In the year 1997, Earth is suffering from massive overpopulation. Professor John Robinson, his wife Maureen, their children (Judy, Penny and Will) and Major Don West are selected to go to the third planet in the Alpha Centauri star system to establish a colony so that other Earth people can settle there. They are to go there on a ship christened the Jupiter 2. However, Doctor Zachary Smith, an agent for an enemy government, is sent to sabotage the mission. He is successful in reprogramming the ship's robot, but in the process becomes trapped on the ship, and because of his excess weight, the ship and all on board become hopelessly lost and it now becomes a fight for survival as the crew tries to find their way back home.Written by

The Robot is mounted on tracks. Yet in close-ups when it moves with a normal walking action and it is possible to see the actors legs move in the lower parts of the suit. See more »
Starting in 1992, the Sci-Fi Channel aired prints that deleted the "TO BE CONTINUED..." lettering from the cliffhanger freeze frames at the end of the season 1 and season 2 episodes. These prints also had numerous cuts within the episodes. See more »
This cult classic will always remain a world show! With its exceptional Sets & Vehicles!-The Jupiter II , Chariot & Space Pod. Lines said like "You Traitor!" will always remain fun for the globe to enjoy -said by the nefarious , Loveable villain Dr. Zachary Smith. I would strongly recommend buying a 3rd season episode -watch it and see if you like it. I wish there was a TV show like "LIS" around today. It means alot to many people around the world
