Probably as "serious" as the show could get following the campy 2nd season
14 August 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

When "Lost in Space" tried to revert back to a more "dramatic" tone in the third season following the over-the-top antics of season 2, the writers came up with a show that had a true split personality. "Target: Earth" is one of those installments that, for the most part, took itself seriously.

Plot-wise, the members of the Jupiter Two find themselves among an alien race that is seeking to break away from its "uniformity" by donning the appearance and characteristics of the Robinsons, Major West, and Dr. Smith. Some interesting plot developments arise and there are some witty-for-Lost-in-Space exchanges between Will (Billy Mumy) and the head alien (Jim Gosa) as well as between the alien versions of John (Guy Williams) and Don (Mark Goddard).

Like always, the show makes effective use of John Williams' stock music score from season one.

Even Jonathan Harris's "Dr. Smith" is kept a little under wraps, not "hogging" all of the screen time.
