Dumb de Dumb Dumb!
13 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I took high-school biology, my lab partner and I were using microscope. We were looking at protozoa, asked to draw pictures of what we saw in little circles on a piece of paper. When our teacher came around, my partner had the strangest things drawn. The odd creatures he was drawing turned out to be his eyelashes. In this really dumb episode, a group of military scientists go below 1000 fathoms in a bathysphere. One of them is killed and the others escape. When they return, they claim to have seen a city a the bottom of the ocean, but later sensors are tried and there is no such thing. The interesting thing is that these guys, instead of being hero explorers, are about to be hung out to dry by the Navy for fraud and negligence leading to death. Gene Barry is stunned. Science Fiction Theater came out during the birth of the Cold War. The paranoia that pervades almost every episode is quite interesting. People who are doing scientific work are constantly harassed and forced to prove themselves. This one doesn't pass the smell test even a little.
