The original Lost in Space aired on American networks at the same time as the then less-popular Star Trek — which went on to spawn multiple series and movies, including the latest movie Star Trek: Beyond and new series Star Trek: Discovery. Why didn’t Lost in Space do the same? It aired for three seasons on CBS and while there were numerous attempts to reboot it as a series there’s only been one film with William Hurt.

Lost in Space streams April 13th on Netflix.
