

Mark's girl was sweet. But something like "they wouldn't get married" used to come across my mind. I don't remember why, but maybe because he's a guy who loves to be in the water longer than anybody?, or maybe because he dresses funny??

Everything was tame, I don't remember something spooky or violent. It managed to be unpredictable and dreamy in every episode. And it made me love scientists as guys who live pretty cool life, have adventures for all the time, and meet different worlds everyday.

One episode I won't forget, it was about that magical man who causes everybody he shakes hands with a hysteria of laughing; it was original, funny, and surprising too; because I wouldn't imagine that such a nice guy might be evil as it turned out to be; I doubt that that character was played by Pat Morita, best known later as Mr. Miyagi, well, I won't look this up, let that area of my dreams as a kid untouched.

It was, as I love to call it, the childhood of the American TV. Those ideas were pure and simple. Now, I don't find that a lot, or at all. The TV, along with the world maybe, become darker as time goes by I think !
