Shameless!
4 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anybody over the age of fifty will remember just how shamelessly they ripped this episode from Allen's ORIGINAL movie plot. This was at a point in the series where they just simply ran out of ideas (assassins, saboteurs, time manipulators, underwater monsters...werewolves/man-beasts and, of course, aliens!) and this episode put a cork in the show. But since this is part of the series, then Allen must have given it a nod. Of course, he WAS pretty busy with THE TIME TUNNEL, LOST IN SPACE and LAND OF THE GIANTS. The network saw how the 'VOYAGE...' was becoming a 'SHIPWRECK' and felt that it was time to pull the plug. If you've never seen the original movie, look for it on DVD along with FANTASTIC VOYAGE (on the flip-side). Both original VOYAGES are well worth the money for entertainment value.
