Instead rejoice in the fact that after Season Two - (which was basically "Zachary's Space Camp") - the rest of the family occasionally get a look in, rather than than the ever-present trio of Dr Smith/Will (the always brilliant Billy Mumy) and the Robot.
More zany stories - including such delights as the celebrated "Great Vegetable Rebellion" - and outlandish nonsense, culminating in "The Promised Planet" - probably the first "hommage to hippy culture" of the 20th century.
A box of delights - that every spaced-out SF freak should own.
We had learned from season one that Lost in space is set in the year 1997 and as the world is over populated the Robinson Family had been sent on a mission to a planet in the Alpha Centauri system to plan for colonisation. The whole family had been suspended in deep sleep for their journey. But Dr Zachary Smith, who was a stowaway and saboteur on their spaceship The Jupiter II, had caused them to become lost in space and stranded on an alien planet.
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.
Series two and now series three concentrates more on the antics of its main character Dr Zachary Smith played brilliantly by Jonathan Harris. He has created a unique character that is rich in texture. He is devious but still likeable. He is farcical in an exaggerated Pantomime style.
The whole show is fun and cannot be taken seriously. It is not meant to be. Instead we get an entertaining show that can appeal to any generation.
As with all the seasons the aliens are generally not very convincing. And the special effects are not up to modern standards but it doesn't matter. What we get is fantasy and a place to unwind from the normal stresses of the real world.
Like other shows such as Batman from the same era, it is deliberately daft nonsense that is just pure escapism with light hearted colourful characters.
The entire cast is great. Jonathan Harris is genius as Smith. Guy Williams (John Robinson) has previously starred as swashbuckling hero Zorro and Angela Cartwright (Penny Robinson) has been one of the Von Trapp children in the Sound of Music. Billy Mumy (Will Robinson) was a child actor who is still a successful actor.
The show became an iconic cult show and a feature film remake was made in 1997 starring William Hurt as John Robinson, Gary Oldman as Smith and Matt LeBlanc as Don West.
Producer Irwin Allen also created three other slightly more straight science fiction series during the sixties. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Land of the Giants and the Time Tunnel.
This third series of Lost in Space is in colour and the picture and sound are excellent and there are some reasonable extra features. It was the last of the seasons and I think it would not have been a good idea to do anymore. Season two was probably the best of the three but season three just continues the format and gets as much out of it as it can.
This is a very good box set of a classic fun science fiction series, which is neatly presented.
