RE: Rate the last TV Show you watched
Lost in Space (2018)

My sister has Netflix (we don't) and last weekend we drove up to visit her.

We spent the better part of a day binge-watching all 10 episodes of the 2018 reboot of Lost in Space.

What I loved about it:
* It was extremely well made. Like a really good movie.
* Great stories, good acting.
* Good character development for the most part.
* Strong female characters without painfully pushing any agenda.
* Good emotional connection with the audience.
* The robot is brilliant. Completely loveable despite only knowing 3 words and killing lots of innocent people.
* It was true to the original series without being a scene-by-scene remake.
* The back story was woven cleverly into the series, and hopefully this will continue into the next series.

What wasn't so great:
* Dr Smith, the villain, was too one-dimensional. There was never any point at which the audience could sympathise with her, or feel empathy for her. I suspect that the makers of the series were wary of making Dr Smith a more sympathetic character, because once they did that in the original series he became the central character of the entire show.
* Don West: he's basically Han Solo. He's a smuggler, he maintains that he only looks out for himself but always ends up acting selflessly, yada yada yada. All he needed was a f***ing wookie. Maybe he'll get one next series.


I was a big fan of the original Lost In Space, which started the same year I was born. And this reboot didn't disappoint. 8.5/10

Lost in Space Series 2: still good. Needs more Robot. 8/10

Z Nation: Good zombie series. Very gory and violent. Doesn't take itself too seriously. 9/10, I'm halfway thru series 3.

South Park 10/10
