Uh, in what alternate universe? LiS was known as what most people expected from sci-fi (silly escapist fantasy) particularly back in the day. At no point was it ever considered "the gold standard" for believable science fiction.

But seriously, Zap, you were kidding about LIS being the gold standard for believable sci-fi. Right?

Yes, I was kidding. I'm fond of LIS, but that gold standard bit was a joke.

The theory that the tree shadows on both shows were deliberate sounds right. There's even a saying today: when you have a deficiency or shortcoming (i.e., the small size of an indoor planet set), don't try to hide it. Hang a lantern on it and make it into a signature. Balding men shave their heads completely now. The actor who needs glasses wears the biggest, heavy black frames anybody ever saw.
