This is the most serious part of the classic science fiction form the 60's. It is black and white but that is how most shows were at that time. It is a classic filled with some of the best stories. The first half is more science fiction and the second half is more fantasy. It is before the infamous "Will and Dr. Smith" routine :-) You actually get stories involving the whole family; Penny and even Will without so much Smith. It is not totally camp as the latter series got. You won't go wrong watching it and it is great for the whole family.

Back to the future with the Robinsons, a Robot, and a coward.
Verified purchase
I grew up with Lost In Space but it was never the one show that I always looked forward to. As with many I'm most familiar with the diabolical Dr. Smith and the Robot's calling "Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!" So as my wife and I worked our way through this thick as thieves Season 1 collection it was fairly fresh for us and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

If you are a person who can still stand watching B&W TV or movies (I know that some, unfortunately, won't) you can find the serialized LIS as a bit of a time capsule. Ahead of its time in the 1960s its look to the future and space travel is especially fun now. The series really started off seriously minded, taking the notion of space exploration and future settlement of other planets in our solar system. This surprised us given what we mainly remembered from the show, and it further surprised us to watch the Robinson family take about four episodes before crash landing on a planet only to remain on this extremely hostile planet for the rest of the season! Lastly, it was a surprise to see the treacherous Dr. Smith take quite a while to develop his yellow streak and the Robot, who develops a funny antagonistic persona toward Smith by season's end, hardly ever belt out his electronic catchphrase.

The series, always ending on a cliffhanger, started to wear a little thin with their formula by season's end with Smith always putting his earthen family at risk over his own instincts and base desires. Why in the world they never allowed Captain John Robinson or pilot Major Don West to deck the dude or lock him in the brig (which surely they could have made) is beyond me, other than the writer's using Smith as the cuckoo catalyst for most of the family's woes. But it reminded me of Gilligan from the "Gilligan's Island" television series. Watching it when I was young his goof antics that always screwed up the castaways' hopes of getting rescued never bothered me but as an adult...it bothered me. And the same principle goes along here, but the unwillingness of the Robinson clad to resort to base violence is part of the charm of this series that is family friendly and refreshing. I know that it was a product of the late 1960s but I was shocked when the family prayed to God (several times throughout the series) and firmly drew their morals from a divine notion. It was refreshing to see! I can't remember the last time I saw anything like that recently on TV.

Perhaps it would be worth it to get lost in space again if we could "progress back to the future."

More science than contemporary viewers think.
Verified purchase
This is a wonderful series that, in the first season at least, sought to interject science into "science fiction" more than most would suspect. It isn't "campy" so much as it is simply dated in terms of special effects and we tend to compare productions like "Lost In Space" with the "Star Wars" level and sophistication.

The series is a 1960's space version of the "Swiss Family Robinson" that seeks to colonize another world but finds itself off course and unable to return to Earth. This was an era in which overpopulation was seriously considered as a future certainty and the Robinsons were volunteers to leave Earth to make a life elsewhere. The series tackled some interesting hypotheticals such as a planet with a radically elliptical orbit that alternated between extreme cold and extreme heat. It looked at life evolving very differently on another planet than on Earth as well as encountering intelligent life very different from ourselves. It includes concepts such as hydroponic gardening (something considered the "next wave" by some serious scientists of the day) as well as robotic tools.

The cast is actually quite good with Guy Williams as Professor John Robinson and veteran actress June Lockhart as wife Maureen. Jonathan Harris plays the scheming Dr. Smith while Mark Goddard does a credible job as Major Don West, the Jupiter II's tough guy pilot. The children's roles are reasonably well cast. If one notices, the music was composed by "Johnny Williams" - the same John Williams who later composed music for the Star Wars films, Jaws and many others.

This was really a ground-breaking series in its day and, although subsequent seasons were indeed "campy" and more oriented toward humor and away from science and adventure, this first season was very much in keeping with the times of the space race to the Moon. There's a wonderful sense of innocence and great adventure in this first season that I fondly remember from my childhood. I very much recommend this to audiences young and old with five stars.

The first 6 episodes started out good, non silly. After that Dr. Smith became a clown and the adventure/survival aspect of the show was lost. We all grew tired of his screaming useless nature, but Irwin gave us cool looking ship's the Seaview and the Jupiter 2, which was a big reason I watched the shows plus the robot. On a side note Voyage to the bottom of the sea had some really good episodes the first season, more serious less monsters.

