Irwin's Poor Last TV Series...But The Theme Music Is Cool
31 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Irwin Allen loved the look of FIRE on film. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961) was about a fire in the sky that could destroy mankind. An ep of the Voyage/Sea TV series (The Heat Monster) had a talking fire monster that wanted to destroy the submarine Seaview. The Towering Inferno (1974) was the most obvious example of Irwin's love of flames. And exploding volcanoes appeared in soooo many Irwin shows, from The Lost World (1960) to The Swiss Family Robinson (1975) to When Time Ran Out (1980).

CODE RED is The Towering Inferno Meets Lost In Space but made without the gusto, showmanship and fun of past Irwin Allen Productions. In fact, I remember reading an article suggesting that Irwin was less involved with this show than with past shows.

This series really only features two Irwin trademarks, fires and a Will Robinson type kid - Adam Rich as Danny Blake - who orders around adults all day.

Bill Mumy in Lost In Space could get away with being a painful kid but Adam Rich is a really serious pain and you just want him AND THE SERIES ITSELF to just go away! I did go away as I remember, I watched the first few episodes because Irwin made it, then I seem to remember turning off. Unlike ALL other Irwin TV shows, Code Red never returned to Oz in the form of re-runs, and that is probably a good thing.
