Season 3 of Lost in Space had a very ambitious start. You could feel the excitement of the new direction the show tried early in this season. From the exciting and grand new theme to actually going into space more often, Season 3 did start out very well. However, the lazy writing to "comedic villain" of the week started to creep up by the middle of this volume.

Season 3, Volume 1 features some of the best episodes of the third season and a few approach the best or at least the most ambitious of the entire series. We start out with the action packed "Condemned of Space" where we see the Robinson's lift off, dodge a comet, loose the Robot in Space and come across a frozen prison. We move on to "A Visit to a Hostile Planet" where we feature one of the best of the series (though logic is out the window) where our crew returns to Earth of the Past. We take a trip to a comical yet original premise in "Kidnapped in Space" and then the traditional "crash" in Hunter's moon. And even when stuck on a planet for a while, they to attempt new fresh ideas, most notably some bonding between Don and Smith in "Space Primevals." And bad creature effects aside, "Space Creature" gave us one of the deepest Lost in Space episodes to date.

Near the end of this volume, it would seem that the writers milked all they could out of the return to action and adventure and had to settle back to farcical fantasy and the results not very good. We get three episodes in a row that pretty much sign the death certificate of the entire series. "A Day at the Zoo" puts the Robinsons in a traveling Zoo. "Two Weeks in Space" features the Jupiter 2 as a resort for fugitive aliens, complete with a cash register and badminton equipment.

What can you say about a DVD set in which the FBI, Copyright warning, and menu screens are the best looking things? All the episodes appear blurry, as if someone tried to digitally enhance, and failed. The coming attractions are the best looking part. I've seen VHS copies that look better. This show deserves better. Fox should recall and reissue correctly.A real disappointment!

CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!

LOST IN SPACE was a silly series. Of that there can be no doubt. It was, however, quite fun. Jonathan Harris, playing Dr. Zachary Smith, stole the show as a cowardly, greedy, lazy and incompetent stow away. He was always causing problems and good for a few laughs.

The series changed over the course of 3 seasons. It started out as a fairly serious science fiction series. By the second season, it had become nothing more than a campy comedy. The third season saw a reversion back towards the serious end of the spectrum but only just barely. The plots were, by a large, a bit more believeable but there was no doubt that this was as much comedy as drama. The cast did not take themselves too seriously and that contributed to the fun.

The series was noted for laughable costumes and special effects which used a bang, flash of smoke and disappearance/reappearance to solve any effects situation. What the series lacked in seriousness, costume, plot, and effects, it made up for with good humor and some of the richest color to appear on television at that time. It comes through well on the DVDs.

The episodes in this collection include:

One of the things I like about this particular collection is the music. The theme was different each season had had nothing to commend it until the third. For some reason, this theme song struck a chord in me as a young boy and I still like it. It is not great but, to me, it is memorable. Like the series itself, it is not to be taken seriously it is to be simply enjoyed for fun.

Condemned of Space - The Robinsons and crew are finally back in space again. They had no choice since the planet they had been stranded on was targeted by a rogue comet. As to be expected, they barely made it.

As an avid fan of LIS from day one, I enjoyed all three seasons

of the show. I agree with another reviewer of season #2 that it

was fun and interesting, not stupid as some claimed. However, for

those with a negative impression of the show based on what they saw of season #2 or what they've heard, watch season #3. Irwin Allen decided on a more serious treatment for #3 which was more in the spirit of season #1. The result was at least three of the

best episodes of the series: "Visit to a Hostile Planet", in which the Robinsons were propelled through a time warp to Earth

of 1947, fifty years before their voyage started; "Condemned of Space" in which the Jupiter 2 lands on a prison ship, and "The Anti-Matter Man" featuring awesome performances by Mark Goddard and especially Guy Williams portraying their anti-matter selves.

True, this season did contain the infamous "The Great Vegetable

Rebellion" with a talking man-carrot, but stupid though it may seem, my advice is JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT!

Buy this season and enjoy!

I've looked forward to having LIS on DVD for quite some time. I had hoped that Kevin Burns and 20th Century Fox would stop milking the franchise and perhaps make the effort to invest a little bit back into it after all these years. But, alas, I was wrong.

The transfer of the 3rd season episodes is weak, to say the least. The episodes are soft, fuzzy, and lacking detail. They are looking old and tired, much worse than the first season, which wasn't so good either. Only the 2nd season episodes come close to looking decent on DVD.

I was really looking forward to the 3rd season on DVD because many of the stories were quite good. But the weak transfers takes much of the joy out of it.

Normally I wouldn't recommend a purchase under these conditions, but since it is unlikely we'll ever see the money invested to do good, digitally remastered transfers from the original negatives of this series you might as well buy it now. But it pains me to reward Kevin Burns (the license holder for the LIS franchise, so he does have input into these releases) and 20th Century Fox for the cheap corner cutting of these DVD sets. The series deserved better.

[Edit]

Seeing another post here about this DVD set looking better played on DVD player and TV, I popped this set into my Denon DVD player and viewed the episodes on my 36" Sony XBR.

I haven't changed my opinion one bit. The transfer still looks weak and blurry, lacking resolution. They look as if they were mastered from 16mm instead of 35mm material. I'm not sure what they used as a source for the mastering of these episodes, but it is obvious that there was no quality control done.
