* AtlantisIsBoring: This is said to one of the main problems of the series.
** To people who did watch the show, the core cast is sometimes criticized as not being as interesting as they could have been.
** Some of this may be fans of the later ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch. As plots in the original varied to include, needing surgery on a shark, rescuing scientists trapped in the arctic, stopping a hunter from slaying a whale, saving sealab from the rare but real red tide effect, going crazy from being stuck under sea, saving sealab from a quake caused by underwater drilling and to fighting for a probe against a giant squid. YMMV but to some they'd argue aren't boring.


** Even more so to some the characters are less endearing then others.
