An Okay Journey With A Hollywood Legend
21 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

The theme music gets 10 out of 10. The pilot is well done. Note the music when the boat is sucked into the mysterious sea cloud. Note the photography in this opening scene. If only this level of film-like production remained for the whole ten episodes. But it did not.

What was it about the 1970s? So many sci-fic television shows wanted to get off the ground but so many bombed! Fantastic Journey is now just an okay show to watch if you wish to see a Hollywood legend - Roddy McDowall - totally upstage the actors around him.

I mean, look at the start of the episode - Funhouse - it is McDowall's bothered reactions to the amusement-park-in-nowhere that hold the viewer. You are hardly aware that the other cast members are present. Go on this journey for McDowall's acting and the odd touch of 1960s Irwin Allen...but don't expect too much.
