My main point is the packaging. My goodness!! We're not in the 20th century anymore! Surely by now, we've learned that people don't like to touch the playing surface of an investment. Why, oh why then, on a BluRay to boot, is this horrid packaging allowed? You are FORCED to touch the playing surface. There is no other way to get the discs out short of cutting the cardboard holders. What are you thinking people?? For a $100+, you could use a better holder than that!
P.S. I have a 23-disc BluRay James Bond movie collection boxed set, for $20 less, and it has individual plastic hub-mounted holders.
Considering the show is 50 years old, and the transfers were from interpositives or CRI color internegatives made by Deluxe at the time the show was aired, the color is outstanding. (I used to work at Fox, and we used to call it "Pink by Deluxe" because Deluxe color ALWAYS faded to pink after a few years. They had to do huge restoration on STAR WARS because the negative was fading!) So to see the colors on Lost In Space, especially the pastel uniforms, is another delight. I never remember such a wild and bold color palate before, and it was truly trend-making at the time. These transfers truly do justice to the color plotting of the show. LIS went to the bold colors due to the success of another Fox show, BATMAN, and it was sort of a game of one-upmanship in the color department.
In all, KUDOS to all involved in this project. They really did their research and dug up a ton of material. The only thing they missed (which I have heard!) is a stereo alternate version of the season 1 main title. But literally, that's about it.
Another wonderful addition are the original rushes from the Lydecker Effects Unit. Many of the first season effects shots were actually shot in color, and to see the camera slates (and realize that the Jupiter 2 shots were shot anywhere from 80 to 160 frames per second (sound speed is 24 frames per second) lets you know some of the tricks involved--including shooting sideways! It's remarkable that so much was done "in camera" and the results--especially the Jupiter 2 crash--have become iconic. And now you can see the wires--not that that is a fault, but it just shows how incredibly GOOD these guys were at doing effects quickly and efficiently.
My only complaint is the packaging. Something more than corn-flake box packaging would be better.
Another great thing is the cast's commentaries on some of the episodes. They point out things that were happening during the filming and remember things that they even forgot about.
I haven't finished watching the episodes yet, nor have I finished with all of the extras, but so far, it is all pretty impressive!
Any Negatives? Well, like most other reviews, the packaging is ok. The graphics and extras are fine, but it is difficult to handle the Blu Ray discs. They are really tightly fitted into their cardboard slots. I had to get my daughter to remove them. All I did was buy some DVD cases and put all of the discs in them so they won't get scratched. Also, I was really hoping that the team would have picked maybe one episode from the 1st season and colorize it as an extra feature. "Wish Upon a Star", "The Sky is Falling" or "War of the Robots" would have been great. Sure would be interesting to see what those 1st season uniforms would look like in color, and even the planet set too.
Even if you are just a casual fan, this is a must own package. All of the efforts and intensions are genuine and it shows, right down to the menus on all of the discs. After years of waiting, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
