Trivia

At the beginning Mr. Omir is shown using his newly discovered element 116, which he dubbed "Subterranium" (presumably because he discovered it while drilling on the ocean floor). At the time of this show there were only 104 known elements. Element 116 would be eventually discovered 35 years later and, after another 10 years of debate, officially named "Livermorium".

Sci-Fi & Disaster
30 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I love the teaser (the start) of this hour when things go bang and James Darren reveals his mechanical side to viewers. When they call Irwin Allen a showman they mean he was able to film scenes like this and make them look and sound so good! Also, even more pleasing is the James Darren created fireworks show in the Seaview control room. I would call this episode a two scene wonder but just about everybody else loves every minute of it so don't pay too much attention to me.

I am fully aware that James Darren is loved by many, and after watching a 1999 episode of Melrose Place I have discovered that this actor has improved with age, but I never really liked him as a young man both here and in The Time Tunnel. He did the above two scenes well but it was the action, not him, that made these two bits so good.
