YMMV / Sealab 2020

  • Adaptation Displacement: At the time many youngsters staying up late would have seen 2021, long before even knowing a 2020 episode. Subverted of course if you were alive in the 70s, earlier 90s or now that both are equally available on DVD.
  • Complaining About Shows You Don't Watch: This show seems to attract some of this from Sealab 2021 fans. Who will say 2021 was so much better but then back it up with statements that make it seem like they never watched 2020.
  • Vindicated by Reruns: In more recent times after the DVD release, there are various internet comments about people who remember finding the show boring in the 70s or on Cartoon Network, but since giving it another shot (and in a lot of cases now being older) they now enjoy the show a lot more than they ever had before.
