Mike travels 1500 miles inland to a flooded mine where two men are trapped in a foul air pocket. He reaches them, but his dilemma is that there is only enough air in his tank to rescue the miners one-at-a-time and not enough air in the pocket for the remaining man to survive until he returns with more air. Who will go? Who will stay? How will he decide? Written by jimmie d

Brother, THIS Was TV!
25 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By the time I started grade school in 1959, "Sea Hunt" was firmly established as my favorite TV show. Scuba diving was becoming very "in" at the time and the adventures of an underwater troubleshooter was a cool alternative to all the cowboy, cop, private eye, superhero material flooding the airwaves at that time. Lloyd Bridges was a great choice to play the courageous protagonist, Mike Nelson. Not your classic style hero, but more of a working-stiff, guy-you'd-like-to-have-a-beer-with type who didn't laugh in the face of danger so much as grin and bear it. "Flooded Mine" was great archetypal "Sea Hunt" fare. Assigned to investigate a catastrophic mine collapse, Mike is shocked to find two miners still alive (barely) in a dank air pocket. No time to go back and get another tank and with time running out on the air in his own tank, Mike must do a "draw straws" bit to decide who will live and who will die. The two men? One a craven, self-centered coward, and the other, a stand-up family man. Whom will he rescue? Will he find a way to rescue both? Watch the episode. You know, I liked TV dramas better when they were like this: black-and-white, half-hour, tight, compact and, more often than not, syndicated, which meant that, in your town, they might come on at 10:30 on Saturday night, 4:30 on Sunday afternoon, or 5:30 on Thursday morning. Best of all, each episode was self-contained; none of this "Previously, on SEA HUNT" jazz. Oh, well, times change, but old geezers like me don't. I hope other "Sea Hunt" fans will watch this terrific episode and enjoy "Flooded Mine" as much as I did. Thanks, Lloyd, and Happy Fathoms.
