Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As its second season progressed, and as these 14 episodes from 1967 attest, Lost in Space continued to swap science fiction for comic fantasy, and the show's ratings went into orbit. While Star Trek satisfied a smaller audience of serious sci-fi fans on NBC, Lost in Space (airing Wednesday nights on CBS) delighted a younger audience with the cheesy adventures of "Space Family Robinson," stranded on an isolated planet that nevertheless played host to an abundance of alien visitors. Here they include operatic Vikings, a disembodied mechanical head, a spacefaring buccaneer, a Scottish bagpiper in a haunted castle, and, in the deliriously entertaining episode "Revolt of the Androids," a silver-painted super-being whose primary purpose is to "Crush...Kill...Destroy!!" It's all harmless family fun, offering equal amounts of tongue-in-cheek whimsy and some scary highlights that kids, then and now, will find instantly unforgettable.

Yes, it all looks quaint and innocent by present-day standards, and it's painfully obvious that series creator Irwin Allen didn't know what to do with the Robinson clan, a wooden variant of Ozzie & Harriett in V-necked velour, with June Lockhart playing happy homemaker while patriarch Guy Williams spent most of his time repairing damaged equipment. It's just as well, since season 2 is dominated by the scene-stealing duo of Dr. Smith (played by Jonathan Harris in the role he was born to play) and the sarcastic Robot B-9, who plays a scolding R2D2 to Harris's duplicitous, flamboyantly feckless C3PO, the latter delivering alliterative insults (like "you ingot of ingratitude!" and "you nickel-plated nincompoop!") in virtually every episode. Guest stars like Albert Salmi, Al "Grandpa Munster" Lewis, and John Carradine are in on the game, adding weekly flavor to a series that shares much in common with such later kid-stuff as H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Lost. Some may find it hopelessly ridiculous in retrospect, but Lost in Space still offers fun aplenty for those who enjoy its anything-goes approach to low-budget fantasy for the young and young-at-heart. Unfortunately for devoted fans, vintage 1966 radio interviews with Lockhart, Williams, and Harris are the only extras in this well-mastered four-disc set. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

Wonderful memories from childhood viewing these great old shows!
Chris Dawson
Many people need to realize that what they regard as the utter stupidity of this show is actually the entire fun of the show.
Spike
A great addition to any collector's library of Irwin Allen Productions.

LOST IN SPACE began as a serious attempt at an exciting science fiction TV program. It was starting to degenerate into something quite different by the end of the first season and in the second season, the change was full blown. No longer was it a serious show. Indeed it was quite silly. "Campy" is the most common description.

The change in format resulted in changed characters. Dr. Smith started out as a sinister but intelligent villain but is nothing like that in the second season. In fact, he has become the star of the show. He is venal, selfish and not very smart but he is lots of fun to laugh at. Will is the other star of the show. He was always depicted as exceedingly intelligent but he seems to have a soft spot for Smith and the Robot, the third of the first tier stars. The rest of the group are little more than background characters. Penny has a few prominent roles but Judy might as well not be there. Sometimes she utters less that a dozen words in the course of an episode.

All of these stories are exceedingly silly and the "science" aspect is truly laughable. Pseudo scientific terms abound and are quite meaningless. All science fiction requires the suspension of disbelief but this series requires something more. It requires disbelief to be locked away safely where it has not the slightest possibility of intruding. In spite of this, the series works. It works because it does not take itself seriously. It is all done in fun and no one, even a child, could take any of it seriously. This is true in terms of story, special effects and, especially, aliens. Mostly, it is a vehicle to let Smith be a pain in the backside.

Volume 2 of Lost in Space, Season 2 features some of the strangest and worst episodes of the entire series. The series was in full fantasy / adventure mode and most of this volume showcases this. Even with that said, there is a lot to like here.

This volume opens with 4 stinkers yet in their own way, they are charming. From "The Questing Beat" through "The Space Vikings", we are treated to space fantasy at its most absurd. There is absolutely no real danger in these episodes and though they can be enjoyed for their own merit, you have to wonder how the series made it for a 3rd season.

The rest of this volume is a mixed bag but we do have some highlights. "Rocket to Earth" is yet another close call in getting back to Earth with the always fun Al Lewis. "The Cave of The Wizards" features some genuine emotion from Smith toward his feelings for the Robinsons and a teaser about a possible lift off from the planet. And two great Robot episodes, "Trip Through the Robot" and "The Mechanical Men".

Despite some of the worst episodes of the series, Season 2 did continue to strengthen the bond between Will, Smith and the Robot, one of the best trios next to Kirk, Spock and Bones. With the aforementioned "Cave of the Wizards", we see that Smith was really more of a father figure to William at times more then his Dad. As a result, Judy and Maureen took a far back seat to everyone else with Penny being a distant third.

Lost in Space Season 2, Volume 2 is the weakest of the two volume set. And despite the weaker or duller stories, in the right mind, they were still a lot of run to watch. It is a worthy edition and not just for completists.

the reason to watch this series is for Dr. Smith. the second half of season two has much better plots and less of the cheezy monsters that mar the first half of the season. Dr. Smith becomes more sypathetic to the crew, ecspecially the Robot and Will Robinson. the highlights are seeing the Robot in a dress and Smith always complaining about his back. plus the second green girl episode where she is saying "handsome pretty handsome Dr. Smith"

"Lost in Space" is my all time favorite show and I am absolutely thrilled to own the entire second season on dvd. Vol. 2 is just as good as if not better than volume 1. My favorite seasin 2 episodes are in this set as well. "Rocket to Earth" with guest star Al Lewis, "Cave of the Wizards", and "Trip through the Robot" just to name a few.

The color looks great and there is also the lead in third season trailer at the end of "The Galaxy Gift".

I can hardly wait for season three volume one coming out in 2005! Thank you 20th Century Fox for putting these out on dvd. They look great!

I was a very huge fan of this series growing up as a kid...and

still am. Even though this collection of episodes are probably

the worst of the entire series run, I felt obligated to add them

so that after season 3 is released I will have the entire saga

to watch whenever I please. My displeasure of this collection

falls more on the bonus features, which according to the box

are "Rare 1966 interviews with original cast members, June

Lockhart, Guy Williams and Jonathan Harris". What a big

disappointment to find out that these are RADIO interviews.

So while you listen to a very short and boring interview, you view a slide show of stills from the series....and stills any

fan of the show has seen thousands of times. I found this all

to be very misleading. Shame on you FOX!!!! I would love to see

bonus material such as bloopers or home movies shoy on the set

in future volumes. Even a Bill Mumy comentary would be nice.
