TV Review: Lost in Space (Season 1)
Share This Article:
Netflix's swanky reboot of Lost in Space is a lot of things, all at once. There are many missing pieces within the story and many unanswered questions, but still it has the potential to be something impressive. As in the original series (aired in the 1960s), the story begins with the arrival of the Robinson family on a planet which is quite similar to ours, and charts their fight for survival as their spacecraft Jupiter crashes in the middle of nowhere. In the first two episodes, you may witness the redundancy of the dialogue between the characters and the somewhat unrealistic performances of the actors (in their defense, most of them haven't much experience in the sci-fi genre) however, things begin to improve and the roles start to fit into place as the story progresses. The one tiny exception is Penny (Mina Sundwall) whose character at the beginning is not so well built. She makes jokes in the most awkward of moments and appears to be far too cheerful for the situation she and her family are in (almost as if it is a normal thing that your planet to be on the verge of dying and you're left careening through space...)
