Storyline

An historic day. The Robinsons - John, Maureen, Judy, Penny and Will - become Earth's first family of outer space, on its way, accompanied by pilot Maj. Don West, to colonize a planet circling Alpha Centauri; however, Dr. Smith, as an enemy agent of a foreign power, means to set them on a course of doom by reprogramming the robot to destroy their ship, the Jupiter 2, eight hours in space. The unfortunate doctor winds up caught in his own treachery and hurls off into space with the Robinson party. His excess weight first throws the ship off course, then, with the robot coming to life and bashing all the controls, they all become "hopelessly lost in space." Written by statmanjeff

Trivia

Alpha Centauri, a.k.a. Alpha Centauri AB, is currently classified (as of 2012, at any rate) as a binary star, approximately 4.37 light years from Earth, with its two suns designated as A (the larger) and B (the smaller). Proxima Centauri, a.k.a. Alpha Centauri C, is .2 light years from Alpha Centauri AB. At one seventh the size, its sun is much smaller than ours and not visible to the naked eye, but its distance from Earth is 4.24 light years, making it the closest sun to ours. It was discovered in 1915. See more »

Goofs

The news anchor at the Space Control Center says that probes have looked to other galaxies for suitable planets for colonization, but then says a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri (the star/solar system closest to Earth) is the Robinsons' destination. See more »

Quotes

Maureen Robinson: Dr. Smith, is it possible that certain parts of the body don't reanimate as quickly as others? The heart, for instance?
Dr. Zachary Smith: Mrs. Robinson, I'm afraid the decision no longer rests in your hands or the computer's.
Prof. John Robinson: What do you mean?
Dr. Zachary Smith: Your son...
Maureen Robinson: What about him?
Dr. Zachary Smith: Oh, there's no cause for alarm. Not yet at any rate.
Will Robinson: [Downstairs, addressing Robot] Stop it! Stop it! I order you to stop!
The Robot: [pauses] Negative.

This is the best of the best..10.0..
26 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I just discovered this site and all the feedback and information I can add. I plan to make plenty of comments, reviews, opinions, quotes and such in the months to come. One quick correction from the credits listed above on this site...Byron Morrow and Hoke Howell do NOT obviously appear anywhere during this episode. Don't know what somebody is thinking. I've seen this error before. Byron Morrow and Hoke Howell were guests far away in a Season Three episode entitled, "Time Merchant", which has absolutely nothing to do with this beauty. "The Reluctant Stowaway" is the best the series had to offer. All of classic B&W Season One is one of the very best years in television history. It's all galactic, out of this world adventure. Nothing in the series, or many other series, can approach this greatness. This is my input #1!
