It is still great storytelling, With all the crap out on TV that is running now,this simple throwback to the monster of week was nice change from CSIs, Law and Orders, Reality shows, News magazines and game shows. The cast of the Seaview battling the bug eyed monsters and weird creatures may seem farfetched escapest entertainment by today's standards, but the quality is there.
And maybe that what we need today. At least I think so

I checked around the rest of the DVD for quality control and found the other episodes to be of similar quality to Terror on Dinosaur Island. The job Fox did on the DVDs is amazing! (Thank you Fox!!)
As a reviewer my job is to tell you about the quality of the image and sound; however I am compelled to tell you that the episodes on this volume are some of the finest of the series. In particular you'll enjoy:
Terror on Dinosaur Island
Deadly Creature Below (this is the View-Master episode by the way)
The Phantom Strikes
The Sky's On Fire
The Return of the Phantom
Keep up the good work Fox. This is your best work yet! Bring on Season Three!
"Terror on Dinosaur Island," replete with footage taken from creator Irwin Allen's feature film "The Lost World," benefits from guest star Paul Carr's performance as a crewman obsessed with seeking revenge against Captain Crane who Carr feels is responsible for the death of a fellow sailor. Michael Ansara and John Wayne's son Patrick are both featured in the tense cat-and-mouse episode "Killers of the Deep" while perennial heavy Nehemiah Persoff gets to chew the scenery as an escaped convict in "Deadly Creature Below!" Robert Loggia plays a scientist determined to retrieve a submerged youth serum at all costs in "Graveyard of Fear" and Albert Salmi, who would appear in Allen's "Lost in Space" the same year in a similar role, dons a pirate's garb in the enjoyable "Dead Man's Doubloons."
"Voyage" borrows from Agatha Christie in the "Ten Little Indians"-like "The Death Ship." Interesting camerawork and impressive special effects are the highlights of "The Monster's Web" and "The Menfish."
"The Mechanical Man" features James Darren as an evil android intent on world domination. Darren would later star in Allen's short-lived series "The Time Tunnel." This particular episode is one of the few with a "special guest star" in the form of veteran Arthur O'Connell. There is also an eye-popping view of the Seaview as it is hooked to an underwater laboratory.
The major highlights of the disc are "The Phantom Strikes" and its sequel "The Phantom Strikes Again." Both episodes allow stars Richard Basehart and David Hedison the opportunity to stretch their acting mettle. Alfred Ryder is outstanding as a malevolent spirit determined to possess Captain Crane's body. Even featured player Del Monroe ("Kowalski") has a "moment" in "The Phantom Strikes."
As in the other compilations, the special features are at a minimum but the superb sound and color make up for the weaknesses in the "extras" department.
