Sure. They could have worked a bit harder on the science aspect, but the show (back in it's early B&W days) has some wonderful mood. The music, by Johnny (John) Williams, still thrills me down to my toes!
Too bad it slipped into being outright kiddie fare shortly thereafter. I think there are only 2 episodes that I really cared for, after it went to color... that being the "Antimatter Man" and "Visit to a Hostile Planet".
YOu are right, the first few epis are the best. I just watched the No Where to Hide, pilot, and it was great. I loved the epi where they get to earth 50 years in the past. I think thats my favorite. It did get a bit corny and cheesey after a bit.
