His best friend is Eva, the pretty owner of the local beach bar. It's been exactly 10 years since the tragic unexplained plane crash in which Arthur's mother disappeared without a trace and only young traumatized Arthur was found alive. In the accident, Arthur discovered that he somehow has the ability to breathe underwater which he later turned to good use. However, he's still burdened by survivor's guilt and hopes he'll one day find out what really happened to his mother. After rescuing some dolphins that he suddenly felt the need to rescue from the local Neptune World marine park, Arthur is arrested by the sheriff. The day only gets more unnerving for Arthur when Eva semi-seriously threatens him with eviction and a strange intense man called McCaffery warns him about the ...

Quotes

Arthur Curry: Henry IV Parts I and II. Hmm. Didn't really know Shakespeare was into sequels.
McCaffery: I expect for you to have read them by next week.
Arthur Curry: Uh, I gave up book reports in sixth grade.
McCaffery: This is part of your training.
Arthur Curry: Right. See, when you said training. I thought you meant, you know, wielding tridents and doing cool stuff in the water.
McCaffery: All in due time. Don't worry. There's plenty sex and violence in there to keep you interested.
Arthur Curry: Can't you just hit the highlights and tell me how it ends?

The Atlantis myth takes form
28 July 2006 | by adame-dahmaniSee all my reviews

At last, the right show to revive the Atlantis myth.

I'm pretty interested about myths, more exactly the Bermuda triangle and sea monsters, mermaids... Actually, I've never found any interesting movies and/or TV show related to this topics. I'm well served with the Mercy Reef :P

It's pretty impressive for a pilot. It makes you get inside the whole story in a brilliant way. Actors are really impressive, they're strongly in their character, performing terrifically.The story on itself is well introduced. The decor is quickly planted, giving you time to concentrate on characters' role.

It seems that we're going to witness a kind of modern fairytale, involving an exiled prince from the legendary Atlantis, facing evil of his own people. Unnatural behavior, inhuman powers, morphing, and so on are at the rendezvous, deploying a minimum of creativity and imagination that should keep this show tuned, and satisfy the thirst of modern aquatic stories for more than one.

The FX are an undeniable part of the success, as sea creatures should be a big part of the buzz. We've imagine mermaids, but what'll see is more than a fantasy! It'll haunt your dreams ;)

This nowadays fairytale has began, beware to drown on it ;)
