a classic example of uninspired, cheaply made TV
7 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Sea Hunt" wasn't great television, but few episodes were out-and-out bad. This, unfortunately, is one of them. It's risible throughout, provoking almost constant laughter at the over-written dialog, technical errors, and the characters' seemingly foolish/careless/poorly-motivated/possibly illegal behavior.

The plot seems to have been "inspired" by "What can we do with a Japanese submarine full of nerve gas?", with the "drama" driven by "What dumb thing will someone do next?".

There's an overly long scene of Mike Nelson giving mouth-to-mouth to a male diver, and when Doctor Winnick smooths the unconscious Mike's hair, one wonders what he's thinking. When Mike asks the doctor "What's in this can?", you hope a spring snake will pop out. (It doesn't.)

Turning out a weekly TV show on a tight budget isn't easy. But there's no excuse for something this poor.
