The Robinsons find a planet run by young people.

Some of my previous LIS reviews have been a little critical of the campy episodes but I hope this review proves that I have a sense of humour and that LIS could be very funny when it tried hard enough!

This is a campy episode where John Robinson (Guy Williams) is more involved so it is a bit different to the Smith-dominated comedy shows.

Also, the casting of the young people is perfect, the kid with that snot-nosed look on his face seems born for the role.

The amusing "groovy" dialogue will linger in your memory long after a viewing and there is even some nice effects footage of the Jupiter 2 to keep the sci-fi element going.

The Promised Planet sort of reminds me of a third season 1966 Batman episode where Louie The Lilac (Milton Berle) meets the flower children...that was a classic as well!
