Did You Know?


Dr. Smith's extreme caution with handling the sculpture made of plastic explosive was unnecessary. Plastic explosives are notoriously stable until the proper detonation is applied. Compounds such as C-4 can be handled, molded, formed, dropped and even exposed to flame and set on fire without exploding. The value of plastic explosives lies in the very fact that it takes a deliberate act of detonation to set them off. See more »

I Keep Having Flashbacks Of The "Climax"
27 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Planet X is taken over by women and the men are the slaves!

The teaser makes an outstanding use of Fox sound effects (you hear the same effect at the start of 1968's Planet Of The Apes when Chuck Heston views his dead space traveller) and Irwin fireworks when things go bang, bang at the start of this hour. Women of this century might struggle with this tale a bit, however if taken the right campy way, The Colonists is an okay bit of very 1960s fun. The Amazon is very cool and when seen in her cave of colourful hardware you get some of the most striking sci-fic images of LIS year two.

When viewed in my 1970s childhood, those early scenes of melting radios and concerned talk from Don West was very chilling, perhaps a little less chilling to a grown adult of this century? But the episode scores a point or two for giving the whole cast a go at it, however Penny is a pain with her "Pick it up" scene with Will Robinson. Don West is very pleasing with his cynical comments towards Smith and Niolani.

I have saved the best to last, for decades, I keep having flashbacks of the climax when the colonist spacecraft finally appears but then veers off and goes backwards, the film footage of the craft goes backwards, when it sees that all is not well on Planet X. I guess it is so brainwashingly memorable because it is such a key moment in the story but filmed in such a simple and cheap way. For decades, whenever I suddenly have second thoughts about going somewhere, I suddenly remember that moment in The Colonists. Don't ask me why?
