The final season (S3) drops tomorrow on Netflix. The trailer looks good, I'm looking forward to this.

For some reason, I thought this was cancelled a few weeks after Season 2 aired. However, I really enjoy the show so I am down for another season. Maybe I am just misremembering the announcement that Season 3 would be the final season.

Finally, that only took two years.

I had to kept remembering that this is season three because it took so long.

I'm curious how much older Will Robinson will look given the time between seasons and if they explain it at all or not. Will be down to watch this when time permits but won't be burning the midnight oil for this series.

He's like 5' 11" now according to some online sites. The one mistake they have here is the pre-credits sequence in Episode 1 of Season 3 that has the current/tall Will in it (and takes place a year before everything else we see)...they should have found a way to not include Will in that sequence, since it apparently takes place shortly after the end of Season 2, when Maxwell/Will was much shorter.

What were the first two seasons about? I’m over 50 so my memory is failing.

Season 1: The Robinson family and some other colonists crash land on a planet and spend the entire season trying to survive and get their ships back into space.
Season 2: The Robinsons and others from season 1 reunite with their mothership, but the bad robots come after them. To try to keep them safe from the robots, all the children are loaded onto one spaceship and they take off with Judy in charge, separating the Robinson kids from their parents.

I am on I think the third episode, and I am enjoying it. It is not a super special show or anything like that, but I like it well enough. I do not want to spoil, but I do like that it is a bit of an unexpected character that kept the kids from acquiring enough resources to build a rocket and get off the planet.

Everyone in this show looks exactly the same except Will. It is like he grew 4 feet.

The year time jump helped but still jarring.

I dont know Penny seems a bit different. But, yeah... Will grew up like 4 feet. When Dr. Smith said "the only that is annoying is how you are taller then me now". lol

I've managed to catch the first two episodes so far. It's really jarring how tall Will got, yet he remains quite baby-faced. Liking the story so far, but it is a bit predictable so far but it's pretty mindless watching so no real complaints there.

Was that June Lockhart playing as Maureen's mother in episode 5? She kind look liked her.

Re: Lost in Space (Netflix) - Season 3 Thread - premieres 12/01/21

I don't really care much for this storyline with the robots. The robots are just these literally faceless and mostly nameless enemies (though they've tried to make one of them stand out as an individual) and I just can't get very excited about them. And I get that this is the last season and the showrunners are focusing everything on this one arc, but I would have liked some more episodic stories that show more of the people exploring some of these new worlds they've found.

I like that Russell Hornsby ('Hank' on Grimm) is in this season, but there don't seem to be any other significant new characters.

Knocked S3 out over the last 2 nights. A very enjoyable series.

I finished this out yesterday and pretty much enjoyed it because the whole cast was fantastic. If by chance it continues with Will and Robot, I would continue to watch. =)

Last season was pretty good. Excellent production value.

Finished a few days ago. It was ok. Remind me, did we know Judy was Maureen's bio daughter and who the dad was? I don't remember that at all from the previous seasons.

Yes, that was explained in a prior season that Judy was the biological daughter of Maureen and some other guy, before she married John. IIRC, Judy didn't know until somewhat recently that her biological father was actually this famous lost astronaut, but she did know that John Robinson was not and that he had adopted her when he married her mom.

Watched the first episode and was beyond lost. I didn't remember anything from the last season. I have now watched a few recaps on season 2 and one. Now I'm up to speed. Still think the first episode was rather dull

Finish the season and it had it ups but I mostly didn't like it. The robots didn't have much personality. Sometimes scenes were odd with the lack of people around. This got better latter on. The effects were good. The worm was out of nowhere but it looked good and the situation was fun. Nothing looked bad. Didn't like Penny or her YA triangle. Judy and her bio father was odd. Just seem like there should have been more done with the situation. There was a couple of times someone gets knocked back by a robot when the robot could have just killed them.

I think I might have liked this more if I watched the seasons back to back.

I just finished episode 7 last night. It's an enjoyable series. Would not mind another season of this one but happy enough with what I got so far. I'm mildly curious to see how they wrap up the robot programming storyline. there has been a bit of grandstanding speeches from Will and others this season but it's to my mind pointing in the direction they will go with the finale so it's bearable.

Re: Lost in Space (Netflix) - Season 3 Thread - premieres 12/01/21

Even though I hear what some folks are saying with their criticisms of the Season 3 episodes, I finished this up last night and thought it was a great way to end the series, and quite touching and emotional at times.

I was of the opinion that the episodes seemed to get better as we headed toward the back half of the season and I would have been down for another season but am rather content with what we ended up with.

The worm episode (a monster of the week episode, I am a fan of those type of episodes) was fun, and the aftermath scene when the ship is spit out out of the worm where the mother just closes her eyes and wants to stay next to Judy for a bit longer especially after Judy's revelations about what she thought was expected of her growing up was a sweet scene.

Honestly, of all of these types of series that I have seen on Netflix, I have to admit this show would probably place in my top 25 from shows I have watched over the past 5 years. I have seen a lot of Netflix shows that I enjoyed but still admit were pretty meh at best, but Lost In Space became a fave of mine. It was the type of Netflix series that whenever I put an episode on I wanted to keep watching, that happened last night...I kept telling myself that I was so close to the end to keep watching and ended up going to sleep around an hour later than usual. When I want to binge several eps on a standard weekday I know I have fallen hard for the show.
