3.0 out of 5 stars Can you go home again? Oct. 7 2010
I recall enjoying this series when I was a kid in the 1960s, and so I was curious to revisit the show.

It was a mixed experience. On the positive side many of the better f/x still hold up such as the many beautiful shots of the submarine Seaview---there's a great deal still to be said about good model work without contemporary cgi f/x. Another plus is that the actors play it totally straight and we get some nice performances from guest stars such as June Allison, James Doohan (twice), Michael Ansara and Carroll O'Connor. Some of the episodes hold up rather well and could even be done today with only minor tweaking. On a disappointing note was some of the writing which I found stiff and awkward at times even with the cast doing their best with it. The pacing on many of the stories can be slow (by today's standards). And the plots can be thin which doesn't help the pacing either.

Another disappointment (from my perspective) was that many of the episodes revolve around international intrigue and the Cold War of the era which, while potentially interesting, doesn't gel with the science fiction premise of voyaging to the bottom of the sea in a high tech submarine.

Of the first sixteen episodes I liked about seven of them and three of the episodes I thought hold up rather well even after all these years. I thought the best were "The Price Of Doom," "The Sky Is falling" and "Hot Line." Other noteworthy episodes were "Submarine Sunk Here," "No Way Out," "The Ghost Of Moby Dick" and "Hail To The Chief."

Even with some disappointment though I was entertained enough to try revisiting further adventures of the Seaview in later volumes of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bon Voyage Seaview! Nov. 21 2005
By H. N. Dohe - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY CAN'T THEY RELEASE THE WHOLE SEASON ON DVD?????? Feb. 8 2006
By Philly - Published on Amazon.com
Is it all companies or just Irwin Allen TV shows???? This seems to be the newest plot in rapidly separating the consumers from their money. Manufacturers take years releasing the public's favorite shows on DVD and, when they do, they only release half seasons. They're releasing only 15 of the 32 episodes of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea's First Season. I'm sure Vol.2 will be out in 3 to 6 months, but it will probably mean 8 box sets to cover the entire 4 season run of this show. They released Lost in Space in 5 box sets for the 3 seasons it was on and they're even splitting up the Time Tunnel episodes in 2 sets and it was only on for one season! You know we're waiting for these shows and, as a result, you bleed as much money out of us as you can. GIVE THE PUBLIC A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Skipping problem remains unaddressed June 9 2006
By Dance Day and Night - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent First Season... So Far May 19 2006
By The Breech - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sinking This Submarine Jan. 11 2006
By Lenard Marcus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season One, although not in color, was probably the best. The story lines stayed away from the later underwater monsters that always seemed to attack the Seaview. This show was always overshadowed by Star Trek, even though the special effects were far superior-just watch the original movie to compare. Probably the BEST sci fi show on television at that time (aside from Star Trek). So finally, Admiral Nelson and Captain Crane live again-now I can't wait for Season Two!
