There are many good things about Netflix's expensive remake of the 1960s cult favourite... But crisp storytelling is not one of its virtues.

[The robot] revelation provides much of the tension and conflict.

But the show's secret weapon is the casting of Parker Posey, the queen of 1990s indie movies like "Party Girl," as the traitorous Dr. Smith.
April 20, 2018
Remake of 1960s sci-fi series is classic fun; some violence.

It's not dark, or gritty. It has a little bit of everything: humor, action, aliens, danger, mystery, and plot-holes you can drive a flying saucer through. But you can actually watch it with your kids and parents and have a good time. And I'm here for that

The new Lost In Space offers a more complex take on the characters, a vivid visual aesthetic and a pilot that throws us into the action along with the Space Family Robinson, expanding the scope of the story and using flashbacks to fill us in on everyone..

But the new Lost in Space is best when it's being itself. The grace notes, the moments of bonding and the subtle, socially conscious subtext all create a strong identity, and a persuasive voice.
April 19, 2018
A slick new space adventure with great modern family dynamics and light touches of science fiction.
April 19, 2018
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.
April 18, 2018
Mostly this new version, basically as family friendly as the original, provides the audience with a taste of nostalgia without over serving them.
April 18, 2018
But with the addition of strong production values, the grit of good stuntwork in hardscrabble locations, a fine cast, a hatful of decent directors, here is a buoyant commitment to Saturday-morning serial, edge-of-the-sofa thrill for thrill's abundant sake
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

When most series and reboots choose to go gritty and appeal to a more adult audience, Lost In Space heads in the opposite direction and delivers a fun, family friendly sci-fi adventure...
April 16, 2018
Actually, there's something kind of great about taking a terrible show and turning it into a good one. And this Lost in Space is good.

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.
April 16, 2018
The real pleasure of "Lost in Space," beyond some competently handled action, are the appealing performances of Ms. Russell, Ms. Sundvall and Mr. Jenkins as the Robinson children. If you decide to take the trip, they're excellent company.
April 13, 2018
It takes till episode 3 to get a really solid sense, but Ms. Posey's potential for chaos seems as limitless as the space-time through which the Robinsons get lost.
April 13, 2018
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.

April 13, 2018
Some episodes do feel too long at a one-hour length, but it's heartwarming fun, so brace yourselves for that.
April 13, 2018
The kick-off to Lost in Space does a great job of reimagining the world of the Robinsons with more of a focus on the family at the core
April 13, 2018
At its best, specifically the crackling final two episodes, Lost in Space holds its own with the best Netflix has to offer.
