Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - Season 2, Vol. 2

Overview

The film-to-video transfer on the episodes of this volume of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is uniformly sharp and crisp, and one of the highlights of the series release so far.

Overview

The film-to-video transfer on the episodes of this volume of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is uniformly sharp and crisp, and one of the highlights of the series release so far. Many of these shows made ample use of vintage stock footage, but the detail on the full-screen 1.33:1 is consistent throughout, even where visual material a decade older than the series is present. As with the earlier volumes and all of the classic Fox television series on DVD, each episode gets a dozen well-placed chapter markers and there are no bonus features for the individual shows, although the transfers are beautiful enough that the visuals alone will be a treat, and that goes double for those who only ever saw the series on the quality of color television broadcasts and monitors that were available in 1966. There are big-budget feature films from this same period that don't look as good on DVD as these shows do. The second season was the last great one in the four-year run of the series, which deteriorated in seasons three and four with repetitive and ever more juvenile plots and an over-reliance on familiar stock footag. There are five great episodes here: "The Death Ship, "The Sky's on Fire" a reworking of the plot from the original 1961 Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea feature film, "Killers of the Deep, "The Phantom Strikes, and "The Return of the Phantom, the latter two a pair of creepy ghost stories involving a dead German submariner Alfred Ryder, in one of the best roles of his career. Most of the rest feature either interesting supporting actors or intriguing plot and production twists, although there were already signs of an excessive repeat of storylines, in one instance from the very same season at hand. The only special feature is a series of interview clips with series co-star David Hedison on the second side of the third disc, in which he reminisces about producer Irwin Allen and aspects of his work on the series, and also his participation in the 1960 Allen-produced feature The Lost World. All of this material which can be accessed in sequence or through a "play all" function, and the individual shows are accessible through an easy-to-use two-layer menu.
