I watched the first season of Netflix’s reboot. Parker Posey as Dr. Smith adds a much needed dark dimension to the series.
I love the old series and have been watching it on Hulu from the beginning for the past six months—the original pilot with a different cast is worth checking out. However, if Netflix had followed the 1950s nuclear family “Aw shucks” attitude of the original, it wouldn’t work.
In the reboot, there are backstories for all of the characters—even for the “Danger, Will Robinson” robot.
