“Handsome, pretty handsome, Dr. Smith!” (Contest–Plus, Open Contests!)
Tuesday, February 8th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Jennifer Beyer!

So, I’ve been bingeing all the Star Trek series. I’d never watched Next Generation with Picard, so I started with that. Now, I’m watching Deep Space Nine. There’s an episode where one of my 60s heartthrob, James Darren, plays a Las Vegas lounge singer. If you’re of a certain age, you might remember him as Moondoggie in the Gidget movies or one of the doctors trapped traveling through time in The Time Tunnel.

That episode got me thinking about my favorite sci-fi shows from my childhood. The original Star Trek was, of course, my favorite. I had a major crush on Captain Kirk. Another show I loved was Lost in Space. While I thought the dad was hot (after all, he was Zorro before that!), my favorite character was Dr. Smith. Which got me thinking about my absolute favorite episode of Lost in Space. I did an internet search to find that green girl! I wanted to be her. The trippy song, the way she was so enamored with Dr. Smith. You can watch the Green Girl clips below, although, I think the voices aren’t the original actors because the robot and Dr. Smith don’t sound the same as I remember. Doesn’t matter. I still love this! And now, I’m putting the original Lost in Space on my “Binge Next” list!

    I loved watching THE TIME TUNNEL – mostly because of James Darren.

    I’m not sure it’s “vintage” but Farscape is one of my all-time favorites. I like it so much that I purchased the boxed set. It even has a puppet character created by Jim Henson.

    Probably showing my age here, but I loved Buck Rogers in the 25th century & the original Battlestar Galatica series’ on TV, also the first Star Wars movies…..

    You know, I NEED to watch Farscape. But it sure was nice watching James Darren play a repeating secondary character on Deep Space Nine. Such a trip down memory lane.
