  • mark goddard was underused in the series. his best episodes were with jonathan harris in the third season.

    he was a pretty stock character when the show started. his banter with dr. smith was a highlight. major don west was the pilot of the jupiter 2 and he was famous for crash landings. he occasionally landed on a perfect circle. i liked mark goddard as he was pretty rock solid as major west. he was caught between the parallel world of dr. smith, will and the robot and the rest of the family. his character could intermingle with the two worlds. in the early episodes, he was out with john, maureen, judy, penny and the bloop on the chariot. later he was left to watch over smith, will and the robot. a good casting choice made by irwin allenmoreless
