  • One of the more memorable episodes, both dramatic and funny

    In this episode, the Robinsons are summoned to an intergalactic tribunal, presided over by an assortment of weird monsters that they encountered at one time or another in the course of their travels, for alleged misdeeds that were committed against them. Eventually the aliens realize that it was all actually Dr. Smith's fault and prepare to sentence him to be exiled to a desolate planet, but the Robinsons graciously save Smith's neck with a most interesting defense. The monsters may look cheesy and you may wonder how some of them are even able to speak, but this is one of my favorites from the series -- imaginative, scary and even funny at times, this one has it all.
  • It's a good episode where you can see scenes from episode of the first season in black & white.

    This is a really good episode where the writer cleverly used a popular plot of the first season to establish the background of the episode. I think that it's the only episode beside the one with Pirate Tucker where they linked an episode of the first season with one of the second one. Also, it's amusing to see the old scenes with the original characterization of Jonathan Harris where his Dr. Smith was really ruthless and murderish, along with the new scenes where the Dr. Smith is more cowardly.
