Condemned of Space sees the Robinsons back in space after being grounded on the planet, and it is great to see the Jupiter II ship lift off again. Smith gets up to no good immediately and jettisons Robot out when he pushes the wrong button. Then the saucer encounters a convict space station.
Visit to a Hostile Planet sees the crew in another time zone in 1947 and they are mistaken as hostile aliens. The episode is one of the biggest for Judy who is the central focus, though Smith as a dictator leader needs to be mentioned.
Kidnapped In Space sees Smith given the death sentence by a leader computer.
Space Primevals has a volcano planet where the heroes are captured by a tribe of cavemen, ruled by a computer and Smith and West are sentenced to death. The episode is annoyingly coy bringing Smith and West together who hate each other but make up when they are forced together, and it features Robot mimicking a caveman dance which is unwatchable.
Space Destructors has Smith encountering a machine that makes cyborgs, prompting him to create his own personal army to conquer the galaxy.
The Haunted Lighthouse is another Penny episode similar to Season One with her imaginary friend, this time she finds a castaway boy with strange mind altering powers. The lighthouse comes later and the episode goes into meltdown.
Flight Into the Future is a Will and Smith episode as they are convinced they have transported into the future.
Collision of Planets speaks for itself as 2 planets are on the verge of collision. Then we have some 60s hippies intervening and the show goes downhill.
Space Creature features evil mist capturing Jupiter II that feeds on fear.
Deadliest of the Species has an escapee female robot from a prison and the Robinson's Robot falls in love with her.
A Day at the Zoo has a zookeeper capturing the Robinsons to put on exhibit.
Castles in Space has the Robinson's encountering a frozen alien sarcophagus, who is actually a dropdead gorgeous princess from an ice planet. It gets complicated when a prince pursues her.
So you can see from these episodes alone how the show attempted to branch out into different genres and it got goofier with each story. This is part of the charm of the show and made it infamous over the years. The colour is very psychedelic at times and is a great representation of 60s television. It is mt fave season of the show for all these reasons and even the annoying episodes are a great source of camp comedy much like the 60s Batman TV show. Recommended for all television and sci fi buffs.
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.
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.
The reason it looks somewhat better on a TV versus a PC is that a PC's higher resolution reveals more of the tranfer flaws than a DVD player/TV combination will.
I do note that different companies have been used to master the releases of Voyage, Time Tunnel, and Land of the Giants than the one that did LIS.
