Lost in Space 2018

The 10-episode first season launches April 13 on NETFLIX and it looks alright :up:

Here's the latest trailer.


IMDB

A topic of its own deservedly.

Interesting trivia? I never knew the robot had designation as such so went looking..

Quote:
The robot identified itself as such in episode S02E03 "The Ghost Planet".

When asked to identify itself by the Supreme Prototype, the robot responded with his full model and assignment:

LEADER: Identify yourself.

WILL: I'm Will Robinson.

LEADER: Silence! Only the robot. The Earth creature will remain at attention.

LEADER: Repeat. Identify yourself.

B-9: Robot, model B-9, designed and computerized as a mechanized electronic aid for Earth voyagers engaged in astral expeditions.


As far as I know, this is the only time the name "B-9" was ever actually used on-screen. It quickly stuck with fans, however, and the robot has been known as B-9 ever since.

Source

Interestingly too, here's the connection to another classic robot from the 1956 sci-fi movie classic Forbidden Planet named Robby the Robot. Surely you must have seen the movie.

Obituary: Beloved Lost in Space robot creator Robert Kinoshita dies aged 100


Forbidden Planet on the IMDB

The last time I saw Lost in Space it looked like this:

And it wasn't good.

Let's hope this is better.

I too thought that movie wasn't that flash. Hey, you've see some of the old original series Eraser haven't you?

Here to whet...

Anyone watched yet?

I saw an advertisement on TV last night saying it was available here from the 19th but apparently it has been out elsewhere since 13 April.

Yeah, I've watched it.
I enjoyed it, fore sure. Not the best thing on telly, but most definitely not the worst either.

Parker Posey's take on Dr. Smith is definitely a standout of the show, and she makes the character enjoyably dislikeable.
She's a sociopathic, narcissistic grifter, and the performance is as much about her body language as it is about the character's actions. Wild hair, a vicious slash of a mouth, nervously darting eyes and her unrestrained, unjustifiably confident posture all serve to make the character eminently untrustable.

And the effects are very pretty too.

Thanks Mat Linnett :up: for the comment as I have avoided the online critique pages to date.
Do I understand correctly that all episodes are available?
