https://io9.gizmodo.com/parker-posey-talks-about-oh-the-pain-of-playing-the-ic-1825358325Parker Posey may be known more as an indie darling than an action star, but there’s something else almost no one knows her as: a bonafide Lost in Space fan.
“As a five- and six-year-old, I woke up before the sun would come up on Sundays and I would wait [for Lost in Space],” Posey said during io9's visit to the set of the new Netflix series. “I remember the black-and-white static shift to color bars when Lost in Space came on. It was part of my Sunday thing.”
As far as Robot is concerned.
I would just bet Robot is hanging onto the outside of the ship or it will quickly come through in the other Robot's ship. There is no Lost in Space without Robot.
It is derived from the comic book, Space Family Robinson, which was loosely based upon The Swiss Family Robinson, a German novel, with several very different English adaptations, which was itself loosely based upon Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, in turn, partly based upon a real shipwreck survivor's life, Alexander Selkirk. However, the comic book series doesn't have a robot, though it does have telepathic alien tripods. So, almost Shakespeare!Wow. I'm making it sound like Shakespeare.
That's probably the most believable part of the whole series.That leader definitely has the "I think I'm the smartest guy here despite the fact I'm as thick as a brick" syndrome.
That line bothered me more than anything else in the whole season. That was from the smart one. It tore me out of the scene. Did they do it on purpose? Did they just not look it up? If they really wanted to use those types of numbers they could have set it up by telling us that at some point they found out the universe was bigger than anyone had thought. That would not have been ideal but it would have worked and shown they had at least thought about it.when Maureen referenced them being 'trillions of light years away'
I took this as merely a throw-away statement, and she simply meant "a long ways away".I got a jolt of WTF in (I think) episode 2 when Maureen referenced them being 'trillions of light years away'. With the visible universe being 3 orders of magnitude smaller than that, I couldn't help a face-palm.
And yes, the actual universe might be larger, but how would she be able to make any kind of an estimate?
I think sometimes, we overthink things.That line bothered me more than anything else in the whole season. That was from the smart one. It tore me out of the scene. Did they do it on purpose?

I actually heard a similar statement when I was serving on a jury. The defendent was asked if he had ever been in a particular neighborhood retail store. He answered: "Only about a million times!" We acquitted him.
