Rieann....I am a big fan of Schitt's Creek; watch it every week on CBC. I too love Eugene Levy's son Dan Levy and the fact they co-produce it!

My 11 y/o daughter and I just started watching Lost in Space last night and love it! We are on episode 5 already!! I never watched the original so have nothing to compare it to. Is it based on a book or strictly tv show?

I'm hoping I can find lost in space on YouTube since we don't have Netflix.

Seriously I can't confirm or deny anything about the film at this point in time, but I will say that it was the most memorable way to spend my birthday! Because we started on Thursday the 5th in the evening and ended on Friday the 6th, the morning of my birthday. Then I went home and slept through the rest of my birthday because I was so fried after filming and freezing for 14 hours. Lol.


As for Lost In Space on YouTube I could only find trailers and interviews. So I'm hoping one of you clever people might be able to find me a link to the whole series online. Thanks in advance.

I think Lost in Space is a Netflix Original that was just released. It might be hard to find it online...but what do I know?

I think you can get a 30 free trial when you sign up at Netflix. That's more than enough time to watch all 10 eps of Lost in Space! :-)

I just finished it yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot. Not as hard and gritty as I'd been led to believe but also not as silly and ridiculous as the original was. I was pleasantly surprised and hope there's a season 2.

Btw, I discovered (after the fact) that Billy Mummy was the actor playing "the real Dr Smith"...but I didn't recognize him in his scene...until I went back and looked closer).

I've also noticed they are kind of playing with names on LIS. Parky Posey plays a woman pretending to be Dr Smith, but a few eps in, we learn that her real (character) name is "June Harris". (June Lockhart played Maureen and Jonathan Harris played Dr Smith on the on the 1965 version of LIS.) One of the survivors from the the crashed fleet of ships on the new LIS turns out to be named "Angela". (Angela Cartwright played Penny Robinson in the 60's version)....and in this new version, Don West rescues a chicken and keeps it as a pet....and he named her "Debby". (On the 60's version, Penny's pet alien chimp creature with the big head and pointy ears...and who could only say "blup, blup" over and over...was named Debby).

I'm wondering if/when we'll be seeing new characters on the new LIS named "Marta" (after Marta Kristen who played Judy in the original), "Mark" (after Mark Goddard on the original), "Guy" (Guy Williams played John Robinson on the original), or"Jonathan" (after Jonathan Harris who played Dr Smith).

Oh yeah...the actor playing Don West is Ignacio Serricchio, who played the sexy "Miguel Maldonado" on Bones.

It's a fun family show....not a lot of violence or sex...but I still enjoyed it! :-)

Great info, Sanfranjoshfan. We completed episode 1-9 of LIS. Saving 10 for tomorrow evening. We found it quite good. Didn't see the first version, but we liked this quite a bit. Nice clean storyline. Good for the whole family.

Strategist, here's a little clip compilation of Dr Smith vs the Robot from the 60's version. One would never have known the new version of LIS was based on this hysterically ridiculous show, if not for the title and character names.

Jonathan Harris (Dr Smith) chewed up the scenery on this 1965 series like a man who was starving to death!

There was a movie made a few years ago based on Lost in Space and it was disappointing and very dark and not fun at all and I did not enjoy it. I'm hoping this series is more interesting and certainly more light-hearted than the film.

In my memory, that guy (Dr Smith) was Roddy McDowell! I'm shocked that it wasn't him!

Mame, I think there was a really bad movie with Matt Le Blanc in it. I think I gave up after a short time with it.

Mameblanche, yes there was a LIS movie but what you referred to as "a few years" ago was actually two whole decades ago, in 1998! In that one, I believe Gary Oldman played Dr Smith.

Kitt, yeah that film is still hated to this day! I don't know why unless people just expected it to be as wacky as the original series. I thought the '98 film was okay but it wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination. To me, it was just a watchable standalone sci-fi movie but it was "Lost in Space" in name and marketing only.

Thanks for the compilation, Sanfranjoshfan. I didn't even know that Dr. Smith was a man until I came to this thread!

I have no idea if this includes all tv providers, but this week on comcast X1 boxes, you can watch anything on netflix for free without having to sign up for the free trial. (plus its free premium channel week as well. You can watch all the premium channel on-demand content this week for free)

Yesterday I found the Series Vexed on Netflix. My DD were laughing out loud. After just a few episodes and with no explanation they changed the female lead and then the personality of the male lead and geez it is no drop dead boring...was so looking forward to entire 2 seasons...

Irsnappy, you moved into season two. Lucy Punch was his partner for the first season which only had 3 episodes. Such a bummer as I found her with Toby Stephens character much funnier too.

Eta... I think they had her character move out of town.

Rieann, yes I googled Lucy Punch and she has moved across the pond to LA. What a shame they were such a fun duo.

I really enjoyed Netflix version of Lost in Space so different from the TV show or the Movie.
