Lust in Space?
This is what Judy Robinson looked like in the original Lost in Space.
Just another example of how political correctness ruins everything.
Since I am laid up recovering I am watching even more streaming content then ever. When I heard that there was remake of Lost in Space I thought "Cool there should be some hot chicks." Imagine my surprise that it was a feminist politically correct remake. Wait. Let me rephrase that. I am not surprised. Just really disappointed.
Lets list the way this is different. In this version the Mom played by Deadwood's Molly Parker (Alma Garret) is an emasculating bitch who is a control freak who constantly undermines her war hero husband. Who is her second husband in this rendition. Why? So she can have a mulatto daughter from her first marriage who is in constant conflict with her step father. Instead of a buxom beautiful twenty something daughter we can a scrawny stand in for Obama's daughters. Seriously? Where is the spanking material for the 13 year old geeks who are going to be watching this? Why do we have to insert a bi-racial kid into this family? This franchise was based on a 19th century novel Swiss Family Robinson. I mean if they are going to do this why can't Judy be played by a young Pam Grier or something?
Look this was what the original Judy looked like:
With the new family. They really look like they are related right?
The show isn't that bad if you look past the pc bullshit which is very hard but not impossible. The did a sex change with Dr. Smith turning him from a pedophile man into a ugly woman in the person of indie Queen Parker Posey who spends every moment over acting. Now that is traditional in this role but I wonder how they are going to handle the old subtext where Dr. Smith was always trying to get young Master Will alone in the woods to teach him something. That should be interesting.
All in all it is just another example of how PC Hollywood fucks everything up. I look forward to "I Dream of Jeanie" starring Amy Schumer and "Bewitched" starring Lena Dunham. Jeez. This just sucks.
