Nine months ago a diving bell was lost with four men aboard during an Antarctic expedition. One man, Jason Kemp, is found alive. He is suffering from amnesia and can't remember anything after the dive. Nelson thinks he may be suffering from shock as he rambles on about a tropical land filled with monsters. Kemp and Carol Denning, an underwater photographer and the daughter of one of the missing men, joins the Seaview and returns to the place where the bell was lost. Their bell suffers the same fate and Nelson, Crane, Kemp and Carol Denning somehow find themselves washed up on a tropical beach in the frozen Antarctic. Written by tomtrekp

Lifted most of the episode from 1960's "The Lost World"
17 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Funny, but when I recently watched this episode on DVD, I couldn't help but notice that Irwin Allen basically just used footage from his 1960 movie, "The Lost World." It, conveniently, starred David Hedison, and they brought back "native girl" Vitina Marcus to reprise her role. Most of the episode is simply clips from the movie, with some closeups to fill in the new plot. You can clearly see, in some of the shots, actors from the movie, such as Jill St. John, and others. The dinosaur fight is still interesting to watch, as are the interspersed shots of Hedison going from movie to TV show episode. I think the only thing Irwin Allen had to worry about in this show was continuity. Just use similar costumes and props and hope no one notices. Pretty funny.
