  • Instead of creating a creature and having it maneuver about the Seaview, they simply have someone play two roles, the second one being the mirror of themselves

      From October 1966, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea: Day of Evil was the sixth episode of this series’ third year on the air. As always, the show starred Richard Basehart and David Hedison. Hold onto to your clocks, readers, we’re playing with time again. The first thing we see in this show is a placard that tells us

      the year is 1980. At the end of season two, it was 1978. I just have to laugh at how they went back and forth through time so much.

      Other than the humor over the calendar, below are some other highs and lows of this particular episode:

      –This is not Patterson’s year. He’s been injured at least three times thus far.

      –Oh the angst! Patterson is zapped and labeled as being as good as dead, and then Captain Crane (Hedison) plays the hero and also becomes as good as dead. Mucho angst is present in this middle part of the show. Hedison fans were sobbing. Classic TV, and all good stuff.

      –It’s a shame the writing team didn’t come up with few twists ...

      instead of reusing old ones. It’s tiring seeing devices like the duo role as happens here. Perhaps it’s a cost saving adventure. Instead of creating a creature and having it maneuver about the Seaview, they simply have someone play two roles, the second one being the mirror of themselves. That’s what happens here. In fact, just like a
      prior episode, both Nelson and Crane see their ‘doubles’. Big time repeat.

      –Nelson’s office is changed slightly. Voyage gets a ‘D’ on continuity, that’s for sure.

      The angst from the injuries was the highlight of the show, and the drama is actually good, but the turn off is the repeated plot devices. There’s nothing new in that at all, and it’s disappointing to realize it happened.
