Voyage/Sea Writer & Voyage/Sea Sheet Monster Jump Ship To LIS
22 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Jupiter 2 is in deep space when members of the Robinson family slowly start to vanish. A deep voiced alien (Ron Gans) starts to talk to Smith.

This would have to be the most Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea-ish episode of LIS. Writer William Welch had scripted a small number of straight faced year one LIS episodes but Welch was more at home with Irwin's other less comical TV shows. Space Creature is the one and only colour LIS episode that Welch scripted, giving the hour a special identity in the 83 episode run of LIS. Something or someone else jumps ship from Voyage to LIS - A Sheet Monster! Before Space Creature, in the 1966-67 season of Voyage, came Shadowman (Admiral Nelson named him this), an actor dressed in a black sheet and voiced by Jim Mills.

However, in Shadowman the sheet did not look like a sheet due to clever lighting on the set and the simple fact that black is black. The Space Creature is a WHITE sheet monster and the sheet looks like a sheet! Help! This minor problem does damage to the episode as does Will Robinson's now painful tone of voice when he talks to Jonathan Harris. It is evil Jonathan Harris in act four, Guy Williams and alien voice artist Ron Gans that hold the viewer. Also the William Welch quirks...

Welch probably viewed the Jupiter 2 as the Seaview in space and the space pod as the flying sub in space. In the teaser we see John and Don frozen in time and Welch did this to many characters in many episodes of non-LIS Irwin TV. As for act four when Smith hunts down Will in an empty Jupiter 2, this kind of thing often happened in an almost empty Seaview. But I must reluctantly admit that Space Creature did the manhunt-thing better than Voyage...we can thank Jonathan Harris and Ron Gans for that. All in all, despite a white sheet and sometimes painful Will Robinson, this hour is very cool.
