The first few episodes of the series were very serious, not the jokey and sometimes embarrassing types of episodes that made up the bulk of the series. Dr. Smith was a full-blown villain, evil and dangerous. The stories weren't great, but at least they didn't involve silly stuff like fat singing opera divas.

Perhaps if the studio had taken the series more seriously then Lost in Space would have become a sci-fi legend like Star Trek, spawning spin-offs that span the decades between the 1960s and today.

Speaking of seriousness, it mentions overpopulation repeatedly, something that countless SF stories didn't do then (even TZ and OL only did that a few times). And for that matter, most of them probably stopped going into it when the subject stopped being trendy and started being laughed at (!) as some kind of "quaint" ' 60s and early ' 70s subject, so good for this LOST IN SPACE pilot.

It's nice to see Ford Rainey as the president. Even though he's only in it for about one minute, they definitely found the right character actor for that part.
