My Vote for Best Episode
7 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

I loved "Lost in Space" back in the mid-1960s. Today, I find the second season's episodes to be frustrating at times, because so many of the story lines make very little sense. "The Toymaker" and "The Questing Beast" are almost incomprehensible to me. Most shows involved Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) putting everyone in danger through greedy, careless, or cowardly behavior, with John Robinson (Guy Williams) and Will Robinson (Bill Mumy) saving the day.

My favorite episode out of all three years was "Trip Through the Robot" from Year 2. The Robot ventures into the Valley of Shadows to die, because he is very low on power. Will and Smith find him, grown to monstrous size! The two enter the now-huge robot and make some adjustments to start the Robot's "heart" again in order to shrink him, and must run for their lives before they are trapped inside.

Although this episode had the usual sappy upbeat ending, it stands out due to the great storyline, interesting use of sets, and Dr. Smith's unusual good-guy role. Harris and Mumy are great as always, while Williams overacts in his usual way. Good TV show for those wishing for a little 1960s sci-fi nostalgia.
