Lost in Space is still unlike Star Trek, and seems destined to play second-fiddle, unless it gets a writing revolution.
June 5, 2018
What was once a rollicking family-based sci-fi adventure story is now a dreary family drama with sci-fi trappings about people who really don't seem to like each other very much...
April 23, 2018
It may not be quite interesting enough for anybody who isn't already a mad fan of the genre, and probably a bit too vanilla even for anybody over the age of 12 who is.
April 18, 2018
In a best-case scenario, Netflix could've ended up with kid-friendly Westworld. Instead, a sugary piece of bubblegum that gets old quickly.

It's difficult to say exactly for whom Netflix paid through the nose to make Lost in Space, but if there's an audience for it, it's likely to be satisfied. I'm not that audience.

Lost in Space loves its science, but it hasn't advanced enough to prove all that memorable in the here and now.

The pacing is a pretty interesting paradox - is it me, or does nothing happen even though the Robinsons almost die at least four times per episode?

Still feels Americanly anodyne, safe, and, even for something aimed at being "family-friendly", tedious to the point of catalepsy, and no amount of CGI can or should fix that.
April 13, 2018
There's just so much padding around all of that. Even when an episode of Lost In Space clocks in at 48 minutes, the events of that episode seem to crawl by.

There's a version of Lost in Space that's very entertaining, but it feels as if the series' producers haven't quite found it yet. They're still chipping away at the giant block of ice, looking for the story within.
April 11, 2018
It suffers from all of the flaws of Netflix's "It's really a 10-hour movie" approach, without even having the early forward momentum or engaging enough characters to compensate.
April 12, 2018
It's a dark, sometimes dreary Lost in Space with great special effects and some interesting character relationships that sit awkwardly alongside predictable plots.
April 10, 2018
A better title for Lost in Space would be Mired in Mediocrity.
April 11, 2018
It's a long slog to the climax, which ends where the series should have begun. The lesson: Space may be infinite, but our time isn't.
April 15, 2018
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.
April 15, 2018
And in envisioning the way humans might interact 30 years from now, Lost in Space imagines male-female relationships as a zero-sum game, where men can expect to pay a price for women's increased opportunities, if only in subtracted IQ points.
April 13, 2018
There's a sense of adventure in Lost in Space, but what could have been more giddy fun has been ejected from the series, and is presumably spinning in orbit somewhere, getting burnt up by the sun.
April 11, 2018
There's nothing inherently wrong with remaking a show from more than 50 years ago, keeping some of the elements but making it a more serious drama. There is something wrong when it's not very interesting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 13, 2018
You can dress up "Lost in Space" in all manner of nifty special effects and clever updates, but the stink of its mediocrity is immediately apparent, as is the clumsiness of its broad intent.
April 13, 2018
I'm afraid that by the time the show introduced space eels, or something that looked like what I imagine an alien eel would look like, Lost in Space had lost me.
