    Decided to fire this one up last week after running out of things to watch. So far my wife and I enjoy it. Toby Stephens, from Black Sails, is really quite good. The kid playing Will is perfect. The "robot" is quite well done, a solid update. Parker Posey is creepy as Dr. Smith.

    It doesn't seem to have a strong guiding storyline. So in that sense it is more like the original than many modern serial programs which slowly advance and overall narrative, while peppering in side stories. But perhaps that story will emerge.

    Anybody else watching this?

    Yeah, we have watched it.

    Very high production quality, good casting. Poor storyline.

    Parker Posey is very underrated.

    That's kind of where I am. Story is slow now, was hoping it would pick up and not just be a new crisis each episode.

    It's boring as hell.

    Life is too short to watch that slog.
