Product Description

Travel to the spectacular undersea world of seaQuest DSV as all 23 groundbreaking episodes from the epic first season surface on DVD. The amazing adventure begins in the mid-21st century, as humankind expands its undersea colonization efforts and a tenuous world peace is enforced by the United Earth Oceans (UEO). In order to protect the fledgling underwater colonies from unknown dangers and hostile invaders lurking in the depths of Earth's last frontier, the UEO recruits Captain Nathan Bridger (Roy Scheider) to command the high-tech battle submarine seaQuest and its diverse and eclectic crew. Along for the ride are a roster of stellar guest stars, including Charlton Heston, William Shatner, Seth Green, Kellie Martin and Kent McCord. Now on DVD for the first time ever, with exclusive never-before-seen footage, the Emmy Award-winning seaQuest DSV is sure to make waves with thrill-seekers everywhere!


An enormously ambitious television series from executive producer Steven Spielberg and series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon (Farscape, Alien Nation), seaQuest DSV made a valiant attempt to present a thoughtful and socially conscious science-fiction series on par with Star Trek to a '90s audience (which had already latched onto Star Trek: The Next Generation), but struggled with mediocre scripts and special effects for most of its three seasons (1993-96). The first season, however, embodies much of the ambition and scope its producers envisioned, starting with the two-hour television movie to introduces retired officer Cmdr. Nathan Bridger (a grim-faced Roy Scheider) to the crew of the underwater vessel seaQuest DSV. The pilot feature is well helmed by Scheider, and offers an agreeable mix of fiction and fact (oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard served as technical advisor for the series), as well as considerable action and excitement for an expensive network series. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the cast (which included Stephanie Beacham as the ship's fetching doctor and the late Jonathan Brandis as a teen science whiz), the show's momentum faltered under the weight of corny embellishments such as its talking dolphin, Darwin (a genetically engineered human with gills would join the fray in the show's second season) and episodes like "Knight of Shadows," which offered a hoary possession storyline, or "Photon Bullet," which hinges on underwater computer hackers. The series would alternate between intriguing stories (like the suspenseful "Games") and ill-advised ones for much of its remaining seasons, which also saw cast changes (most notably, the departure of Scheider) in an attempt to revive audiences' flagging interest. All 23 episodes of the first season are included on this four-disc set, as well as a decent selection of deleted scenes from nine episodes, including the pilot. -- Paul Gaita

    I have to admit, I was a bit frustrated when reading posted reviews. All of the reviews I read were for the show, not this release. In fact, loads of them had been posted before the DVDs were even released. I wanted to read a review someone had written having actually watched these DVDs. So, when I got the DVD as a gift, I watched all the episodes, and decided to write my own. Here goes.

    I, like the other reviewers, really enjoyed this series. It was my favorite show when it was on, and I still watch VHS copies I made of it when it was on. In fact, I probably enjoyed it more than many of the other reviewers here. Let me 'splain. I watched this show. I enjoyed it. I went to college and studied Marine Biology and Oceanography. I started keeping reef aquaria. I learned how to use computer-aided design software and designed my own undersea habitats and minisubs. I became a certified SCUBA diver. I'm a big fan of Bob Ballard. See what I mean?

    Anyway, for those of you who don't know the series, it's set in the near future when mankind has colonized the oceans. There are farms, power plants, resorts, even prisons in, on and under the oceans. And with all this expansion comes some strife. The SeaQuest was built as a deterrent for those who might seek to wreak havok in the seas. Over time, the ship has taken on scientific research responsibilities as well. Nice plot. One thing I always liked is that the characters were 'fleshed out' well. They seemed like real people. You got to know them, and that's something I really like. Something else I found about this show is that the characters always do 'the right thing'. Even when it's not popular, or could get them killed. Like not counter-attacking an aggressor sub, but instead evacuating injured people from a damaged power station.

    In the history of television there has been little intelligent Science Fiction... "seaQuest DSV" is one of those shows.

    In 1993 NBC did a show about a super-sub in the near future... starring Roy Scheider ("Jaws", "Blue Thunder"), Don Franklin, Stacy Haiduk ("Luther the Geek") and the late Jonathan Brandis. While it does have a decided ecological, liberal slant to the stories - save the whales, pollution in the oceans, underwater mining - it is exceptional SF. Probably the first modern series to explore the undersea world.

    Airing on Sunday nights, "seaQuest DSV" kicked SF into the modern age... this wasn't some SF series about aliens in the far future; it was about what could possibly happen just around the corner.

    The first season of "seaQuest" is very much worth it... the episodes may have been hit or miss, but there was an overall beauty to the scripts and the acting.

    Don't bother with seasons 2 or 3... at the end of season 1, NBC decided that since it wasn't getting the numbers it wanted, it would go with a "younger, sexier cast" (as if you could get either without Stacy Haiduk), and fired four of the cast members - the second season introduced psychics, genetically-engineered clones, aliens and space battles. The stories in the following seasons were of the Berman type (poorly written).

    The first season is definitely worth it - there was some great writing in there (co-produced by Steven Speilberg), and pretty decent acting. Good plots. Nice tension. Sure, it got a little silly at times, but for the first modern undersea series since "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", it was great.

    Get season 1, ignore the other two seasons.

    When Seaquest DSV premiered on NBC, I watched it because at the time good Sci Fi was still rare. It commanded a cast with some serious acting chops. but after the first seven episodes, you were kind of left with the impression "My god, this is trying too hard to be Star Trek."

    Then episode 8, "Knight of Shadows" aired. You hear a brief discription; The crew discovers a haunted wreck; and you think "Please, put this thing out of its misery." But watching the episode, you are blown away by the depth of the story and the preformances of Roy Scheider and Stephanie Beacham. It made you think the show finally found its own voice. From that point on, it became less and less Star Trek underwater, and more serious science fiction/fantasy of its own. Drawing you into the world of the UEO.

    But unfortunately, it also sufferd the problem Star Trek: TOS suffered. After a stellar first season, NBC wanted the show a little cheaper and to try to aim it to kids. (Maybe NBC should just give up on sci fi, because most of it they put on is crap; i.e. Manimal, or when they do get a piece of good adult drama they either bounce it around so it never gets a chance or they put it in a suicide time slot.) Steven Spielburg, the shows executive producer, gave in and started to dumb down the show. Which we can all thank god, Roddenberry didn't. it slide fast during second season to the point where when you get to the third season premire, you look in pitty at the silliness of the huge Seaquest being transported to a freshwater river by six chinook helicopters.

    You have Rockne S. O'Bannon (writer and producer of Alien Nation: the series and Farscape)is in full control of first season, and it shows. Intense, tight writing, and funny in the right spots. Season One is on my christmas gift list and it shound be on yours.
