Considered by many fans as the BEST season of the show, this DVD collection does not disappoint, the prints are good and the extras interesting, the home movies showing Irwins future wife Sheila and close associate Paul Zastupnevich out on location shooting the Helicopter scenes in the pilot were fascinating.

I was disappointed the next week trailers were missing (even Channel 4 in 1991 showed these)- this is an oversight that the producers of the DVD have made, Voyage is now over 40 years old and most afficianados are likely to be looking for this kind of thing so to missing them off telegraphs a lack of understanding of the potential audience. (Marks off for lack of detail!!)

The decision to run then in production order on the DVD was odd as well- ABC originally moved shows around and on occasions this disguised the reuse of sets and set ups- in this collection if you watch them in DVD order such things are significantly easier to trace as a result to the detriment of the viewer.

{GEEKY DATA WARNING-One such issue is the number of stars on the Admirals collar- it goes from 3 to 4 as the season progresses once it was realised by the production team that it should have been four!}

There are some very good shows in this crop; The Fear Makers (a genuine tense drama) /The Human Computer (completely claustrophobic/atmospheric) / Sky is falling ( a credible very well realised early alien memenace)/ Doomsday (just post Cuban missile crisis-man under total pressure) / The Invaders (with a young Robert Duval discussing the merits of...aloominum!) / Hot line (cold war at its absolute coldest) to name but a few.

i am so glad i bought voyage to the bottom of the sea series one on dvd and also pleased it has been released in the UK. Revelation films have done a fine job of restoring the episodes. the sound and picture quality are great. one of my friends got me into watching this series and i'm glad he did. he showed me some episdoes as he had them all on video. he showed me the pilot episode, the price of doom(brilliant), the sky is falling (another good episode)Submarine Sunk Here and The Traitor and i really liked them all and he warned me before he put them on that the episodes were in black and white and i said fine. now that i have watched all the episodes on the boxset i do like Doomsday,The Human Computer and the saboteur and Hot Line. so Revelation films roll on series 2 in June

At last we finally get the DVD release in the UK of this iconic series created and produced by Irwin Allen. This was the first of the Irwin Allen produced science fiction action series and it dates from 1964. After the success of the 1961 film of the same name, (also created and produced by Irwin Allen) this series made in black and white, brought a big budget film feel to a TV series.
This series is great fun. It`s full of escapist novelty. You cannot take it too seriously, its just meant to be fun.
Some film footage from the movie and even the model of the submarine were used in this TV version that had a slightly different cast. This first series gets off to a good start with some interesting plots, good scripts and good acting.
The production style gave an originality to the small screen and it was well received both in America and the UK. Here in the UK the first series was screened in its original year of release on TV unlike later series.
However every episode from the first series to the last series of Voyage to the bottom of the sea was screened on ITV during a slot around 4.40pm on Thursday afternoons during the early 1970s. Voyage to the bottom of the sea was later repeated on channel four on Sunday mornings during the 1990s.

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.

I remember the very first episode when I was 12 years old and I have loved this series ever since. I enjoy all the elements-the characters, acting, setting, story lines and the fantastic music! Of course it is dated but it did have some futuristic themes and is now a classic. This first series in black and white reflects the talents of Irwin Allen who was a magnificent director and producer.it takes me back to an age when Saturday night TV was a very big deal. David Hedison was my idol and still is! Its a a pity I was 12 and he was 36 at the time and our paths never crossed! I can even remember the TV announcer David Hamilton building up the anticipation as broadcast time approached. I wouldn't advise watching too many episodes at once. Pace yourself and you will be transported back to the sixties when American TV was king!
