Dumb Murderer
21 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two interesting aspects of this episode. One, the actor portraying the police lieutenant coughs uncontrollably in the first scene, but covers it with some decent ad lib dialogue (I guess the director opted not to re-shoot the scene; remember, this was in the days of film, not video). And two, Tyler (frequent series guest star Leonard Nimoy) should have seen he was being set up right from the start.

While Sea Hunt was based on then relatively-new SCUBA technology, the series made an earnest effort to incorporate real science into the show (perhaps reflecting the U.S. obsession with Sputnik and space exploration at the time). So we learned about nitrogen narcosis, re-breathers, helium-oxygen mixtures, midget submarines and other neat stuff throughout the series, although in this episode Mike's "gas-absorbing" pill was a tad artificial. Anyway, justice prevailed once again, as it invariably did on 1950s television.
