Seaquest DSV: Season One (1993)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Seaquest DSV: Season One (1993) In the year 2021 Captain Nathan Bridger (Roy Scheider) is coerced out of retirement to command the Seaquest, a huge submarine that he designed years before, after the previous captain (Shelley Hack of CHARLIE'S ANGELS tv series) goes psycho. In fact, the first episode involves her trying to bring down her former command. Of course, she doesn't win, or else there'd be no show.

The main premise of the show is that because of Earth's overpopulation, people have started colonizing the oceans with underwater cities and nations and Seaquest, as part of the UEO (United Earth Oceans) is there to help and enforce UEO laws. The crew consists of Commander Jonathan Ford (Don Franklin), Lt. Cmdr. Katherine Hitchcock (Stacy Haiduk of LUTHER THE GEEK), Lt. Benjamin Krieg (John D'Aquino), Dr. Kristin Wesphalen (Stephanie Beacham of DRACULA 1971) and Lucas Wolenczak (Jonathan Brandis of IT), boy genius who is sort of the equivalent of the Wesley Crusher character from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. There's also Darwin, a dolphin that can talk via a system Lucas has devised.

The first half a dozen episodes start off very scientific, then when they discover a hundred year old ship on the bottom of the ocean haunted by two ghosts they have to put to rest. The doctor is possessed by one of the spirits. The funniest episode is when one of the crew members finds these huge glowing gemstones on the ocean floor and they turn out to be the bioluminescent droppings of a giant monster squid.

The special effects are top-notch, though I think a bit too murky at times. The dumbest, part, however, is that during the end credits some "Mr Wizard" guy comes on and tells us facts about the oceans. Lame.

SEAQUEST is a decent enough show, a great followup to VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
