  • Ugh.

    Shiftless, selfish, bone-idle twits. These are apparently "space hippies", told by their great leader (a computer?!) to be useful.

    Their job is to go blow up a planet.

    Sadly, the Robinson family is vacationing on that planet at that time.

    I dunno. The 'hippies' seem more like thuggy little brutish selfish toddlers than anything else, the 'spacecraft' they travel on has got to be the most ridiculous concoction ever (don't worry folks, they re-use the prop in later stories...), and the noise those "drills" they use seems more irritating than accurate. This one can readily be pased, there is nothing even remotely redeeming here.
  • space hippies, come on!

    the whole space hippies thing was stupid. a young daniel j travanti was funny and i did like the space motorcycles. jonathan harris goes way over the top.
  • dr. smith becomes charles atlas

    a group of space hippies are sent to blow up the planet. they are forced to do this after they are deemed not good citizens by their leader. they come via space motorcycles and have bad additudes. when dr.smith, will and the robot discover one of the explosive devices sealed in a box, dr. smith orders the robot to open it by force. a green smoke appears and dr. smith breathes it in and turns into a strong man with green hair and a booming voice. this one is high on the camp factor. the scenes when dr. smith is losing his strenth and he has to excersize to get it back are good, otherwise after an eternity of bad scenes and overacting by jonathan harris, the so-called space hippies are defeated and everything goes back to normal? kind of long in the tooth, this is not one of the better ones.
  • Space Hippie "Blues"

    Q: What do you get when you take LIS add a little of " The Wild Ones" and a pinch of "Sampson and Delilah"?

    A: You get an episode that kept "Danny" Travanti awake on many a night during his Hill Street Blues stint
