Oh I remember the days growing up and watching the original Lost In Space .  Premiering  Sept 15, 1965 the show started out a serious look of the Robinson family as they struggle to survive in a strange and often dangerous universe. Over time the show slowly turned into more of a comedy in my opinion. I spent may hours after school watching the reruns.

Then in 1998 the series was adapted into a major motion picture which starred Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc and Mimi Rogers. The film was not well received and considered a finical success. I think I was one of the few that did enjoy the movie.

Now Netflix has come along and updated and gave the show a modern re imagining.  So far from the trailer released it does looking like the kind of show it was meant to be.

While this is the first look at Netflix’s epic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series here on Earth, “Lost in Space” has already been made available for viewing in space. Netflix provided NASA with access to the pilot episode, which was transmitted 12 days ago to the International Space Station for astronauts to view during their leisure time

Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. 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 (Parker Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.

One thought on “Netflix – Lost In Space”

  1. My worry in this remake is actually the actor who plays Will Robinson. Bill Mumy’s Will was a strong character from the very beginning. I would hate to see this show’s Will as anything less.

    Next, the voice of the robot in the upcoming version sounds more old-fashioned than the 1960s version. Let’s face it, current technology is working on making machines sound human. Despite its looks, the original robot sounded human. The new one sounds like an original series Cylon.
