Lost in Space began life in 1965 as a science-fiction take on The Swiss Family Robinson. Produced by Irwin Allen, then in the midst of his run of spectacular-but-childish TV SF (before he became the master of big-screen disaster movies), the show featured a family of all-American space colonists cast away on a mysterious planet. Gradually the whole thing devolved into a silly (but sometimes fun) exercise in childish camp. This box set includes all 29 black and white episodes from the first season (with a burst of colour at the end of the last show--a foretaste of the garish look of the remaining two seasons) along with "No Place to Hide", the expensive pilot show that sold the series but which prompted Allen to revamp the whole premise in comic mode when network execs responded best to its unintended humour.

"No Place to Hide" has action scenes that cropped up in the first six regular episodes but is missing several of the show's trademark aspects, most notably that infectious theme from Johnny Williams (later, John Williams of Star Wars fame) and the scheming presence of Dr Smith (Jonathan Harris) and his alternately menacing and comical robot ("It does not compute"). As the series progresses (or degenerates, depending on your taste), Harris's Smith changes from pantomime villain, a saboteur who is trying to kill the family, into pantomime dame, a panicky old idiot whose foolishness, cowardice and avarice are an endless source of plots. It mostly makes do with the regular cast plus an array of shaggy-suited, snarling aliens, but you do get sterling ham from visiting astronauts such as Warren Oates ("Welcome Stranger"), Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet ("War of the Robots") and a very young Kurt Russell ("The Challenge"). Stories about surviving on an alien world give way to lifts from fairy tale, myth and old movies as Smith gets hold of a wishing cap, becomes a giant, is chosen as a sacrificial king, turns the children over to an alien zoo, squeaks in fright as a werewolf approaches or is cursed with a platinum Midas touch. --Kim Newman

Utterly delighted this was released on DVD. If u r a fan - "a must buy." Great to see all these episodes again (first seen first time around in the 60s and then, I believe, the re-runs over 10 years later.
Forgive the dodgy special effects - because remember when it was made! The stories may vary in quality too, but overall a marvellous array of episodes; backed up by a memorable soundtrack - the kind that sticks in your mind.
Star of the show for me is the Robot! Still holds up well after all this time.
I see rumours of a re-make on the horizon. If so, though the special effects will supposedly be better, will it match the "feel" and "humanity" of the original series here?
This original series also caught the genuine essence of being utterly lost and battling the elements - a good education for a 7 yr-old at the time!
There are many many episodes here; so excuse the 'duff' ones - the best more than make up for them. Special mention goes to the first episode - beautifully setting the scene.
Oh, and look out for the bizarre but curious appearance of a young, but easily identifiable, Kurt Russell!
My favourite memory revisited? Well, the cyclops throwing the boulder down on to the Chariot............."Ah - the memories; the memories........."
Though, no doubt, Dr. Smith would say, "Oh, the pain; the pain."

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost somewhere in space but very close to heart! 17 Mar 2005
By A Customer
How wonderful, indeed, that the original Lost in Space TV series gets the DVD format. Like many children during the mid-1960s, I too grew up with this series. Very fond memories come back and everything seems new and fresh somehow. While I like the entire series, there are, of course, episodes which I like better than others. I particularly cherish the first episodes, not really because they were filmed in B&W (although perhaps this helps, too), but because they have a certain unforgettable quality about them that still fascinate me. To be precise, the first 7 epsiodes, especially the first, the third, the fourth, the fifth and the seventh) are especially memorable (the others of varying preference) but I am quite certain that the feel of the original series just could not be filmed today the same way. In short, I am happy to have grown up with this series (and others) and I still view these epsiodes and cherish them deeply. True the effects are not today's standard, of course, but are more than adequate and indeed excellent for the time and fairly convincing even today. The best is the "traditional" family relationship which by some standards is "out-of-date" but I strongly disagree. Fortunately, my young niece simply loves Lost in Space, and her uncle is more than happy to share an endearing part of his youth with her, since anything well-done that promotes noble family and human values is timeless...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in space one. 26 July 2011
Lost in Space is a fun science fiction series from the 1960s. It is not something you can take too seriously. In fact it's just a lot of nonsense really. But it is just simply fun.
The show was produced by Irwin Allen around the time that her was producing his other show "voyage to the bottom of the sea".
The series is set in the year 1997 and as the world is over populated the Robinson Family are sent on a five-year mission to a planet in the Alpha Centauri system to plan for colonisation. The whole family are suspended in deep sleep for their journey. But Dr Zachary Smith, who is a foreign agent, sabotages the spaceship. He interferes with the "Robot" who is controlling the spaceship. The ship takes off before Smith can escape, forcing Smith to wake the family to rectify the situation and ultimately save himself.
The Family are father John Robinson, an astrophysicist, his wife Maureen who is a biochemist, children Judy, Penny and Will. Also on board is pilot Don West.
Thanks to Smith the spaceship is not on its correct journey so the crew become lost in space. This first series has the travellers crash on a planet and stories revolve around them trying to repair the Jupiter II. Each episode has an alien that always puts the crew in danger. And Dr Zachary Smith who is always looking for a way back home even at the expense of the safety of the Robinson family always treacherously assists the aliens. He is lazy, delicate and critical of others unless it's to his advantage to be nice to them. He often enlists the help of Will Robinson and the Robot in his schemes.

The original idea of the programme was meant to be pure science fiction and a pilot episode was made that did not include the character smith.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first bought the series two 'Lost in space' for my son (age 9) and he loves it (its packaged just like this series 1 set). We watch about an episode or two a week (so have weeks to go). The series 2 was 'Lost in space' as I remember it: classy and very colourful sets, funny, with an increasingly camp Dr Smith having more catch phrases than Athur Askey ("spare me the barbs major"). I did vaguely remember this first series (particularly the excellent first few episodes concerning leaving Earth eg. 'The reluctant stowaway') and knew Dr Smith, the Jupiter II and the crew were all present and correct. However I had forgotten how dark, menacing and calculating Dr Smith was in this series. My son found series one too frightening to watch past the first few episodes, and was particularly disappointed with the B&W TV images (although I found some of these early episodes more interesting than those in the second series - but I even I did miss the gaudy colour, although the B&W sets and effects are just as good).

So if you are buying for your children I would skip straight to series two and give a two minute intro, but if you want a bit more bite then go for this series as well. Be warned though there are thirty episodes in this 8-disk DVD collection - over twenty hours of prime time TV from 1965/1966. Series 2 is the same length but from 1966/1967. So good value at least, and the picture quality and production values of these series 1 (and 2) DVD's is top notch. There's no extra's, although the very nice packaging includes a cute little 10 page pull-out booklet of the episodes and characters, plus there's that un-aired pilot episode 'No place to hide'. The box set is rated U [some mild peril], run-time: 1,481 minutes [24.7 hours], with English mono audio and English HOH subtitles [no other languages supported].
