I'm three episodes in and still sitting on the fence.
I find the characters intensely annoying...the 'family' dysfunctional. Blimey, I work on a remote site and had to undergo a day of psych testing to see if I'd fit. This argumentative, non team-playing crew would have no hope of a start here!
And don't start me on the broken laws of physics! Due to rapidly falling atmospheric temperature, a hole of water freezes in seconds while they stare at it happening, bare-faced with barely a hint of frosty breath or crystallised eyelash?
Ok, Ok,...I'll suspend belief and watch a bit longer but I'm not holding much hope...
Jonathan Harris as Dr Zachary Smith was the best of the human characters. The robot however was the star!

Well....I started watching the original Lost In Space television series on Monday evening, after I got home (I've been away and on the move for most of the past week-and-a-half).
“Oh boy, oh boy” (I pinched that saying from Will Robinson in the series) it sure is dated compare to what we are used to in television programmes today. And some of their ideas about future technology (remember that it aired from 1965 to 1968 and was set in the late-1990s) is actually rather hilarious. As is their near encouter with a close-moving comet in the second episode.
However, on watching it I can actually remember the original episodes. As I didn't watch it all the way through back in the 1960s and missed the occasional episode of the seasons I watched, I'm going to persevere and watch all 83 episodes, but at a rather leisurely pace, aiming to watch around four episdes per week.
