Was I the only one running around screaming after this, maybe … I dunno? All I know is I am all aboard the hype train for this series. I was a fan of the 1960’s series in which Dr. John Robinson (Guy Williams), his wife Dr. Maureen Robinson (June Lockhart) and their children Judy (Marta Kristen), Penny (Angela Cartwright) and Will (Bill Mumy) leave Earth to investigate a planet suitable for human life. Joining the Robinsons on their joureny are Major Don West (Mark Goddard), pilot of the Jupiter 2 Spaceship. The Robot, who has mistakenly been called Robby the Robot, and the man who caused the Robinson family to become “Lost”, Dr. Zachary Smith (Johnathan Harris). the series ran for 3 years from 1965 – 1968 and was cancelled w/o ever resolving what would become of the Robinsons, Major West or Dr. Smith. In 1998 a feature fimlm was made Starring William Hurt as Dr. Robinson, Matt Leblanc as Major West, Mimi Rogers as Maureen Robinson, and Gary Oldman as Dr Smith.
the new cast of the Netflix Original series will be Tony Stephens – John Robinson, Molly Parker – Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russel – Judy, Mina Sundwall – Penny, Max Jenkins – Will, Ignacio Serricchio – Major West, and Parker Posey – Dr. Smith. The 10 episode Lost in Space series premieres on Netflix April 13. 2018
