    I'm amazed at how under-rated this series is. Here in Australia, most kids of that era grew up wanting to be trained in scuba diving, and the sport and recreation here has benifited enormosely from this show. Sea Hunt is a legend. Lloyd Bridges is the founder and father to an entertainment empire, and a huge part of the history of show business in the USA. Maybe the show was filmed in black and white.... (?) This could explain its lack of visibilty these days, because technology has moved so far, and people expect so much wizbang special effects these days. Sea Hunt made the beach and the sea a place of adventure, and helped me appreciate the wonders of nature. Like "Flipper" , "Sea Hunt" encouraged an interest in ecology and the environment that is now such a huge part of ourlives, this show has an influence that is bigger than it hoped to be.

    Find reruns on the "CW" cable network. My local affiliate carries them at 4:30 AM.

    You can find reruns of Sea Hunt on "THIS TV", if you get it in your area.

    Yeah, I get that channel here in Chicago (its local base). It comes over Comcast, RCN, and over the air for us at 04:30 Central Time.



    Update: FYI: Local Chicago broadcast channel is 25.2 on your digital tuner.

    Well, FYI: A quick check of Amazon.com seems to show the series is available, for a price. These offerings look to be copies of broadcast captures with varying quality and not a low price - $129 to $199. Yet, for real Sea Hunt lovers, it isn't that much. I did the same for "Twelve O'Clock High," find someone who is selling broadcast quality captures of the series.

    Another FYI: If you have a P2P application like Shareaza, you'll find there are some episodes you can download. I haven't done it so I can't comment on the quality, how quickly they download, etc.
