Curse You, TV Guide

All Hail Eris #208: Heck, the first episode of Lost in Space was semi-serious. I didn't believe it until somebody made me watch it, and it wasn't the robo-sexual campfest of the later seasons....

I remember watching the first episode, and thinking, wow, there's hope for good SF on TV, even with the modified Forbidden Planet robot! Then it degenerated into silly camp... in the 2nd episode!

I was so disappointed that, when TV Guide talked about this upcoming show called Star Trek and said it would be like Lost in Space, I failed to catch much of the first year of Trek.

Curse you, TV Guide. Curse you, too, poofty Dr. Zachary Smith!
