Editorial Reviews

He's the lone survivor of a lost civilization...thrust into ours. A giant storm tosses ashore a being who is both human and a creature of the deep. Mark Harris is the name given him by the astonished scientists who study and protect their remarkable find. Harris is equally astonished, a fish out of water eager to learn about us. Patrick Duffy (a year before beginning his legendary run on Dallas) plays the Atlantean in the origins movie that (along with three more films) preceded the cult-fave Man from Atlantis series. In this adventure, Harris uses his amazing underwater abilities to save mankind from a madman's (Victor Buono) plot to launch missiles from all the world's nuclear submarines!

I was excited about seeing this show again, but when I received my copy, I was terribly disappointed. First of all, the recording quality makes viewing almost unbearable. Secondly, based on the item description, I assumed that this recording included the aired episodes from the series. I assumed wrong. The recording that I received is a 96 minute recording of what appears to be the pilot to the series.

I have always been a fan of Patrick Duffy, people would know him from the TV show Step by Step and also Dallas this is all before that. I have loved this for sure people who love the old stuff like myself will love this also. I recommend this to fans who are into science fiction a man who cannot live without the ocean and breathes under water not human but looks human the man from Atlantis. It's been executed really well fans remember it was made before special effects were perfected and better developed but I don't care about that it's the concept the idea the imagination of the writers and the producers and developers that came up with it and the enjoyment you get from it this is what counts people are loosing that these days with all these action movies crashing, shooting killings etc as much as I enjoy them too this has meaning and substance.

I remember this show from when I was 10. Its just as good today as it was then. This pilot/movie tells the story of Mark Harris (Patrick Duffy) A man with webbed hands and gills who washes ashore after a storm,and agrees to work for the Foundation of Ocean Research to fight against a scientist who plans on destroying the world with nuclear weapons through mind control. To bad this show only lasted 13 episodes. Great 70's fun!

After a hurricane, a man's body floats ashore near a Navy outpost. They soon find that this is not a normal human. He is very similar to a mermaid. He agrees to work with Naval research in finding a missing submarine. Harris, the Man from Atlantis, soon finds an underwater city built by a mad scientist with nuclear war on his mind. It is up to Harris to stop him! Patrick Duffy (also stars on Dallas) stars as Harris.

DVD received in the time but I must to resent because it was different about the product information. Indeed the language audio was only english and not bilingual. But I have received the refund correctly. Congratulations for the sellers!

As we all know there are many older TV shows that don't hold up well. I'm happy to say that Man from Atlantis holds up exceptionally well!

The look of everyone, the acting, his dolphin like swimming, at all holds up. I also love the theme song from the show. I was really young when the show premiered and watching the pilot made me want to buy the entire series. Sadly it is not available.

As a side note, its also really interesting to see Patrick Duffy when he was young. I think he was the Brad Pitt of his generation (except on TV).

Buy the dvd, its 90 mins of pure nostalgia and fun. And hopefully they will release the entire series on DVD soon.

I have watched this over and over again as I'd watched it the first time when this TV show was first broadcast. Too bad "Man from Atlantis" had to not stay on the air for more time that it had first aired as a TV series some years back since Pat Duffy then went on to be a top star with the original "Dallas" TV show.Man From Atlantis

I purchased a copy of this movie on VHS from a seller on E-Bay. The copy must have been bootlegged or recorded from TV in the 70's so it was very hard to watch & hear the show; however, my husband is a huge fan of this show and I had to get it for him (thinking that it might never be released again). It was great to watch it again and anyone who ever saw this series would vouch that the special effects were great for it's time. This is a definite keeper and I hope that they don't wait too long to release the entire series to folks (say Christmas 2010 - hint-hint). I just don't understand why they keep the good stuff locked up for so long.
