I wrote this article to find some answers to doubts of one of the collaborators of this Wikia, TwilightReaderFan. This collaborator posted in this Wikia excellent article in memory of Guy Williams, "The Antimatter Man". In this article TwilightReaderFan questions the fact that a man as badly, physically and psychologically, as is the anti John Robinson, feel obligated to protect matter Will and, furthermore, have feelings for the family of matter John.
Recently in an article I wrote for this Wikia for the episode "Follow the Leader" I pointed out that it was strange that Kanto had any interest in protecting Will's life. TwilightReaderFan was the one who noticed the coincidence in the story lines of both LIS episodes. And he wrote: "When y…Read more >

Hi Fellow LIS fans
I have uploaded the intros from seasons 1 to 3 from the Bluray release and stitched them together.
They are actually not the real intro's but the menu selection for the three season discs
The quality is awesome on bluray so much more detail and the colour in seasons two and three are so vibrant but natural, even the first season black and white episodes display deeper blacks and white, a real treat to watch and worth the expense of the box set.
I have the link (from my webpage) posted in the Video section of this wiki or you can go to it directly here:

Classic Television Shows Analyzed for Modern AudiencesRSS Twitter The 10 Best Lost in Space Episodes September 21st, 2015 Posted in Lost in Space By Jon Davidson Write comment After reviewing every episode of Lost in Space this past summer, I thought it would be fun to create a list of my personal favorites while the show is still somewhat fresh in my memory. Below are my rankings for the episodes that are, in my opinion, the best in the entire series.
10) The Derelict
While this one isn’t usually considered to be among the greatest Lost in Space episodes, I decided to give it a spot on this list for a couple of reasons. For one thing, the slow pacing works quite well at acquainting the audience with the main charac…

Tuesday, September 15, 2015, 7.30 EDT marks the fiftieth anniversary of the premier of Lost in Space with "The Reluctant Stowaway." The first episode of season one aired on a Wednesday evening on CBS against Legend of Custer on ABC and The Virginian on NBC. It was followed at 8.30 by The Beverly Hillbillies on CBS.Read more >
Below is a very close tentative estimate of my personal stellar first season (1965-66) episode rankings of LOST IN SPACE. All these classic B&W episodes, as a matter of fact, also make up my personal top twenty-nine episodes of the entire series. I hardly, hardly ever watch any episodes anymore, so it is slightly difficult for me to recall accurate rankings from my good old prime viewing days. This is far and away the superior, definitive, elite and best season.
1. 1-01 The Reluctant Stowaway 2. 1-04 There Were Giants In The Earth 3. 1-05 The Hungry Sea 4. 1-02 The Derelict 5. 1-03 Island In The Sky 6. 1-07 My Friend, Mr. Nobody 7. 1-11 Wish Upon A Star 8. 1-29 Follow The Leader 9. 1-16 The Keeper Part 1 10. 1-17 The Keeper Part II 11. 1-15…Read more >
'Read these dialogues from Follow the Leader. After, think about if John Robinson committed a crimes behind the mask of Canto. Could John Robson be blamed? Leave your opinion here.
John - Do not touch that food. Smith - But, you just said that... John - You are not gonna eat any food from this table today. And if you are not on time tomorrow for breakfast , you are not gonna eat for another 24 hours , Dr. smith. is that understood Just because I expect a little discipline, a little routine from that man. Does not mean that I am sick?
Judy - Dad is awake. Maureen - Good ! How is headache John - Gone and forgotten. I am feel fine now. Maureen- Oh, thanks goodness. John - I said I feel fine now. Now, let is drop the subject. Judy - We are goi…

I don't know how I missed this, but on April 30, 2015 the Wikipedia page on Lost in Space was updated with the following addition.
"On October 10, 2014, it was announced that "Legendary TV" is developing a new reboot of Lost in Space and they have hired "Dracula Unborn" screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen the new epic. As of April 2015 no further word has been officially released regarding the project, however as Kevin Burns of Synthesis entertainment is involved it can definitely be considered a serious project. Fans are hoping that this time the show will be serious "hard" sci-fi in approach and that the main features, such as the overall look of the characters, the design of the Jupiter 2 and other hardware, as well as adh…Read more >
I have to start by saying that I never liked Dr. Smith. As a child watching Lost in Space in the 1960’s I found him by turns frightening or ridiculous. With the simple black-or-white (and somewhat bloody-minded) logic of an eight-year-old, I asked why the Robinsons didn’t just kill him. As simple as that. Now, after fifty or so years to reflect (although I admit I never gave the matter a second thought for most of that time) I have come to have a completely different view of Dr. Smith’s character. It certainly was not black-or-white. It wasn’t even shades of grey. In some ways, Dr. Smith was one of the most realistic characters developed over the course of the series. The only other characters who really showed any character development at …Read more >
Penny Robinson had more episodes that revolved around her than almost any other character in Lost in Space except Dr. Smith. Even her brother Will, although much more prominent throughout the series, does not have as many episodes devoted to him unless you count a number where Dr. Smith is in fact the central character.
Over the course of the show’s three seasons, several facets of Penny’s character are revealed. Rather than presenting her as a fragmented character, though, these different glimpses into the mind and heart of the young girl add up to give a good overview of a balanced and not too unusual child.
Penny is early characterised as a tomboy by her sister Judy (“The Magic Mirror”) and she does, in fact, spend a lot of time with Will h…Read more >
Of all the regular cast members of Lost in Space, none shows more development of character (in a literary, if not a psychological, sense) over the show’s three year run than Dr. Zachary Smith. What is interesting about Dr. Smith’s development, though, is not that he moved from A to B, but rather, in the course of his adventures with the Robinson family, Major West, and the Robot, we are treated to glimpses of a Dr. Smith who is neither the menacing, evil presence of the first several episodes bent on the murder of the crew of the Jupiter 2, nor the arrogant, greedy, manipulative, and cowardly buffoon most people call to mind when they hear his name.
I think of the episodes which afford us insights into the different aspects of Smith’s chara…Read more >
Hi LIS fans
I created a 24min video summary of all the season 3 coming attractions/cliffhanger that were at the end of each episode.
I added the countdown intro and ended the video with "sparkling credits". It was time consuming to do but fun non the less.
The video is linked below in the pic
You can also locate this in the video section of this wiki or in the season 3 section of this wiki @ the comments field by me right at end of page
Hope you enjoy the production !!

