Lost in Space

Critics Consensus

Lost in Space's production values are ambitious enough to attract sci-fi adventure fans, while the story's large heart adds an emotional anchor to all the deep space derring-do.

Tv Season Info

Lost in Space stars TOBY STEPHENS (Black Sails, Die Another Day) as John Robinson, and MOLLY PARKER (House of Cards, Deadwood) as Maureen Robinson, the family's parental leaders who are struggling with their estranged relationship in the midst of trying to keep their family safe. As the Robinson kids, TAYLOR RUSSELL (Falling Skies) is the strong-willed and confident Judy, MINA SUNDWALL (Maggie's Plan, Freeheld) is the quick-witted and definitive middle-child Penny, and MAX JENKINS (Sense8, Betrayal) is the curious and sensitive Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robotic alien being. 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 played by PARKER POSEY (Café Society, Mascot, A Mighty Wind), is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West, played by IGNACIO SERRICCHIO (Bones, The Wedding Ringer), is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.

Critic Reviews for Lost in Space Season 1

All Critics (74) | Top Critics (21)

At this stage of the game, Lost in Space is promising; with closer attention to tone it could be a future classic a couple of seasons down the track.

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

Top Critic

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.

Apr 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Lost in Space didn't have to be very good at all to improve on either the original or the movie. Still, it's much better than might have been expected.

The concept of a family being lost in space is one that flows with potential, providing fertile ground for a complex, multi-layered story with genuine jeopardy - which this new arrival does achieve, but only to a point.

Apr 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If Lost in Space gets a second season - which seems likely, given the sunk costs Netflix has expended on set construction alone - here's hoping Parker Posey's snaky Doctor Smith and Molly Parker's suffer-no-fools Maureen get more to do.

Lost in Space is still unlike Star Trek, and seems destined to play second-fiddle, unless it gets a writing revolution.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

An attempt to resurrect camp - without the camp. The resulting show has lost all of its fun quirkiness but doesn't offer viewers a new reason to watch instead.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

For a show with such a large assortment of bright spots, its dimmer parts become all the more irritating.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

full of twists and tense action providing proof that reboots can work

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show is worth watching, and it definitely has potential moving forward, but it has hurdles to overcome in season two, if there's a season two.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall a really fun series! It kept a family friendly vibe while still bringing the drama and the humour.

Audience Reviews for Lost in Space: Season 1

  • Nov 14, 2019
    Seriously? The special effects were OK, but the show bends over backwards to put Mommy in charge of the family and exploration team, and to show just how well this works. See, who needs Daddy to lead the team? This works fine until Mommy needs a big strong man to lift something, or go into the cave first, or save them all when the monsters attack. The premise may work for Dora the Explora, where there's no family, but it falls apart - and is no fun to watch - when put into practice in the real world with a family to lead and a world to conquer.

    Totally wrong physics and bad shience, but it is promising.

    Oh My God, This Is SOOOOO Bad!!!! I want to punch every single person who gave this 2 or more stars right in the face!!! Comparing this to BSG???? Are you kidding me???? The one thing the reimagining of Lost In Space has in common with the original is the utterly ludicrous, hackneyed, schlocky writing that couldn't keep a third-grader from scratching his head and saying "WTF???". If you're favorite hat says MAGA on it, you'll find this show thrilling and thought-provoking. Otherwise ..... Spoilers ahead assholes ... BEWARE Let's just examine a few of the legion of examples of how dumb this show is. So the robot kills dozens of people on the Resolute, cripples the ship, and puts the lives of all the surviving crew and colonists in jeopardy. Will and the robot save each other, and Will makes this mental connection with him, learning what the robot had done ... and Will sides with the robot????? So then Will's sisters find out ... the robot is a mass murderer. Their solution? Help Will hide the robot in a cave ... AND NOT TELL ANYONE, of course. On the way to hide the robot, they run across other survivors. Their solution? HIDE!!! Oh, except one straggler sees them. VJ. VJ sees the robot. VJ freaks out. Penny steals his poem and blackmails him with it, swearing him to silence. So VJ sees other survivors of the utter catastrophe the Jupiter mission has become, and he sees the murderous robot that caused that catastrophe by KILLING A BUNCH OF PEOPLE, but the fear of having his poetry revealed to the other survivors cows him into silence. Oh My God I could go on and on. Anybody else find it just a little convenient that they're going through virgin forest on an unpopulated planet, but there conveniently just so happen to be perfectly flat roads through the thickets that go everywhere they want to go without a single bump? Good Grief! I'm currently on episode 7. I'm out of my pills, so I'm pretty sure I'n not going to be able to resist the compulsion to finish this thing.

    It's a bit slow in places but the characters are likeable and the twists and turns interesting (I enjoyed how science-y it was) so overall it was a good time and I'm looking forward to the second season.

    Really enjoyed this psychological sci-fi. Fantastic series.

    What the frig dude, why isnt there gardevoir? Very upset, bad movie, die.

    Oh Lord. The people suck. Makes hard to be invested in them when the protagonists are idiotic and just petty
  • May 24, 2019
    Exciting, visually stunning, and surprisingly heartfelt, Lost in Space ambitiously revamps its source material for a new century almost totally successfully, if not for some grown-up casting flubs.
  • Mar 29, 2019
    The Show blow its budget in the first few episodes. After that you notice the robot has less CGI and its actually a guy in a suit. the evil doctor over plays the evil part so its really poor choice of actress. Gets really stupid after a few episodes

    Am old enough to remember the original 'Lost' with June Lockhart and Guy Williams as a black and white TV series in the 60's. Netflix has done an excellent job in bringing the "Space Family Robinson" into the 21st Century. Lots of great special-effects and filmed in North Vancouver; the background -- beautiful Seymour Valley -- is well-adapted to the series. The villain of the series, Dr. Smith (brilliantly played by Parker Posey) is a perfect foil to the new Robinson family. Action scenes are great! All-in-all this is simply very, very good cinema . 'Danger, danger' you will be hooked!
