I keep using the word "Solid" in my episode reviews of this second season of Lost in Space", and that's genuinely how I feel about it. It hasn't suddenly become the best show on TV, or anything like that, but this run (especially compared to how patchy the first one was) has been good, reliable, entertaining television.

Whilst chastising Captain Kamal (Sakina Jaffrey) about risking the life of his daughter, John (Toby Stephens) overhears some radio communications and is whisked away from the Bridge. Concerned about what he heard, he forms an alliance with Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) to find out more. Meanwhile, Maureen and Will (Molly Parker and Maxwell Jenkins) transport the robot back to the rendezvous point which gives Adler (JJ Feild) the chance to assess the machine.

Whilst not perhaps as self-contained as some of the other episodes, this was more directed towards bringing the family back together and uniting them behind a common goal. It was also nice to see a few new dynamics in play, than we've seen before. It's setup, I assume, for how the remaining three episodes are going to shape up to conclude this run. As I said in the first paragraph, it's all good stuff. Performances good, visual effects are excellent, (the stampede was visually pretty strong, even if I'm not sure exactly what the robot actually did) and the plot makes sense - which you haven't always been able to say with this show. Though, as one of my fellow reviewers has pointed out, I'd assumed that the raptor things had eaten the Horses, or at the very least scared them off, only for them to appear unscathed here.

Interesting stuff, shaping up nicely as we're heading towards the conclusion.
