The Man from Atlantis - Warner Archive Announces 2 MOD Sets with ALL the Remaining Stories


'The Complete TV Movies Collection' and 'The Complete Television Series' available next week

Back in late 2009, one of the Warner Archive Collection's early hit TV-DVD releases was The Man From Atlantis - The Pilot, a manufacture-on-demand DVD release of the first telefilm that eventually led to the regular weekly TV series. There were 4 telefilms in all, and then 13 regular episodes before the show was cancelled. The stars of the show were a pre-Dallas Patrick Duffy as the Atlantean, a pre-Doogie Howser Belinda Montgomery as the scientist who befriends him, and a post-Batman Victor Buono as the evil mastermind Schubert...and of course the submarine, The Cetacean.

Now the folks at the Warner Archive have discontinued their original release, because they are following it up with ALL THE REST of The Man From Atlantis, sold in two separate collections: one with all four pilot telefilms, and another one with the 13 regular episodes. For folks who bought the original DVD already, don't be upset that you're getting it again with the telefilms collection...because Warner has now remastered it for even better quality! Both of these MOD titles will begin shipping on July 26th from The WBshop (where it's exclusively available for now, but later on Amazon.com's CreateSpace program will also offer them). Here's the details about these two new sets, followed by package art at the bottom:

  • The Man from Atlantis - The Complete TV Movies Collection
    • $24.95 SRP
    • 366 minutes
    • 1.33:1 full screen video
    • English mono audio
        Mysterious mer-man Mark Harris washed ashore on the nations TVs in early '77 and quickly became a breakout hero. America fell hard for Atlantean amnesiac, generating big ratings for the Man from Atlantis pilot movie and its three subsequent follow-up TV movies. Starring newcomer Patrick Duffy and overseen by Robert Justman (Adventures of Superman, Star Trek, Then Came Bronson, Probe/Search), the original TV movies easily swim between the parallel genres of Science Fiction and Super-Heroics, creating a fantasy that is still fun and fresh today. This 2 disc collection contains all 4 TV movies. Also stars Belinda Montgomery. PILOT (Newly remastered!): Mark Harris washes ashore, possessing strange sea-faring powers but no memories. The Death Scouts: Mark battles scuba diver abducting aliens. The Killer Spores: Intelligent spores from space possess Mark in a bid to return to the yawning galactic gulf. The Disappearances: Scientists all over the world are disappearing - including Mark's associate, Elizabeth.
