OMG!!! This was horrible! The weakest of the Krofft Shows
This was one of the weakest shows of its day and believe me it is excruciatingly bad. The most absurd show to ever grace from the minds of Sid and Marty Krofft. The show "The Lost Saucer" was one of the weakest links as part of one of the segments of "The Krofft Supershows" which was part of ABC-TV's Sunshine Saturday Morning schedule. However,this version was the sorriest out of the bunch and it was right up there with other weaker Krofft shows of the period which include "Far Out Space Nuts" to name a few that came around during the mid-1970's Getting back to "The Lost Saucer",who in their right state of mind would have thought of casting Ruth Buzzi(of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In fame)and of all people Jim Nabors(yeah,you heard right,Gomer Pyle)as two repulsive alien robots who kidnapped or you might say abducted two replusively annoying suburban kids from their beloved home and goes with them in there spaceship were they are lost beyond compare.The aliens themselves were even stupidier than the kids but in all aspects,the aliens didn't know what in the hell they were doing as their ship goes outside the orbits of Earth and ends up going toward the uncharted reaches of outer space. Why did the kids ended up with them on this ship is one thing,and being "lost in space" is another. The series ended up shown on the outskirts of Sunday mornings where it was finally gotten rid of permanently in the summer of 1977,after 10 episodes.
