4.0 out of 5 stars Good old cold war scare mongering, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - The Complete Collection [DVD] [1964] (DVD)
Being a total SCI-FI hardware fan I loved this series to death as a young boy. Just as with Jerry Andersons Thunderbirds crafts I kept drawing my own versions for years. But I do remember that even then I already found the series to be rather repetitive.
Buying the whole set after all these years bears that out. Season 1 and 2 are decent enough, Season 1 seems to be the best written, in spite of some major dated TV clichés. Seasosn 2 adds colour and the wonderful, though aerodinamicaly totally bonkers, flying sub.
Besides some very dodgy effects shots that contrast extremely to the best ones the production values are quite high. The only real letdown is the aforementioned repetitiveness that seems to slump into ever vaguer concepts towards the end (We dunno what is going on but since it threatens our free western way of living we will not take this mysterious shit anyway!”). It seems that all good writers where working on new Irwin Allen projects by that then.

As a far as the reissue itself goes there is little do complain about. Very good picture quality (somebody appearnetly stored that stuff well enough) and actually quite a few extra's for a series that is so old (which adds to the proffessional archiving theory). I know, I know, of course it is not an epifamy to see a bunch of effects shots in worse picture quality for 10 times in a row. For real buffs it is however great that the stuff still exists at all and the repetitions somehow fit into the whole picture anyway.
This complete set is recommended, especially when buying series 1 and 2 only is almost as expensive as buying the whole lot at once. Furthermore getting bored by the repetitions can be avoided by taking controlled doses. Why be hasty if you own it in such a durable format anyway?
