Still lost; still brilliant...............................
on 28 January 2004
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."
