This is something I’ve been working on together with MartyMcflies (check out his awesome Youtube page). He dug out the raw for this from some half-dead torrent and since it looked interesting to me I offered to translate it for him. When I saw this it immediately reminded me of those 80s, early 90s VHS releases with horrible dubs and labels like “Children’s Classics” and “Family Fun Classics”. And indeed, it turned out this WAS released by Harmony Gold as “The Undersea Encounter” (here‘s a version with a Russian voiceover) so some of you may be familiar with this.
And if you have no idea what this is, it’s a made for TV movie from 1981, (very loosely) based on Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It’s about 70 minutes long, and expect a lot of submarine battles and mutants with machine guns.
So here’s our Valentine’s Day gift to you (it has love in the title, so it counts).
See? I can still release an episode in less than a week!
Also, from this episode on, I’m calling the Bismarck’s final attack “Organic Formation” as it’s properly called. And I have to admit that it took me embarasingly long to realise the mistake. I just always heard it as “volcanic” and accepted it, without ever bothering to check. I thought it made sense and it sounded cool. I mean, what does “organic” even mean? That’s just silly!
When I finish the show, I will rerelease the previous episodes with revised translations and I will correct the mistake then.
