5.0 out of 5 stars Voyage to the bottom of the sea season three 19 Sep 2011
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD issues in the UK of this classic American series finally sees the release of the third series.
It is a great bit of escapist fun and it is great that the whole four seasons of the show is finally going to be available on DVD. Here we are at season three.

The series created and produced by Irwin Allen. This was the second of the Irwin Allen produced science fiction action series after Lost in Space. Series one and two had been very successful, and like Lost in space it made it to a third season. And it dates from 1967. 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 14 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 had been more serious and generally more sensible. Later series gradually saw the story lines becoming more far fetched. This season three is no exception, as the stories become much more far-fetched and silly. However it is always good fun and has strong similarity its predecessor series two.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BUY! 17 Oct 2011
By Bob M
Format:DVD
I purchased series 2 & series 3, both in colour, and they did not disappoint. I can remember the series from the 1960's. It was always one of my all time favourite sci-fi series.The picture and sound quality is first rate. The story lines/plots in series 2 are mostly quite believable. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for series 3, with plots involving werewolves, mermaids and fossil men! I'm sure the young audiences at the time thought they were scary and enjoyable, but watching now as an adult I find them a little cringeworthy. I wonder how the actors took to the scripts? However, all this aside, it is a fantasy series after all. The emergence of the flying sub, and the crew in red/blue dungarees sets these series apart from series 1, which I've not purchased yet. But soon will though, together with series 4!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 17 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
This series was made about 45 years ago, and must have been fabulous at the time, similar but more down to Earth than Star Trek. Today the series is still very good and it is the special effects that let it down more than the drama or characterisation. If only they had slowed down the movements of the submarine when it was in trouble, it might have been more convincing.

There are some genuinely intriguing episodes that are captivating. Some are unbelieveable perhaps, but still gripping such as The Haunted Submarine. I also really liked The Creature and The Plant Man, both with quite similar monsters. It is the crew that really make this series and perhaps one in four episodes really stands out as a good one.

I think this series is for those that have some awareness of the programme, perhaps from Channel Four repeats some two decades ago. It is a product of its time, but a very good one. Watching an episode here and there is a very nice way of spending 50 minutes. Watching all the episodes back to back, like say 24, Heroes or Lost is not recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars NICE NOSTALGIA TRIP 17 Sep 2013
Format:DVD
Up periscope!

Richard Basehart starred as Admiral Nelson in this Sci-Fi classic. His futuristic submarine, the "Seaview" was a kind of USS Enterprise, not for space, but for the deep oceans.

This Season 3 box set contains all 26 episodes on 7 discs. The packaging is tastefully done and I particularly like the physical appearance of the DVDs themselves. Clearly someone has put a bit of thought into their presentation. Collectors will love them. Special features include a David Hedison ("Captain Crane") interview, 1966 audio interviews with Richard Basehart and David Hedison, Still Galleries and original US Broadcast Information.

I can remember seeing some of these very episodes when I was a boy. And I well remember the distinctive signature tune. Pure nostalgia. Aww shucks!

Richard Basehart had a very distinctive voice which added a gravitas to his role as Admiral.

He is sadly no longer with us. After a series of strokes, he died at age 70 on September 17th 1984. In his honour I have made this post on September 17th.

5.0 out of 5 stars great series 3 15 April 2013
Format:DVD
here is my review of voyage to the bottom of the sea series 3 and just like series 2 i loved it. the episodes i liked were monster from the inferno,the day the world ended (very good episode),day of evil, the terrible toys, deadly waters, deadly invasion, the lost bomb(very suspenseful) and all the other episodes i liked as well. like the ones where Seaview always lands on the bottom of the sea even though you can tell it's the same footage. Richard Basehart and David Hedison are good in this series i could watch these episodes over and over again i never get bored of watching them.

As it says on the box, just as camp and ridiculous as I remember it, but fun anyway. If you remember this fondly then buy it. If you have never heard of it, don't bother.
