Storyline

Captain Frances Kelly (Driver) leads a research team below the Arctic ice aboard the cutting-edge submarine Orpheus in a quest to solve the world's burgeoning energy crisis and establish the fate of a doomed previous expedition, and expedition that took the wife of Kelly's chief engineer (Nesbitt). Enduring crushing pressure, violent volcanic gas eruptions, freezing temperatures and total darkness, the Orpheus arrives at the Lomonosov Ridge, an area of seabed within disputed territory under United Nations' administration and monitoring. Nobody ever goes there but there is something else in the freezing depths: something huge, a behemoth of epic proportions, menace and unknown purpose. As the Orpheus crew struggle for survival and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the deep, they uncover secrets more terrifying than they ever could have imagined. Written by Anonymous

The Deep 2010 How Bad Can a TV Serial Be ?
2 September 2010 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

If I said this was really tripe I might insult tripe. I wanted to like it, I really did.

The synopsis looked good; The crew of a research submarine, who encounter disaster thousands of feet underwater in the Arctic Circle.

I never saw a trailer for it (not sure if they made one perhaps not enough film to make a good reel). Let's start out with the good and buzz when you see where this is going.

a) The cast list was amazing...(false hope) buzzzzz ! b) The film work, sets etc. wonderful, nice lighting. c) Good sound. d) The storyline ideas were acceptable, no cheesy graphics. e) Nice personality, pretty eyes, you get the idea.

Unfortunately when it came to the story, and thus the directing what a load of tripe (sorry tripe). If perfect casting can be touched on for a moment Goran Visnjic from ER fame is perfectly cast but unfortunately no medical training (real or imaginary) on this planet could rescue this story from the terminal poor writing/directing. Now in this sort of situation you could often blame actors normally, but I believe they did all they could and saved the show if possible.

I think when you define bad story lines, and detail, I think it is when stupid things happen for no reason that really offer no value, or worse take away from the story line, that the worst damages are here. But that is almost every scene, where you think this is really bad.

This story good be easily tweaked to be seriously good or as a spoof and seriously funny. Unfortunately it was just seriously bad.

I never watched a multi part TV serial before thinking well the next episode (this was a 5 parter) has to be better than that last one. Unfortunately it too plunged deeper.

All that can be hoped for is that the actors do not sue for having their careers lost at sea, I will remember them for quite a while for this stinker (unfortunately).

It is worth watching for how bad it is (but I hear people have been known to wear shoes on the wrong feet for the same reason.

Rating 1 out of 10 (awful)
