Netflix's Lost in Space Season 1 Is a Sci-Fi Marvel
This is a SPOILER-FREE review of the first season of Lost in Space. All 10 episodes will be available to stream on April 13, on Netflix.
Netflix’s Lost in Space is almost the perfect sci-fi family adventure series. But there’s a villain problem that’s difficult to ignore.
Let’s start with the good stuff. Creators Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have done a bang-up job of bringing a 50-year-old franchise into the 21st century, by filling their world with vibrant complex characters.
Hands down, the Robinson family is the show’s strongest attribute. If you’re not familiar with the story, here’s the rundown:
After a large mysterious object called the Christmas Star collides with Earth, humanity is forced to look for a new habitable world to call home. When their mothership, The Resolute, runs into a spacetime disruption, all of the Jupiter ships, including the Robinsons’, are forced to evacuate, which results in their ship crash-landing on an uncharted planet.
