Good set design, some good acting, too much camp
2 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its a good episode of sci fi TV in general, and probably a great episode as compared to the rest of Lost in Space. Though the topic probably already seemed derivative by the time this aired (Star Trek had already aired similarly themed episodes) they still managed to deal with this in an interesting way with cool set design (when I think "Lost in Space" I always think of the "transdimensional walkway"). Though the acting in this episode is often praised, I find it still somewhat too simplistic. If the campiness had been toned down a bit (for instance, why is the robot expressing that he is afraid so often?) I think this would have turned a good sci fi episode into a great one. Though I never expect much scientific accuracy in these shows, I think having the dimensional gateway be just a door with fire surrounding it is a little silly, even for Lost In Space.

However, I still find it to be an iconic LIS episode, and in 40+ years, it still is enjoyable.
