5.0 out of 5 stars Voyage to the bottom of the sea series two 22 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At last we finally get the DVD release in the UK of this iconic second series created and produced by Irwin Allen. This was the second of the Irwin Allen produced science fiction action series and it dates from 1965. After the success of the 1961 film of the same name, (also created and produced by Irwin Allen), and the success of the first series to TV made in Black and white, this second series is now in glorious colour. This series, like all the Irwin Allen productions, brought a big budget film feel to a TV series.
This series is great fun. It is full of escapist novelty. You cannot take it too seriously, it is just meant to be fun.

The seaview is the worlds most advanced nuclear submarine, created by its commander, retired Admiral Haarriman Nelson, and housed in a pen at his Nelson Institute of Marine Research, Santa Barbara, California. It is six hundred feet long. It can dive to and travel faster than any of its rivals and is equipped with all the latest devices including atomic torpedoes. It carries a separate mini sub, a diving bell, a snowcat, and an innovative flying fish, a vessel capable of water and air travel.
The series is set 13 years into the future. Nelson and his crew are meant to be doing research but usually end up maintaining peace below the waves by fighting fiendish humans, fish and aliens. This first series tends to be more serious and generally more sensible. Later series see the story lines becoming more far fetched. The addition of colour film gives the show an extra dimension and it truly is full of colour. I feel that it also showed up the limitations of the special effects of the time. For example sea monsters are less than convincing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voyage Season 2- Colourful fun... 4 July 2011
Excellent to see the show on DVD, still think it was a bizarre decision to run them in production order on the dvd but what the merely shows up a chronology of set useage (i.e. things created for show X appear again in Show Y straight after it) and it is obvious to see why ABC did mix them up initially.

There are minor sound issues on two episodes, "Sky's on Fire" is distorted and "The Mechanincal Man" is a fraction out of synch (and I MEAN a fraction- only those with mega thick glasses and yet to kiss a girl/boy would be overly upset by it) but the overall production and presentation is first class.

Some of Voyage's best shows are in here, the two "Phantom" shows with the superb Alfred Ryder are enjoyable and the totally crackers "Dead Mens Doubloons" is pure glorious pantomime..and I loved it! The best guest performance though goes to Kevin Hagen in "Shape of Doom" -mad as a box of frogs and convincingly so.

The extras are ok but look bolted on, the effects footage is fascinating, clearly LB Abbott is seen experimenting with the best lighting in the underwater seaview shots with the added issue of colour to contend with now. The early shots look like a goldfish tank it is good to see just how far they came so rapidly and ending up with Emmy winning effects that hold up perfectly today in terms of composition and delivery.

Season 3 is next up from Revelation in Sept...we need better extras on there please and the next week teasers...hmmm not a chance methinks- shame opportunity missed!

Go buy it, the colour is deep and vibrant and many music cues outstanding.

Fun for all- very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasures of the deep 26 Jun 2011
Season 2 of 'Voyage' is the best of the lot in my humble view. It was the first to be made in colour, and features the Flying Sub - F.S.-1 - in action for the first time. The shot of it emerging from the sea is one of the most vivid television memories from my childhood! With Henry Kulky having sadly passed away, a new C.P.O. was needed - enter Terry Becker as 'Francis Ethelbert Sharkey' - and he went on to become one of the most popular supporting characters.

The James Bond movie 'Thunderball' was imminent, hence 'Voyage' pre-empted it with a series of aquatic spy stories - 'Time Bomb' has Nelson turned into a living bomb, 'The X Factor' ( no relation! ) casts John McGiver as a toy manufacturer who is turning kidnapped scientists into life-size dolls, and 'The Silent Saboteurs' involves a threat to U.S. space capsules. These were very entertaining and stylish, but midway through the run, they were dropped as the show chose to focus on sci-fi. Typical of the bunch was 'The Monster From Outer Space' in which Seaview was invaded by...well, I'm sure you can guess. Victor Buono hams it up splendidly in 'The Cyborg' as a mad scientist who replaces Nelson with a robot double, 'Leviathan' has our heroes menaced by a horrifically ugly giant ( which freaked me out when I first saw it ) and 'Terror On Dinosaur Island' provides a neat excuse to run yet more 'Lost World' footage. We also get David Hedison's favourite episode 'The Phantom Strikes!' which has Alfred Ryder as a U-Boat Captain returning from the dead. It went down so well there was a sequel later that season.

For me the best episode has to be 'The Mechanical Man', guest starring James Darren of 'Time Tunnel' fame.

This is maybe the best out of the four series. In colour, it also introduces the flying mini sub; which opens
up more plot lines. Read more
