Netflix Got It Right. Lost In Space Is Awesome
I think one of the best things about sci-fi shows are reboots that get it right. Battlestar Galactica and 12 Monkeys are two perfect example. They took the essential pieces that made the originals good and built something new and exciting. I think I’d add Netflix’s Lost In Space to that list. If you’ve seen the cheesy 1965 tv show or the 1998 movie, you get the idea of the show. The 2018 version takes the premise of a family getting lost on their way to a new world, and expands on the plot. Season 1 is nice and compact, focusing less on planet hopping and dealing with the aftermath of the family’s mishap. Great casting and great pacing make the 10 episode binge fly by. Bravo, Netflix!
