Audience Reviews for Lost in Space: Season 1

  • Jan 09, 2023
    It is entertaining. The characters have development. The plot stumbles along. But the characters are annoying like characters from horror shows, too stupid to survive in the real world, yet somehow we're supposed to believe they are geniuses with survival training.

    Ambitious, souped-up; much better than expected reboot of the classic 60s series; which itself was a reboot of Swiss Family Robinson; (originally called Space Family Robinson). This version essentially grounds the story as a variation on The Exodus; (with traces of Noah's Ark). This has the troubled people of earth fleeing the Earth, in the final stages of Armageddon; as an inter-galactic Robopocolypse pursues them. And that's more or less what the original was about too; although this feels more epic; more streamlined; more serious. The series wisely portrays the Robinsons as part of a caravan; rather than a lone spaceship flying solo. The implausibility of that always hurt the original series; it's much more believable that this was one of many family all flying on a voyage together. The acting is across the board fantastic; and I particularly like what they did with the Dr. Smith character, Parker Posey is perfect for the role. (This Smith is more of a classic villain; much more scarey than the original;not like the bumbling comic relief Jonathan Harris played him in the classic series). Overall recommended.

    This show is full of splodies and bad writing. There is no way in hell these unlikeable characters would ever have been chosen for a program like this. None of the characters even approach the maturity level of an adult. It's like watching a bunch of tweens pretend to have family roles and continue to be mentally unstable children. Seriously the parents would have divorced years ago, the incompetent children would have been taken into foster care and dear old Doctor Smith would have been locked into a high security mental hospital and been given the drugs she needed for her antisocial behavior. It's like the writers wrote the soap opera script before getting the rights to Lost in Space. This series make the awful 1990s movie and 1960s TV show look like Hugo Award winning writing.

    Very good show. I haven't been super impressed by a lot of Netflix shows in the past but this one achieves a lot. It also looks like they spent some money on the sets for this. You feel the connection between Will and the robot.
  • Apr 10, 2022
    It's good, but not great.

    Danger Will Robinson...wonder if they paid a highly known actor to say that line like they did Vin Diesel for I am Groot with buckets of money. Each season is progressively better then the last with higher production values and the acting got better too, however with long periods of time between each season, the growth of the children is very noticeable between seasons. With all Netflix shows, they are usually lucky to pass the first season so while it disappointed many fans, it ended with 3 seasons but it wrapped up nicely so you aren't left hanging as to what happens next. Highly recommended if you like scifi tv shows set in space and new worlds with some aliens in the mix.

    Could not get past the first 10 minutes of the pilot, acting felt very superficial.
  • Feb 06, 2022
    I've lost this review. I mixed it up with another. 5 stars all the same!
  • Jan 24, 2022
    Writing is poor, plotting is inscrutable, and the (adult) characters lack appeal. I'm skipping to Season II to see if it gets better.
  • Jan 07, 2022
    My voice is just a drop in the bucket, but as I have a negative opinion of this series, I'll add some diversity out there in the void. I did not like this series. (paragraph) I watched up until the death of the robot in the first season, and really just couldn't stomach continuing this journey. It wasn't the death of the robot itself, so much as it was the excessive suspension of disbelief with regard to the characters: completely unbelievable and petty. Power struggles and superficial drama that were ultimately wrapped up neatly in a bow of episode-by-episode cliffhangers--the perfect recipe for stringing an audience along. Just utter nonsense. (paragraph) It felt as though the show creators were forcing me to like certain characters through sheer force of hatred of the other characters. Every time I saw that smug Dr. Smith I seethed hatred, which drove me more into the corner of the Robinsons. Every time I heard the "elected" colony character speak, I shuddered in disgust, which drove me further into the corner of the Robinsons. I felt like cattle being herded into a slaughter. (paragraph) I do not enjoy the contemporary TV strategy of carefully cultivating hatred so much in the audience that I get an emotional orgasm when the subject of my hatred is finally eliminated. It feels dirty and rotten and manipulative. I think psychologists call it Schadenfreude, and I do not think it makes the world a better place--quite the opposite, actually. Yet so many TV dramas abuse this cheap tactic to groom their audience, that it is utterly deplorable. (paragraph) So I gave up. Like a victim of emotional domestic abuse, I left. The robot's needless death was the last straw, and the show's "reality" just shattered before me. I couldn't believe a damn thing after that. (paragraph) In fact, I lost so much respect for the narrative that I simply watched the last ten minutes of the last episode in the series to see who survived. Dr. Smith was redeemed (predictably) and the robot was back, because, of course. What better way to jerk around an audience's emotions than to take away something that they love, and then give it back to them--if only to demonstrate how much power the author has? God complex, much? No, thank you. I refuse to give you that power over me. (paragraph) Amateur hour is over--I'll stick to the classics such as Arthur C Clark and Andy Weir. Even if I have to read the pages of books or listen to the words in an audiobook, at least the characters will be more believable than presenting the story of the Robinsons on the screen of a Director with a penchant for manipulating their audience. (paragraph) Moving along, the special effects were fun, though their hackneyed "what's the worst that could happen in a worst-case scenario" recipe became entirely predictable. The likes of which were only superseded by the Lost TV's series "Two steps forward, one step back" formula for conflict. It was very stressful at first--and not the fun, thrilling kind--but I soon became desensitized by the inevitable, "oh there goes yet another 'unpredictable' weather effect, throwing some imaginary wrench of fate into the destinies of this overly-elaborate crisis-du-jour". I can just imagine the "crisis dartboard" hanging in the office of the writers, or some other corpoRat team-building productivity tool, complete with weekly trust falls and the obligatory "Post-It on a Whiteboard" games. (paragraph) I'm sorry, Netflix, but I'm going back to Audible, soon, I think. "Bye, Felicia," I can already anticipate many of you saying. Goodbye, indeed, Dr. Smith.
