TV Series
    (September 14, 1964-March 31, 1968)
    ABC science fiction TV series about the adventures of a futuristic submarine and its crew
    Produced by Irwin Allen
    Starred Richard Basehart and David Hedison
    Inspired by the 1961 movie of the same name
    Although the pilot was in color, the first 32 episodes were shot in black and white, although by 1964, shooting TV series in color was standard.
    The scientific basis of much of the show was nonsense.
    Some of the episodes were frankly goofy with; evil brains from outer space, werewolves, leprechauns, Nazi ghosts, a visit to the inside of a whale, and time travel all making appearances.
    It was set in the far distant seventies and eighties.
    The regular cast was all male (perhaps understandable) and (not so understandable) all white.
    It had no final episode to wrap things up.
    It used a lot of stock footage from previous episodes and other Irwin Allen productions.
    It was neither nominated for nor received any type of award.
    It was the sixties' longest running science fiction series and biggest hit of Irwin Allen's four 1960's science fiction TV series.
    The Flying Sub was cool beyond words.
    It did very well in merchandising, inspiring an original novel length book, a comic book series, and a popular lunch box.
    Many of the episodes, especially those which reflected the then Cold War times, were genuinely gripping and exciting.
