    No secret here...
    Lost In Space is my absolute childhood
    favorite TV show. I loved it more than Star
    Trek
    .
    I had given up hope that Fox would release this
    show to DVD. It was great to hear from Peter that
    we will probably see it next year. Let's hope the
    studio releases the entire three years of episodes
    in season sets.

    Of the two I'm much more interested in "Time Tunnel", which I believe is only available on eBay LDs at a very high price. After the first year I thought "Lost in Space" got very silly & I quickly lost interest & quit watching it.

    Ron:
    You can always buy the Japanese laserdisc box sets. They only sell for several hundred dollars on ebay! [​IMG] Never thought I'd say it, but I'm glad knowing the value of some of these Japanese LD sets is going to plummet next year. I've been trying to get the Millennium Japanese LD box sets forever, but they always sell for too much $$$. Now I'm going to hold out. According to Peter, Season 1 will be released in 2003, and subsequent seasons should be release if Season 1 sells well.

    I'm interested in both of these but I am actually more interested in Land of the Giants and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. No announcement on those yet [​IMG]

    I heard they were working on a made for TV movie with the origional cast ( except for Guy Williams, who passed away some time ago )but I think that project is off because of the passing of Johnathan Harris ( DR. Smith ) who, I saw at the chiller theater convention last year. He didn't look to be in great shape then. I would have loved to see a re-make with the origional cast.

    Great news about the "Time Tunnel" on DVD,hopefully it'll be a full season set. The early B&W "Lost in Space" episodes will be desirable too but I'm not going near that giant vegetable episode from the last season...
    What were they thinking? [​IMG]

    Yeahh I'd pick up at least the 1st season of LIS, I remember watching the show right before getting on the bus for school so I would miss the last 30 min of thhe shows. Still remember the Great ep where will and Dr Smith has to travel inside the Robot who has grown as big as a House.
