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, featured more serious and thoughtful stories, along with a greater UsefulNotes/ColdWar emphasis. When the series switched to colour during its run, it was used as an excuse for a big dramatic storyline during the switch, and the introduction of a new version of the ship.

* ReplacedTheThemeTune: Like ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' decades later, the series had a different theme tune on exactly ''one'' episode - JerryGoldsmith scored the season two opener "Jonah And The Whale" and wrote his own rather more serious theme to replace the brighter Paul Sawtell one. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kgMx0ib5YQ You can hear both themes here.]]

!!This TV series provides examples of :

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: The downed alien in "The Sky is Falling" is quite ugly by human standards. So, when talking to Admiral Nelson, it takes on a form it feels Nelson wouldn't find offensive: [[spoiler: that of Nelson, himself. And it later does the same for Capt. Crane.]]
