Seven Out Of Ten Episode
30 October 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

A rocket with its nuclear pile is about to crash into the San Francisco area.

I like the way the first half of this hour has shades of a disaster movie with concerned seaman Clark fearing his family will be killed by a falling rocket.

Also, it seems Voyage and Lost In Space both have the same actor playing the President of the USA: Ford Rainey. But since this was set in 1973 and LIS was set in 1997...he should have been several years older in LIS. But still, it feels nice having both shows in the same Irwin Allen universe.

This is a very early Voyage adventure, and for this reason I am sure Irwin Allen or ABC felt it right that we should see a lot of underwater filming with divers to keep true to the series premise. That is all good and well but the footage in question here is very lengthy and boring with sleepy music playing over it (the poor music problem would be fixed in the colour seasons).

The dull diver stuff takes three points away from the hour that gets seven out ten from me.
