Product Description

Admiral Nelson and Commander Crane are back in Volume Two of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Irwin Allen's thrilling, ground-breaking science-fiction adventure series!

Join the crew of the Seaview aboard their super high-tech submarine, where no mission is too dangerous and no threat is too deadly, be it enemy agents, mad scientists, deadly sea creatures, or impending nuclear disaster. Welcome aboard the Seaview. Destination: uncharted depths and unparalleled excitement. Permission to board granted!

The first (and some say best) season of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea went into its second half with strong ratings, a loyal audience, and 16 episodes that have stood the test of time. This compact 3-disc set presents all 16 of these 50-minute, black-and-white episodes with sound and picture quality so crisp and clean that it's hard to believe 41 years had passed between their original broadcasts (Monday nights at 7:30 on ABC) and this 2006 DVD release. Like all Irwin Allen productions, the show is characterized by simple, easy-to-follow plots, impressive production values on a limited budget, and special effects (mostly by pioneering effects master L.B. Abbott) that were state-of-the-art by mid-'60s standards. As Admiral Nelson (Richard Basehart), Commander Crane (David Hedison) and the crew of the double-hulled, nuclear-powered submarine Seaview continue their first-season adventures, most of these episodes deliver plots that will be comfortably familiar to any fan of sci-fi adventure shows of the '60s: obsessive scientists conducting radical experiments, power-hungry villains from behind the Iron Curtain (typically from the unspecified "People's Republic"), and international criminals engaged in nefarious schemes of global domination. Before the series shifted to color film (in the second season) and greater emphasis on techno-gadgets and science fiction, some of these first-season episodes involve extraterrestrial beings or monsters that would become more common in subsequent seasons.

The best of these sci-fi episodes is "The Invaders" (original airdate January 25, 1965), guest-starring Robert Duvall (misspelled "Duval" in the credits) as a powerful alien awakened from suspended animation by an undersea earthquake. Other episodes feature such now-familiar guest stars as Edward Asner ("The Exile"), George Sanders ("The Traitor"), Leslie Nielsen ("The Creature"), a very young-looking Tom Skerritt (appearing briefly in the prologue of "The Enemies"), and such '60s TV stalwarts as Torin Thatcher, Skip Homeier, Alvy (Green Acres) Moore, J.D. Cannon, and Henry Silva. The most enjoyable episodes feature a deep-space robot that's been dangerously reprogrammed ("The Indestructible Man"); a giant sub-crushing jellyfish ("Mutiny"); modern-day Nazis ("The Last Battle"); humans surgically transformed into "The Amphibians"; an encounter with the Loch Ness Monster ("The Secret of the Loch"); and a cautionary tale ("The Human Computer") that may have inspired the later Star Trek episode "The Ultimate Computer." And while only a few of these episodes achieve genuine excellence, they're consistently well-written, and the father-and-son-like dynamic between Basehart and Hedison anchors the series with authentic naval authority. DVD extras include an amusing 5-minute blooper reel; a photo gallery of cover art from the highly collectible Voyage comic books published by Gold Key in the mid-'60s; and brief interview clips with David Hedison (looking great at nearly 80 years old) discussing the show's first season, his admiration for Richard Basehart, and the blooper reels that Irwin Allen compiled despite having "no sense of humor." For Voyage fans and anyone who's catching up on the best shows of the '60s, these DVDs offer loads of nostalgic entertainment. --Jeff Shannon

After watching the initial 16 black-and-white, hour length episodes in addition to the unaired colour pilot of "Eleven Days to Zero" (14/09/1964) in the VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA - SEASON ONE, VOLUME ONE 3-disc set I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were absolutely no technical problems encountered with all this considerably hefty amount of viewing pleasure crammed onto a mere 3 DVDs as I initially feared.

I'm pleased to report that the volume one collection turned out to be a truly exceptional tv premium and can be highly recommended to all devout VOYAGE fans.

The impending volume two set (scheduled for release on July 11th, 2006) is no less impressive in content with many outstanding efforts presented taken from a consistently excellent first season (1964-65) most notably being "Mutiny," "Doomsday," "The Invaders," "The Buccaneer," "The Human Computer," "The Saboteur," "The Amphibians," "The Enemies," "The Condemned" and "The Traitor."

The glittering galaxy of star-studded celebrities making brilliant guest appearances in the latter half of the first season formidably includes Robert Duvall, Donald Harron, Michael Constantine, Barry Atwater, Harold J. Stone, Warren Stevens, Edward Asner, John Anderson, Rudy Solari, Skip Homeier, Leslie Nielsen, Torin Thatcher, J.D. Cannon, Henry Silva, Michael Pate, David Sheiner, Bert Freed, John Van Dreelan, Malachi Throne, Arthur Franz, Joe De Santis and George Sanders.

Not to mention boasting the fresh, vibrantly energetic performances by the series' two dynamic leads Richard Basehart and David Hedison whose interest and enthusiasm in their respective roles delightfully shines throughout in the course of these most extraordinary 32 segments that would be produced.

After watching Volume 1 Season 1, I heartily recommend. The quality of the DVD was great. I know that some people experienced a problem with the DVD freezing, but I did not. The stories were better than I remembered. OK, yes the special effects may not be as impressive as they are today, but they were good for its time. This series was one part action, one part sci-fi, and one part spy movie. These episodes were more thought out than later years where the show became monster of the week.

The last half of the first season and the first half the second season is the peak of Voyage. This set includes the the Robert Duval episode, "The Invaders," as well as the best written of the series, "Doomsday." (It also has the stinker, Indestructable Man.) But all in all, it shows what a tight, taunt hour of TV Voyage could be, and Irwin Allen could pull off.

My favorite season. Cold War and Sci Fi context, with more focus on the Cold War than Sci Fi compared to season 2 and the later. After season 2, it seems like the creators lost their passion and creativity.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this final first season set of VTTBOTS. Never having seen much of the first season at all, the quality of this show, especially in the first two years is a real eye opener. The effects still stand up well to this day. I can see why re-runs of this show back in the 70's really grabbed me as a kid. David Hedison is a very likeable & solid co-star, Richard Basehart appears such a good actor working under some sort of anaesthetic. Great watching the who's who of guest stars - a pity about the double sided DVD's. Does it really cost that much more to produce single sided discs? Picture quality appears better than the Lost In Space Season 1 release?! Looking forward to watching my colour second season set as well as a possible future Land of the Giants DVD release.

I love Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. It was a favorite of mine when it use to come on tv, and its just as good now as it was then. I love the characters, especially, David Hedison. He is the captain. This series will hold your interest.

Among the earliest of my favorite science fiction shows. I enjoyed watching the whole series and found so many scenes that I recalled from long ago. It was also fun seeing now familiar faces who were just getting their start.
