Two episodes in, and I’m rather enjoying Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot. It jumps in feet first, though I wasn’t quite sure about some flashbacks employed in the first episode. It is based on the Irwin episode No Place To Hide. Inspired might be a more appropriate description.

The pieces aren’t in place yet, and it seems to have borrowed a few things from the movie and the unaired pilot that was directed by John Woo. There are some fun takes on aspects of the original show. Keep your eyes peeled on the Dr Smith intro which is deadly and self serving.

Shout out also for Taylor Russell as Judy Robinson. She’s not just a singing spacegirl and I’m intrigued to see where the story goes even if it involves another flashback or two.
