Lost in Space is a series unlike so many other science fiction shows, especially for its time. It aired between 1965 and 1968, and while it was originally conceived as a sort of Swiss Family Robinson in space, it eventually morphed into an engaging, if campy, sci-fi adventure. It was later given a feature film treatment, but it couldn't hold a candle to what made the original series great.
Following the Robinson family as they explored the outer reaches of space in the Jupiter 2, the Irwin Allen special was a cluster of bizarre narratives and creepy space freaks that wouldn't have looked out of place in an episode of Star Trek. With each new landing, the Robinsons hoped they'd be able to make their way back home to planet Earth once more -- hence the title, Lost in Space.
Now we're looking at an entire reboot for the show via Netflix -- how will it fare in the grand scheme of things? Can it out-weird the weirdness that Lost in Space perfected? To answer this question, we must become acquainted with the bizarre qualities some of the best Lost in Space episodes possessed. Here are some of the weirdest shows the series ever came up with.
