    Maybe you are right but I hated him more then her.

    I've now caught up and here's my thoughts after the final episode. This season opens up for me more questions then answers.

    I don't care too much about the science in this show. Who cares about science and accuracy unless you're an anal retentive nerd that stresses over these things all of the time. Now that's out of the way the show was fun. TV is for fun not obsessing over little details.

    Spoiler:
    What a ride? The last four episodes ran thick and fast and I didn't at all see that ending coming. Where the hell did Smith go? She's my hero now. Where the bloody hell did she go? Is she on the Jupiter with those kids?

    Was the colony a sham? I wonder. It seemed freaking elitist that they would only have the "chosen few" go to the colony. I've had my rant.. I guess they couldn't really build a bigger ship, but then this brings up for me far more questions then answers and again we go back to season 1. So we know Hastings was the one Maureen traded info for to get Will on the list. She traded security codes by the look of it.

    Back to those nagging questions. Do we have a timeframe for how long it took to actually build the Resolute? We learn that they built the ship around the navigation core of the alien ship, the thing the robot stands in to guide it. So a lot of things don't make a lot of sense here. How much time passed for the crash and construction of the ship around the alien ship core?

    Yet why even build it? Again I wonder how or why the people on Earth found out about the aliens themselves? Was there prior contact? I think there was.

    If that really was Alpha Centauri at the end something is either really stinky or something bad happened, and what's with the Fortuna?

    I watched this a last weekend, and I was pleased with season 2. Dr. Smith is really a piece of work. However, she continues to surprise me. I'm really hoping we get a season 3.

    I also think that Maxwell Jenkins does a bang up job as Will Robinson.

    So never actually saw this show until last week and I hinged the whole thing. Was really pleasantly surprised. The Robinsons give a unique and welcome dynamic to a sci-fi show. Particularly how it blends the family dynamic together with that old astronaut addage of "failure is not an option". A lot of the problems they face are dealt with by working the problem and coming up with a logical solution And the fun comes when thst solution is balls to the wall crazy too. I find it awesome that so many aspects of the show should be ridiculous and cringy or just breaking suspension of disbelief still manage to work. The relationship between Will and the Robot sounds silly on paper and yet it works. The Robinsons somehow always having the solution should get old and tiresome and yet it doesn't. Don West's best friend is a chicken... I mean... on a script that's blatantly stupid and yet with that cast and that production team it somehow just works. All the characters are amazing and larger than life and yet so wonderfully human.
    Also I gotta say that the design of the Jupiter ships is so simple and yet it looks so good. I can kinda see where they took a few design choices from the 90's movie but made it just all round better. In fact I can see a lot of little chosen facets from the movie that they decided to use but done in the way that the movie really should have gone with (although I don't hate on that movie nearly as much as some people do it was still pretty bad. )
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    I loved the chariot racing through the corridors on the ship.

    Oh Frak no, it just dawned on me where the last Season Finale will take us. I fear a storyline from the Movie is coming and that means my Arachnophobia will be kicked into high gear. As if the robots werent bad enough.

    You also know what that means for Dr. Smith in the next season. I can only predict her redemption arc continuing and almost completing when the unavoidable happens bringing us into yet another Season. Though I somehow doubt they are going to deal with the issue of the destroyed planet and the ship for the whole Season. So I am anxious to see what they got for us besides that.

    I have a soft spot for the 1998 movie, they tried to make something good and you can see potential there but I blamed the writers for how it comes off on screen.

    I wonder if we will get space spiders or maybe they find a very familiar old ship on a planet somewhere with its crew in freezing tubes, and it ties into the old series without being explicit.

    So I haven't tuned into this yet. Is it worth a watch through? I was finishing up The Expanse and Man in High Castle first.

    It's definitely more family friendly then The Expanse but then it's a totally different kind of show. It's good if you like fast moving TV that doesn't really have quiet moments.

    The Robinsons are a bad luck magnet but they are fun.

    Don and Penny are my favourites.

    It is most definatly going to be the first choice here. Its so obvious that even I caught it. Just saying, the horror bait just for the spiders alone is enough to sell.

    Definatly. If you think the 1998 movie was kind of good, you will like it alot and you should binge watch the whole 2 seasons.

    I mean it, it is a very good Series. It is definatly a slow burner, but a big payoff.

    Just FYI, this was a option on Netflix Kids?!?!?!?! I am sort of new to that stuff and just ask wth? If it remains that way, I am sorry for what those kids are in for. Dumbos Alcohol halucinations are nothing against what awaits.

    I must have totally missed it but what did you see that gives you the idea we are going to get the space spiders?

    A mysterious ship from earth drifting out in space alone with a weak signal coming from it near a destroyed planet. This reeks spiders. At least what happend in the movie once they found the ship. Doctor Smith and the robot are also there, so all stones are set.

    You know what I'd be totally OK with this idea.

    Those spiders would have been a hell of a lot more scary if they had done some of the effects better in that movie.

    But they were metalic creatures so shouldn't they love chomping on metal?

    It is in fact the first good sci-fi show I've seen in a long time that I'd class as a proper family friendly show.

    I would totally agree with that assessment.
