Will you be watching the new Lost in Space?

Font Size:

That’s right, Netflix has remade the much loved 60’s TV series, with the same characters but all new faces.

So far, we can see a few changes have been made. Dr Smith is now mysterious, intense woman who’s great under pressure and won’t be making many jokes. The Robot has had a major upgrade – no more slinky arms and foil, it’s now massive, humanoid and has its own complicated personality and back story.

If you’re a Lost in Space fan then it might be time to settle down on the couch this winter and see if they’ve done it justice. Will you be watching? And if so, let us know what you thought!

Here’s a look at Lost in Space, then and now.

    I Have watched the First season and have been really impressed with more realistic people and less stupidity,I did like the old series but the new one is ten times better! Cant wait for season 2 to happen!

    It is so slow! Lots of ‘meaningful’ conversations between parents and kids. Not much actually happens in any episode. The new robot is the best character, and it only has one line – you can guess what that is. The new doctor, a woman who seems to have nothing to do except sneak around, only has one set of clothes, and a surprising number of people all from the same mother ship do not recognise her! Sort of Home and Away in a bay far, far away.

      Hehe I shall have watch an episode.
      I used to love sci fi as a kid but my Dad would walk in and say,”That’s rubbish!” and turn it off.
      So while I have control of the computer these days I will give it a go.
      I rather liked Salvation. Its a good sci fi too.

    Excellent viewing! The science and engineering feats by both males and females is excellent, and my two grandsons are enthralled by all the gadgetry, and problem solving! The new, female ‘ Dr’, imposter, is an interesting counterpoint in skulduggery, set against the close knit Robinson family. Looking forward to a second season! ????????
