I like the series.
I don't like most of the over the top Dr Smith episodes, and despite everyone hating the carrot episode, it was amusing to and pretty cool to see Smith do the sublime thing.
The original show didn't contain Dr Smith , and I think it was a mistake to bring him in. He wanted to stay in the show and mutated the character into a buffoon- and that sorta limited the show. He wouldn't of been kept around if he was just plain evil - cause he would of been tossed off the ship.
The science behind the writing made me cringe. Going past the speed of light was possible when Smith traded off controls for things , but they routinely sailed thru galaxies and had to fear mobile supernovas. And for the first season, they sorta forgot about the orbit of the planet they were on.
So if they fixed it. Made it into a family survival thing without "oh the pain, the pain", kept some science in it, made sure to actually follow a plot (Think how awesome "Lost" would of been if they had a storyline predetermined), and kept the "make it cute for kids so they buy toys" out f it?
I think it would be an awesome show.
I do have all the DVDs for the original show - store-bought. So I am a fan.
