Both Marvel and DC probably could have sued the creators of this dull
action-drama into bankruptcy. It was a thinly veiled rip-off of the former's
Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and of the latter's Aquaman. ... more Worse, very little
happened, aside from the title character (Patrick Duffy) swimming ...
endlessly. And supposed bad guy Victor Buono chuckling maniacally. At
least someone was having fun. And for you fans of Duffy's later TV hit, "Dallas," there's no
truth to the rumors that he woke up from a dream only to find that "Man From
Atlantis" never happened.
