Just Good Solid Adventure
25 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

On a new alien planet, John Robinson is hunted down by an alien.

Just about every 1960s adventure series did the "manhunt" storyline seen here: even Get Smart did it once. Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea did an outstanding B&W take on the theme called: The Enemies. Voyage got David Hedison/Malachi Throne hunting down Richard Basehart on an island.

Vincent Beck, who plays the alien trouble maker in Hunter's Moon, also played an alien - in voice only - in the final 1967 episode of Irwin Allen's The Time Tunnel. Hunter's Moon is beginning to sound a bit un-original but the hour is actually a knockout.

Guy Williams (John Robinson) really gets a chance to shine here, act four has some outdoor filming for once, and we get a classic Jupiter 2 crash landing done with John Williams music going on all thrusters!

With the exception of a silly scene in act two, Hunter's Moon is played straight.

This is just good solid adventure...the way I like Lost In Space to be. As for actor Vincent Beck, this is without question his best hour on the screen.
