Man from Atlantis is a short-lived American science fiction/fantasy television series that ran for 13 episodes on the NBC network during the 1977-1978 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 1977-1978 season, but it was cancelled at the end of the first season due to a declining audience and high production costs.
An impish little man enters an underwater station and causes the crew to become irrational simply by touching them. After three crewmen die, the F.F.O.R. hears Duke, the last crewman, talking over the radio in a childish manner and investigates. Mark swims over and brings Duke over to the Cetacean, not knowing the imp has stowed aboard.
Note: This was the last episode that co-starred Belinda J. Montgomery as Dr. Elizabeth Merrill; her screen credit was struck from the show’s introduction in later episodes.
