The last Irwin Allen series produced.....
1 March 2001 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

During the height of the early 1970's,producer Irwin Allen scored two brilliant disaster epics like "The Poseidon Adventure"(1972),and "The Towering Inferno"(1974) which were huge runaway hits at the box office and Oscar winners. Since Allen was known for his TV shows of the 1960's he decided to come back to that terrain for the last time around. This show features a modern day family that is stranded on a island with nothing but their wits to stay alive. This show was on the same level as his other family adventure series "Lost In Space",but in this one the family faces off with deadly animals,mysterious cannibals,and dangerous pirates all in a modern day setting and this is not out in the far reaches of outer space,but in the far reaches of an deserted but deadly paradise. I had a chance to see this lost series on a sci-fi channel one evening,and it was highly enjoyable in some parts,but incredibly pathetic in others since when it was on the air,it only lasted one season(from September of 1975 to January of 1976). Look for a very young Helen Hunt(TV's Mad About You)as the Robinson's teenage daughter. Since Martin Milner(Officer Malloy from "Adam-12")was the star of the show,I wonder what he is doing now?

NOTE: This show was on Sunday evenings(where Allen once had his "Voyage" and "Land of the Giants" series on the same time slot at 7:00)on ABC,and in a blink of an eye,it was yanked right off the air by the competition "60 Minutes" in that cold winter of 76.
