Sealab 2000

ANIMATED ECO-FINGER-POINTING creation, usually of a Saturday morning, dispensing heavy doses of Al Gore-esque “this is your future, kids, unless you don’t buck up your ideas” syrup. Dr. Paul Williams (voiced by ROSS MARTIN) headed pioneering underwater expedition to check out chances for long-term sub-aqua survival, recruiting 250 mates to live in helpfully transparent, spacious fully-furnished (70s style) pod. Frustrating endless issues-based talk (seaweed as potential food sources, nuclear energy, capsizing Arctic research station) soon cluttered up chances for decent action/adventure.

    Ummm… it’s actually “Sealab 2020.” Artemus Gordon – er, I mean Ross Martin even says so in the opening! (This later got repurposed for Adult Swim as “Sealab 2021” with hilarious consequences – the term is, for once, not used sarcastically.)
