Only in name, and basic premise.

The premise and the ship name and all the main characters are in there but there are many changes to modernise things and for me it really worked and was done really well.

The original theme is even there.

Did anyone else who has seen the first episodes spot the cameo from an original cast member??

Re: Lost In Space

ok so I am all caught up. Funnily enough things seems to have calmed down after the first two eps. There were quite a few things which really bugged me in the first two eps I watched so as this was the first time I was going to bulk-watch something I actually got a pen and some paper ready because I thought I was going to have a massive list of stuff to moan about it. It turns out that there was only one more thing which bugged me which was in ep 3 and that was the doctor killing the security dude in the air lock. Who makes an air lock with such pansy ass safety features that a security officer can go in it and be blown into space. Where are the overrides?

Anyway, it was good and the production quality is very very good. I am glad other survivors/crews were in it as well to help break things up a bit and it will be interesting to see what happens next season. I think it is a very good pilot season and I look forward to them building on the characters next season. I think Judy is great and the dad a waste of space. They need to do some balancing because the dad who I assumed to be captain/mission commander very much takes a back seat in everything and super mum always makes the decisions, knows everything and can do everything.

The one little niggle I have is that it wasn't what I was expecting it to be. I don't know how to explain it but due to the perilous situation they are in I was expecting it to have the same level of intensity as The Expanse.

Re: Lost In Space

Good review.

I am up to episode 6, and whilst mostly enjoying it, I have some annoyances/niggles with fairly basic plot holes, such as
Spoiler: 
people not telling others about major issues (the black hole), kids wandering about unescorted on a strange planet, nobody checking what had happened to the security fence, the fuel issue (the native eels drank it, even inland, but in episode 6 one of the crashed ships will have all of it's fuel still in it), no one checking Doctor Smith is who she says she is (the pro-tem leader would surely have a a personnel database with this info, as they could tell how many, and who, had died), why an 11 year old had to pass tests to go on the trip (what, they would have made the family go without him?), and, as Mon General states, the totally unsafe airlock design.


But beside that, I'll keep watching.

Re: Lost In Space

You have hit the nail on the head Hugh and this is what I mean when I talk about my realism factor. The situation and circumstances and be entirely implausible/fictitious but you ask yourself "in those circumstances what would I do?" Like you said, if you built a security fence and something got through and trashed your last ditch hope at getting off the planet surely you would check it to find out what happened and to make sure nothing else could get through and kill you while you were sleeping. It is just little things like this which make me wish I could be advanced preview person and point these things out and get them to fix it. You are only talking about a few second of extra dialogue to wrap up lose ends. You just need the group leaders to tell someone to go and check out the fence and I would be happy.

But them as much as some of these this are annoying the writers clearly forgot about all those things for plot convenience over anything else. Especially thins like the air lock security guy death.

In terms of the mum being in charge and also the engineer that was clearly a modern equality thing and the dad being a useless bloke as again to do with this. To try and show that he was not a very good dad and can;t handle certain situations.

I think the second season will be more like the Lost in Space we know
