Lost in Space (2018): Season 1


TV Series Info :

Lost in Space stars TOBY STEPHENS (Black Sails, Die Another Day) as John Robinson, and MOLLY PARKER (House of Cards, Deadwood) as Maureen Robinson, the family's parental leaders who are struggling with their estranged relationship in the midst of trying to keep their family safe. As the Robinson kids, TAYLOR RUSSELL (Falling Skies) is the strong-willed and confident Judy, MINA SUNDWALL (Maggie's Plan, Freeheld) is the quick-witted and definitive middle-child Penny, and MAX JENKINS (Sense8, Betrayal) is the curious and sensitive Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robotic alien being. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith played by PARKER POSEY (Café Society, Mascot, A Mighty Wind), is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West, played by IGNACIO SERRICCHIO (Bones, The Wedding Ringer), is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.

My Review :

Congratulations to Netflix; this is the Lost in Space that fans like me have always wanted. The original (1965-68) was always fun, but was stuck within the pre-Apollo 60s optimism. This latest instalment, however strips back the story and keeps the skeleton but adds new meat. Dr Smith/June Harris (Parker Posey) is a masterstroke if casting: finally a villainous, sinister antagonist that plays for real stakes, unlike Jonathan Harris' campy one-note performance. John and Maureen Smith (Toby Stephens and Molly Parker, respectively) are finally three-dimensional. They have real problems. This new updated series is magnificent. I have a special place in my heart for the original, however this new version makes great use of CGI and wonderful, sharp writing that allows non sci-fi types to come to the show and enjoy it. Great sci-fi is allegory to the present human condition. Lost in Space (2018) is fresh, vibrant and stimulating. Bring on Season Two!
