Lost in Space (1998) (part 1 of 6)

First of all, I’d like to thank Entertainment Weekly for including this DVD in a special five-pack, so that I didn’t have to say to a video store clerk, “I’d like to rent Lost in Space.” I was wondering how they would condense an entire TV series into a two-hour movie, and as it turns out, we basically get two or three episodes’ worth of material stretched out unbearably. Also, there is definitely some inverse quality law at work in the DVD industry, because the Lost in Space disc is amazing. My favorite section is all about the original show, and includes bios and interviews with cast and crewmembers. Okay, enough praise, let’s bash the movie!

    Hey great review, but i wanted to point out one little thing.
    The Global Sedition isn’t located on Earth, they have their own planet, it was that dessert waste alnd you saw in the hologram scene. Other than that, love this movie, but still a good review.
