It's a killer jellyfish!!!???
3 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" was a fantasy adventure series. A few episodes were believable...most were pure fantasy. So, while the story idea in "Mutiny" is insanely ridiculous for many reasons, you can't fault the show as it wasn't intended to be believable. Remember this when I give you a summary of the show!

Admiral Nelson is aboard the Neptune, a sister ship of the Seaview. However, the sub is soon attacked and destroyed by a 1000-foot long jellyfish and only the first officer and Nelson survive, as they were off scuba diving during the attack. Soon, the pair are stuck floating on the sea...hoping to survive long enough to be rescued. And, if they are rescued, will anyone believe a giant jellyfish destroyed the ship?? And, what's with Nelson...as he soon begins to act rather strangely.

The guest star in this one was Harold Stone as Admiral Starke. As usual, he plays a very angry and grouchy character. Apart from Simon Oakland, no one played angry folks more than Harold Stone! So, it wasn't much of a stretch for him to be Mr. Grumpus in this installment! As for Basehart, his grouchiness WAS unusual and makes this one worth seeing! However, relatively speaking, it's a tad disappointing...
