See John Woo’s Unaired Pilot for a LOST IN SPACE TV Series Reboot

     February 16, 2011


They say you learn something new everyday, so here we go. Apparently about seven or eight years ago John Woo directed the pilot for an all-new series remake of the 1960’s CBS series Lost in Space. Going by the title The Robinsons: Lost in Space, the series never got picked up and the pilot never made it to the airwaves (though apparently some sets from the pilot made it into the new Battlestar Galactica series. Apparently the pilot has been scarcely available for viewing, but it’s finally made its way to YouTube (although it’s un-embeddable).  I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but it can’t be any worse than the 1998 film adaptation which the child version of myself love, but the adult version of myself ultimately hated.

The pilot is in five parts.  Here are the links (via Ain’t It Cool): Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.
