    Yeah, I'm a bit confused as well. Is it really just based on the black daughter? If so...yikes.

    admittedly I'm only up to ep 3 but surely there can't be some drastic SJW switch coming up.

    I'm debating whether to watch it. I see no mention of Dr Smith in this series. I always liked Dr Smith.Will and the Robot getting into trouble in the original series. Is Dr Smith in the new series?

    Yes. Well...sort of.

    I'm not sure about the original series, but there is a Dr. Smith in this. You have to watch the pilot, to see what I mean by "kind of" though.

    Anyone else watching this, the first 10 episodes just dropped. I am up to episode 6, but could not watch episode 4 it had no sound on any of the link I tried. So far its a really entertaining show, my only complaint is the stupid light tower they constructed in 1 episode was poorly designed, looked like a prop in a high school play. They are special effects and visuals are 10/10 for the most part but i could have done a better job on that thing. would reccommend.

    I'm four episodes in and it's pretty good so far. Parker Posey's character is so hate-able.

    I was expecting the show to be just about the family + Posey and that they would be travelling to different worlds every couple of episodes. But after seeing the other dozens of survivors, it's starting to feel like they're going with the small community sci-fi route and they're going to be stuck on that planet for a long time. I still prefer my expectations over the reality.

    This show was the tits.

    Seriously, well done. Loved it start to finish.

    The cast was sensational. Toby Stephens was amazing, going forward I will watch him in anything.

    Man, I was afraid to get my hopes up for this... But it really delivered. It was awesome.

    The writing was excellent. The production was spectacular. The characters were great, and I cared what happened to them. Great chemistry.

    Looking forward to season two, this was a home run.

    It's The Swiss Family Robinson in space.

    A family gets marooned and has adventures.

    This is a difficult show to judge. There's three major problems for me: The pacing, the character of "Dr. Smith", and the look of the robot (it looked great when it wasn't just a guy in a bad looking suit). Cut the season down to 7 episodes, rewrite Dr. Smith, fix the robot, and you're looking at an amazing show.

    Now I didn't watch the original, so I really can't compare it. Some seem to be upset at the character of Dr Smith being a woman, but tbh Posey did a great job acting the material she was given. And spoiler
    she's technically not Dr. Smith
    The character itself was just written very oddly to me. The acting in general is a plus, with strong performances from Posey, Stephens, and Parker.

    The show did a good job setting up the Robinson family dynamic, and following that up with solid character development of Maureen, John, and Judy. Those three were the best written characters imo. Most of the supporting characters are rather bland and boring, with only a couple even being likeable.

    I also liked was how they would keep introducing interesting story elements/twists throughout, which would lead to more interesting questions. This was done all the way to the very end, leaving me wanting to see more.

    The overall production was great. CGI, special effects, practical effects, etc. were all well done.

    I think the way you view Dr. Smith will really sway your opinion of the show.

    6.5/10

    see i am on the fence about smith. on one hand she does a good job looking the part to me i never saw the original so its believable. i just fiished episode 7 and no spoilers, but i was expecting her to get caught up. so far she hasnt, but i suspect when she does shes toast.

    Good show.

    Unfortunately for being the smartest family in the world those dumbass kids were responsible for every single problem faced on the show.

    Few episodes in and enjoying it. Some cheesy bits here and there but that is to be expected.

    She's so fetch.

    Funny you should describe it that way because I immediately though of the Geth when I saw the robot in the new series.

    That's only part of it. I'm all for diversity but changing genders and races of characters who are not originally suppose to be that way is just dumb. I want new tv shows with all black families or all asian families. This is just pandering bs and I'm sick of it.
