Batman At The Bottom Of The Sea
30 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Admiral Nelson is gone from the Seaview (Help!) and Captain Crane and Admiral Parker (Gary Merrill) must deal with a modern day Dr Frankenstein with his army of "Menfish". As I have noted in my past reviews, I struggle with Voyage when my all-mighty favourite - Richard Basehart - goes missing but this hour does the unthinkable and manages very well without Basehart!

This hour features John Dehner as the Dr Frankenstein-type and I must say his over-acting does make him seem like he has just come from Fox's Batman set. Another very noted Voyage fan was actually bothered by this style of acting in Voyage, however, since Fox's Batman is also a favourite of mine, I welcome John Dehner's amusing acting. Adding to the Batman-feeling is stock Nelson Riddle music (he scored Batman) from Voyage's Escape From Venice.

The climax of the hour is a sight and sound special effects wonder that only Irwin Allen could of done. All in all, The Menfish is a total winner and a big surprise as it survives without Basehart being present.
