Storyline

Doug and Tony are transported to 1895 to the French penal colony of the Devil's Island, a prison where political and criminal prisoners where sent and never leave, and are mistakenly taken as two runaway prisoners. They try to explain the mistake to the cruel commanders that do not accept their explanations. When the prisoners decide to help the charismatic Captain Alfred Dreyfus to escape, Doug and Tony try to tell them that this is a doomed plan since Dreyfus has never escaped from the hellish island. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great Characters But Cheap Island
4 November 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

It is 1895 and Tony and Doug are on Devil's Island.

The guest characters on Devil's Island are interesting and pleasing to me, so this episode works rather well.

Also, a great bit in the 1968 Tunnel complex.

Lost In Space would re-use the prisoner costumes in a third season hour where Smith and Don are jailed.

The only negative: there are a few episodes of this series where Tony and Doug land on an island (Crack Of Doom, Dead Man's Island, etc) and it is always the same fake looking studiobound island we see here. But all things considered, Devil's Island is rather cool
