1.0 out of 5 stars big let down Jan. 5 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
don't get me wrong, i am a big fan of Seaquest.I remember being glued to the tv every sunday just to watch every episode,especially the 1st season.But unfortunately universal pictures doesn't have the same feelings about the show.Whoever was in charge of putting this dvd set together did not really care about it.first of all when i got it home from the store, i noticed the menu's were just picture menus ,no fancy animated interactive menus like my lois and clark series, or star trek episodes. also this Dvd is a direct transfer, which means
these dvds are not enhanced for high definition tv's, the colours look washed out and the video quality looks grainy.no one took the time to computer correct these. To save money they also made these dvd's double sided, so don't expect any labels on the discs.
The bonus features are a joke.they added 30 minutes of deleted footage but, but it is just thrown in,no directors comments:no reason why they were deleted.there are no special featurettes, like cast interviews or special docmentaries on how they made the
series.I paid more in price for my deep space nine episodes, but i got allot more value,paramount just spoiled me with thier special packaging,digital surround surround track(seaquest is only 2 channel stereo), and bonus features which consisted of 2 dvds alone.Trust me these are dvds you do not want to use to show off your fancy home theatre system.They will sell alot of these dvds beacuse there are so many fans of the show.but i can't feelng they could have done better,and the fans of seaquest deserved much more

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic, yet forgotten, sci-fi show Jan. 26 2010
Format:DVD
I started watching this show and remembered why I loved the first season. Phenomenal acting (Roy Scheider), and special effects that are still pretty good for a television series. I do wish there were bonus features, but with most older series you don't get commentaries or cast interviews (especially since several cast members are no longer with us, unfortunately). And I don't like the double side discs. But those are small issues, as the show itself is fantastic. They should remake the series and show the crappy new sci-fi series how it is done. If you want good sci-fi, good acting, good special effects, and a talking dolphin, this is the show to get.

Pros: Excellent writing, acting, special effects, Roy Scheider, and a talking dolphin
Cons: Double-sided discs and a bare bones DVD release.

If there were more bonus features, I would have given the release a 5 out of 5. I'm not going to deduct 4 stars just because Stacy Haiduk isn't doing an audio commentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warning, In-Depth Review Jan. 3 2006
By chemikalguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

As far as this DVD set goes, there are four of disks that contain a total of 23 episodes. I'd have to say that these first season episodes are excellent, although after getting the box set, I started trying to find a couple of my favorite episodes, only to find that they were from the second season. I guess I'll have to wait to watch them again.

The reason that I didn't give this set 5 stars is that the bonus features are very sparse. There are really only a few deleted scenes from about a third of the episodes, which don't really add anything to them. I had hoped for something cool, like crew bios, schematic layouts of the ship, something. Anything! I was told by a studio insider that originally, this set was slated for release sometime in 2006, but that they were pushed to try and make the 2005 holiday season. I guess they decided to leave out any additional bonus features in order to try their best to make it. They ended up missing it by one day, releasing on Dec. 26.

Another reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it seemed a bit, well, cheap. The disks are double-sided, and have two or three episodes per side. I'm a big fan of pictures and stuff being printed on the top of my DVDs. You know, pictures of the ship, the crew, the dolphin named Darwin, anything. I just think it's the details that make it seem 'classy'. Call me weird. I accept that.

The DVD transfer is as good as can be expected from a show that aired in 1993. The video quality is far better than those bootlegs that have been available on auction sites for several years. It's much better than the VHS recordings I've been holding onto for the last twelve years. The audio is also quite good. It's even in Dolby Digital 2.0, which was a pleasant surprise. I would have loved if they'd reworked it and done it in 5.1, but hey, you can't have everything.

One other thing that I wished they would have done was a dedication to the memory of Jonathan Brandis who played the character of Lucas, the ship's teenage genius. I could have overlooked everything else and given 5 stars had they done that. That, to me, would have shown a great deal of compassion and class.

This is a great show, and a very good addition to anyone's DVD library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darwin love Bridger! Oct. 18 2005
By Kathleen J. Bracken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Come on. The show had a talking dolphin with his own scuba gear. It should have been released onto DVD much sooner than this!

I, for one, am overjoyed that I will soon be able to enjoy the wonders of Darwin, Bridger, and the late Jonathan Brandis in the comfort of my living room. If entire seasons of The Bachelor are out already on DVD, Seaquest was way overdue. I'm glad this oversight has finally been remedied.

UEO forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek - Under Water? Dec 28 2005
By David Masters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars like Trek, season one is the best Dec 22 2005
By Steven G. Hevland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this show! Sept. 3 2006
By Violet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In regard to the first season, the plot was intelligent, entertaining and besides the x-files... it was also the only good thing on tv. The show still has a cult following, with all-day marathons occasionally showing up on tv.

One of highlights of this series, is the heart-warming interaction between the fatherly Nathen Bridger & Lucas Wolenczak, who's parents have sent him away to board the Seaquest DSV (Deep Submergence Vehicle). There is also the strong and unusual friendship between Lucas Wolenczak and Darwin the talking dolphin.

The following seasons were dumbed down somewhat and less unique, appearing to have barrowed their plots from from myths, urban legends and even paranormal phenomena.

From the beginning, the series had already been futuristic, taking place around 2012 but the final season took the SeaQuest into outer space where the crew dissapeared until 2032. In a show that emphisized the ocean as the "final frontier", the leap into space created an entirely new television series with none of the original charm.

I highly recomend the first series to anyone of any age. I'd recommend the following seasons to die-hard SeaQuest fans and if you're crazy for anything starring the former Jedi Mark Hammill, maybe you'll enjoy 2032. Mark Hammill had a re-occurring role in the final season.
