"WOW! I've really got to hand it to the producers of this programme. It is SPECTACULAR! I had heard about it when it was first broadcast in the States, but I couldn't find a copy ANYWHERE! Now, thanks to the folks at Foxstar Productions(who produced it) and Image Entertainment, HERE IT IS! One hour of GREAT information on Irwin Allen's BEST TELEVISION SERIES EVER! Hosted by TV's John Laroquette, it has everything from clips (galore) to interviews, bloopers, and scenes from the movie. But the BEST is at the END! There... RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES... JOHNATHAN HARRIS, BILL MUMY and THE ROBOT POP IN! ON THE SET OF THE JUPITER 2! IN CHARACTER! Unbeleveable, folks. As if all of this weren't enough, the DVD includes BONUS MATERIALS! Guy Williams COMPLETE screentest! Special effects bloopers! A behind-the-scenes featurette! The ORIGINAL CBS-TV network sales presentation (that was used by Irwin to promote the show to advertisers and toy companies)! What MORE could you ask for? How about GREAT picture, colour and sound quality! If you are reading this and haven't purchased one yet -- SHAME ON YOU. As for me? I was lucky to get a preview of the DVD from a friend who works at 20th Century Fox TV. I've already ordered mine! ENJOY!"
The "ultimate" Lost in Space production

"After 35 years it almost made my heart stop to see Jonathan Harris, Bill Mumy and the beloved Robot reunited on the flight deck of the Jupiter 2 in costume and character in this 1-hour TV special. Produced and directed by Lost in Space fan-boy Kevin Burns, this will delight anyone who grew up in the 60's. All I could do as I was watching the DVD was say "oooooohh". The bonus special effects and "making of" section at the end of the program were a great addition to my collection. Five stars and a great "thank you" to Kevin Burns for making this available to us."
This is a must for the "Lost in Space" fan

"This was one of the main reasons I bought my DVD player several years ago. For the "Lost in Space" this is a must. Although the television production is not that great, the extras are terrific, including outtakes and Guy William's screen test. Now that Jonathan Harris has left us, this DVD is even more special as he, Bill Mumy, and Bob May recreate their characters from the classic series one last time together."

"If you are a lost in space fan this DVD is a must! The behind the scenes footage and bloopers are amazing. Seeing Guy williams give his screen test gave me chills. If you don't have a DVD player this is good reason to get one!"
Great, but could have had a little more

"I'm not sure why someone would question the choice for the host of the show. John LaR was just fine, seeming to grasp the importance of Lost in Space to its fans. he also seemed to blend in with the inside humour. I would have liked to have seen some outtakes, but you can't have it all. As stated by another, the colour was great. Seeing Guy Williams doing the interview was very enlightening to me. He's been described as a 50's/60's George Cluny. Bull! He is an Errol Flynn if there ever was one, and that screen test mkaes him seem more akin to Flynn in that cocky way. Cluny does not have the features of those two, nor could he be considered a looker at all, in comparison. To see Johnathon Harris have some fun again was great. At the time of the 1997 movie he was asked if he did a cameo in the film. His answer was, "Cameos? We do not do cameos!" Mumy actually seemed like a kid again, which is strange for all the growing up he had to do. He was fine. All of the interviews were much appreciated, but a tad too short. Watching this made me decide to get all of the DVD's of the three seasons, but I am going to wait to see if there is a package of all of them when the second half of the third season hits. Sure beats cable-cr**ola."
