Bill, remember, it's better to ask forgiveness than seek permission. Besides, I don't recall either of us needing an actual bona fide reason to imbibe.
OK, I guess we will be the first two players!ScubaLawyer wrote: ↑Sun May 06, 2018 9:14 pmBill, remember, it's better to ask forgiveness than seek permission. Besides, I don't recall either of us needing an actual bona fide reason to imbibe.
Oh, absolutely include the mismatched surface/underwater shots, and any other discrepancy or deviation from reality. Just saw an early shot in California episode where he was supposed to be on a job in Florida and there were large hills/mountains in the background. Also, underwater shots where they are supposed to be very deep and their bubbles are breaking the surface right over their heads. The early episodes also seem to lump air embolism, "rapture of the deep" and the bends as the same thing. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Sea Hunt. I used to flop around on the floor with my dimestore mask and fins on in front of the TV when I was a kid, pretending to be Mike Nelson (still do when my wife isn't looking!).
Man, what fun! If I lived closer I'd love to join in. But, southwestern Ohio is a bit of a commute!SurfLung wrote: ↑Mon May 07, 2018 9:11 amThis is actually a big part of the fun at Sea Hunt Jerry's annual "Sea Hunt Night" up here in Minnesota. Jerry rustles up around 20 divers... Some vintage and some newbies... We all try out double hose vintage gear in the Aqua Venture Dive Shop Pool. Then we drink pop, eat pizza, and watch Sea Hunt Episodes in one of the Dive Shop's classrooms. Last time, the dive shop said we could bring our own beverages but so far no one has brought anything but soda pop. Jerry knows all of the episodes by heart and would be the first to call out bloopers... But he is a non-drinker. So, that would leave the rest of us blotto.
Good point, LB. I'm sure there are others that would prefer a different "reward". The "Game" can obviously be played in any way you and the group you are watching with want. If there is a reward for catching a blooper you could make those rewards chocolate chip cookies, a kiss from a Mermaid, a sardine, or whatever you can all agree upon. Or maybe the winner could charge a fee for driving the loaded participants home, but that could be a disgusting task if you lack a good sense of humor at the time.mrepi2000 wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 5:42 pmI would suggest, in the spirit of fellowship, if anybody actually plays, they would allow non-drinkers like me the opportunity to drink any beverage of choice. I hope the point of the game is to enjoy "Sea Hunt" as opposed to just an excuse to get loaded. Just a thought. By the way, in the episode I watched this morning, Mike entered the water with a single tank and had doubles "down under."
