SAFE PLOT WITH A WEAK CONCLUSION
Few series have survived the premise like Lost in Space and had the dignity left even after the final episodes are shown. The series still surrounds around killing robots and even despite the short number of episodes, it’s still cringing and family-oriented as the previous seasons as expected. As it has been a gap between this and the prior season, it’s noticeable the age difference around the siblings of the Robinson family.
In this season, the children are separated from their parents and the series continues about a year later, following the story even to an open ending to the closure of the story. There’s a lot of action scenes played out through the season and there’s a lot of back and forth. There’s not much time for details and emotional reunions when that’s up for grab. Even if the children and the parents deal with occurrences, both camps struggle but solve the solution to get back.
There are some solid guest stars visiting the series and some old characters returning. There’s even a major plot twist by the end that was surprisingly rough when it came to be. But as it’s a family-oriented series, the plot still follows the theme of friendship and unity that solidifies the overall aspect.
Although there’s an urge for fighting and having action scenes, the problem gets solved rashly quickly as everyone in this series is supersmart and solves everything in a short bit. The story has an overall good pace but feels a little short, unfortunately, even if the predictable concludes suitably. Even if there’s no new plot, just a concluding plot this final season, the story works well mostly because of small twists and turns. No dull moments crushing the spirit.
Molly Parker and Toby Stephens give a decent performance, Maxwell Jenkins is less annoying this season than the others. The sisters-actors of Taylor Russell and Mina Sundwall develop some leader-instinct during the season and some personal gain which hasn’t been at disposal before. It does not explain the reason for the robots other than the Robinson family changed Robot and therefore got an ally. Other than that, it repeats most of the mantra that has been there before. It concludes as well personally through flashbacks, as not much of their former life on earth wasn’t depicted before like in this series, which is appreciated. It’s sad that it wasn’t there before.
Overall, it’s a decent series that gives a comfortable sci-fi family-fun for the moment with some maniac robots and an intelligent family.
