Lost in Space

Visit to a Hostile Planet - S3-E2

New this month Factual error: On the MTG radio broadcast the announcer states it is 3:15am on Saturday, 17 October 1947. 17 October 1947 fell on a Friday.

The Dream Monster - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Don and Dr Smith are stealing Sesmar's control unit, look closely at the base of the electronic arch - Raddion is hidden from sight but the careful eye will see his golden feet.

Welcome Stranger - S1-E7

Other mistake: In one of the opening scenes with Will and Dr Smith, the Robot's power pack is clearly missing.

Visit to a Hostile Planet - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When the guy shoots the Robinson Robot it leaves a big bullet hole on the front. In the next shot we see the Robinson Robot turning around and the bullet hole is gone.

There Were Giants in the Earth - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: The Robot's lights wink out for a few seconds as it disables the force field.

Deadliest of the Species - S3-E11

Other mistake: When the Robot is returning to his beloved with the energizer, he gets near the right side of the shot and abruptly vanishes rather than rolling off camera normally.

Revolt of the Androids - S2-E24

Revealing mistake: Watch closely the two scenes involving the Robot;(1) When the Omega 17 IDAK battles with the Robot you will see pieces of his plastic collar continually. (2) After Verda and the Alpha IDAK disappear you will notice the Robot's lower shutter falls out.

Condemned of Space - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Will looks through a window of the prison spaceship they crash landed on, a prisoner's hand moves on the staff he's holding, but he is supposed to be frozen and unable to move. (00:32:10)

Show generally

Factual error: The Robinsons exceeded the speed of light due to impurities in chemical rocket fuel. No chemical rocket fuel comes remotely close to the energy content needed to even approach the speed of light. That would require exotic fuels like antimatter. By Einstein's theory of Special Relativity it is impossible to exceed the speed of light with any form of rocket propulsion. Faster than light travel and time travel might be possible with the warped spacetime of Einstein's general theory of relativity and phenomena such as wormholes. For plausibility the opening scene should have been an encounter with a wormhole.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Jupiter 2 is flying it is a single level ship, when it is on the ground, its a two level ship and in one episode it was even a three level ship.

Will Robinson: This is the Jupiter 2, identify yourself, please.
