Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey is a nice contrast to the origin camp version.

Also I did not know that John Woo directed a very 90s - but filmed in 2003 - looking reboot too.
Wow, I hadnít ever heard of the John Woo version...

I only caught the first ep of the new series (so far) and found it an interesting update, if you can accept the extraordinary contrivance of them crash landing on a planet that is virtually the same as Earth (clearly done for budgetary reasons, so somewhat understandable). The robot is a particularly interesting update and thereís some intriguing mysteries set up in the first ep that are going to be interesting to see unfold.

True and I like that they still made the attempt to make the landscape alien to a degree: the ends of tree branches are rounded of at the end and the root system is almost like a printed circuit board. I'll refrain from talking about the Robot other than it's bloody-well nigh indestructible like the one in the original series.

Also while they tried to do hard science like the Expanse this is an all ages show.

Looking through Netflix and decide to start on The Musketeers. Pretty decent. It appears to be swashbuckling adventures at first but there are a lot of underlying sub plots involving politics and double crossing.

Thought the new lost in space was a pretty good little bit of family sci-fi, nothing spectacular story wise (think the new Star Trek takes the trophy for that), but an enjoyable watch nonetheless. Liked the female Dr Smith and the robot was pretty cool.

Ending on a cliffhanger is Evil Dead tradition. I still wish for more though