Blasting off with the Robinson party once again!

Like The Andy Griffith Show from the same decade, "Lost in Space" was a much better program when it was in black and white. Of course, the major change that occurred in the color episodes was the jumping on the "Batman" bandwagon by producer/creator Irwin Allen. That brought about harsh criticism from the strong 1st-year fan base but that's another story.

As far as these 30 episodes, including the unaired pilot, are concerned, the show's initial season was unlike anything ever seen on television up to that point. Featuring a cast of veteran television and movie performers, "Lost in Space", definitely was high on the talent roster. Both Williams and Lockhart had a following from their respective roles in "Zorro" and "Lassie". Billy Mumy had appeared in two classic "Twilight Zone" episodes while Angela Cartwright had been a pixie on "The Danny Thomas Show" and was also featured in a little film by the name of "The Sound of Music".

The show, featured a most impressive lineup of guest stars: Warren Oates ("Hello, Stranger"), Albert Salmi ("The Space Pirate"), Academy Award-winner Mercedes McCambridge ("The Space Croppers"), "Hogan's Heroes" star Werner Klemperer ("All That Glitters"), character acting veteran Royal Dano ("The Lost Civilization"), Torin Thatcher ("The Space Trader"). Michael Ansara, the former husband of Barbara Eden, also appeared in "The Challenge" with a very young Kurt Russell. Michael J. Pollard, a few years away from his Oscar-nomination in "Bonnie and Clyde" popped up in "The Magic Mirror." Michael Rennie from the classic "The Day the Earth Stood Still" starred in the only two-part episode in the show's three-year run: "The Keeper".

Kevin Hagen, who would later star in Allen's "Land of the Giants" along with playing the doctor on "Little House on the Prairie", assays the role of a rather hairy alien that manages to "duplicate" Dr. Smith in "His Majesty Smith", one of the more amusing shows of the season.

Besides featuring impressive state-of-the art effects, "Lost in Space" also showcased the music of an up-and-coming composer by the name of John Williams.

The majority of the first season stories were quite strong, with great direction and engaging plots. They ran the gamut of straight adventure to light-hearted pathos and family relationships. Besides the episodes mentioned earlier, the best episodes featuring the principal characters include "The Reluctant Stowaway," "Island in the Sky," "There Were Giants on Earth," "The Hungry Sea," "Wish Upon a Star," and two that were possibly the "darkest" in the show's history: "One of Our Dogs is Missing" and "Follow the Leader."

With a new version of the show looming on the horizon, one can only hope that the producers have respect for the original and try to maintain some of its integrity.

A Science Fiction Pioneer Family
Verified purchase
You can count the number of science fiction television shows that left a lasting impression on viewers on your fingers. As campy as "Lost in Space" sometimes was, it left an impression that is nearly as strong for many people as the impression that "Star Trek" left. Of course "Star Trek" was a much bolder show, and tried to present some of the infinite possibilities that exist in the universe. "Lost in Space" reached only a brief distance into the future and was the first non-animated television show that focused on a family of space pioneers. There are plot holes galore. Dr. Smith has to be one of the most obnoxious central characters in a television show ever. And yet, I retain my fondness for this show.

There are 29 black and white episodes from the first season in this collection. This collection also has the "unaired" pilot episode, which contains truth and fiction. The pilot episode was originally unaired, but I am sure that I have seen that episode, perhaps on the Science Fiction Channel. Many portions of the pilot episode also found their way into some of weekly episode. This collection also has a promotional film used to sell advertisers on the show.

The series began quite seriously, and remained relatively serious throughout much of the first season, though there were lapses into farce and camp. The series begins on earth with the auspicious purpose of sending the first of many families on a pioneer voyage into space. Dr. Smith, who began the series as a calcuating, cold-blooded individual, sabotages the mission. Unfortunately for bumbling Dr. Smith, he is caught on board the spaceship as it takes off. The ship is damaged by Dr. Smith's sabotage and goes off course, eventually settling on a planet, where it remains for the entire first season.

Some of the episodes held much promise for what the series could have been. "My Friend, Mr. Nobody," with guest William Bramley, explored the origins of possible galactic life and the meaning of intelligence. "The Sky Is Falling" with guests Don Matheson, Francois Ruggieri and Eddie Rosson explored how we might encounter families from other species and wondered whether we might react as intelligent beings or paranoid, prejudiced, suspicious beings.

