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 (72) | Top Critics (18)

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.

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.

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.

The concept of a family being lost in space is one that flows with potential, providing fertile ground for a complex, multi-layered story with genuine jeopardy - which this new arrival does achieve, but only to a point.
