    No it isn't. Have you ever eaten a crumpet? It's as close to a 'tart' as a cow is to a herring!

    Well, they are both in the bread/pastry family.

    Besides, it’s close enough for the joke to work.

    I liked it. There's plenty of room for expansion. Great chemistry with all the characters. Clearly "Dr. Smith" has sociopathic tendencies. You can relate to the characters mindset.

    I'll be back for Season 2.

    When I do a search on TiVo only the old series shows up. So I cannot find the seriesid or programid's.

    I'm up to episode 7. I'm really annoyed how these people just wander around the woods knowing there are giant creatures out there. They have 2-3 of them attack their camp, and the next day Penny wants to go swimming. Plus, who the hell would even think about swimming. Wouldn't you assume any body of water is filled with those eels.

    That's another thing. Did they say that all Jupiter ships had their fuel tanks drained by the eels? I understand how the main character's ship could have gotten eels since they were under water. Were all the ships underwater at some point? If a ship is on land, how do the eels get into their ship? Maybe I missed something.

    I did hear that, and had the same thought. Unless there are other land-dwelling versions of the eel. But it happened while they were at the J11 and the eel they had was living in a tank, so it was aquatic.

    I try not to get to attached to the technical details in shows like this. Writers tend to take a lot of leeway with the facts for the sake of coming up with ridiculous scenarios. For example, the scene where Parker Posey allows the guy to get ejected from an airlock was completely unlikely. You would never be able to open an airlock by accident and let it open automatically into outer space without a lot of safety interlocks. What the heck is an airlock doing along a main corridor anyway? That aside, I'm done with the first four episodes and I plan to stick it out for the rest. The robot is pretty cool and a far cry from the Michelin Man Robby the Robot that they ripped off from Forbidden Planet in the TV show. I liked the pilot episode of the original TV series when it aired, but the rest of the series was too stupid even for me back then, and I was probably about 8 or 9 years old at the time. At least they didn't bring back Matt LeBlanc from the 1998 movie spinoff.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the show and thought some of the things they came up with were quite well done.
    Parker Posey as Dr. Smith was a pretty brilliant choice. Probably the best thing I have seen her do.

    I was just wondering about the original series. In the S1E2 show, there were 2 aliens watching the family from the bushes. Did those guys ever show up again in the series?

    I'm not sure, but I think that was part of a pilot episode that was never aired with the original series.

    So many things have made no sense that I wonder if it's because I am not following closely enough or is it the show just doesn't care? I don't get how they were under the ice for three episodes, but couldn't fly out until the ice had collapsed around them and they had no fuel. And how did the water instantly freeze, but the Robinson family is fine with their faces exposed on the surface? And there's more that I forget.

    Maybe these were explained.

    Huh? The original Robot was not at all like the Michelin Man Robby! (love that name)

    Lost In Space suffers from having lots of smart characters with no common sense. Statistically there should be at least one smart character that has common sense. This has been evident with every incarnation of the series. It's probably a legacy that was left by Irwin Allen. This time around it took 8 episodes before they realized that Dr. Smith was not who they thought she was and also a sociopath.

    This is far from a Lost In Space problem. One of the things that will make me want to stop watching anything is when someone who is supposed to be smart has zero common sense. Comes in second on my per-peeve list behind people that keep important things secret, for no apparent reason.

    I've often wondered if a lot of Hollywood screenwriters have ever actually met a smart person? Because you'd never know from their scripts! :D

    Heh. Comic book writer Nick Spencer addressed that in an issue of Morning Glories (#34, to be precise)...

    Which turned out to be hanging a lantern on it, because they never went on to actually talk about things, and thus everything got worse. :D
