And thus ends for this household the last episode of season one of the chronicles of the Robinson family, aka “Lost in Space”. This new reprise of the old television show is a definite improvement in settings, special effects , and performances. Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Parker Posey and Ignacio Serricchio all turn in excellent performances punctuated with a particularly good performance by Parker Posey as the maniacal Dr. Smith. Not to spoil anything for anyone I will say that I think we can look forward to a resurrection during season two as one of the last scenes in the last episode was highly reminiscent of a scene in “Lord of the Rings” in which Gandalf and the evil demon plummet into the abyss, seemingly to their deaths, only to have Gandalf reemerge later as Gandalf the white. Anyway, can’t wait for season two if there is one and rumor has it that there will be, but as of this time season two appears to be “Lost in Space” hopefully to reemerge soon.
