Greatest show Ever!!!!!!
24 September 2002 | by (American Samoa) – See all my reviews

There haven't been many shows about dolphins, but of the shows about dolphins, this is right up there. Sure, "Flipper" is the classic choice, but think about it: could that dolphin talk or what? I mean, how did he know they were in trouble? Flipper was just Lassie with fins. The dolphins on "Dolphin Cove," however, reminded me more of Dan Marino. They were very smart, but they never won the Super Bowl.
