A 1964-68 Creator/IrwinAllen SciFi show starring Richard Basehart as Admiral Harriman Nelson and David Hedison as Captain Lee Crane, and set on the experimental nuclear-powered research submarine, ''Seaview''. The ultimate use of the RecycledScript: almost every episode can be summarized as "MonsterOfTheWeek is defeated by [[RayGun Laser Of The Week]]." The first season, filmed and broadcast in black & white[[note]]ecept for the pilot, which was filmed in color[[/note]], featured more serious and thoughtful stories, along with a greater UsefulNotes/ColdWar emphasis. When the series [[UsefulNotes/SwitchToColor switched to colour]] starting with the second season, it was used as an excuse for a big dramatic storyline during the switch, and the introduction of a new version of the ship.
