This Episode: Seven Out Of Ten
4 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Lost In Space-ish looking Fossil Men are first seen and heard pounding on the Seaview and then after this in an underwater cave. They wish to use Seaview in a plan to take over the world! You heard it here folks, Fossil Men, as you can guess many fans of Voyage have issues with this hour but I find this episode wonderfully entertaining and the striking image of the Fossil Man floating outside Seaview and glaring through the glass nose at the crew would have to rank as one of the best images in screen fantasy history.

If you think the actor who plays Richards looks a lot like Lost In Space's Mark Goddard, well guess what, he was Mark Goddard's stunt double in Lost In Space! Terry Becker (Sharkey) often tells fans how he and Basehart changed the tone of a scene in this episode to make it comedy, the scene in question is funny as were the Terry Becker/Basehart scenes in Night Of Terror, but twice was enough of this kind of thing guys, if I want comedy I will go to Batman (1966). A bit of comedy in Voyage now and again is great, but not too much of it please.

I will give this episode a rating of seven out of ten, three points get taken away because of a huge casting mistake with the lead Fossil Man's waaaaaaaay too cultured voice. But how the hell does a Fossil talk I hear you ask? I can think of an Outer Limits (1963) voice artist who would of done a better job, the guy chosen for Fossil Man was all wrong for the role!
