| ...and the final straw was when Jonathan "Dr. Smith" Harris appeared as a giant "Pied Piper" type character. |
Yes, that episode ("Pay the Piper") is in essence, LOTG's "Great Vegetable Rebellion". The series is remarkably even in S1 at least, just a bit repetitive in that the crewmates spend much of their time evading detection, which begins to wear thin by season 2.
Still, with the first volume (presumbably eps. 1-13) there is the sadistic girl who teases the crew in a 'toy town' (I still see her giggling and flicking matches), the hobo framed for murder and the giant who makes off with the Spindrift spaceship only to become a hapless victim of quicksand. And of course the aforementioned pilot ("The Crash") which has a mini-movie feel and a superb John(ny) Williams score. Some solid fun here as only Mr. Allen could deliver it.
