"Danger Will Robinson! Doctor Smith is right behind you!"
Yeah, I know. cheap joke.
But the article is interesting in that it shows how a typical hollywood Guy is so excited to go back to the favorite show of his youth. Better a fan than a hired drudge.

But… They used the word "edgy". My God. Why does everything have to be "edgy"?

On the watch list for this weekend.

The link isn't working for me. Probably the WiFi here, while visiting my parents today.

So it's another one of today's remakes/reboots then?

Will the 1998 film be considered canon?

Cacique Caribe13 Apr 2018 4:00 p.m. PST

Oh God, that would be so sad.

" Oh the pain"

First two episodes were decent, not great but I'll be watching more. More exciting is Yamato 2202 starts in May on Funimation.

EDIT – AND The Expanse had a solid season opener this week as well.

I know, right? grin

It was on the other day, and I watched about twenty minutes for some reason. It's even worse than I remembered, which I didn't think possible.

I never even came up watching the TV series, and I think the movie STILL might have ruined my childhood.

Not worth the time. Horrible script. Horrible acting. I really hope someone lost their job for making that movie. Piece of trash.

Up through the 4th episode. Very different from the original with just the right amount of references to it in my opinion. I have not felt the urge to binge watch any of it however.

Blitzed through all ten episodes on Sunday. Very few links with TV cannon, zero to the movie. That said, I liked it. Gave Maureen the strong character role, gave the kids lots to do.

But lord above, Smith needs a bullet in the head.

My wife and I watched it this weekend.

I generally liked it. Thought it was interesting how they incorporated both the character of Dr. Smith and honored the actor who played him.

That said, most of my wife's comments were about suitable fates for Dr. Smith. She failed to find anything she thought was suitably dire for her.

We blitzed through it too. We mostly liked it. This Dr. Smith makes the old Dr. Smith a piker by comparison. Wonder if it will get another 10 hour installment.

4 episodes in. enjoying it. Really want to see "The Expanse" tho. Anyone watch "The Frankenstein Chronicles" with Sean Bean? Enjoyed that (2 ssns so far)

MiniatureReview23 Apr 2018 11:52 a.m. PST

Saw the entire 10 episodes.

One thing that I found which totally stood out is how emasculated the men were. Most of them were rather wimpy, even Mr. Robinson who supposedly was a seal seemed at times pretty girlie.

The women on the other hand seemed to have more testosterone then the men. It was like they said it's opposite day for most of the episodes and women are men and men are women.

Mrs. Robinson more manly the Mr Robinson
Dr. Smith more manly than the original Dr Smith, although he was pretty wimpy.
Will Smith definitely wimpier than the original Will Smith
Don West very girl like at times.

It really wasn't until the last episode that the men started acting more manly.

I really have no idea why a hetrosexual white man with an ounce of self respect would subject themselves to modern mainstream entertainment. It is all like that.

Xintao27 Apr 2018 5:45 a.m. PST

I watched the first episode last night. I found it boring. I liked the Robot. I don't think the nonlinear plot did anything for the overall story. I'd rather see a linear timeline.

I will watch a few more at least.

Dezmond: "I really have no idea why a hetrosexual white man with an ounce of self respect would subject themselves"

LOL. Well, I'm a heterosexual white hispanic male. My self-respect must be at an all time low today because I'm about to watch the first episode and give it a try.

I just need a little mindless fun escapism* today. At least that's what I remember the old series being. Wish me luck.

* I've given up on many of the big budget action films, like superheroes and X-Men type movies, which leaves the "SF" pool extremely thin these days.

Cacique Caribe17 May 2018 9:11 a.m. PST

Okay. That didn't take long.

Watched for 15-20 minutes. Got tired of everyone trying to outdo each other in the defy or ignore Dad's orders department.

I guess everyone else in the family knows better than father.

PS. I might have stuck around a little bit longer to find out the specifics on the "blended" family, but I don't think I can watch more of those Dad is a zero scenes.

>I just need a little mindless fun escapism today.

I really think our Progressivist masters have made their No-Escapism policy very clear.

They do not intend to permit the proles any venue where they can live free of the influence of The Party.

Not even in dreams and fantasies.

Cacique Caribe18 May 2018 4:24 a.m. PST

I know, I should have expected it.

LOL. Oh well, I guess I still hope that there might be a few rare brave remnants in the tv and movie industry willing to challenge today's shaming and social "payback" system.



That level of steadfastness is clearly not found in Hollywood and their so-called "independent" studios in Canada and elsewhere.

As for Netflix* itself, the number of "activism" documentaries just keep growing. Funny how, despite today's supposed unlimited choices, most of them sound like clones of each other. They regularly repeat the exact same code phrases and everything. If I didn't know better I would find it all hilarious. :)

All I wanted was to get lost in space …

* Now I understand why when I asked Netflix if they had plans to have a classic (B&W) Pulp, SF, Horror and Western film category, their reply was that "it wasn't part of their vision". It sounded a bit cryptic to me back then.
