Oh, what a difference a year makes. The crew of the classic 1972 series Sealab 2020 has been replaced with a gang of misfits unfit for public service. Their mission: to investigate underwater colonization. They are doing a very bad job.]]>

Also, the packaging for this season is really neat, and seems to be a lot more solid and durable than the other ones.
But, you know, after being forced to watch several episodes of Seasons 3 and 4, I have come to realize that the show was still really, really funny; and even when they were "jumping the shark," they still went out as only Sealab could.
Let's face it. Old people like me only have Aqua Teens left, now. :/
There are then 2 episodes without Capt Murphy (Harry Goz died) and Marco (Estrada's apearances on the show became less frequent for some reason) which are decent; these 2, Frozen Dinner and Splitsville, are both funny but clearly suffer from not having Capt Murphy or Marco.
The rest of the episodes feature Tornado Shanks as the new captain (voiced by Goz's son). ASHDTV and Chalkboard Jungle are both funny but again are just not as good as episodes from earlier in the series; they are showing signs of the new "direction" the show takes in later episodes.
This new "direction" is clear in the rest of the episodes on the DVD. They are just plain stupid. Rather than having humerous situations and dialog like the show used to have, they resort to totally random stuff in an attempt to be funny. The "jokes" are more blunt and they really kill them.
I know some people like these types of jokes and find the new episodes funny, but I don't. To me, the new Sealab episodes have the same problems as the new Family Guy episodes they've started showing again on Fox and the newer Simpsons episodes (like season 11 on). Hard to explain - you either know what I'm talking about because you feel the same way about these shows or you don't.
Is this the last great season? Who knows- I'm just some schmuck reviewer on Amazon. But don't be confused by the childish drama- these are fun and goofy as before. As much as I liked the early shows, this is not some character driven drama, it is a crazy cartoon.

This show is very hit or miss, in general, but with Harry Goz no longer voicing Murphy, it's just lost its charm. Read morePublished on May 29, 2013 by ICEBLAST21
