Disaster Hour Starring The Spindrift
17 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Spaceship Spindrift is trapped in quicksand with a giant criminal holding onto the ship.

Let me start by saying that I have viewed this episode a few times over the decades and am always pleased with the fact that the hour shows off spaceship Spindrift more so than any other episode of the series, after the pilot.

This really does feel like a 1970s disaster movie, maybe a pre-Airport 1977...you remember when the passenger plane crashed to the bottom of the sea with the passengers still alive at the bottom.

Then came the rescue attempt.

Manhunt is a fine hour.
