One of the main strengths of this Netflix series is its theme based on a family. When the Robinson family is at risk or in a state of confusion, Lost in Space excels. It’s no surprise that the writers opted for the same theme that has propelled this story for three seasons. This is more of a family experience than a sci-fi extravaganza. The scope isn’t as broad as the visuals look. Season 3 is the final journey to Alpha Centauri, dubbed the new home for the Robinson family and their acquaintances. This season brings the consequences of that decision a year forward, with the children finding ways to get to Alpha Centauri on a dead planet while the adults fear and strategise against SAR. It’s a tempting premise for returning fans and one that will indeed aim to conclude on a high note. It still suffers from a writing problem with convoluted direction from scene to scene. However, at this point, we are so warmed by the character development that it can be forgiven that the topsy turvy approach still exists. The final season attempts to hammer as many plot points as possible. The writers have stayed true to what they always intended – creating authentic truths behind the characters.
