Scenes where Penny, Judy and Maureen encounter a giant alien life-form on the planet they crash-land on was cut from the film but appear in some of the additional footage included in the DVD release. This footage includes:

More dialogue between John and Don before they get attacked by "future robot".
The inside of the "time bubble" was originally sunny and orange, but was changed to cold and blue in final version.
More dialogue between Smith, Don, John, and Judy in the "Hydroponics" garden on the "Proteus" after finding Blawp.
Several scenes in the time bubble were cut including: scenes showing different time portals including "THUNDER PORTAL" and "SNOW PORTAL"
Well, I for one was a little surprise at the low rating this movie got.
Now, I don't think it was IMDb Top 250 material, not by far but it still should have been up in the "6"s. First let's look at the basic for the movie. Lost in Space was a television show from 1965 that was very low budget. I. Allen had to work from a shoestring and it showed. The show was a "kiddies" show, something that the kids enjoyed while Mom and Dad was able to snicker at the goofiness of it, (but not too loudly or the kids might get mad). Then the show progress into one that centered around three characters, that of Will Robinson, Dr. Smith, and the Robot. Mr. And Mrs. Robinson, Major West, and the girls were just so much window dressing and fodder. This is what the director of the movie, Lost In Space, had to work with. Either he kept as close to the original show as he could or he struck out in a totally different direction, such as what happen when they made Wanted Dead Or Alive for the big screen. It's not high drama, but then neither was the original show. Comparing it to the TV show, I believe that the director keep to the same spirit and I say it's not a bad rendering.
