    New Netflix, reboot of a great series. So love what I see so far and hope they do justice to the original. Even the movie was good. Super excited for this...

    Thanks for sharing. One of my favorite things to play for people (and ask if they know who it is) is the first cut from Bill Mumy's CD (and the whole CD is pretty good)

    Just finished the first episode. Really well done. Has some serious potential. If the rest of the series matches or betters the first episode this will be a must watch.

    The production value is there and blows away the movie in that regard. I’ve watched most of the series now and I am a bit bored by it. Still, better than I expected from the trailers.

    We watched the first episode last night. Was bored to tears until the robot showed up, and the family drama is TOOO TV soap opera. I hope they cut back on that crap.

    Watched the entire series over Friday and Saturday. Really enjoyed it, although it got a little too melodramatic from time to time. It doesn’t have the comedic elements of the original and this version of Smith is much more of a psycopath than the original; neither of which is a bad thing. Hope it comes back for a season 2.

    Watched it over the weekend. Good popcorn show. Thought the Dr Smith character played by Parker Posey was a bit over the top. Loved the pic and sound. Shook the crap out of my house without running the subs hot. I was shocked. Gotta tell the landlord there is some loose drywall. LOL

    Trivia: The real Dr Smith you see in Ep 1 is the original Will Robinson. ;)

    Through episode 3, and I'm enjoying it. Not the greatest TV, but far from the worst.

    I'll give this one a solid adequate. I'm not mad that I watched it, but I'll wait for the reviews on season 2. If they do it.

    Late to the party on this one.

    We watched all the episodes and for me it was a struggle. Like DYohn mentioned, there was way too much soap opera stuff going on, and add to that the suspension of belief for a lot of the show, especially the ending, like floating around space on a chunk of a spacecraft that just happens to have power to help save them.

    Hoping season 2 is much more action packed or I'll have to ditch this one.
