SFX Hot Topic: What do you think of Netflix's Lost in Space?

TODO alt text

Netflix sent the Robinson family lightyears off course last week as they rebooted the classic Irwin Allen show Lost in Space, and we’d like to know what you think of the results!

The new series makes quite a lot of changes from the original, including making parents John and Maureen a couple on the brink of divorce, turning the Robot into sinister alien technology, and giving the self-serving Dr Smith a gender swap. Did you like the more dysfunctional family dynamics? Is Parker Posey a worthy successor to original Dr Smith Jonathan Harris? Was it all a bit too gritty and realistic for you, in comparison to the colourful camp of the original? What would you like to see from a second season?
