Storyline

Whale specialist Walter Bryce has taken his family to sea in pursuit of the largest living creature ever to exist, an immense whale twice the size of the previously known largest creature to exist! He wants metabolic data, including heart rate; to get it, he harpoons the whale with a special sensor. The enraged animal destroys the Bryce boat, killing Walter's son Jimmy and crippling Walter. After recovering, Walter seeks out Nelson and Seaview to continue his research - but does he have an ulterior motive? Written by CommanderBalok

Crazy man
19 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

This Bryce guy is the leading authority on marine life? And he wants to kill it? Secondly, you know a show is in trouble when the lead actor, Nelson, agrees to a script from one of the greatest movies ever made. If the wife is so determined to stop him, why doesn't she tip off Nelson? Wife is a sign of the times. She knows her husband is wrong buts stays submissive. She even takes a shot upside the head. Scene in the show depicting the slaughter of a whale.....Libs want this scene deleted from the show. The year is 1964. Given the world situation, the navy has nothing better to do than send its most advanced sub to chase a whale? Irwin Allen, to be fair, did give us some memorable show. Lost in Space is still my favorite. In 2013, Ms. June Lockhart retains her beauty.
