TV Shows - Lost in Space

Lost in Space is a science fiction TV series created and produced by Irwin Allen, produced by 20th Century Fox Television, and broadcast on CBS. The show ran for three seasons, with 83 episodes airing between 1965 and March 6, 1968. The first season was shot with black and white film, the rest in color. In 1998, a film based on the series was released. The show focused primarily on Jonathan Harris as Dr. Zachary Smith, whose cowardly character provides comic relief of the show, (and causes most of the problems).

1 The show boned when it became the Will; Dr. Smith and Robot Show. Enough said! -- Submitted By: (Pete) on May 14, 2013, 8:14 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 To Parker Tillman - No, that actually added unexpected character depth to Dr. Smith. Like the movie (which sucked)- The only really good part of that movie was when Dr. Smith misdirected Will - so that he wouldn't see the grave sites of his parents... -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on August 8, 2012, 8:16 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 If you view the "Time Merchant" episode, apparently Smith's excess weight on the Jupiter 2 prevented it from being destroyed by an asteroid, so his sabotage actually backfired and saved all their lives even though he got them lost in space. Knowing this, he has the chance to do it over again, avoid stowing away, save himself and let them die, but decides he can't let that happen and stows away all over again. Maybe it boned then, but that was Smith's "redemption". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 21, 2012, 11:32 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I thought that it was really odd how they changed the Dr. Smith character. But I guess they couldn't keep him as a dangerous/murderous saboteur. The only thing about the movie was his compassion for Will (for example, not letting him see the graves of his parents). I think if they had developed that aspect of the Dr. Smith character more in the TV series, it would have given a lot more depth to the show. Still interesting, though. I particularly liked the episode where they encountered a "hillbilly" family consisting of supernatural characters (werewolf, witch, etc) -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 20, 2012, 1:31 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 As it was was with Batman, LOST IN SPACE was on penny pinching mold and despite the new theme song, that some site as boning, the financial aspect change of the course of the show: It resulted in the Jupiter II going from one planet to another and a curtailed amount of campsite scenes to probably cut costs. But the show really boned with the episode when the Robinsons retuning to earth...when World War II was just 2 years in the past thanks to a time warp in which their spaceship was caught in. -- Submitted By: (JamesGillespie) on February 4, 2012, 4:43 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 tsbrownie, Truth be told that ep was TYPICAL rather than an anomaly. Although, I looked it up and found out that the head 'biker' was none other than Daniel J. Travanti[ Lt. Frank Furillo on "Hill Street Blues"].On a positive note, I also discovered that Mark Goddard quit acting a few years back to further his education and currently teaches special education. Good for him. c Too many actors go to obscurity and whine about no longer being contenders but do little if anything to help those in true need. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:49 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 S3E09 Collision of Planets: they have to fight off an interstellar motorcycle gang that has been sent to blow up the planet. Dr. Smith becomes a curly headed muscle man. BTF -- Submitted By: (tsbrownie) on May 28, 2011, 8:38 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I got rather tired of Dr. Smith and wouldn't have been surprised if the 'Special Guest Star' credit for Jonathan Harris may have to stoke viewers' hopes that maybe THIS episode would be the LAST one with Dr. Smith! Oh, and I think they DID have the potential for developing more interesting characters from the rest of the cast. I always thought that Major West and Judy Robinson were a hot couple! Moreover, I liked Don West the best of the other characters because he was the only one who didn't pretend to like Dr. Smith and would have GLADLY exiled him to a nearby astroid but, alas, always got overruled by the others. Now, if only Will Robinson had had the powers of Bill Mumy's previous role of the evil child Anthony on "Twilight Zone" and used them to send Dr. Smith to the cornfield! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 12, 2011, 10:50 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
10 My bad on the misread, Soggy. Thanks for the catch. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 12, 2011, 7:56 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 One character yes (as long as the villain doesn't win). It works the same way in sports. *Every* character a villain? Now you've gone too far the other way. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 11, 2011, 5:09 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 True enough. But Irwin Allen saw the wisdom in having one main character who was a jerk. (He used the same formula with Land of the Giants.) It's a handy device that creates more opportunities for conflict. It also allows for a little tension between characters, of the sort that several good series employed. (Spock vs McCoy, Festus vs Doc, Magnum vs Higgins....) And frankly, Smith was the most interesting character on the show; the rest were pretty colorless. (He also had the best lines by far.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 1:40 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Soggy, a program where all the characters are UNlikeable and hate one another isn't interesting either. See reality TV. Or better yet, don't. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 10, 2011, 7:14 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Umm, Mythigator? Dean said "pedantic", not "pedophiliac". The words have vastly different meanings. But never mind. The point is that Smith was SUPPOSED to be obnoxious. A program in which all the characters are likable and love one another wouldn't have been as interesting. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 10, 2011, 1:44 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 To Dean: I think the "Simpsons" writers came to the same sort of conclusion about Dr. Smith as you did. They had an episode where the actor who played Smith appeared at a Sci-Fi convention, and he was putting some moves on Bart. I know: "Eeeeeeeeewwwwwww!!!" But it does explain a few things. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 14, 2010, 7:44 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
16 This series may have undergone the most profound changes of any single television show. First, it was originally shot in black and white, where the storylines ran to the serious issues of a little American family in the vastness of the universe and the problems of dealing with the creatures they encountered and trying to find their way either back home or to their destination of Alpha Centauri. That first season featured some very dramatic and rather powerful stuff! But then, it went to a full color format and, thanks primarily to the success of the television version of "Batman," the producers chose to start doing camp style storylines, turning the sinister saboteur Dr. Zachary Smith into the pedantic comedic star, with the Robot and Will Robinson always at hand as his foils. I never understood why Dr. Smith was so thrilled with the concept of returning to Earth. He would have just been arrested for his acts and thrown in ja... oh, on second thought, I get it now. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:39 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
17 The reason that I watched this show was because of Dr. Smith's antics. Entertainment at the highest level. R.I.P. Johnathan Harris. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 7, 2010, 8:27 pm - (-3 votes) - Login to Vote

19 Anyone else wish they'd have dumped Dr. Smith on the first asteroid they came to? From saboteur at the beginning to cartoonish coward after they got to that first moon, there was really no good reason to keep him around! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 12, 2009, 11:50 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
