It's a series? If so sounds cool. It's like a toned down, family level Mass Effect Andromeda.
Didn't clicked the trailer nor read the posts itt but my money is on Diversity in Space.
It looks like Netflix didn't spare any expense for that. I never watched the original show or the 90s movie, but I will definitely watch this.
Looks better than the teaser. Will give it a chance, but looks like it has hostile environment that doesn't need to make sense because it's not earth going on.
The original had the same plot hole. They were supposed to be colonists, but were comprised of one family, an accidental stowaway, and the pilot Don West. The family had two little kids and a hot 19 year old daughter who was clearly destined to become Don West's primary objective, but it was pretty unclear how they were supposed to continue a colony after that.
The new trailer shows they were part of a larger ship.
And actually as part of a colony the "SJW/diversity" actually makes sense as it provides more genetic diversity.
I used to love Lost in Space. My favourite episode was the one where they came across Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet and he and the family’s Robot fought iirc.
Is the pilot in this? I didn’t see him in the trailer.
I’ll definitely watch this.
Looks good. Will give it a try.
Was already in, but it looks even better than the first trailer. I hope they planet hop and don’t stay on one fucked up planet the entire season.
Glad Parker Posey is still getting work too. She brings quality.
Considering the ship apparently is not supposed to be an interstellar vessel on its own, I am guessing that the star system where they end up has multiple inhabited planets.
That is because they are making a big deal out of getting off that particular planet, but that only makes sense in a ship like that if they have another place to go within interplanetary travel distance. Otherwise why would you leave an inhabitable planet just to die in space?
And since they're the 24th colonist group or something, then there must be already a human colony in the system.
Here's the first mildly spoilery review of the first season that I've come across
The New Lost in Space Has a Lot of Potential But Needs a Little More Time to Find Itself
These are the parts I found most interesting:
Spoiler: spoilers from review
When we first meet the Robinsons in the series pilot, they’re playing a harmless game of Go Fish aboard the Jupiter II. However, we soon realize things are amiss. They’re all in their spacesuits, there’s no gravity, and hell has been unleashed right outside their door. Dozens of identical ships are caught in a firestorm, with their colony space station under attack by an unknown threat (which doesn’t stay unknown for long). The Robinsons soon collide with the wreckage and find themselves crashing down onto the planet below. They’re lost, aren’t they?
Well, they may be lost, but they’re not alone. In this version of the story, the Robinsons are part of a colony, and there are plenty of other surviving families on the planet—some you’ll like, others you’ll wish could be pushed out of an airlock. However, the first couple of episodes are the strongest, as they focus entirely on the Robinson family after they crash-land on the planet and are forced to do whatever it takes to survive. It’s terrifying, intense, and unpredictable—with the added bonus of giving us a rapid-fire introduction to this new Robinson family.

While Will Robinson shines, however, Lost in Space’s other most iconic character, Dr. Smith (played by Parker Posey), doesn’t. This is not an acting problem—Posey brings her A-game to everything she’s in—it’s the writing. I’m not going to give away Dr. Smith’s origin story, but suffice to say it’s very different from the original series and movie, and it doesn’t mesh with her behavior. She’s often making choices that don’t make sense and require us to fill in a lot of gaps to justify, yet they magically end up working in her favor anyway. And for what end? Not much, really, just your basic run-of-the-mill “I want to live” storyline. This would’ve been okay if we’d gotten more camp, but Posey mostly plays it straight... at least until the very end, which not surprisingly was the moment I started liking her a bit more.
It seems to bee fairly good for a first season. If this review is accurate it means that they came out of the gate better than many shows in their first season.
Although, I have to wonder...
...are the enemies attacking the space station rival humans or aliens?
I'm inclined to think humans or the Robinsons wouldn't be as quick to take in the Alien Robot as they seem to be.
Trying to watch this and episode 1 is so slow.
I'm really not feeling the flashbacks.
This show sucks. Too much forced PC garbage.
This show is TERRIBLE
I know nothing of the original series, other than Robbie The Robot catchphrases.
Checked out the pilot. It was shockingly great. Good cast, an insane production value, and a damn fine start to the series. I could nitpick some things, but it's not worth it. The show was way, WAY better than I imagined it would be. Now, the pilot was directed by Neil Marshall, so they're setting up some lofty expectations from here on out, but it certainly got off on the right foot.
I already like it more than "Altered Carbon". We'll see how it goes from here on out though. As for the pilot though...
Not watching unless it has banana beef.
I’m 3 episodes in and I’m really enjoying it. Production is terrific.
You would be wrong
