Any series/movie
Mine is from the original. Now, I was born in 1958. LIS was my introduction to SFF (I watched things like Astroboy, but he was a robot the way Bugs was a rabbit). I realized that this "Four days in Space" missions might lead to something real. But my favorite scene was the one where Wally Cox was the ETI. Bill calls him an 'alien'. Wally replies "I'm not an alien, this is my home planet. You're the aliens!". I remember thinking "OF COURSE!".

I think my favorite is when Robby the Robot encounters the Lost in Space robot given the shared design history.

The encounter with the one eyed Giant. Even today, that it still looks quite good. :cool:

Duh I forgot about that one!
I had a model kit of it.

The one about the frozen dog I remembered too.

The crash of the Jupiter 2. That too still impresses. :cool:

Any involving Dr.Smith and the robot. Other than Baldrick from Blackadder 1, I don't know of any character who has changed quite so drastically from their original appearance. "You nickel-plate nincompoop!" His array of insults for the robot where a delight to watch, and sometimes the robot gave back as good as he got.

I LOVE Lost in Space. Watched it in the 60s. So, all of the above (Smith/Robot/Will scenes were always the best). I have so many images/scenes flash through my mind, when considering this series. Here are a few of my all-time faves:

“Crush, Kill, Destroy!” Those androids! The larger ones were so menacing.
~

There’s one scene where Will, I think, has been kidnapped by an alien, and is on its ship. (Huge, open space... dark background, lots of bric-a-brac that must be negotiated, to move around.) The alien (for nefarious reasons) tempts Will to leave his family, offers to send him back to his own time, and home town, on Earth. It leads him to some device- wall panel, giant TV screen? - that shows Will, in real-time, scenes of everyday life in that home town, as part of the temptation. Will is moved, tempted. (Not sure I have all the details correct.) I recall it as being very poignant.
~

From the first season (I think… it was black and white, and before the Robinsons crash-landed): there is an alien siren who lives in space (great make-up, great - I think - aluminum-like, shiny costume, with some cool headgear) who floats to the ship’s portholes and calls to Smith… coos at him, can’t quite remember. And Smith is tempted to open the ship to her.
~

The long shots of the giant cyclops-creature menacing the glass-shelled travel buggy.
~

The scene on-planet where all of the animals escape from the alien zoo ship.

So many more. I've had the series on DVD for probably ten years without watching it again... might just have remedy that. I always thought this was a visually striking series. Great thread!
