In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Lost in Space Forever is a long overdue tribute to a TV program that rarely gets a fair shake. Let us not forget that LIS was canceled with higher ratings than Star Trek ever got in prime time. This is a fan's tribute to the cast and phenomena that was Lost in Space - papier mache´ caves, saran wrap forcefields, talking dragons and all.
While Trek embraced technology and used it to overcome obstacles, the Space Family Robinson was a contemporary family, overcoming threats with family bonds, trust, affection and a pet robot.
With Jonathan Harris and Bill Mumy back in costume, and Bob May back in the robot, it is a loving remembrance of the idealized American family that every child wanted, and by association, had via the program.
