Infestation - S1-E3

New this week Character mistake: When Maureen Robinson says that the ship is "trillions of light years" away from Earth, she should have said miles instead of years. A later episode correctly changes the distances involve to "trillions of miles".

DP Drews

Season 1 generally

New this week Other mistake: One of the episodes shows John at a Marine base camp. It shows him wearing Army fatigues, and in Episode 7, Maureen jokingly says "weren't you a Navy SEAL?" right after he fails to throw this hook to get to safety from a tar pit. So what is he? A soldier? Marine? SEAL? Can't be all three.

Danger, Will Robinson - S1-E10

New this week Plot hole: At the end, when Maureen is searching for John in orbit, she only radios him after Will sees him clinging to the floating wreckage. Before that, she only used sensors aboard Jupiter to try and locate him. She makes no attempt at radio contact for any survivors, which would have quickened the rescue. John can also radio her back, but he did not attempt to call for help.

New this week Suggested correction: The suit radios are fairly short range. This is seen on a number of occasions, such as when they need an extension antenna when stuck in the tar to contact others. The distances in space between the damaged Jupiter and Jupiter 2 are huge, and much further than the distance from the chariot stuck in tar back to Jupiter 2.

Regardless of whether they are short range, anyone looking for a survivor would continually call out to see if anyone is near enough to hear them.

The Robinsons Were Here - S1-E4

New this week Continuity mistake: Penny is holding an envelope in her hands, then turns around to follow the siblings and the envelope is gone. Just a cut later Penny has the envelope back.

Impact - S1-E1

New this month Other mistake: Right at the start, as they're crashing, the computer narrates their rapidly-dropping altitude in feet. But the "altitude" dial we're shown is in metres. Most noticeable as they cross the 3,000 mark, when the computer voice and the height say/show the same number at the same time, despite the different units. 3,000m would be more like 9,000 feet, or 3,000 feet would be more like 1,000m.
