Season finale #2, and yet again...the Seaquest is destroyed! Not surprisingly, this one's overblown, simplistic, and "lite" (like way too much of Spielberg's work post-CLOSE ENCOUNTERS). But if you're going to go for broke, this is the way. The sub is kidnapped by a UFO and taken to a water planet, where they are forced to take sides in a war. Kent McCord and Mark Hamill are back. The action is big, the sub is destroyed, and everyone killed except for Lucas and Dagwood in a lifeboat (plus Darwin). It took a hearty constitution to get through two whole seasons of this show...but, having come this far, i admit to a perverse curiosity to know what happened in the aborted season 3, with Captain Michael Ironside (STARSHIP TROOPERS, THE NEXT KARATE KID). Farewell, Mr. Scheider. You did well, as always. That said, being eaten by a shark would have been the more poetic way to go out.
