You can buy t-h-i-s singular program, from Season Two, and the other three

[THIS ONE]==>Pioneers of Television: Pioneers Science Fiction
Pioneers of Television: Pioneers of Crime Dramas

A better deal, yet, is to buy the four hour set on one disc:
((Which contains everything above at a tremendous bargain price.))
Pioneers of Television: Season 2
The PBS series is

4.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past 3 May 2014

This is a great series and being a science fiction fan and old enough to have seen these shows when they premiered, I enjoyed learning more about them.
3.0 out of 5 stars Kindof weird 19 April 2014

While the content is okay, it is weird how they tried to "re-create" the old sets of some shows, putting in new actors and making it look like it was behind-the-scenes filming from the original series. Laughable was the fat guy they put in place of Shatner. I will say they tried to re-create the original look, but it's so fake. If they just stuck with original clips and a making-of story, it would have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD 13 Sep 2011

My husband asked me to buy this video after seeing the show on PBS. As a big Sci Fi fan, he loves it, and wanted to own it. It's a great show. Lots of history of science fiction.

1.0 out of 5 stars biased program 30 July 2013
By Christopher Krieg - Published on
This was most biased program on televised science fiction in decades...they had Gene roddenberry refer to Lost IN Space as a 'kiddie program" which is was not simply because CBS liked IRwin Allen's concept of a family of space pioneers more so than Star Trek. CBS felt that Lost IN Space was simply more commercial and they were right as Star Trek was a complete failure on commercial network television. The program also inferrs that CBS was stealing Roddenberry's cost cutting ideas for use on Lost IN Space...and that was complete lie. There has never been one iota of evidence that this was true. IRwin Allen was already a very successive Emmy Awarding winner producer of documentaries of "The World Around Us" and new how to produce a good science fiction teleivsion series after he successfully brought Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea to teleivison in 1964. In order to make Roddenberry's claim that LIS was a kiddie show, they of course aired a clip of a episode of LIS from late in the third year of the series, The Great Vegatable Rebellion which by that time, LIS had degenerated into a campy sci-fi series because of competition from the Batman tv series on at the time that was produced by the same studio no less. Had they used a clip from the original 1964 pilot or first year of the series, Roddenberry's claim of LIS being a kiddie show would made an empty claim. Lost In Space was not a kiddie show, and it started out very seriously in the begining descending into high camp later on, but not from the begining. These people who produced this special for PBS would have made great propaganda ministers for the Nazi's during World War Two...
