  • In search of a lovely floral arrangement for the robot (naturally!), the space castaways encounter talking vegetation

    Often mentioned as the complete nadir of the series, this is actually in some ways its finest. Yes, the costumes are rather poor, but certainly no worse than most of the others used in the series. Frankly the concept behind the episode, while not a new one, is one of the better scenarios used in the programme. The episode never stops entertaining its audience either, which is far more than what can be said about most of the mid-season episodes of Season 2. One does not watch "Lost in Space" in search of a new "Citizen Kane," one watches to have fun. Easily the most fun episode of the programme's entire run. As another reviewer commented, I too would show this episode before any other to someone who hadn't seen the series in years just to show them it really was as ridiculously silly and entertaining as they remember it.
