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.

So much potential, so much wasted time
26 February 2009 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I figure that I must have seen Lost In Space the first time it was re-run in the 70's on Australian television (Channel 10 from memory) and as a kid, it was definitely a show that captured the imagination.

Nearly 40 years later, I don't see that greatness. All I see now is a group of actors who probably should have read their contracts a little more closely because somewhere in the fine print it must have said that by the 3rd season, your credibility as an actor won't exist any more.

The first few episodes of LIS had similar potential to that of Star Trek. What let it down was very poor scripts. Johnathon Harris as Dr Smith turning from an almost plausible villainous character to overacting coward didn't help much either.

If someone could watch the better episodes that made sense and write an entire new series with those as the core, it could easily become the launching pad for an entire new show like The Next Generation did with Star Trek.

I shouldn't be cringing in embarrassment for actors in a show that stopped being made 2 years after I was born.
