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

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.Read more ›
I can Hardly wait for season 2 vol. 2 later this month!
This is highly recommended for all Lost in Space fans out there!
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.
However, I fear that this was done to gauge interest in the 2nd season and if sales of the first half don't meet expectations, then they may choose not to produce the 2nd half.
I have no inside info, but I hope that my fears are unfounded. I loved the first season set and will be getting the remainder of the series as soon as it is produced.
