I hope this is better than Lost in Space.

As someone who has fond memories of my Saturday morning TV habits I completely agree. I really am not liking Hollywood's taking of shows that were never comedies and turning them into complete slapstick drivel.

I remember watching the 90's remake TV series when I was little. No idea if fans of the original hated that as well, but I found that trailer disappointing even in light of that.

Yah bet me to it. That being said, Well said old chap, well said. Yet another childhood memory turned to crap. What's next. Hong Kong Fuey? Grape Ape? ElectraWoman and DynaGirl?

Thank you for that Moon [EDIT and AT]... that pretty much states clearly what I was too angry to do earlier.Cripes, yet another chance for Hollywood to shit all over my childhood memories. Well not just mine.. but still.At the very least of it all... from the brief glimpse of Sleestaks I got from watching the trailer once, they seem to look like they are supposed to.... and that means action figures. I may never EVER watch this movie but I'll be damned if I will pass up the chance to buy as many of those as possible and just pretend they came from the 70's. : )

Any glimmer of hope that the trailer was just a fluke and that the movie would be a bit more faithful to the original TV show has now be completely raped and set fire to.Early screening reviews

A Chorus line spoof? *Sigh* And Hollywood's movement to dumbing down movies just to make a buck continues
