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 (74) | Top Critics (21)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Apr 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

    Really enjoyed this psychological sci-fi. Fantastic series.

    What the frig dude, why isnt there gardevoir? Very upset, bad movie, die.
  • Jun 16, 2019
    Oh Lord. The people suck. Makes hard to be invested in them when the protagonists are idiotic and just petty
  • May 24, 2019
    Exciting, visually stunning, and surprisingly heartfelt, Lost in Space ambitiously revamps its source material for a new century almost totally successfully, if not for some grown-up casting flubs.

    The Show blow its budget in the first few episodes. After that you notice the robot has less CGI and its actually a guy in a suit. the evil doctor over plays the evil part so its really poor choice of actress. Gets really stupid after a few episodes
  • Mar 19, 2019
    The first 2 episodes were great, then, it became Cheesy, predictable, frustrating. 7 or 8 episodes would have been enough.
  • Mar 12, 2019
    Its pretty good i'm excited for season 2 :)

    Worth watching for sure...visually appealing AND family friendly (yay no sex for the young ones watching) It's rare that we find a show that everyone is able to watch and enjoy. Myself, husband, grandma, daughter, tween and teen cousins, aunt and uncle all are fans and looking forward to season 2

    I used to watch the classic series when I was a kid, so I really wanted to give this a chance, but it's bad. They really should have renamed it too, since they're not so much "lost in space" as they are "stranded on a planet". The writing is bad, the acting is worse and the conflicts are contrived. They make a big deal about not having the range to send a signal to the other ships, then we find out they have weather balloons that can take them into the stratosphere and the family of geniuses never thinks to set up a relay to boost their range.

    I actually liked this series. It stumbled at the start, presenting wooden characters and the inevitable kid in danger that brings in the macguffin of the robot (we were all waiting for the robot). But once the required danger was cleared and all characters were allowed to meet each other, the story began to expand. The writers were able to explore themes of isolation through the view of the Robinson family. Except, instead of stuck in a familiar, yet dangerous, place, the family is completely alone on a new planet. Teenage angst seeps in and rebellion from members of the family are explored in an extreme setting. Parker Posey���s Dr. Smith is played with such conniving duplicity, I found myself actually getting sucked into her lies. Which is a nice change from the original series and adds an element of darkness. Dr. Scott is desperate and manipulative and Parker Posey perfectly cast in this role. All in all, I found the question of the origin of the robot to be a nice addition for later seasons, as well as its dedication to Will only. There can be much done with this character. So, I���m glad for a second season. I hope the writers explore the questions they brought up in the first season. the story continued, interesting aspects of each character was exposed. No, the character development was not professional, but I did enjoy the the hint of turmoil the writers brought to
