View All Photos Lost in Space 's production values are ambitious enough to attract sci-fi adventure fans, while the story's large heart adds an emotional anchor to all the deep space derring-do. At this stage of the game, Lost in Space is promising; with closer attention to tone it could be a future classic a couple of seasons down the track. If Lost in Space gets a second season - which seems likely, given the sunk costs Netflix has expended on set construction alone - here's hoping Parker Posey's snaky Doctor Smith and Molly Parker's suffer-no-fools Maureen get more to do.
Lost in Space loves its science, but it hasn't advanced enough to prove all that memorable in the here and now.
But this part series isn't nearly as ambitious or thought-provoking as the "Battlestar Galactica" update, which had more on its mind than just cashing in on nostalgia. Lost in Space didn't have to be very good at all to improve on either the original or the movie.
Taylor Russell as Judy Robinson. Lost in Space Over-reliance on flashbacks, unlikable characters, liberally sprinkled PC and leftist ideology here and there, vague to non-existent resemblance with the original show or the movie - all of that would've been bad enough to sink this completely, but none of it holds the candle to the main problem of this remake: The way they bring the personalities and essences of the characters, the technology, and the story of the original to today's audience's expectations of that tech AND special effects, is just wonderful. With life support also removed, the pilot now needs a spacesuit and will need to withstand extreme G-forces. This was an inventive twist on a great show. Meanwhile, Smith locates the destroyed robot, but cannot get it to reassemble.
Still, it's much better than might have been expected. The concept of a family being lost in space is one that flows with potential, providing fertile ground for a complex, multi-layered story with genuine jeopardy - which this new arrival does achieve, but only to a point.
The show is worth watching, and it definitely has potential moving forward, but it has hurdles to overcome in season two, if there's a season two. Lost in Space is still unlike Star Trek, and seems destined to play second-fiddle, unless it gets a writing revolution.
What was once a rollicking family-based sci-fi adventure story is now a dreary family drama with sci-fi trappings about people who really don't seem to like each other very much There are no featured audience reviews yet.
