  • Trivia

    • From the book Science Fiction Television Series: Terry Becker mentioned the scene where Nelson and Sharkey first come ashore in the grotto. He told Basehart that the scene could be "kinda funny". Basehart followed his lead. When the episode was screened for the ABC executives, they found it hysterically funny. Irwin Allen was upset with Becker and Basehart for trying to turn his show into a comedy. Continuing on from the book Irwin Allen Productions -- Allen was even more annoyed when he learned that Becker and Basehart had read the script as written, with no ad-libs.
