A Brief, yet Concise History of Lost in Space
24 July 2008 | by BaronBl00dSee all my reviews

John Larroquette with the help of the Robot details in a rather cursory fashion the history of the television show Lost in Space, its evolution over its three year run, its popularity afterwards, and, of course, the main reason for the special a tie-in with old to the then new Lost in Space film coming out. We are given an inside look to things like a Guy Williams screen test, very, very brief interviews with the Lost in Space cast, a look at a cartoon of the show I had never seen, and finally a major treat with Bill Mumy and Jonathan Harris reprising their roles more than 30 years later. The skit is easily the highlight of this DVD as Harris is dead on again as Dr. Smith with his alliterative put-downs, his cowardly looks, and his general character briefly yet succinctly in tact. Mumy does a decent job doing what he did so many years ago and so much younger. I thoroughly enjoyed this love letter to the show, understand why it was made(to promote the new movie), and look forward to re-watching more Lost in Space for many more years to come. It was not the greatest science fiction show of all-time to be sure. It does not have the philosophic foundation of Star Trek(a much better written show or the depth of character of others either). Its first season is outstanding science fiction, and even though I much prefer that season to what the show became, the other two seasons were always fun - and that is a testament to the general quality of what was being produced, and the relationship between Will Robinson and Dr. Zachary Smith and Robot. Seeing the three of them again rekindled some nice memories of sitting down in front of that old floor console watching their misadventures.
