Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea--The Buccaneer
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barry Atwater guest stars as smoothly confident genius megalomaniacal thief, "Mr. Logan" (his name is disguised), who amazingly masterminds the takeover of the Seaview with black-clothed bandits, with machine guns, that understand how to operate a submarine, forcing Admiral Nelson, Captain Crane, and their small accompaniment as hostages. Logan likes to refer to himself as "The Buccaneer" and his mad goal is to seize the Mona Lisa painting from a ship, The Lorraine, heading for France. The Seaview is the perfect ship to gain access to the famous painting since its arsenal would sink The Lorraine. So Nelson and his guys will need to come up with a plan to take back their Seaview and take down Logan and his goons. This is exciting and tense if just because Nelson and his small crew (the main principles of the first season) will have to come up with an ingenious way to communicate while separated (the trusty ventilation shaft) how they will gain back control of the ship. It will take a concerted effort to capitalize at just the right moment, knowing exactly the time to strike, using the gyro control button when attention is diverted (once the Mona Lisa is retrieved—as Nelson was forced to board The Lorraine and convince the captain to allow him to take the painting; if Nelson didn't succeed, his men would be killed and The Lorraine would be sunk with him aboard—Logan unloads it, celebrating its recovery into his hands, perfect for Nelson to take advantage). The use of a shield and gas masks is neat and how Crane (in scuba gear) is able to surprise Logan's men is also really nifty. The first season really delivered some great action and compelling stories. While the commandeering of the Seaview might be a bit implausible, it still provides a captivating hook that has Nelson and Crane holding expressions of disbelief. Logan's gloating and Nelson's internal anger (I love how he seems to be simmering underneath, trying to keep his resolve when it is visible that he'd like to smack Logan right in the chops) are a small part of what makes this episode so fun to watch develop overtime. Because Logan is so egotistical and machiavellian, when he gets his comeuppance it is gratifying. To achieve what Logan does, though, is quite impressive if a bit far-fetched.
