    It was the 60's the space race was on and the televisions were tuned to Lost In Space. The first season was in B&W and was quite adventurous and serious with some very good episodes and stories.



    The second thing the show was broadcasted in color and as soon as that happened it went Hi camp. the majority of the family became supporting castes and Will, Dr. Smith and the Robot became the mainstay. Silly plots, horrible writing and even worse sets made season 2 almost unbearable.

    Season 3 went back to some season 1 formula with mild camp and was much better than season 2. Sadly the damage had been done and the plug was pulled after only 3/4 of a season.moreless

    Hated Dr Smith, seemed like he should have been left on 1st planet.



    The rest of the show provided great action and actors
  • Started out great, but became so overwhelmingly silly even a kid could see through it.

    I was 11 years old when Lost in Space first hit the airwaves, and became an instant addict with the very first episode. Americas real life space program was going full guns in 1965 and I was a huge fan of that and a confirmed techno-geeksince the first grade. The first episode caught and held my attention...the Jupiter II mission was believable and mesmerizing when I was 11, and Dr. Smith was a genuine bad guy at first and not the pompous fool he was to become in later episodes. The series seemed to take the plight of the space family Robinson seriously at first, and then Irwin Allen brought out the guys in the rubber monster suits and the unbelievably naive storylines and Lost in Space quickly degenerated into the campy comedy classic it eventually became. Oh, I had my fun doing my Doctor Smith and Robot imitations like most of my contemporaries, did my share of 'Warning..DANGER Will Robinson' gags over the years, but never really got over my disappointment over the rapid decline of what could have been a really good science fiction series.moreless

    This show is a classic. It brings back memories for me to when I was nine years old and watching all of the glorious reruns of Lost in Space. It has good, old family values underneath the wacky outerspace plot. Good always wins out over evil in the end. Lost in Space shows strong mother/daughter bonds as well as strong father/son bonds on a weekly basis. Good old fashion hope and faith in others were also a virtue on this show, for humans as well as aliens. Last but not least, never give up on others. How many times did Dr. Robinson give Dr. Smith a second, third, fourth chance.....every week? Those were the lessons I learned from Lost in Space when I was small. Oh yeah, the giant talking carrot was funny too.moreless
