SMALLVILLE was the only live-action DC superhero show in town for many years, but did you know it almost had a sister series about the adventures of AQUAMAN? From producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar came MERCY REEF, a superhero show that's basically FLIPPER but if the dolphin and the human were the same guy.
MERCY REEF (aka AQUAMAN) never made it past this legendary pilot episode, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? This week, GEEK HISTORY LESSON podcast co-hosts Ashley V. Robinson and Jason Inman join your usual hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to fish this pilot out of the murk, dissect it, and find out just how close we came to getting a good Aquaman tv series as our JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE continues!
And hey! Ashley V. Robinson and Jason Inman are also the co-creators of the upcoming comic book JUPITER JET, in stores December 6, 2017! Pre-order it now, and follow them on Twitter at @AshleyVRobinson, @Jawiin, @GHLPodcast and @JupiterJetComic!
