It's amazing what captivates us as children; we're given to suspension of disbelief far more then than we are as adults. So, when I first saw the 'Man From Atlantis' pilot in the WB Archive catalogue, I jumped at it, and shockingly, wasn't the least bit disappointed, even from an adult standpoint. The writing was good and the acting was solid, although some of the effects were laughable even for 1978 standards.

When WB announced the remaining three 'pilot' movies were being released, I couldn't wait to get my webbed hands on them.

Although the remainder of the movies and the overall series fail to live up to the pathos of the original movie, there are some good, entertaining moments. It would be interesting to see how this series / concept would be handled today, but I'm just as glad that no one's tried to do that (yet). There's a certain innocence to this series that started to wane as the cynical '80s approached, and things haven't been quite as innocent since then.

I'll take my Mark Harrises as wide-eyed and innocent as they can make them.

      Comments about Man from Atlantis: The Complete TV Movies Collection:

      Seen the movie on my dvd at home. It was a
      great series back in the late 70's. To bad
      it didn't last longer. Patrick Duffy was a
      great actor for the part as a water breathing
      man.

                      I really enjoyed the original Man From Atlantis T.V. show. This has the pilot movie plus 3 other made for T.V. movies! I thought I had seen them all but found out I hadn't & it was such a joy to discover "new" shows that I hadn't seen! The only problem was that the screen would go "black" when there would have been a commercial when it was shown on T.V. & that sort of broke up some of the ongoing experience of watching the movie.

                        Between this and the other "Man from Atlantis" collection all episodes are provided. The remastering of the show was top notch. Too bad that places like Netflix, [@] and Hulu don't try to pick this up. It would be a great addition to their library.
