Lost in Space


In the year 1997, Earth is suffering from massive overpopulation. Professor John Robinson(Guy Williams) , his wife Maureen (June Lockhart), their children (Judy (Marta Kristen), Penny (Angela Cartwright) and Will (Bill Mumy) and Major Don West (Mark Goddard) are selected to go to the third planet in the Alpha Centauri star system to establish a colony so that other Earth people can settle there. They are to go there on a ship of Professor Robinson's design, christened the Jupiter 2. However, Doctor Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris), an agent for an enemy government, is sent to sabotage the mission. He is successful in reprogramming the ship's robot, but in the process becomes trapped on the ship, and because of his excess weight, the ship and all on board become hopelessly lost and it now becomes a fight for survival as the crew tries to find their way back home.

This programme was fantastic I watched the reruns in the late 70's, it was really good and what's more still is! Doctor Smith's interactions with the long-suffering robot are, of course, the integral part of most of the 'plots'. It's have loads of laughs in it! The whole thing is superb, I would recommend you watch this series as you wont be disappointed!!!!
