Lost In Space: Watch Will Robinson, Dr. Smith and The Robot Get Lost Again!

October 17, 2009
When the Lost in Space movie came out in 1998, it bore little resemblance to the original sci-fi series. There was little involvement by the original cast and it bombed at the box office. One of the positive things to come out of the studio's promotion was a TV special that paid homage to the original series. Hosted by John Larroquette, Lost in Space Forever presents a retrospective of the classic TV show and includes some little-seen footage from the show's history. June Lockart, Mark Goddard, Marta Kristen, Angela Cartwright, Bill Mumy, and Jonathan Harris are all interviewed and, though Guy Williams had passed away earlier in the year, his original screen test is included. The special would be a typical lightweight retrospective except for the fact that the producers went out of their way to make it extra special for the diehard fans.
