    If it is sci-fi I will watch it. If it is sci-fi from decades ago I will watch and enjoy!! But this is just "The Perils of Pauline" with a hateable character thrown in. (That would be Dr Smith). This is a difficult watch so far at seas2 ep3.

    And it continues...won't get into any content but why did they bother? It is inconceivable how bad it is. In for a penny...

    I loved the season. Yeah, sure, if I were there, Dr. Smith would've been killed very quickly, very early. Last Season. But all that notwithstanding it's still quite the entertaining season and lots of interesting developments with the robots. And an interesting setup for season 3.

    I liked the first season OK. Haven't started this one yet.

    Although Penny isn't as good a character as last season...not as much misbehaving to do. ;)

    The science continues to be jaw-droppingly bad. E.g., the water world with the trench around it. Where does the water that falls into the trench go? (People are able to walk around on the trench floor!) Why doesn't either the trench fill up or the ocean drain into it? Water finds its level...that's one of its fundamental characteristics!

    You mean the man/machine-made trench whose presence implies that the planet is more than a planet and there's something internal we aren't seeing, and whose presence may be utilizing planetary mechanics to harness things like electrical storms? I think there's a whole lot there to dissect before I'd go to ever considering it should fill up because it's a trench and the water that falls into it has no place else to go.

    Now navigating the spaceship with sails, through unknown waters riddled with outcroppings of rock? No comment there? :) And damn, that "jumper cable" sure is long and strong (well, not quite long enough, obviously, but strong).

    But whatever planetary mechanics it may be utilizing don't involve water, because the same machinery is at work on a desert planet.

    Not sure I remember the belt being in a trench on the desert planet.

    Maybe it's an Infinity pool trench. ;)

    Fond memories of reruns of the original.

    Couldn’t get past the first few of season 1. Can’t believe it got a season 2.

    I can't decide whether or not to watch Season 2. I kind of enjoyed the first season, but I absolutely hated the Dr. Smith character.

    You're not going to like her any better in season 2. I just binged it over the weekend and I did enjoy it in spite of her character. The emotional development of the robots is interesting (yes, there's more than one).

    I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a popcorn action adventure movie.
    You can't question they why of it all - just go along for the ride.

    I didn't really enjoy season 1, somehow Will and Robot were the only characters that I ended up giving a damn about. Everyone else was an interchangeable season long random extra, even when they gave them backstories and tried to make us care.

    That trend kinda continued into season 2. Couldn't find myself giving a damn until they finally got back to Will and Robots. Fortunately, once we finally got there, it moved along nicely. So I'd say the tail end of Season 2 was quite enjoyable, the start - not so much.

    Season 3? Are they really going with kids in space?

    I was a little unclear as to where the other Jupiters where planning to go...are they going to one of the...four? other planets in the "Danger!" system?

    When Maureen, Will and Adler get dropped on the planet to find Robot why not just drop them off right at the destination? Bring in horses and travel another day or two? You have a fricken spaceship!

    I've got a couple of episodes left. Whoever was the science consultant on this show, if there even was one, should never be allowed to work in anything science related again.

    To be fair, I know somebody who knew the first science advisor on ST:TNG, and apparently it doesn't matter how much they know if the producers simply ignore them...
