Product Description

Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Bill Mumy. The Robinsons continue their bumpy ride through space in the first 15 episodes from the second season, including Blast off into Space," Wild Adventure," The Ghost Planet," Space Circus," The Green Dimension" and more. 4 DVDs. 1966/color/7 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

While Lost in Space may never enter the pantheon of great television programming, the 1960s sci-fi show certainly has its charms, all of them in evidence on this first volume of episodes from the second season. Produced by Irwin Allen, who would later be responsible for blockbuster disaster films like The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, these 16 episodes from 1966-67 (spread out over four DVDs) find the show undergoing some changes, both technically (from black & white into color) and in terms of tone (more campy and tongue-in-cheek, especially as the season goes on). The latter is due in large part to the performance of Jonathan Harris as Dr. Zachary Smith, who puts the "arch" in archvillain (it was his meddling that got them all lost in the first place). Harris's portrayal of Smith as cowardly, duplicitous, pompous, and not a little fey often goes right over the top, but the other characters (including Guy Williams as Prof. John Robinson, June Lockhart as his wife Maureen, and young Bill Mumy as Will) are so bland and generic that Harris, the family robot, and guest stars like Strother Martin and Wally Cox offer the only available relief.

The Lost in Space storylines are predictable (almost always involving some alien-related jeopardy prompted by Smith's greed and foolishness) and the special effects and production values won't excite anyone used to the wonders of the digital age. Still, this is television, where budgets are smaller and schedules much tighter, so lowered expectations are in order anyway. Some users may feel shortchanged by the absence of extra features, or by the fact that the set doesn't include the entire season (the second part is available separately). But the transfers are good and the DVD menus easily navigable. But on the whole Lost in Space devotees--and there are many of them--should be well satisfied. --Sam Graham

4.0 out of 5 stars Danger! Campy as the danger may be. May 28, 2006
Season 1 of "Lost in Space" was presented as a single collection of eight DVDs. Season 2 was split into two volumes. Season 2 was originally shown in 1966-67, and though I no longer recall the contrast between "Star Trek," which I watched contemporaneously with "Lost in Space," and this show, the contrast had to be significant. Though some of the first sixteen episodes of season 2 attempted serious subjects, as the first sixteen episodes progressed the series became increasingly campy, with "The Girl from the Green Dimension" being the silliest of the bunch. I have to believe that Harry Raybould, who played Urso, looked back on his role in this episode and groans.

On the other hand there are the episodes such as "The Golden Man." This episode attempts to show that beauty is only skin deep. While the acting is more than a little over the top, with veteran actor Dennis Patrick barely visible behind his golden makeup, the show does an excellent job of making its point.

I found the episode "A Visit to Hades" to be very interesting. Veteran actor Gerald Mohr does a nice job of playing a character with more than a passing resemblance to Satan, though we learn he is not. Wally Cox takes a turn as a character with more bluff than bite in "The Forbidden World." Peter Brocco, a veteran of more than 200 film and television appearances, makes his mark in "The Deadly Games of Gamma 6."

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Set! November 4, 2004
Verified Purchase
This is one great series that I have watched since I was a kid in the 70's during it's rerun period. The color on these episodes looks great! And the sound as crisp as ever.

I can Hardly wait for season 2 vol. 2 later this month!

This is highly recommended for all Lost in Space fans out there!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Smith and the Robot go camp December 30, 2004
the second season vol. 1 is not as good as vol. 2 which has better stories and less cheezy monsters. but i really enjoyed it anyway. the color is magnificent, the stories are passable, the highlights are Dr. Smith & the Robot. it's funny, the first half of the second season, Dr. Smith is still willing to desroy the Robinsons without a concience. in the second have the doctor is a bit more sympathetic towards Will and the Robot, there are a few tearful farewells when Smith and the Robot are supposed to be leaving for good. all the while the rest of the Robinsons, except Don, let Smith do anything he pleases and barely say anything. the Robinsons are way too serious, the Robot, Dr. Smith and Will carry the camp. i can't wait for season three since this show is becoming as addictive as it was when i was a kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous September 3, 2004
By J. Bock
5 stars is for content. It's FOX's braindead deicision making that is Ridiculous. The fact that the UK release as well as the Japanese release feature the ENTIRE second season in one box while the US gets to be the lab rat on this "brainstorm" is ridiculous. I saw LIS season 1, selling off the shelves at Wal MArt, Sams, Costco, Target...exactly WHAT chain are they trying to lure in with these half-season sets? Dollar General and Eckerds?? It makes no sense whatsoever when the likes of Punky Brewster, Knight Rider and FOX's own 24 are being released in full season sets. They're experimenting and we are the ones who suffer. My advice, find a cheap multiregion DVD player, they're cheap these days, and buy the COMPLETE UK version, it has classy packaging as well, UNLIKE VOL one in the U.S....and it was released back the first week of July! Full season 2, and released 2 months earlier...in the UK where the fanbase is much smaller. Go figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Farcical Fantasy July 22, 2005
Lost In Space Season 2 picks right up where Season 1 ended, by introducing us again to "comedic villain" of the week. And despite an almost 3 episode stretch where you can feel a slight return to pure adventure, it takes the "comedic villain" of the week formula and adds on farce and fantasy. Thus, you have season 2.

Season 2 Volume 1 is the first half of a season that tried to reinvent the series but it then crashes (literally) head first into farce. That doesn't mean it wasn't often charming and fun, but the Lost in Space of early Season 1 would never return. The opening episode, Blast of Into Space is an episode that rids us of the villain early to focus once again on the plight of their situation. "Wild Adventure", the best of Season 2 and one of the strongest of the series, is a great space bound adventure getting them close to Earth. And while Ghost Planet was silly at times, it wasn't a planet that they were stuck on.

However, from the middle of Forbidden World on, the adventure element was nearly gone and we had fun, comical episodes wish some dashes of danger. The first half of Season 2, featured in this volume, is arguably the best. "Prisoners of Space" gave us a break from the visiting villain and while a flashback show, it was fairly riveting for the series. After that, we enter a stretch of bland yet still entertaining episodes. "The Golden Man" featured horrible masks and beach ball bombs but it was one of the stronger shows of the season. As volume 1 ends, we start hitting some of the worst episodes of the series.

The DVD transfers are crisp and colorful but one expected them to be just a little better. I understand the marketing reasons for splitting the seasons up but for fans of the show, it isn't a great idea.

Volume 1 is an essential part of your Lost in Space Collection. While it doesn't approach the storytelling strength of Season 1, we do have some of the oddest collection of aliens to ever be seen on the screen.
