The third season of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA saw the plots grow more fantastic as they face off against monsters, aliens, telepathic humans, impending nuclear doom, and others. The Cold War plots of the first two seasons seem to a backseat. Episodes like THE DEATH WATCH seem like budget saver episodes where the writing have to be better than usual. The show did have budget cuts for season 3. It is still an enjoyable series even though I can still make fun of the faults in the episodes and the recycling of plot lines (Crane and Nelson trying trying to kill each other again for example).

SPECIAL FEATURES: On side B of disc 3 are still galleries for episodic photos, publicity stills, and one issue of the comic book. Also included are three more David Hedison interview segments (the fans, the rock and roll) and an old audio interview with David. I just wish they could record some audio commentaries for the episodes.

FINAL ANALYSIS: The sets are still great and the series still has some steam to this point. I do wish 20th Century Fox would release the rest of the series on daul layer DVD-9s instead of the double sided discs since the latest 3 sets have featured 13 episodes on 3 discs per set. Still VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA is a fun 1960s sci-fi series from Irwin Allen.
