Formulaic and repetitive, but fun in a silly kind of way.
Oh my, what's Bobby from Dallas doing swimming like a fish?
That was my initial reaction to this movie when it first came out. The film and its resultant series are not too bad. However, the series fell into the "Incredible Hulk" zone straight away and never recovered. What's the Hulk zone? Well, it's where you know that (in the Incredible Hulk) David Banner will invariably become angry at least twice in each show, no matter what else happens. In short, an over-used plot device.
With Man from Atlantis it's the same, except you knew that in every episode our fishy hero would be be caught or trapped away from water and begin to dehydrate only to be saved by his trusty side-kick (Belinda Montgomery).
It's formulaic and repetitive, but fun in a silly kind of way. Just don't look for any deep and meaningful stuff.
