Alrighty then I’m in. My body is ready!! This time around it seems that the robot is not part of the original crew but an alien lifeform Will Robinson discovers after they get “lost”. I gotta admit when i saw the robot it looked like some kind of advance scout for an invading alien force. This thing looks and sounds meanacing especially when it says that famous catch-phrase “Danger, Will Robinson!”, part of me expected it to attack after saying it.
We also get a few scenes of Parker Posey who plays the role of Dr. Smith, the prerson responsible for for sabotaging the Jupiter-2 causing the family to become lost in the first place. In the orginal series Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris, or Gary Oldman in the 1998 movie) reprograms the Robot to destroy vital ship systems hours after it launches from Earth. However he gets stuck onbaord the ship and launches with the Robinsons. This time around it seems that there may be an accident that damages the ship and knocks it off course, whether Dr. Smith is responsible for this “accident” remains to be seen.
Lost in Space stars TOBY STEPHENS (Black Sails, Die Another Day) as John Robinson, and MOLLY PARKER (House of Cards, Deadwood) as Maureen Robinson. As the Robinson kids, TAYLOR RUSSELL (Falling Skies) is the strong-willed and confident Judy, MINA SUNDWALL (Maggie’s Plan, Freeheld) is the quick-witted and definitive middle-child Penny, and MAX JENKINS (Sense8, Betrayal) is the curious and sensitive Will Robinson. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception, the unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith played by PARKER POSEY (Café Society, Mascots, A Mighty Wind) and the inadvertently charming Don West, played by IGNACIO SERRICCHIO (Bones, The Wedding Ringer).
