Not The Best Ending To An Outstanding Season
30 July 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

A follow up episode to The Phantom Strikes as Captain Kruegar (Alfred Ryder) returns to cause more problems on the Seaview and take over Captain Crane's body.

Hang on a minute here! Kruegar signed off at the end of The Phantom Strikes with a well spoken speech about him not fitting in with current times, but this hour is saying to hell with all that just bring him back as if the speech never happened! I don't like that at all as I was just so impressed with his Phantom Strikes-speech!

On top of this, there is too little of Basehart and too much of Hedison! Sorry folks, I am not happy!

However, I am such a fan of Alfred Ryder's three guest roles in Voyage/Sea and his three guest roles in QM's The Invaders (1967) that I can gladly spend an hour watching him do almost anything. So I will call Return Of The Phantom good but not great.

This is the final episode of the 26 episode season two and I hope you have enjoyed my 26 IMDb reviews of this season, most of my reviews have been very positive.
