  • It's goofy beyond belief and sets the template for the second season but its also light and actually works.

    The robot character has been the least examined aspect of the show (outside of poor Judy Robinson) and this episode adds a camp aspect and brings him into full circle. The family has now grown attached to it like a pet. Will and Dr. Smith as well as the robot now solidify the trio that will be the only characters explored in season 2. John and Don seem to only exist to comment on a situation not drive it. However, I enjoyed it. To see the family enamored with this new toy and to see the Robot of the family acting in an entirely illogical manner was entertaining. The battle scene in the end is just a hoot. I know I've cursed the camp aspect of the show but unlike prior episodes that have mixed the premise at least this show stays on even terms with the audience.
