  1. No! I don’t have Netflix. Probably won’t for some time. Is it really that good? I remember the original from my childhood. Very silly stuff, but watching it again as an adult, I enjoy it more. As you say, very campy 1960s stuff and you get the fun of noticing big name actors appearing as guests – Michael Ansara and Michael Rennie, for example, and that guy who used to play head waiters in 1940s films, noted for the pop pop thing he did with his mouth, forget his name, which he did in Lost In Space, even, in one episode, Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet … and, of course, that John Williams score, long before Star Wars was dreamed of… However good this remake is, and I’m prepared to believe you there, I suspect it will never achieve the immortality of the campy 60s version. 😏

  2. Most Netflix produced shows have been mediocre. Lost in space however I found to be engaging exciting and couldn’t wait for the next episode.

    I can’t wait for the next season to begin.
