....do you remember with Patrick Duffy.......??


.....Man from Atlantis is an American science fiction television series that ran for 13 episodes on the NBC network during the 1977–78 season, following four television films that had aired earlier in 1977. Ratings success by these movies led to the commissioning of a weekly series for the 1977–78 season.......

Got it as a gag gift awhile back. Kind of dull after the second movie. There are some jarring discontinuity issues between the movies before you get to the TV series where the already-cash-poor production took a nose-dive. Still, there were some items of interest in it with some surprisingly strong female roles for that age and some interesting philosophical notions that are voiced, but not really tested or resolved in any sense.

I remember a 1970's era Dallas tune that referenced Man from Atlantis, sung to the tune of "I'm Only a Poor Little Sparrow:"

"I'm only a poor little Ewing,
JR always picks on me.
Sue Ellen's a drunk
and Lucy's a punk
And Bobby came out from the sea"
