Final LIS episode fit only for the junk heap
28 July 2017 | by mikeantoineSee all my reviews

Why did this episode not appeal to me?

Let me count the ways. First, the accent and personality of the guest "villain" were difficult to digest. Every time he spoke in his thick French accent, I found myself gasping for air, or trying to complete his sentences.

Maureen and John Robinson were treated as third rate extras, Maureen's only contribution a couple of lines about the food supply being wiped out by a "rust blight."

Professor Robinson has one short scene below decks... Other shots of him are old colorized scenes when he was flying on the jet pack looking for Penny from season 1.

What's worse is that there is no resolution to their situation....did they ever find food? Did they ever get off the planet? Did anyone figure out Maureen was missing? Does the absence of the Bloop have anything to do with their food shortage?

Sad to see a fun series end so abruptly.
