Storyline

Voyage chronicled the adventures of the world's first privately owned nuclear submarine, the SSRN Seaview. Designed by Admiral Harriman Nelson, she was a tool of oceanographic research for the Nelson Institute of Marine Research. Though the show is known for its "monster" episodes, many plots were veiled commentaries of what was happening in the news. Such plotlines as nuclear doomsday, pollution of natural resources, foreign threat, and theft of American technology are all still relevant today. Written by Linda Adams <Garridon@aol.com>

Great 60's series
15 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is one of the great series of 60's television. The special effects look are to laugh at, but that is what makes it great. The plot in each episode was the same: The Seaview being attacked by giant monsters from beneath the sea, and Adm. Nelson and Captain Lee saving the world from destruction. I would be cool if someone makes a new movie out of this TV series, because it's worth it. Action and adventure like only 60's TV could do it!
