4.0 out of 5 stars The Final Roundup
There has been much lamenting about the fact that the transfer of the final season of LIS is less sharp then hoped for - and, in truth, this IS the case with this set. Certain of the episodes are a bit more blurred than we'd hoped for. However, if you first saw these stories during their initial run in the late sixties, I don't think you'll find too much to grumble about...

3.0 out of 5 stars Eccellent Stories spoilt by poor Picture Quality
I am about half way through this third season and have found the stories,performances and production values are as good if not better than the two previous sets ..in other words this third season is great !....but the bad news and the reason I havent given this set the 5 stars it should have is that the picture is a bit below standard ..its not as good as the previous...

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Lost In Space, 9 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 3 [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
I approached this DVD set with some trepidation given the reviews which criticise the image quality. Well, the quality is not as good as season 2 but it is perfectly acceptable and didn't detract from my enjoyment of the DVD's.

If season 1 could be described as semi-serious SF and season 2 as silly ('the space vikings' and 'the questing beast') then season 3 can only be described as very silly. The penultimate episode features a planet of sentient plants run by a giant carrot. The season features of course the usual camp comedy of Dr Smith, the robot and Will. However, unlike season 2, other members of the cast do get a look in. The extras are good too, with interviews with Bill Mumy and Jonathan Harris.

If you are a Lost In Space fan then this is a fantastic DVD set to watch and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Warning! Hokey fun approaching, 26 April 2010

This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 3 [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
This series [TV-Series 1965-1968] is formulated on the old serial cliff-hangers. The stages are cardboard and Styrofoam. The props look like anything lying around in the ware house. 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?

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

1.0 out of 5 stars FOX Should reissue this with better quality, 19 Aug 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 3 [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
Believe everything you have heard about the bad picture quality on this release. in a direct comparison with the Australian VHS releases of a few years ago the image on these DVDs is painfull to witness. the australian VHS tapes are sharper, clearer and have better colour saturation and balance.
these dvds look like they have been mastered from bad quality LP recorded VHS, thats how bad they are
lets hope FOX does the decent thing and orders a recall and a new pressing
in short: AVOID

5.0 out of 5 stars Affirmative Will Robinson, 10 Nov 2008

This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 3 [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
Ok I went against all the reviewers here saying that the quality of the third season is really poor and went ahead a bought it and guess what...there is absolutly nothing wrong with it whatsoever! The only thing I noticed on a few of the frames in one episode, there is a faint line running from top too bottom that is clearly on the original footage and it really dosen't spoil the viewing. The transfers are fine. Consider that it was made in 67/68 on 35mm stock the actual quality is superb. So if you have been put off by previous reviewers, ignore them and go for it if you are a fan,(even if your not). I found the third series easly the best of all of then, having said that all the series have something to offer. But they really expanded it by the third, greater production values and what a suprise to hear the 'new' intro music ( I had forgotten) This is so worthy of 5 stars, go bye before they are gone!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor picture quality lets set down, 15 Feb 2006

This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 3 [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
I snapped up the first two series as soon as they became availiable, but have only now purchased season three. I've read all about the poor picture quality issues and I'm afraid to say the comments are true. BUT, we should I suppose, be grateful to get any sort of DVD release, and I feel it is unlikely that Fox will issue a new season three set, I could be wrong, but I dont think so. I'm still waiting patiently for other Irwin Allen releases (Time tunnel, Land of the Giants, etc) so I will just have to make do with this realease.

A great TV Series that I remember from the late sixties when I was growing up This is a classic with the characters DR Smith and young Robinson....

True memories, it is dated but maybe that is also part of the appeal to watch this and other series that was on TV at that time when we grew up .....

Well worth adding to your classic TV Collection

This item completes the set.
I considered the other reviews but as I like the series went ahead and purchased it.
It isn't up to the standard of the previous two season sets as it does appear very slightly out of focus at times, it is however still watchable and entertaining.
Worth purchasing but dont expect crystal clear picture quality.
