Back in the good old days of Automan, The Greatest American Hero and Manimal, I remember watching another (probably) tv-series featuring a sort of Aquaman. I think I watched just a few episodes of this series, maybe only the pilot, so I just remember this man with webbed hands and feet, trapped in some sort of lab, saying he was cold (or warm?) because he was mutating.

Can someone help me in identifying this series and, maybe most important, tell me if it's worth watching today?

If you can stretch '80s to include 1977-78 this sounds like Man From Atlantis, starring Patrick Duffy of Dallas fame.

It was a very short run series after some TV movies about the character.

As for your last question - I suspect not.

do you have any additional resources to prove this is the series the OP is asking for? – TylerShads Jan 25 '13 at 20:51
