    And here I was HOPING that you were a small child of 5-7, but, once again, proven wrong. You're going into the negative digits on respect here. I mean, a small child enjoying it is one thing, a young teen enjoying it and watching religiously is extremely disturbing.

    The cheesiness of Lost in Space is so extreme that it's hard to believe it made it on the air as long as it did. For some reason my parents bought them all on VHS, and while the original-original pilot showed promise, the cannon pilot didn't, and it went downhill from there...fast. I couldn't even endure them after that.

    Oops! I researched the date of the series, and it was on in 1965 when I was 9 years old.

    Actually, it got pretty bad even for me toward the end. I liked Dr. Smith as a bad guy at the start of the series, but then he turned into comic relief in the latter half of the series. The series turned into slapstick, and even at age 9-10 I registered that it was getting tiresome. I didn't miss it when it was taken off the air.

    Toonia changed hers from the pretty naked butt, to mating frogs and it's just gone downhill from there.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
