As its second season progressed, and as these 14 episodes from 1967 attest, Lost in Space continued to swap science fiction for comic fantasy, and the show's ratings went into orbit. While Star Trek satisfied a smaller audience of serious sci-fi fans on NBC, Lost in Space (airing Wednesday nights on CBS) delighted a younger audience with the cheesy adventures of "Space Family Robinson," stranded on an isolated planet that nevertheless played host to an abundance of alien visitors. Here they include operatic Vikings, a disembodied mechanical head, a spacefaring buccaneer, a Scottish bagpiper in a haunted castle, and, in the deliriously entertaining episode "Revolt of the Androids," a silver-painted super-being whose primary purpose is to "Crush...Kill...Destroy!!" It's all harmless family fun, offering equal amounts of tongue-in-cheek whimsy and some scary highlights that kids, then and now, will find instantly unforgettable.
Yes, it all looks quaint and innocent by present-day standards, and it's painfully obvious that series creator Irwin Allen didn't know what to do with the Robinson clan, a wooden variant of Ozzie & Harriett in V-necked velour, with June Lockhart playing happy homemaker while patriarch Guy Williams spent most of his time repairing damaged equipment. It's just as well, since season 2 is dominated by the scene-stealing duo of Dr. Smith (played by Jonathan Harris in the role he was born to play) and the sarcastic Robot B-9, who plays a scolding R2D2 to Harris's duplicitous, flamboyantly feckless C3PO, the latter delivering alliterative insults (like "you ingot of ingratitude!" and "you nickel-plated nincompoop!") in virtually every episode. Guest stars like Albert Salmi, Al "Grandpa Munster" Lewis, and John Carradine are in on the game, adding weekly flavor to a series that shares much in common with such later kid-stuff as H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Lost. Some may find it hopelessly ridiculous in retrospect, but Lost in Space still offers fun aplenty for those who enjoy its anything-goes approach to low-budget fantasy for the young and young-at-heart. Unfortunately for devoted fans, vintage 1966 radio interviews with Lockhart, Williams, and Harris are the only extras in this well-mastered four-disc set. --Jeff Shannon

In this part of the season we go from the sublime to the silly.There is an ep early on that is so oddly out of place it hits you like a rock.Will is exposed to some alien knowledge and becomes very disillusioned and cynical with the way the adults around him behave. There is a very touching moment where Doctor Smith tells Will(as he walks away) to not grow up too quickly.It is a heart felt moment and one you do not see very often on LIS.On the ridiculous side we have plots that involve a silly knight and a talking dragon,a ghost,a pirate,space vikings and a toymaker.We see the visits of actors Hans Conried, and in the last ep John Carradine.We also see the robot becoming more and more human,with his over acting,cat calls and jabs,usually at the expense of Dr.Smith.
Jonathan Harris by now has become the star of the show.There isn't an ep he isn't in.The audience ate his performances up then and he still is absolutely hilarious with his sneakiness combined with his extreme cowardice.Even though you could hate him,you still couldn't/can't get enough of him.He made it look all too easy,and it shows just what a consummate actor he was.
Included with this set are two audio interviews with cast members Williams and Lockhart together,and one with Harris alone.I especially recommend the latter,as you get a nice glimpse into the mind of Harris the actor.Lastly this is the last season with the same theme song and the "same time,same station" credits at the end of each ep.Read more ›
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?
Some one may have modified the media somewhat. "Oh, the pain, the pain." However we buy what we can.
