Well, the previous set was good enough so I decided to get this one too. After all, it's got "The Great Vegetable Rebellion".

I'll start with DVD quality:

Menu system: Uninspired but passable; what else is new?

Video: Given that the show is released for a niche audience these days, there are some scratches, blemishes, unrestored trailers, dust marks, film jumps, just like in the previous releases. It's overall acceptable and I've seen far worse for TV shows that were far more popular and beloved that cannot be blamed on the quality of the master analogue tapes. Still, more care into the restoration work would have been nice. I do hate film jumps and, quite frankly, this stuff - like all tv and media - should be preserved as a reflection of society at the time... it might be dated and somewhat sexist, but at least the Robinsons prove their moral superiority (and possibly stupidity) by rescuing Doctor Smith from himself every week... And you know Smith wouldn't be tolerated for one attosecond these days!

Audio: Great in mono, nothing to complain about here. Very passable!

As for the episodes themselves:

Target: Earth -- I loved the pre-credits teaser, even if the alien itself looks fairly disgusting (I wish I could cite a parallel, but I'm not keen on toilet humor...). While "Lost in Space" is typically pedestrian with its plotlines and a lot of its dialogue, I found this one to be surprisingly fun. Even Will (think "the original Wesley Crusher but isn't arrogant" ) is well handled. 7/10

Princess of Space -- a typical outing despite having a decent premise. It's not what I'd call innovative or adventurous, however. 5/10

Time Merchant - WOW!!!!

This is the last of the series. Over the course of its three seasons it degenerated from a semi-serious science fiction show into a comic farce. It worked. The show was so silly that it could not be taken seriously but it could be taken with lots of fun. The main reason for this is Jonathan Harris playing Zachary Smith. The comic evil villain was always good for a few laughs.

Synopses for the episodes appear below:

Target Earth - This one is less campy and more in the vein of regular science fiction than most, but that's not saying much. As usual, Smith sets the trouble in motion when he accidentally jettisons the pod with part of the robot aboard. The pod lands on a planet and the crew of the Jupiter II head down to retrieve their belongings. That, of course, causes more trouble. The aliens on this particular planet are all identical and are intrigued by the differences between the humans. They are an old race failing because of their lack of diversity. That is the given reason but I think it has more to do with looking like a heap of mud. The aliens come up with a plan to "replicate" the Jupiter II crew and conquer earth.

Princess of Space - It's been a while since I have viewed the previous set but I think this episode sets a new standard for silliness. It's basically the Anastasia story without the Russians, pomp or grandeur. In its place, we get spaceships decked out with a model of the Cutty Sark, air funnels from early steam ships, navigating lanterns (on the inside) and an army of advanced computers which resemble filing cabinets with arms. The cutlass in the hands of the captain is a nice touch also. Basically, the aliens are looking for a lost princess hidden on Earth. They grab Penny instead and try to pass her off to the royal auntie.

Season 3 Volume 2 shows the end of a great series. In my opinion, some of the worst episodes were in the mid 2nd and mid 3rd season, though many believe "The Great Vegetable Rebellion" of this set to be the worst. It may be but it can still be a fun watch over say, "Space Vikings" of the 2nd season. The end of this series follows an interesting route.

The end of the Lost in Space series is definitely schizophrenic. This volume starts out with the excellent "Target: Earth" where a group of uniform creatures want to learn to be individuals. Then we lurch over to "Princess of Space" where Penny is mistaken for a look-alike princess and computers with toupees march in battle. "The Time Merchant" was a great balance of fantasy and a great sci-fi story. "The Flaming Planet" had a decent story but the subplot about the radioactive plant was enough to curdle lunch milk a million miles away. "Fugitives in Space" was a different episode that actually felt fresh, despite the weird court they had. Enough has been said about the "Talking Carrot", so we won't even go there. And because of "bad behavior" from the filming of that episode, we rarely see Guy Williams or June Lockheart in this volume. Heck, even Judy is given a swan song in "Space Beauty."

I do have to take time out to mention "The Promised Planet". It is far from the best ever but it is one of my favorites mainly due to the absurdity of it all. Here, we feature a possible arrival to Alpha Control, which is actually kind of exciting to hear. Then we see where we are going, into a "Space-a-Delic" trance. We have the scary and horrific "Penny Dance", to Smith in a wig and lighting incense cones to the weird eye shaped signs on the doors.
