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.

Tv Season 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.

Critic Reviews for Lost in Space Season 1

All Critics (75) | Top Critics (24)

"Lost In Space" is a lot more high-tech and serious than its often goofy predecessor. It's still a show about a family of five, last name Robinson, stuck in space.

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.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

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 10-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.

Apr 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Lost in Space didn't have to be very good at all to improve on either the original or the movie. Still, it's much better than might have been expected.

Overall a really fun series! It kept a family friendly vibe while still bringing the drama and the humour.

Feb 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An attempt to resurrect camp - without the camp. The resulting show has lost all of its fun quirkiness but doesn't offer viewers a new reason to watch instead.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

For a show with such a large assortment of bright spots, its dimmer parts become all the more irritating.

full of twists and tense action providing proof that reboots can work

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Lost in Space is still unlike Star Trek, and seems destined to play second-fiddle, unless it gets a writing revolution.

Audience Reviews for Lost in Space: Season 1

    The story is good, but some "actors" definitely shouldn't be there... "Acting" of Mina Sundwall ("daughter with a bad character") will make you switch to something else. For some reason, most of the female characters have strange arrogant attitude and the rest of the characters don't even notice that. It distracts from the story and spoils the whole impression.

    A really great show. Dr Smith is one of my favourite all time baddies, captures the camp villainary of the original, but adding so much more emotional complexity. And all of the characters I find myself routing for in their own ways.

    The productions are high, but the character development is uneven and at times borders on ridiculous. The overused tropes pulled in are lazy and boring. I appreciate keeping elements of the original series alive but dumbing down every male character and making them mentally adolescent at best is so stupid. The one dimensionality of Dr. West and the unbearable idiocy of the other characters interactions with her totally detract from what could be a decent series. I am a fan of Parker Posie but this is a skidmark on a strong career, every one of her scenes is cringe - they are so hamfisted and unnecessary. I stopped watching mid-episode multiple times because I couldn't take the stupidity of the writing. If you have to work that hard to create some drama or a comedic moment you don't have either. This series could use a whole hell of lot more humor and better science. If it were a comedic series the science stretch could be palpable but the series takes itself oh so seriously it is crushed by its own weight. Sometime it feels like the writers and producers took every trope and every idea that has been used in sci-fi and nighttime serial drama, every teen romance, sans humor, and have thrown it all against the wall hoping it would all create a wonderful mosaic...I'm not sure anything sticks. Use the talented actors better (help them find tone and pace build more dimension to their characters), use the wonderful robot better (it's obvious it has more dimension), find the tone and the series' voice (hopefully one with a bit more comedy). Still, when it's working, it's intriguing and the actors hold interest.

    Outstanding remake. Worth watching with nice tech

    I grew up watching the original Lost in Space TV series, so I went in with some pre-conceived ideas about the show. I was totally pleased with the updated and fresh perspective that this new series took with the characters and story line. Definitely a winner, looking forward to many more seasons.
  • Feb 22, 2020
    Lost in Space is definitely not an exciting TV series. But it does entertain us with an intersting space-themed story, love for one's family, and the desire to live.
  • Feb 21, 2020
    Love this show! It has so much heart. I feel a part of the family.
  • Feb 21, 2020
    SciFi comedy is not an easy genre to get right, but Lost in Space does a superb job of it. Unfortunately, this is not volontary. From paper-thin character development to cliched stories, it's the latest example of what has been going wrong in SciFi. If the music and the lens flares are not a dead give away, I don't know what is. Don't let your intelligence be offended, do yourself a favour and sit this one out.

    Terrible acting, cliche plot, & uncharismatic characters.

    Very good introduction season. Very well acted.
