Trivia

Hawking radiation is a theoretical type of thermal electromagnetic radiation that astrophysicists predict is emitted by quantum singularities (black holes). The theory was first posited by Professor Stephen Hawking and physicist Jacob Bekenstein who theorized that whenever stellar matter enters the event horizon (the boundary of a singularity where its gravitational pull becomes so strong nothing can escape, not even light) its interaction with the singularity's quantum/gravitational field would produce a unique type of radiation. Figuring out how to detect Hawking radiation would help locate singularities far more accurately than current methods; however as of 2018 no confirmed cases of Hawking radiation have been found out in interstellar space.

Goofs

At one point, Maureen fills a weather balloon to ascend to 350,000 (above 65 miles) altitude. Although it is filled with helium, the balloon should have expanded its volume (according to Boyle's Law) by many times, but it still shows its original size, even at that altitude. Even if they use some kind of as yet undeveloped textile, even at 25 miles, the balloon would have expanded to a hundred times its original size. See more »

Modern Mythology

In another comment, rsvp321 writes, "Going to their new planet, did they not anticipate at least hunting for food?! Or, do they have enough dehydrated food to last indefinitely? They even have a 3D printer to make futuristic weapons, but instead they prefer to hide behind aluminum picnic tables when attacked. lol"

It's easy to criticize from an armchair; it's a bit more taxing to read between the lines. It's easy to be negative but challenging to remain openminded and positive.

AFAICT, the colonists were going to Alpha Centauri, which already had infrastructure. In this universe, I think they planned on growing their own food there, or perhaps the colonists who were already there (at least two waves, if not more) had already identified edible species of flora and fauna. Food, security and shelter would have been the first systems established by the original colonists. It was meant to be a routine voyage, and there was no reason to think they would not reach their destination. Sure, a bit short sighted on contingency planning, but that's the way I read the story. After all, we humans make mistakes, and thrive on our ingenuity.

Is this show meant to be entertainment or a user's guide for colonizing a new planet? Could it possibly be an exploration of potential risks and unintended consequences? Perhaps it's a comparison between loyalty versus self-service, individuality versus the collective? Maybe it's an examination of the consequences of trust and deceit? Possibly it's an examination of the scope of responsibility - to the individual, to family, to a planet? It seems to be something of a coming of age story, both for a young boy, for an exotic robot, and for our species.

Maybe it's modern mythology.

I was a little kid when the first Lost in Space aired. The whole family watched it together; I thought it was pretty cool, though I'm sure if I saw it again I'd find it lacking. This version is very exciting, well filmed, has good character development, and is much more complex than the original.

I like it.
