Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

I'll concede that the science and technology are even more implausible and inconsistent in the Abrams films, though the bar for that in the Trek films was set horrendously low as soon as the Genesis torpedo exploded. But I think the Abrams films are richer and bolder when it comes to character-based storytelling, and that's what really sells the films for me. I think they have a lot of emotional intelligence, and that side of them is very cleverly and deftly told. Maybe that's why they're so popular with general audiences who couldn't care less about the continuity or technical aspects -- because they're more emotionally engaging, with more intense character arcs.

Anyway, does anyone have anything more to say about Lost in Space?
