I purchased the DVD on-line out of curiosity because I am a big LIS fan. The retrospective of the show didn't present much that I didn't already know. The BIG payoff was Jonathan Harris, Bill Mumy and Bob May reprising their rolls in full costume on a Jupiter II set built for the special. I was amazed at the money that was spent not only on the set but to shoot the sequence on 35mm film. Harris delivered his lines as if the show had never ended. His ability to bring that character back to life so accurately after so long sent a chill up my spine and made me appreciate his acting abilities more than ever. The supplemental material includes extensive behind the scenes coverage of the making of that segment. It was very touching to see Harris and Mumy awkwardly appear on set in their recreated costumes and laugh and reminisce. The raw footage of special effect shots from the original show was good for some chuckles too. Any LIS fan should appreciate this one.
