  • Episode Description
  • After a violent storm at sea, the inert body of a man is found on the beach near the Naval Undersea Center. But this is no ordinary man. Equipped with webbed hands and gills instead of lungs, he can breathe underwater, swim faster than a dolphin and dive to incredible depths. He is nursed back to health by Doctor Elizabeth Merrill and given the name Mark Harris. In return Mark agrees to work for the Foundation of Ocean Research and his first assignment is to seek out a missing submarine carrying top military officials. Swimming to incredible depths, Mark discovers an enormous undersea habitat constructed by Mr. Schubert, a maniacal scientist who plans to destroy all the nations of the world with their own nuclear weapons through an ingenious method of mind control.moreless

  • This is a science fiction show about a man who is found on a beach who can breath under water. A marine scientist saves his life and he works with her to recover a new sub with her friend on board. This is complicated when Mark meets the bad guy.

    • Elizabeth: You still remember nothing about where in the ocean you come from? Mark: Perhaps when I'm deep in the ocean I will remember. Elizabeth: Perhaps when you're deep in the ocean, you'll forget about us.

    • Dr. Schubert: For 3,000 years, they've destroyed our land, air, water. Now they're gonna finish each other off in one last big war. Mark: How do you know that? Dr. Schubert: Well, mainly because I'm gonna start it.

    • Dr. Schubert: Do you believe that's possible, Mark, water-breathing man? Mark: When he learns to breathe water, he will be other than a man.

    • Officer: But then again we could be a little old fashioned there. What do you think, chief? Ernie: Well it keeps the tails from getting caught in the cracks. Mark: You have tails? Ernie: Yeah they put 'em in the same time they put in the gills. Mark: I see. Elizabeth: Oh these divers and their jokes.

    • Phil: How are all the frogs and dogs? Elizabeth: Oh, I got promoted to dolphins, how about you?
