The Film Doctor's Eighth Anniversary

Eight years ago, the Film Doctor started posting reviews, including this one concerning Lost in Space (1998) starring William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Heather Graham, and Gary Oldman

Marvel at the sight, as single cast member, Johnathan Harris, bares the burden of a dreary cast and script to produce an absolute classic of TV, for season one of lost in space. I did see the film once but it was odd experience because it was during an analysis of DCT compression and the then, rather primitive capabilities of domestic DVD equipment. So it's hard to get immersed, when the viewing experience is continually interrupted by shuffling through the narrative to compare screen grabs. Someone did quip on the Harris role going to Gary Oldman because of his performance in Prick up your Ears. While I do see the association, I think it was one that was probably made after a session arranging white lines on a glass coffee table.

Thanks, DeadSpiderEye. I was not a huge fan of the TV show, but I was expecting the movie to be better. I find it interesting how such highly regarded stars once performed in such tepid studio vehicles.

Rahul Agarwal, Thanks! It's great to have such a longstanding reader.
