Product Description

Lost In Space ~ Vol. 1-Season 2

Amazon.ca

While Lost in Space may never enter the pantheon of great television programming, the 1960s sci-fi show certainly has its charms, all of them in evidence on this first volume of episodes from the second season. Produced by Irwin Allen, who would later be responsible for blockbuster disaster films like The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, these 16 episodes from 1966-67 (spread out over four DVDs) find the show undergoing some changes, both technically (from black & white into color) and in terms of tone (more campy and tongue-in-cheek, especially as the season goes on). The latter is due in large part to the performance of Jonathan Harris as Dr. Zachary Smith, who puts the "arch" in archvillain (it was his meddling that got them all lost in the first place). Harris's portrayal of Smith as cowardly, duplicitous, pompous, and not a little fey often goes right over the top, but the other characters (including Guy Williams as Prof. John Robinson, June Lockhart as his wife Maureen, and young Bill Mumy as Will) are so bland and generic that Harris, the family robot, and guest stars like Strother Martin and Wally Cox offer the only available relief.

The Lost in Space storylines are predictable (almost always involving some alien-related jeopardy prompted by Smith's greed and foolishness) and the special effects and production values won't excite anyone used to the wonders of the digital age. Still, this is television, where budgets are smaller and schedules much tighter, so lowered expectations are in order anyway. Some users may feel shortchanged by the absence of extra features, or by the fact that the set doesn't include the entire season (the second part is available separately). But the transfers are good and the DVD menus easily navigable. But on the whole Lost in Space devotees--and there are many of them--should be well satisfied. --Sam Graham

Well, received LIS, Season2, V1 today.
Box, very nice artwork.
CD covers, very nice artwork.
To start with, I agree the previous reviewer, that the colors are vibrant. The resulting picture is pretty clear.
The only problem, AGAIN, is that, like the 1st season, you can see the Interlace lines in the picture. That would suggest that the "digital" copy was made, possibly, via an older Telecine machine. There are systems that can copy film, frame-by-frame, which results in the clearest, interlace-free pictures possible. Clearly, this was not used here.
I make copies of old film at home with my NLE studio and do not get Interlace lines at all. Unfortunately, I won't spend the money for frame-by-frame..... [cheap! ;) ]
So, I am disappointed with the lines, especially when viewed on our HDTV, which has Progressive Scan. For those not familiar, Progressive Scan doesn't interlace the lines on the screen like you would normally see on a "regular" TV set. On an interlaced TV, the larger the screen, the more pronounced the lines.
That being said, it would have been nice for Fox to use better technology (frame-by-frame) to transfer film to digital, in order to not have the interlaced lines.
As clear as the picture is, when viewed on a larger screen, HDTV, the lines are very noticable.... it's like watching a TV without Progressive Scan.
Still, it's better than NOT having the collection at all! :)

I purchased the Complete First Season and plan to buy Season 2 and Season 3 when they are released. I grew up watching Lost In Space (didn't miss an episode) and was thrilled to discover that the First Season was available and passed the word along to my brother who also purchased it. My favorite characters were Don, Judy and Dr. Smith. The interaction and 'no love lost' between Don West and Dr. Smith was and still hillarious!

Would have probably rated it a 5 if it was a single box set.
I would rather wait for a single 8-disk set rather than split up a season. What are they thinking? This is not a good precedent to be setting. IF the first season was issued as a vol 1/vol 2 set, then I wouldn't have a problem but since the entire season was bundled then they should continue this way. Like I said, what are they thinking?

This series [TV-Series 1965-1968] is formulated on the old serial cliffhangers. The stages are cardboard and Styrofoam. The props look like anything lying around in the warehouse. From the dialog, you would not realize that the actors can and are acting. As the programs, progress the stories get weirder to holds your attention. There are also several notable guests including Robbie the Robot that always outsmarts "The Robot" (Bob May) The Robot's voice is Dick Tufeld.

We all know the basic story of a saboteur Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris) is too smart for his own good and his sabotage backfires from the start throwing the spaceship into who knows where with him trapped inside. What is worse is he never learns from episode to episode. Prof. John Robinson (Guy Williams) is the good guy father that is always giving one hope of being found or getting back. Maureen Robinson (June Lockhart) is the stereotypical motherly type and is caught occasionally stopping John from beating Zackary's brains out. We have mischievous kids always wandering off to discover the new trouble. And a watered down love interest between daughter Judy (Marta Kristen) and Major Don West (Mark Goddard).

How will they survive?
What strange creature or disaster will befall them this week?

Someone may have modified the media somewhat. "Oh, the pain, the pain." However, we buy what we can.

I love the non-campy, serious episode when John and Don are tinkering with some machine and out of nowhere, the evil "anti-world" John Robinson appears from that machine, and then he somehow takes John back to his "anti" world, and locks him up in a cage. And the evil John attempts to get the Don and the famiy to prepare to launch the ship off of that planet, leaving the real John behind.
I forget how he gets found out by the Robinsons, but, anyways, the Robinsons go into that "anti" world via that machine to rescue him. The neat thing in the "anti" world is when the crew travel along that wierd path in space to the "anti" world. It's like a one of those moving walking paths at an airport, where you can just stand still and it will move you, but in space. Great episode.
And I LOVE the episode, when the Robinson's encounter those alien teenagers on that planet who cannot age any further. They appear friendly to the Robinsons at first, but, then their motive later on is to perform some kind of surgery on Will and Penny and take something from them (I forget what) that will let the Aliens grow into adults. It was great when those alien teens would, after hearing a loud alarm that would sound off periodically during the episode, would just stop whatever they are doing and start dancing to a neat sounding piece of music from the 60's. Just out of the blue, they start dancing.
How about the VERY silly episode, when Dr Smith and the Robot turn the Jupiter 2 into the "Happy Acres Hotel" for aliens after the other Robinsons leave the ship for some reason in that Chariot. I liked this one, although, very, stupid and silly.
And I love when the Robot grows to a much larger size.
