'Space Academy' or "The Return of "Dr. Smith" (Jonathan Harris)
30 March 2001 | by StudlyDRSee all my reviews

I had just been introduced to 'Lost In Space' not to many years earlier {our Portland, Ore. ABC affiliate station aired the Lost in Space series around the mid 1970's. (I think it started showing the series around 1973 or '74)}

When Space Acadamy came along and was airied in the Saturday morning time slot along with other cartoon and kid shows. I think the ABC station in Portland had just stopped showing the 'Lost in Space' series a year or two earlier and I had given up hope of seeing it comeback when along came Space Acadamy. Although I thought the series was a little corny at times (It could've been a really good series if the writers/people in charge had spent a little more time with the stories and/or developed the (Acadamy) series and/or characters a little further). The potential was definately there. I was very grateful to see Jonathan Harris once again, and this time the show he was on wasn't an older TV series that was in reruns, but a current one that was still in production; when I first saw it. It would have been really great if maybe some, if not all, of the cast members from 'Lost in Space', could have made a few guest appearences, and maybe even one or more of them, join the series* to help Jonathan guide the cadets. I was so glad to see Jonathan Harris again and wish things had went much better for the 'Space Academy' series and Jonathan Harris. By John B{oy}