As we discussed in this Wikia the transformation process of John Robinson / Kanto and Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader are very similar. Both had different motives for embarking on paths that led them to practice hatred, crime, and revolt over their fellows.However, the same can not be said about the alter-ego that both assumes.
John Robinson, in the episode Follow the Leader assumes the identity of a stranger, the one of Kanto, that overlaps the will of John. Anakin Skywalker, upon transforming into Vader, takes over his other half. This means that Anakin and Vader represent the duality that exists in the same person, Anakin Skywalker.
In this sense, the human duality existing between Anakin / Vader approaches the one that is represented in t…Read more >
I will try to write here what are the semblances and differences between John Robinson/Canto (Lost in Space - Follow the Leader) and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader (Star Wars).
- What does Canto want from John Robinson? His courage and boldness.
- What does Palpatine want from Anakin? His Force.
- How does Canto seduce John Robinson by the dark side? Exploiting his anguish: His children lost in space... John Robinson is a father that wants to help his children to go back to Earth.. But he does not have the power to do this. Canto has this power. But Canto wants others things from John Robinson.
- How does Palpatine seduce Anakin by the dark side? Exploiting his anguish: Anakin is afraid of death his wife.
- Semblance: John and Anakin, after of the seduct…
I really do appreciate the anonymous user who has come in and linked certain characters and names so they could link over to other pages.
Somebody didn't put in the right information for the Bubble Creatures, so when I clicked on it, it went nowhere - page does not exist. When I fixed the spelling errors, the link was now linkable.
If your link is BLUE, everything should be fine, when it's RED, then there is a problem. Either you put in the characters wrong, or misspelled something...or the page may not be there to link with. Someone tried to link a page with "Phanzig" - however if you click Phanzig, the page goes blank because something was wrong with that link. First of all, there would have to be a "Phanzig" Page in the first place. I cou…Read more >

TALK: BILL MUMY
I've seen inerviews of Bill Mumy where he recounts his "Lost In Space" adventures. After all...we have to be honest and say he was the star of the show...along with Jonathan Harris (Dr. Smith), and the Robot.
However, he rarely mentions his other castmates. I personally would want him to talk about Guy Williams, who played his father, John Robinson. The character of 'John Robinson' has been voted one of the most popular tv dads in tv history. Many fans grew up watching Lost In Space and considered John Robinson as a surrogate dad. I wish Mumy would talk about his real relationship with Williams. They portrayed such a loving father and son that it often touched the heart...no matter how silly some of the episodes were.

THANKS FOR STORY SYNOPSIS!
To whoever made the story synopsis of the most of the espisodes of the first year....I want to thank you. Some of these synopsis have SO much incredible detail that I'm amazed. I don't know who contributed...because I can find no author...but the job was a job WELL done! I've looked online for story synopsis to help out with the episodes that have not been done. But I truly can't find anything even CLOSE to what is here. Whoever made those wonderful contributons....PLEASE finish! Like I said, I've tried to do a few story synopsis myself...but I can't come even close to what the contributor posted. Please come back...and please finish.
Thank you again!

STORY SYNOPSIS - SEASON 1
Original Air Date: Wednesday, April 27, 1966 on CBS
Filmed in black-and-white, the first season of Lost in Space took itself more seriously than subsequent seasons -- at least at the outset. Set in 1997, the series began as the Robinsons, a family of space travelers preparing for a five-year exploratory voyage to the Alpha Centauri star system in the "Jupiter II." Unfortunately, an enemy spy named Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris) intends to sabotage the mission and kill the family, with help of his malevolent robot. But when the Jupiter II blasts off, Dr. Smith is trapped inside the veh…Read more >

Lost in Space was a feature film based on the original television series. It opened in the USA on April 3, 1998.
In the year 2058, Earth is an environmental disaster. It is estimated that within 20 years the planet will be unable to support Human life. The United Global Space Force initiates the Jupiter Mission. A family will be sent to the nearest habitable planet, Alpha Prime, where they will build a HyperGate enabling the people of Earth to evacuate safely. Unfortunately, the Global Sedition has hired Dr. Zachary Smith to sabotage the mission. Smith sneaks aboard the Jupiter 2 and programs the missi…

I had no idea that this 2004 pilot episode even existed until today. I've NEVER heard anything remotely about it. It is listed in this Wiki here's the link:
I wrote a quick synopsis of the pilot on the link abovle.. I have to say that I did NOT like this pilot. The fact is...I LOVED it! I can't believe how wonderful it was...and that it wasn't picked up along with all the other crapola shows that premier every year.
However, I feel the need to say that the pilot was very unpopular. Ninety percent of the feedback that I have read had been negative. Complaints are a weak story line, John Robinson is now a Military Leader, adding a new character, David to the mix, Judy's attitude was…Read more >
