A 1964-68 Creator/IrwinAllen SciFi show starring Richard Basehart as Admiral Nelson and David Hedison as Captain 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

A 1964-68 Creator/IrwinAllen SciFi show starring Richard Basehart as Admiral Nelson and David Hedison as Captain 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]]." (It should be noted that the first season, filmed and broadcast in black & white, featured more serious and thoughtful stories, along with a greater ColdWar emphasis.) A bit of a wet version of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' (which it preceded by two years). Compare ''Series/SeaQuestDSV''.

Based on [[Film/VoyageToTheBottomOfTheSea the 1961 film of the same name]], in which our heroes defeat a [[GlobalWarning global heat wave]] (caused by the then recently discovered Van Allen radiation belt [[HollywoodScience catching on fire]]) through DeusExNukina. No, seriously. The movie's storyline was later on recycled as a series episode titled "The Sky's On Fire", complete with copious amounts of StockFootage from the motion picture.

Interestingly, the series switched from black and white to colour during its run, which was used as an excuse for a big dramatic storyline during the switch, and the introduction of a new version of the ship.
