Editorial Reviews

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was the brainchild of Writer/Producer/Director Irwin Allen... the "Master of Disaster."It ran on ABC 1964-1968 and was for its four years of some of the best and most exciting science fiction on TV at the time. The classic adventures aboard the "SSRN Seaview" will captivate you today, as much as they did in the 60s.

This was my favorite TV series in the 1960s. While sometimes derided by serious Sci-Fi fans, Voyage was very successful in its day, and actually lasted a season longer than Star Trek. The casting of Richard Basehart was a real coup, and David Hedison, who turned down the Captain Crane role in the VTTBOTS movie, came aboard in the TV show. Featuring special effects that still hold up today, VTTBOTS originally started out as serious sci-fi, whose first season episodes still stand tall with the best of TV sci-fi. The second season brought color episodes, a re-designed Seaview, and a new invention, the Flying Sub, to help expand the action. As often happened with Irwin Allen's shows, writing became spotty as time went on. Solid sci-fi stories were often sandwiched between "monster of the week" shows. Even the cast was surprised when the show was picked up for a fourth season. From what I've read, Basehart was anxious to get out of the grind of a TV series, and frankly back into what he considered serious acting. So one will notice an episode or two where he's absent, or obviously being doubled (the episode with the giant sea spider and the hyper fast submarine was one where he was doubled, and he literally duped his lines). There's also another episode where Basehart's son John had a guest part (playing a crewman named "Johnson". Get it? John? Basehart's son?).

I had the pleasure of meeting David Hedison at a convention a few years back. He recounted many fine stories about Voyage, including his relationship with Basehart, working with Irwin Allen, and his years as Captain of the Seaview.

I have waited a long time for this to come out on DVD. I am glad to see it is finally going to hit the DVD shelves!

A number of previous reviewers have reported skipping and freezing problems with this set of DVDs, some reporting mailing back their DVDs repeatedly in the hope of obtaining a set which wasn't defective. A previous reviewer recommended that potential buyers contact Fox home entertainment and plead with them to fix the DVDs to correct this problem, so I did. Their phone number is 1 877 369-7867, by the way. So much for pleading; after some discussion, I finally convinced the telephone attendant to inquire about problems with these DVDs. After less than a minute on hold, she came back on and reported that they have no record of any problems existing with these disks and no record of any returns. All that she could assure me of is that if I purchased a defective set, I could return them. Conclusion: Not only does the skipping problem remain unaddressed but no one is even paying attention. Sometimes the only power that the consumer has is to NOT purchase a shoddy product. I'll wait a few years - maybe they'll get it right on whatever format will follow DVD. You can always try calling them also. If the response I got is any indication, you're probably wasting your time, however.

Most of my experience with Voyage consists of the color episodes shown in syndication. As I child, I dug the whole "monster of the week" thing, BUT, as an adult watching the same color episodes on the SciFi channel, I couldn't get over how cheesy they were.

That said, I ordered Season 1, Vol 1 of Voyage after reading reviews of the stellar B/W eps. Nice to see that this first half of the inaugural season lives up to the hype.

There is something about B/W that adds to the suspense of tv shows or movies. Voyage (as well as season 1 of Lost in Space)makes excellent use of the lack of color, resulting in taut and suspenseful installments. I especially enjoyed "The Fear Makers," "The Ghost of Moby Dick," and "Submarine Sunk Here."

Great video and audio transfers. The extras are nice too. Highly Recommended.

Looking forward to Vol. 2.

OK, 20th is now 2 for 3.

They botched the Lost In Space DVD set but did a super job mastering and transferring the recent "The Time Tunnel" Volume 1 DVDs and have done an equally good job on Voyage.

The mastering and transfer is crisp, clear, and beautiful. They obviously used either the original negatives or newly struck 35mm prints to master this set.
As noted by another reviewer, the sound track has some hiss in it, but nothing signficant.

The only gripe is that they tampered with the "unaired" color pilot by substituting the early season 2 color introduction in place of the original pilot intro, which is very different from the intros the series show aired with. They also tampered with the closing credits of the original which credited Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink of "Hogans Heros") as "Dr. Gamma". The credits on this version list Theodore Marcuse which is the way they aired during the series run. Otherwise, the pilot appears to be primarily intact.

The shows are very much as I remember them with good story lines and tight drama. A true blast from the past.

I can recommend this set if you're a fan of this series. Now, let's hope that the quality mastering and transfer work continues with the remainder of the releases of the series!

[edit]

I've watch all three discs and didn't encountered any problems with skipping, locking, jumping or picture problems on this set.
But the double sided format is likely the cause of the problems people are having.
