      The show, Sea Hunt: Underwater Curtain from May 1959, began harmlessly enough with diving expert Mike Nelson (Lloyd Bridges) in the ocean with a married couple, Ken and Joan, who were friends of his. The fun is cut short when a sort of alarm goes off, and shortly, Nelson realizes that there are some dangerous folks around.

      While the dangerous folks are a bit undefined, it is some kind of

      international intrigue, and that turned me off. I’m tired of these types of stories. That said, what I did like were all of the underwater scenes, and this show had plenty of those moments. We got to see the divers swimming around a lot, and that’s what the show is about, except for the fact that there isn’t much attention to sea life in this thirty minutes.

      • The concentration is on the sunken vessel that is being visited by the ‘bad guys’.

        Playing Ken and Joan are Jack Hogan and Jan Harrison. Harrison might as well be a regular considering how many shows of Sea Hunt she’s appeared in. Hogan has been in at least one other that I can think of as I write this review. Hogan’s performance in Underwater Curtain is strong.

        He’s a good actor, and he adds personality to his portrayals. I’m not sure how well he and Harrison do as a couple, though, and for the most part, Harrison stands around doing lookout duty and then screeching about the potential of being caught.

        Overall, the show was decent, but there is almost too much of just swimming around trying to escape detection. There wasn’t a lot of variety in what happened.