Guest stars ranged quite far. The iconic Michael Rennie of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" fame appeared in an episode where our possible relationship to others in the universe was explored. A very young Kurt Russell tried to prove his worth against Will Robinson, and John and Will Robinson managed to teach both Kurt and father Michael Ansara something about being a father and son. Character actor Albert Salmi appeared as a pirate in a fun episode. Robbie the Robot guest appeared in one episode. Michael J. Pollard, who would later appear on the television show "Star Trek" (episode titled "Miri"), appeared as a boy in a dimension behind mirrors. Sherry Jackson played a beautiful hick in an episode, and would also appear in "Star Trek" (episode titled "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"). Some of the other numerous guests include Werner Klemperer ("Hogan's Heroes"), Royal Dano, and Kym Karath ("The Sound of Music").

I think it is easy in this age of sophisticated digital effects and a chain of quality and classic science fiction television that extends back to at least the original "Outer Limits" to look down on "Lost in Space" as unworthy of appreciation. However, the series was influential and it was memorable. Had Irwin Allen been allowed to maintain the serious nature of the show, it is possible that "Lost in Space" would have been the landmark television show that "Star Trek" became. I know I watched both, and I know I enjoyed "Star Trek" when it came out the year following the debut of "Lost in Space." I considered myself lucky that two such wonderful shows were on at the same time.

I look back on "Lost in Space" with fondness, and I absolutely enjoyed watching every single episode in this collection. I know I will enjoy the episodes in season 2 and season 3. Perhaps my fondness is all nostalgia. If so, I will revel in my nostalgia and just maybe I will watch all the episodes one more time.

As a side note, after being a little boy and watching "Lost in Space," I admired Will Robinson a lot. I credit Will being a role model for my later years when I studied electronics and physics in college. This show may have been campy, but I am glad that I was encouraged by a show like this one. Perhaps we should all wish for more campy science fiction shows to encourage children to become scientists and engineers.

Great Start to Evolving Series

I've always been a Lost in Space fan. From the days when I was very young when Mr. Keema scared me when he revealed himself, to rediscovering it in the late 80's to watching it now for "warm fuzzy" memories, the show has always entertained me. At my younger age, I loved Season 2. As a teen, I loved Season 3 and now, I find that Season 1 was simply the best.

Season 1 opens with 5 dramatic and suspenseful episodes that rival some of the best sci fi / adventure stories out there. While this isn't "good" science, it is fun. Lost in Space rarely, if at all, came close to the adventure and true danger shown in the first 5 episodes of season 1. They go from nearly being killed in an asteroid belt, to almost destroyed by the Robot and ultimately fighting the elements on a strange planet. I won't go in the "science" of the show because it wasn't good and logic and continuity (what happened to the dog they found?!?!) were not closely followed. This show was about a close family and their adventures in outer space. Period.

Lost in Space started out as a serious survival story and most of the first season deals with that. Despite a road bump with "Welcome, Stranger", the first half of Season 1 was very dramatic in its impact. The family had to find food, shelter, water at the same time as battling the unknown and sometimes hostile creatures. Then, the show takes a lurching turn with The Sky Pirate and rarely looks back. From that point on, the main focus of the show was "comedic villain" of the week and how Will, Smith and the Robot deal with the issue with Dad coming to the rescue most of the time.

Despite the format change, the remaining first season episodes still had a lot of charm and excitement to them. "All that Glitters" shows a remorseful side of Smith that we rarely see. "Follow the Leader" is one of the best "alien possession" episodes of the series. And the "Magic Mirror" has a very surreal mood that the series never approached again.

The cast was generally consistent in their performances. Guy Williams was solid, Angela Cartwright (when given a good story) could melt your heart, and June Lockheart was one of the best TV moms. Who know that Jonathan Harris' Dr. Smith would become one of the most memorable characters in television history?

Season 1 doesn't feature anything in the way of interesting extras. We do get the unaired pilot which is only interesting in the fact it has no Robot or Dr. Smith. The rest of that pilot was cut into most of the first 5 episodes. The back and white quality of the DVD's is crisp and excellent.

Lost in Space will always have a place in my heart. Each season of the show had its own unique personality. Season 1 was about survival and adjustment to their situation and it is the very best of the three season series.
