Goofs

When Rick and Jenna return to their boat with the underwater samples it seems they are attacked the boat is spun around. In the long shot we can see the prop wash from the engines making it obvious that the boat is simply in reverse and running under it's own power. Further we see a shot of the back of the boat and disturbed water around drive units indicate the engines are running. In the next shot they are not. See more »

Commander Ford With A Giant Crocodile
19 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is a very pleasing episode of seaQuest DSV that is partly damaged by revolting CGI of the giant crocodile in the later stages of the hour. It begins so well, like several Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964-68) episodes in fact, with a mysterious creature attacking folks just before the theme tune plays.

The very human storyline of Commander Ford dealing with family issues is well played and very well acted by all concerned. The location filming on a beach is impressive. Then finally, we go underwater with Ford in the mini-sub (or whatever they call it?) and his thrilling first encounter with the giant croc! Great suspense here as I was really concerned as to how Ford would get out of danger.

Meltdown has a great ending and, unlike several year two shows, it is not filled with seamen making unfunny jokes. If you can turn a blind eye to the poor CGI on the island you might just get a blast from Meltdown!
