In this episode, Will, Dr. Smith, and the Robot come across a statue of the Robot that has been erected some 300 years in the future. The statue is dedicated to a "Cybernetic Hero". The Robot starts singing, "I'm a Cybernetic Hero" to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad". Dr. Smith responds with one of his many insults to the Robot by calling him a "Cybernetic Simpleton". Written by lobby_4_u@hotmail.com

Okay Flight Into...Stock Footage
1 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

The budget was cut on this flight, that is rather obvious when we see stock footage from year two's Wild Adventure (the sun), stock footage from year one's Island In The Sky (the Jupiter 2 crash), stock footage from year one's Giants In The Earth (the cyclops now in colour), I think I saw the rock monsters from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea's The Fossil Men, and a parade of alien props seen in any number of LIS and Voyage/Sea episodes. No new music was created for this hour, it was all used before. Does this sound like a bomb? Well, yes, it sounds like one, but hey, at least it is often played straight (unlike year two) and some male viewers can lust over a more featured Judy Robinson.

This hour is not so much a quality time travel hour (Oh well) but rather a mix of things seen and heard in other sci-fic TV hours of the 1960s. Attention Star Trek fans! The alien voice artist for many 1960s Trek hours, such as The Guardian for City On The Edge Of Forever, lends his deep tones for an alien machine in Flight Into The Future. And he sounds identical to how he sounds in Star Trek. It must of been confusing for this artist to remember which space series he was on? On a low-budget stock-this and stock-that level, this hour is a bit like the coming soon Target Earth episode. Both Flight Into The Future and Target Earth could be viewed as poor, but if you forget the obvious, too obvious, budget problems, you will have a year three ball with them.

Added note: The 1998 LIS movie got ideas from this hour.
