Show Summary

In the year 2018, mankind is colonizing the oceans and exploiting their resources, establishing small undersea farming, mining, and manufacturing communities. But with the newfound potential comes old-fashioned conflict and the United Earth Oceans Organization (U.E.O.) assigns the submarine, seaQuest, DSV, led by Captain Nathan Bridger to keep the underwater peace and generally patrol the planet's final frontier. Amongst the crew is a teenage genius, Lucas Wolenczak, and Darwin, the intelligent dolphin, who thanks to Lucas' inventions can understand human speech and whose speech can be translated in to English.

In the show's third season, the crew was thrust forward ten years prompting the show's title to change to seaQuest, 2032. A new captain, Oliver Hudson was at the helm as Captain Nathan Bridger retired.

FILMING LOCATION:

seaQuest was filmed on location in Los Angeles, California, USA for the first season and in Orlando, Florida, USA for the second and third seasons.

  • SeaQuest DSV

    I Love SeaQuest DSV and I have Season 1 and Season 2 and I will be looking for Season 3 soon but right now I am not sure when I will be able to find it
  • Fun and entertaining, been missing it for over 10 years

    9.5
    This show was one of my favorites from the early 90s.



    The characters and the places they go are just awsome. The show its self is a cool blend of military action and science know how. Although some of the show is a little out there, especially those alien episodes, the stories are fun and you could see how most of the technology is just around the corner.



    Although the special effects are dated now back then they were top of the line for a tv show. Darwin was especially fun to watch, come on who does not love a talking dolphin.



    I loved the first 2 seasons and the stories were great, but the 3rd and final season was just ok. It never really got going, it changed from being a mostly scientific adventure series to a military one adn it just sort of lost me. Also it was a real shame that they lost the original Captian of the Seaquest. The first 2 seasons are definate buys on dvd and they look great, but the 3rd season is just ok and if you are a fan of the show worth a watch but that is about it.moreless
  • This is a classic!

    SeaQuest is an absolute classic. A take on the traditional explores in space, you get explorers in the sea. The writing of the show if pretty high quality with good episode plots and lots of fun characters. The acting can be a bit campy, but in a fun sci-fi way not in a terrible I can't watch this way. Its a definite must see show for sci-fi fans and a good show for people with families. Its entertaining enough for the adults without being to scary or graphic for a preteen. The production values on the episodes is also high, which sells a sci-fi show.moreless

  • Has a show ever gone from good to crap as quickly as "seaQuest?"

    8.0
    When it premiered, "seaQuest" blew me away. I loved every minute of it, and it was a Sunday night ritual in our house, marking the end of the weekend and serving as one of the few shows my whole family could watch together. The mix of adventure, sci-fi and humor, coupled with a cast that seemed to be enjoying themselves under the command of Roy Schieder, was perfect. seaQuest saw action, to be sure, but there was always a sense of awe and wonder about the ocean and the world beneath the sea. This wasn't a gunship, it was a vessel of discovery.



    Then Season 1 ended, and the downfall began.



    What went wrong? Too much to list here, but the sense of adventure and exploration (along with oceanic tidbits from Bob Ballard) were jettisoned for more action (which was usually mindless), more women (who lacked the charm and beauty of Stacy Haiduk and Stephanie Beachum) and more sci-fi (which brought far too many aliens, monsters, ghosts and mutants to the forefront). It's the curse that befalls any show that wants to aim high. Network interference inevitably brings it back down to earth. Don't even get me started on the retcon which jettisoned Schieder. I wanted the seaQuest of Season 1 back. No Daggers, no DeLuise brothers, no Neptune, no travel to other planets. Just the seaQuest trying to keep the peace and aid humanity as the UEO tried to control the oceans.



    At least Season 1 is out on DVD. A bit hokey now, but it has recaptured my imagination. And I don't have the subsequent seasons to disappoint me.moreless
