@ Mr. McOldsmith: which episode?


The Return of the Phantom. It was the last 10 minutes or so when Crane is possessed by Captain Kruger yelling (in that accent) "Lani, come back! Lahn-NEEE!" I turned on the TV because Lost in Space was due to come on and Voyage was ending and I really just thought it was awful. Flash forward about 10 years and I'm watching this one, totally loving it, and this scene comes on. Totally different opinion at that time.


Yes! Fantastic episode.

"Dr: Captain!

Captain Crane: (slightly higher pitched) Take care of ze... awkward pause ... Take care of the Admiral" big grin

I started watching the episodes starting just around this one (in French) and onward till the end of season 4. This took about a year and half by which time the first season episodes were re-broadcast on WPTZ (channel 5 - Plattsburgh) during the summer of 1975. On labour day, they started to rebroadcast the 2nd season, IIRC. By the time Return of the Phantom Strikes came around again, my appreciation of the episode, which I already loved, increased several fold.

The escape from the Island is scored with music from Jonah and the Whale. What is the music played when the missile destroys the Island? Leviathan? Very effective, followed by a snippet of the Goldsmith fanfare leading to a very satisfying conclusion.

Edit: another gem, this time from The Phantom Strikes:

"Chief Sharkey (talking to Kowalski)... this guy is as normal as you are.

Then, pointing to Riley while shrugging: Maybe twice as normal." big grin

There's music from Jonah and the Whale, The Phantom Strikes, then Escape from Venice, The Cyborg, And Five Of Us Are Left, Leviathan finishing off with Jonah again for the Fanfare.Music editors in those days had a hell of a job...

A&C still hasn't listed his favorite episodes.
Must we guess?

What do you think A&C's #1 is?

I'll start by saying it's either "The Terrible Leprechaun" or "Deadly Creature Below".

Deadly Waters:



That's from The Cyborg when Nelson is tapping his Morse Code message to Crane.

If you meant The Death Watch, that's mostly "The Monster" by Randy Newman (it's on the Lost in Space set) but there's an insert of music I don't recognize but the rest is the Newman piece.

@ Mr. McOldsmith: Many thanks. smile The 8 1/2 year old me found the scene and music spine-tingling and when the radiation alarm went off, the suspense became unbearable... a bit like the suspense of waiting for our VTTBOTS sets to arrive. big grin

Edit: Going to add the Newman piece to my VTTBOTS playlist.

"Deadly Waters" is a cracking good Voyage episode, particularly for the third season. It would have fit in well in the second year just as easily. Writer Robert Vincent Wright usually contributed stories with some emotional depth (The Terrible Toys notwithstanding).

Indeed. Which reminds me. I'd better get cracking on my favo(u)rites list.

Thanks again, Mr. McOldsmith. You are a fountain of knowledge. smile

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA - music by Paul Sawtell, Jerry GOLDSMITH, Lennie Hayton, Leith Stevens, Alexander Courage and Nelson Riddle


I received mine this morning and i've been listening attentively. Sounds fabulous and the set is beautifully designed along with a great booklet that is well written, informative and complemented with great pics (including the eye-poppingly striking Barbara Bouchet - twice! as well as the stunning Ina Balin, whose beauty left me struck dumb, 45 years ago, and just as much today). There weren't many chicks on VTTBOTS, but Irwin sure knew how to cast them. wink

The fine people at LaLaLand outdid themselves again. Kudos to the entire team, in particular Jeff Bond, whose affection and grasp of the subject material shines through in every note and every paragraph, but also to the great Neil S. Bulk who was, not to put too fine a point on it, masterful.

Of course, there is way more than enough material to justify a volume 2, but then if you know me at all you already know that wink. Here's to volume 1 selling out, and soon. smile
