"By now, my lungs were begging for air!"

No, it’s not Lloyd Bridges’s Sea Hunt, it’s that perpetual crossword-answer-of-six-letters-for-"TV Tarzan," Ron Ely in the Mike Nelson role. This time, Mike’s a widower, in order to accomodate the Eye Candy daughter Jennifer. Not as high-tension as an episode of Flipper, but it did have pretty pictures. Twenty-two episodes and it bubbled away.
