    Is anyone else enjoying this? I'm generally tired of reboots but I think they did a very good job with this.

    We are having horrible ice storms here (in April!) so I binge watched 4 episodes yesterday. I love what they did with the Robinson family, the robot and Dr. Smith. Good story line (I think).

    concerning the original from some comedy source..." I think we should split up into teams. The handsome, fit twenty something guy , you and my nubile 16 year old daughter should head out on an overnight trip, while my 13 year old son will go over those mountains w the mincing sleazy doctor."

    I didn't get into it on first watching. I got about halfway through the first episode and stopped. I may give it another try though.

    Can’t make up my mind. There are parts I like but I’m not sold on the character development just yet. It could be I have just watched to many Netflix series. The robot is really the only fun intriguing character to watch.

    The girlfriend and I are working our way through. We're on episode 5 or 6.

    It's ok. Some stuff is really stupid. The wife needs to lighten up. And I don't like that the robot is basically a superhero. What's wrong with seeing regular humans doing extraordinary things with the help of reasonable technology? Why do we need to be rescued by superheroes all the time now?

    I’m 4 episodes in so far. I’m liking it too. I tried to get my 9 year old into it, but I don’t think it has enough action for him.lol

    I really enjoyed the original series when I was a kid. Is the new version appropriate for kids in the 8-9 year old range?

    I’m liking it too, purely because I find it different and entertaining. I tend to forgive realism discrepancies if I’m suitably entertained.

    I'm watching, now on the fifth episode. I take it for what it is, aloosely based reboot of an old show. I watched the original re-runs as a kid. I seem to have no problem taking the reboot as is.

    Yeah it has a few character development flaws, but most shows do. I am enjoying it as family friendly sci fi adventure. The new season of Bosch is streaming now, so I am splitting my TV time between he two.

    So far I’d say yes. I haven’t heard and bad words in it and it’s not really scary.

    My 9 year old only made it 30 minuets in and he wanted to do something else.

    I watched the first episode today while I was troubleshooting audio problems with the home theater setup. (Broken wire to the front right speaker.) The series is "okay". I'll watch a few more episodes and see how it goes.

    I just finished five seasons of Longmire, so space is a nice change from Wyoming.

    I watched it a little. It was Ok to have on in the background while I was doing some other stuff, but then at some point there was some sort of plot development (trying to avoid spoilers here) in a cave with two characters? I admit I wasn't paying super-close attention but I get kind of tired of the "good guy knows the bad guy is doing something bad but can't act because of ethical compromise/blackmail/mind control" plot. If that's even what that was- as I said, I wasn't watching too close. That plot basically ruined a Netflix series for me that's based on one of my favorite book series ever (again trying not to spoil even a little but it's the one about a sheriff in a non-coastal Western US state).

    EDIT: @Rich_S LOL

    It's a big deviation from the original. Nice, but not very much amused.

    If you liked Longmire you will love the Longmire book series by Craig Johnson the Netflix series is based on. The books are so much better and the characters including Vic and Bear are so much better and widly fun.

    The original TV series is a "tough act to follow", so to speak:
