I saw reruns of the original show. It just infuriated me how they kept the villain around instead of stranding him.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

3 eps in. It’s BSG reboot meets Lost In Space.
It’s not horrible but it’s not great. I dig the robot, Judy is pretty awesome. Doctor Smith is cool all the rest pretty forgettable.
One thing that bugs me about modern TV/Film is the forced multi/sex/cultural take. I have NO problems with either when the story is written that way. I just have an issue when it comes across as this show does as .... check box 35a ... add heroic female lead. Check box 53c add multicultural lead. Etc. etc.
I honestly feel as though it takes away from a strong female lead or strong ethnic lead or strong non heterosexual lead etc. if it feels like they were forced into the story vs feeling like they simply belong there.
For example in Buffy The Vampire Slayer I loved Tara and what she eventually drove Willow to become. It felt real/honest. The last season however added a lesbian slayer that felt so shoehorned check Box 82a.
I guess I don’t care about the race, sex, orientation or religion of a character, I just want it to feel real/natural not some tacked in PC gotta have. I get the tacked in PC gotta have in this reboot.

I watched the first episode and had no desire to press on.
I watched the whole season and liked it. Parker Posey did a good job playing Dr. Smith. I really hated her (character).
The no guns thing was annoying, and unrealistic PC crap. However, the show was good enough to overlook that. The robot was cool.
I hope they do a second season. I'll watch it.

Wife and I are about half way through it, we are both liking it.
As noted, Parker Posey does a great job as Dr Smith and her ability to make the character so despicable..
Also, the Penny character probably has, on a whole, the best lines of all. (Those one liners)
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Watched the first three episodes and so far I'm liking it well enough to watch some more. Not sure I like their take on the West character yet though and there are a couple other niggling character issues but going to give the season a chance. Robot is definitely cool and the visuals and landscape do look great in 4K Dolby Vision!

I watched another three episodes and stand by my earlier thoughts, decent but although Parker Posey plays the part very well I HATE the character(we're supposed to) I now forward though those scenes. I really have issues with supposedly intelligent people being easily manipulated by someone saying a few words. I think Penny is my favorite character, a normal teenager.
It's kids like you, who make this bus late.
!!! POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT !!!
Yea, so that's the stupid, irritating, illogical thing. They have a 3D printer that can print a gun, but mom doesn't like guns, so she won't let them make any. It's really left-wing PC BS.
There's some big ugly creatures on the planet, but instead of printing up some guns, they make spears and clubs. Perfectly logical.
No, no laser guns.
Loyalty Above All Else, Except Honor
I've watched all 10 episodes, I can remember weapons on the original, apparently space is safer in the future!
Yeah, no bias here at all.
Still, overall, this show isn't bad, it just defies logic on this particular point...
Definite spoiler alert
I lost all my weapons in a boating, umm, accident.

haven't got past episode 3,
the robot does print a firearm, and gives it to Will,,,
so there is at least one on board

It's a fun show.
1) If you viscerally objected to Starbuck being recast as a woman, just skip this show. It's not for you.
2) Penny has some of the best lines in the show. She's a great character!
3) They don't explicitly say Judy is Maureen's daughter from a previous relationship until episode 8 or 9, but it's inferred several times. It's not PC crap, it's life. Get over yourselves.
4) Parker Posey is perfect as Dr. Smith. There isn't a single scene with her, in which you won't wish for her untimely and gruesome demise.
I really enjoyed the unique Robot angle. I'm excited for the next season.
|the truth will set you free|
Judy is Remmy’s daughter from when Mom was on House of Cards.

I finished ep 5 last night, and #4 is spot on,
not sure what the makeup folks did, but she truly looks and acts like someone you would push out the airlock in space
and I chuckled a bit, not sure why , when West named the chicken Debbie
Wow, I had forgotten that June Lockhart (Timmie's mother in "Lassie") was in the original Lost In Space.
