I have just finished watching Netflix's reworking of the 1965 version of "Lost in Space" (which was itself based on "The Swiss Family Robinson" written in 1822!).

I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. It's kind of like "The Martian" with Matt Damon except that here it's a collection of families stranded and the planet is much more interesting than Mars. Production values are extraordinary - a lot of money very well spent.

It's also interesting that like so many sci-fi/adventure films nowadays, women (and girls) have the strongest roles, although Toby Stephens as an American ex-SEAL is a great bonus.
