In 1965, veteran sci-fi potentate Irwin Allen created this space-age updating of The Swiss Family Robinson for CBS, and it quickly became one of the best-loved genre shows of the pre-Star Trek era. Set in the "futuristic" world of 1997, Space followed the intergalactic travels of an adventurous family catapulted beyond our solar system due to the machinations of a sabotage-minded stowaway. TV series veterans Guy Williams (Zorro) and June Lockhart (Lassie's "mom") starred as John and Maureen Robinson, husband-and-wife scientists accompanied on their outer-space explorations by son Will (Billy Mumy), daughters Judy and Penny (Marta Kristen and Angela Cartwright), stalwart pilot Don West (Mark Goddard), and the supercilious saboteur Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris). This Season 2, Volume 1 collection includes the first 16 episodes from the 1966-67 season, such as "The Ghost Planet," wherein Dr. Smith is lured away from the ship by cyborgs masquerading as Earthlings and the Robot saves him and the family. Will Robinson nearly runs off to join a traveling space menagerie in "Space Circus." "The Deadly Games of Gamma 6" finds John Robinson participating in a deadly intergalactic wrestling match. Smith is mistaken for a notorious gunslinger on a western-style planet in "West of Mars." And in "The Golden Man," Penny is caught between the leaders of two feuding alien civilizations. An undisputed favorite of baby boomers, Lost in Space served as the Wednesday night lead-in to the fish-out-of-water sitcom classics The Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres. Viewed today, its fanciful settings, trend-setting special effects, exciting action scenes, and cheeky humor add up to a welcome blast of kitsch from the past.
