Lost in Space

Revealing mistake: During the attack of the Global Sedition on the space station at the beginning of the film, several objects can be seen with dark grey boxes around them - CGI artifacts. One clear time is when Ranger 1 is saying "Damn, can't shake him". (00:02:35)

Revealing mistake: When Penny and Blart are reunited at the end, the animators didn't put the creature where Penny is looking. She also tries to lift it onto her shoulder, but it is nowhere near her hand.

Factual error: When the Jupiter 2 blasts off, it does so in the most fuel inefficient way possible - flat surface first. The air resistance would be fifty times less if they'd angled it side on. Plus, when the aerodynamic cover blasts away, the Jupiter 2 itself is revealed - and it is more aerodynamic than the cover. Rocket science must have taken a few steps backward lately... .

Question: What happened to the family at the end of the TV series?

Answer: Presumably, they're still "Lost In Space." The series ended before a final episode was shot. In the 80's, series creator Irwin Allen considered doing a TV reunion movie with the original cast to bring the Robinson family home, but with the unfortunate passing of Guy Williams, the idea kind of fell to the wayside.
