Storyline

Fifteen years after his daring raid turned the tide of an extraterrestrial invasion of the Earth, Col. John Robinson is retired from active service with grand ceremony. Hoping to repair damaged relationships with his estranged family, he volunteers them to take part in a multi-family colonization project bound for a newly-discovered star system. En route, the massive mothership is attacked by the same aliens he defeated so many years before. As alien forces board the ship, John and pilot Major Don West detach the Robinsons' landing pod and escape with the family through a nearby wormhole, becoming lost in space. Written by balkaster

The head of the original Robot can be seen behind Will Robinson, when his family came to see the robot he was building. See more »

Goofs

When Will and David are threatened to get blown out into space, they seem to be suspended in mid-air, just grabbing some handle. However, Will's cables are clearly visible in two or three shots. The wires and the temporary music tracks would have been removed if this pilot had been picked up. See more »

Will I live long enough to see somebody do this show right?
28 April 2013 | by Thomas_VeilSee all my reviews

The wait continues for those who love those early episodes of "Lost in Space" from 1965 and want more.

First we watched the original series slowly degenerate into camp. Then we got the 1998 theatrical film which started promisingly and then, like the series, got silly. And now this pilot, in which the first half consists of whining characters we never really learn to care about, and the second half is a formulaic alien invasion story.

Where is the sense of wonder here that permeated the original series? Douglas Petrie's script, in attempt to add character depth to what many people consider a ridiculous show, just falls flat. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't send a family who can't get their you-know-what together on a major space mission. And John Woo's direction, especially in the action-packed second half of the show, proceeds at breakneck speed with no sense of pacing. Like too many films these days, it's fastfastfast and never pauses to take a breath.

The antagonists in this pilot were a particularly poor choice. Unlike Dr. Smith, who was interesting because you always wanted to know what was going on in that scheming mind of his, these villains have absolutely no sense of subtlety. When the show demands a crafty J. R. Ewing-type, we get instead marauding critters out of a 1950s horror film.

And did you notice -- so much of the focus in this pilot is on the kids! Gee, what went wrong with the original series? Oh yeah, that's right!

Kevin Burns, whose "Time Tunnel" pilot was much better but still resembled the original in little besides nomenclature, really needs to turn over the duties of reviving Irwin Allen TV series to someone who understands them better. "Lost in Space" could be a great show again, and it deserves better than this.
