Default Any Lost in Space Fans?

Being a passionate fan of Star Trek, I have always loved, I also love Lost in Space. When I was much younger, I was hooked on watching Space family Robinson every Wed night. I had the Robot toy and a model Jupiter 2. I do have the Johnny LIghtning toys of Jupiter 2, the Pod, and of course the Robot. I used to get plastic saucers from my Moms cabinet and glue them together and make a Jupiter 2! (I'm sure I was the only one to ever do that Yes, the episodes have not stood up like Trek has. Yes there was much more cheese, but I still could relate to Will Robinson lost in space!!! Anyone else?

I think the first six episodes or so, back when Dr. Smith was a bloodthirsty saboteur, and they were re-using the footage from the original "No Where To Hide" pilot, are some of the best science fiction TV ever created.

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".

Like most Irwin Allen shows, LIS was lobotomized as the show went on. Started out good, but then went downhill.

Amazing how Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea managed a full season (32 episodes, no less) of good stories before Allen started giving in to network pressure and lowering the quality of episodes.

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.

My wife got me the entire series for my Birthday 2 years ago. I watched a couple of my favorites and put them up. Yesterday, I started a marathon, it is bringing back such great memories! It really takes me back to a time when I was 9 years old and locked in front of the TV every Wed night. I am just on season one for now.

I liked the show and I liked the movie they made a few years ago (for the most part). Surely you heard the rumors of a person that liked it. I was the one. They almost had a good sci-fi flick there.

As far as the movie goes... they did a good job, but they REALLY needed to scale back on that script. Tossing the "lost in space" elements in with time travel just made for one confusing bit of eye candy...

But, any movie that gave us Lacey Chabert can't be all bad...
