Storyline

In the year 1997, Earth is suffering from massive overpopulation. Professor John Robinson, his wife Maureen, their children (Judy, Penny and Will) and Major Don West are selected to go to the third planet in the Alpha Centauri star system to establish a colony so that other Earth people can settle there. They are to go there on a ship christened the Jupiter 2. However, Doctor Zachary Smith, an agent for an enemy government, is sent to sabotage the mission. He is successful in reprogramming the ship's robot, but in the process becomes trapped on the ship, and because of his excess weight, the ship and all on board become hopelessly lost and it now becomes a fight for survival as the crew tries to find their way back home.

User Reviews

One of the best ever TV sci-fi series.
21 February 2002 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Lost in Space is one of the best TV sci-fi series ever made. I saw most of the episodes when the series was repeated on Channel 4 in 1988-1990. Only the first six episodes were released on video in Britain in three volumes and are long deleted. I was lucky to obtain all three recently.

All the stars give excellent performances especially Jonathon Harris who is Dr Smith. The background music is excellent and at times rather creepy. Some of this was by the great Bernard Herrman (The Day the Earth Stood Still, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) which surprised me as I didn't think he composed music for television.

The special effects are very good and some of the monsters are impressive, especially the giant cyclops, (a man in a rubber suit), from the fourth episode (There Were Giants In the Earth). Some of them look rather silly as well!. Special guests to appear over its duration include Michael Rennie (The Day the Earth Stood Still) as the Keeper, which was a two part story. Some of the monsters in this story are stock footage from fellow Irwin Allen production The Lost World (1960).

It would be nice to see another rerun of this series on Channel 4 as I enjoyed it very much.

Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
