Happy Fiftieth Anniversary, Lost in Space!
Irwin Allen's space adventure Lost in Space (1965-1968) premiered fifty years ago today.
Accordingly, I would like to wish every talent who worked on the series -- as well as all the fans -- a very happy fiftieth anniversary.
A full fifty years after its premiere, Lost in Space continues to be a factor in the pop culture. Characters such as the B9 robot still appear occasionally on The Simpsons (though in animated form), we had the 1998 movie starring William Hurt, and efforts are apparently on-going to re-boot the premise in a series form.
Throughout 2015, I've also been reviewing episodes of the original series -- I'm currently in the middle of the second season for that retrospective.
But all day today, I'll be posting episode reviews, and remembering the series as it turns half-a-century old.
Happy Birthday, Lost in Space (Yes, even you, Dr. Zachary Smith!).
