5.0 out of 5 stars Lost In Space - Second Season - the best season!, 24 July 2004
This review is from: Lost In Space: Season 2 [DVD] [1966] (DVD)
This was the first season of 'LIS' to be filmed in colour and for me is the best of the 3 seasons. It is very different from the first season of "serious Sci-fi" storylines filmed in black-and-white. The 30 episodes start off with the Robinsons being forced to take off from the 'planet' that they were stranded on for the previous season. This leads into some excellent 'spacebound' episodes early in the season; most notably 'The Ghost Planet' with excellent production values, storylines and studio sets. They then crash land on a new planet which becomes their home for the remainder of the second season. After some early episodes featuring all the cast members, the episodes increasingly begin to centre around stories involving mainly Dr Smith, Will Robinson and the Robot, and these episodes have an increasing comedy flavour to them, which tends to be the main stay of this second season. Some excellent episodes are 'The Android Machine', 'The Wreck of The Robot' and the fans favourite 'The Golden Man' (strong moral messages in this episode). However, some episodes are so "over the top" as to be quite frankly ludicrous; notable examples of these are 'West of Mars', 'The Space Vikings' and the dreadful 'The Questing Beast'. Nevertheless these episodes are saved by their excellent production values. The video transfers on some of the episodes have rather "washed-out" colours with blunt definition while most of the other episodes are very clear, doing good justice to the DVD format. However, it is apparent that 'FOX' have not attempted to digitally clean up the pictures for this box set, which is rather a shame given that the technology to do this is easily accessible in the industry now, and it is also probably to do with the age and condition of the source material which must be now 38 years old!. Regardless of this 'FOX' should be heartily congratulated for bringing out this box set and for any fan of the series (or even if you are not!) this is a must have series which has stood the test of time. Rush out and buy it, it is great value for money, and roll on the third season!
