I didn't remember that Abbott got killed in the episode or that the carrot was a return to earth either! It really is about time I got to rewatching the series again but I'm wondering if I'll have any duds in the DVDs too? JB
Yeah he got shot and lived long enough to see the documents burned, which was important to him, so he was able to die knowing he succeeded in his mission! I was glad to see episodes 4-5 play well, after trying 3 DVD players its safe to see episode 3 after about halfway is unwatchable.
I need to check my LOTG DVDs, there were problems with the double layer, double sided DVDs from day one. I forget what the movie was but I had a double sided disk actually delaminate as I was taking out of the package, it was brand new and never been played. Universal seems to have had the most problems with it for some reason. My entire set of "Buck Rogers" that I bought 12 years ago is unwatchable, about half of the episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" freeze up. I noticed that many disc manufacturers have stopped using the double sided discs.

I had trouble with an episode of Voyage a month back! (The Amphibians) from season one and I was lucky enough to pick up a replacement set for about £6 from someone on Amazon! The new one played fine but get this, the duff disc played okay on our other set downstairs! Weird isn't it? JB

HaHaHa I also turn up in The Galaxy Gift and one tiny appearance in the third season too! Look out for The Weird World, Farf, it's one of those episodes we were talking about a few days ago if you get my drift? JB
I had heard that Irwin didn't have casting power on some of the cast [investors maybe ?] Betty,Barry & Fitzhugh seem weak. Wanna read something scarier than giant spiders,read about Stefan Arngrim,he is said to continually raped his sister Allison,over many years.He is gaunt now-rumoured Herion related.
The 2nd season the Spindrift interior is COMPLETELY changed-cockpit and cabin! No reason given.I like in the 1st year there's hammocks in the cabin for the girls to sleep.
Irwin didn't want the cast to change clothes-ever. Someone in the studio convinced him that they had luggage...
Since you're doing a FANTASTIC job on relateing the plots,i'll chime in here and there on trivia. Re: the spaceship lights,it seems they flash red when something is amiss,battered by a cat,or whatever-this isn't written in stone!
The preying mantis did it for me-I hate the things so Dan's reaction would've been mine!
Kurt [Fitzhugh] was cornered by Jonathan Harris during filming Pay the Piper.Harris said "You're doing me,and you're doing it badly." Kurt later remarked to the press after cancellation:"it was a stupid show anyway." Bet Irwin loved that !
No it wasn't Steve that married Valerie, Farf, it was Mark! And Stefan really did that? Jeez! I'm friends with him on FB even though I've not really had any contact with him! I'm friends with Steve too (Gary Conway) James Darren who was Tony Newman in The Time Tunnel as well! Francine York was very nice too, I've spoken to quite a few stars on FB JB
Ridiculous thing was that Kagan had been on the giant's planet for years so was it overly optimistic that he thought his spaceship would still be in one piece in a giant laboratory? I'd have thought they'd have been at the thing as soon as they got it and as for the spider, surely it would have died after all those years? JB
