Fan quiz: How well do you know the first episode of Lost in Space?

Can you remember the details of the Jupiter 2's maiden voyage?


Thanks to MeTV fan Christopher Seeley from Killeen, Texas, for submitting this quiz! Do you have a great idea for a quiz? Share it with us!

The far-off future of the Nineties. A family boards the Jupiter 2 with the intention of setting up a colony in a distant star system, only to be thrown off-course by sabotage gone wrong.

This was TV viewers' first introduction to the Robinson family. "The Reluctant Stowaway" was the first episode of Lost in Space, not counting the original unused pilot. Over the next three seasons, the Irwin Allen show would become a cultural icon, still remembered today — even if the oft-quoted "danger, Will Robinson!" only was actually said once on the show.

How well do you know the first adventure of the Robinson family?

Got all but the person who played the president. I figured it was probably somebody famous.

I used to watch Lost In Space in the late 60s/early 70s--it was on in the afternoon 5 days a week and I was in grade school (I remember playing Lost In Space on the monkey bars at recess). Since that was some forty-five years ago, let's just say my score was embarrassing and leave it there.

13/13. I'm old enough to be around when L.I.S. aired for the first time on CBS on Wednesday nights but they never showed the pilot. I do remember watching the pilot for the first time when they ran the reruns on WGN channel 9 Chicago in the late 60s.

13/13. I have been watching since this series originally aired when I was a kid and still love them.

Last week there was a Lost In Space reference on the Young Sheldon TV series. Sheldon was seated a bus going to his first sci-fi convention when a Dr. Zachary Smith fan boarded in full costume. It was a great scene played by the character perfectly.
Yes! I saw that 👏

That guy did a great Dr. Smith. I liked when he saw Sheldon and said, "Oh the pain". Excellent.
My one problem was the mistake they made when the other guy on the bus said, "At least we didn't steal our robot from "Forbidden Planet". The writer obviously didn't do his homework. Robby the Robot was from Forbidden Planet NOT Robot B9 from Lost in Space. While they were both created by the same guy they are certainly not the same robot. Robby was actually in two episodes of Lost in Space.

The Robinsons the worst parents in the Universe they have seen Smith use their children as human shields multiple times. Also if an unrelated adult male takes that much interest in taking a boy that age on camping trips um nufsaid
