Trivia

While walking away from the handcuffed "Dr. Smith", Maureen calls her "Jessica Harris... or whoever you are." Her name in the first few episodes and in the credits is "June Harris" - a nod to June Lockhart and Jonathan Harris, the original Maureen Robinson and Dr. Smith, respectively. See more »

Goofs

Shortly after Maureen & Penny fall over the waterfall, there's a shot of John looking over the edge of the waterfall at them. In that shot, you can see the remains of the broken mast, which actually breaks just after this scene. It's a duplicate of the same shot used later, after the mast breaks. See more »

Quotes

Don West: [angry, still lying in the infirmary] This is how it normally works. When you launch, someone announces, "Hey, we're about to take-off, so you might wanna strap in"! Or, for example, "Hey, if you gotta go pee-pee, you might wanna do it now, because it's gonna be a while"!

The strong start to the second season of "Lost In Space" continued with this episode.

Wedged on the edge of the artificial trench that the family found last week, their preparations for charging the ship via the lightning shower are plunged into chaos when Maureen (Molly Parker) and Penny (Mina Sundwell) go over the waterfall and are trapped hundreds of feet below the family. This gives them a chance to work through Penny's issues with being the useless child. The rest of the family have their own problems, alongside rescuing the pair, with seemingly sentient kelp that bonds to the Jupiter, and infects Don (Ignacio Serrichhio) with their toxin.

I think, since the last episode I might have had a bit of a breakthrough. It might have been something I read in one of the reviews, I can't remember, but I've come to realise that the show is "about" the family falling into peril every week and complaining that it's repetitive in that nature is missing the point. Accepting that, it's either good or bad within that conceit and the show was, for me mostly good this week. The effects were decent, acting was fine and the plot . . mostly . . made sense, I'm a little shaky on how, exactly, they survived the drop into the trench but how they got out seemed to track, logically.

It was funny again too, I don't remember the first season having this much humour and I like the sparky flirty interplay between June and Don - even if it contains a certain amount of blackmail.

It's not suddenly become "Must See TV" or anything like that, but with this second episode I'm still not hating any of the family and I'm still entertained, which is enough for now.
