    Kind of sad that based on their reaction to the interviewer asking whether the show resonates today with new audiences how they made it clear that it didn't unless, perhaps, the parents (or grandparents!) made them watch a few episodes.

    Like when I mention "All In The Family" or Norman Lear to anyone under 25 (and probably under 40) today. "Who?"

    Well, it still has to do with outer space and the unknown, the original Star Trek series didn't do very well in the 1960's, it was only some 25 years later that it became a cult classic series, with new movies and such, basically picking up where Captain Kirk gives the reins over to Captain Jean-Luc Picard

    The one Lost In Space movie that was done,'98, was disappointedly very far removed from the TV series adventure, except for the original character name's in the Robinson family. I think it was too much change for the LIS fans. While Star Trek has kept its original premise from the 60's thru the to the next generation

    A Lost In Space series refresh, much like Star Trek, could work as the Robinson family never made it back to earth or their supposed destination of Alpha Centauri. The show creator, Irwin Allen, had other great movies including the original Poseidon Adventure going on after the series ended.


    Most young folks don't know, this was Irwin Allen at his best, Lost In Space was just his beginning

    AMoonHawk saidLost in Space was black an white with no great sound effects .... I mean really ... is Blue-Ray really necessary? icon_rolleyes.gif



    It was only B&W in the first year, much like Gilligan's Island was in its first year, we were transitioning from B&W to color during this time period

    No great sound effects? Irwin Allen was a sound effects master, Lost In Space, other shows and all his movies have tremendous amount of sound effects that were not digitally made on a sound board. Most of his sounds were made with ordinary, hand held items and recorded with a live microphone. Not like todays synthesizer.

    Yes, Blu Ray, is there anything else that comes close?

    I am a fan, looking forward to this release

    Nostalgia! I was introduced to Irwin Allen's Lost in Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, & The Time Tunnel in elementary school, watching reruns. Those series were great productions.
