Storyline

Tempest Key, Florida. Arthur Curry aka A.C. is a happy go lucky 20-something dive shop owner who lives on a houseboat next to the coast guard base where his caring adoptive father Lieutenant Tom Curry works. His best friend is Eva, the pretty owner of the local beach bar. It's been exactly 10 years since the tragic unexplained plane crash in which Arthur's mother disappeared without a trace and only young traumatized Arthur was found alive. In the accident, Arthur discovered that he somehow has the ability to breathe underwater which he later turned to good use. However, he's still burdened by survivor's guilt and hopes he'll one day find out what really happened to his mother. After rescuing some dolphins that he suddenly felt the need to rescue from the local Neptune World marine park, Arthur is arrested by the sheriff.

Quotes

Arthur Curry: Henry IV Parts I and II. Hmm. Didn't really know Shakespeare was into sequels.
McCaffery: I expect for you to have read them by next week.
Arthur Curry: Uh, I gave up book reports in sixth grade.
McCaffery: This is part of your training.
Arthur Curry: Right. See, when you said training. I thought you meant, you know, wielding tridents and doing cool stuff in the water.
McCaffery: All in due time. Don't worry. There's plenty sex and violence in there to keep you interested.
Arthur Curry: Can't you just hit the highlights and tell me how it ends?
McCaffery: The lesson isn't in the ending...

Aquaman Rules!
6 September 2006 | by lpk_sunnySee all my reviews

I can't believe the show didn't get picked up for the fall schedule. After seeing the pilot on iTunes I was hooked, and wanted more. In fact most people have commented that the CW has made a HUGE mistake by not picking it up (the average itune rating is 4 & half stars out of a possible 5). The casting was excellent (Justing Hartley without a shirt most of the series, what self respecting girl wouldn't watch?) the acting was superb, and the writing was amazing. The show was far better than some of the shows that got picked up, and even better than some returning shows. Who really needed "7th Heaven" for an 11th season when they could of had "Aquaman". The CW is making an incredible mistake and I hope other networks see the response that the pilot episode is getting and they snatch this gem of a show up.
