I loved the show as a child.

Hmmm...could be..I did thin Robot was cool, except for the stupid design flaw that put his battery back where everybody could yank it out.

Star Trek and Lost in Space were my favorite shows as a kid. I read SciFi in elementary school when none of my friends would. It's a shame LIS lost its way and turned into The Will and Smith Hour- just too silly. I have the first season and watched most of them, but it certainly doesn't keep my interest. And the movie....I liked it! Non-stop action and cool special effects- not bad.

Star Trek, thankfully, despite having its share of groaner episodes, is still enjoyable.

IA had was trying to compete with the color, flash and campiness of Batman, which was seriously impacting their ratings.

I was one of those who found the movie to be a near-worthy failure. The only things I didn't like about it were the cutsie CGI creature() and Matt Lablanc's Don West. I usually really like Matt but I thought he was miscast in this movie. Everything else I thought was great.

I thought the kid who playecWill was WAY too cutsie, and Willaim Hurt allways sounded like he nothing but distain for playing John Robinson.

When the movie came out, my kids were little and loved the "Blarp", and even had the action figure. So for putting something in for the kids, the Blarp was a smart addition. I myself didn't like it but loved everything else about the movie.

I guess. I just didn't like being blarped upon.
