AND, YET ANOTHER TV SHOW I REFUSE TO SEE

The re-boot of Lost in Space.

With a black Judy Robinson, a Hispanic Major West, and a female Dr. Smith.

This comment won the Internet:

Someone needs to remake Shaft. With James Woods as Shaft.

The Left would lose their minds.

It would be so Raaaaaaaaacist.

Netflix is remaking the campy 1960s series Lost in Space. As might be expected, the network is doing everything it can to ethnically cleanse white people and men from the cast, but it’s a hard proposition, given that in the original series, the story focused on Professor John Robinson, a white man; his white wife, Maureen Robinson; Major Don West, a white man; Will Robinson, a white boy; and Dr. Zachary Smith, a white man.

The show-runners started by replacing Dr. Smith with a woman, Parker Posey. Yes, Dr. Smith is now a girl (in much the same way that Britain’s Dr. Who is now Nurse Who).

Then Major West was replaced with a Hispanic character, played by Ignacio Serricchio. Okay, Major West is Spanish now. Maybe he should be called “Major Oeste.”

The old Major West. White men must go.

Meet “Major Oeste.”

But the most confusing part is that Judy West is now being played by black actress Taylor Russell.

What?

In the show, Judy, Penny, and Will Robinson were the biological children of John and Maureen Robinson. Since John and Maureen were white, it was pretty much a given that the children were, too.

In their endless quest for diversity, the diversity-mongers in Hollywood are about to rewrite the laws of genetics. I see three possibilities:

1. John and Maureen Robinson adopted Judy. Why, we don’t know.

2. Maureen had an affair with a black man who impregnated her with Judy, and the helpless cuckolded John Robinson forgave her and adopted Judy as his own.

3. Judy actually started out white but had a bad encounter on a planet of aliens whose touch caused her to become black.

“Diversity” has come to mean that minorities must be in every television show, even remakes of ones that never had them, even remakes where the cast had to be white by reason of family relations. If Dallas or The Godfather was remade today, a third of the cast would have to be black or Hispanic, and we’d be treated to Marlon Brando’s character harping on the joys of adopting so many children from the Third World and raising them as his own.

Ironically, the new Lost in Space is a step backward from at least one P.C. perspective: no openly gay characters. In the original series, Jonathan Harris played the role not just acting a little bit gay, but flaming like a blowtorch. There was also something more than a little NAMBLA-ish about how Dr. Smith would always seek out alone time with Will Robinson. By turning Dr. Smith into a woman, the writers have forestalled that possibility…unless they make the Robot bisexual.

    Speaking of Robbie…………what’s that turned into? Enquiring minds, etc.

  2. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    TPTB had better not play with “Forbidden Planet”. One of the better scifi movies in it’s day, and still a classic.

    Almost every TV commercial I see lately (not too many since I limit my viewing) is centered around a “perfect” (2 educated, fine-groomed parents and 2 obedient well groomed kids, one male and one female) Black family or if the family is white the husband is a whiney, panty-waist bloated turd with a domineering take charge wife who is definitely the alpha of the couple.

    We’re (white males) DOOMED!

  4. Leonard Jones says:

    This is going to bomb on so many levels! I can just hear Robbie yelling
    Danger Mrs. Jemima, danger! Are they going have taco Tuesdays and
    soul food Saturdays? What other cultural vagaries can the throw into
    the mix?

    I am with you on this one Deplorable. I still haven’t gotten over that
    teenage boner I had for Anne Francis! Forbidden Planet remains one
    of my all-time favorite sci-fi movies.

  5. Leonard Jones says:

    PS I meant Miss Jemima.

  6. Boggy – in nearly half the other ads, the white woman has a nig for a man. Almost never an Asian, almost never a Latino. And you never see ads with a black woman and her white husband.

  7. bogsidebunny says:

    Ya know Andrew that same thing occurred to me after I posted my comment. Ya think the Libs are trying to set a “destroy the White Northern European Christian Male image”? I do.

  8. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    LJ,
    That should be Ms (Miz) Jemima.

  9. Over here the families if they are not negroes are pakistani or a black male, white female and two half chat kids. I gave up paying for and watching the BBC when they had shows like Robin Hood featuring blacks in prominent roles or praising the koran.Forbidden Planet is still one of my favourite films….”The fool, the meddling idiot. As though his puny ape brain could contain the secrets of the Krell” Fabulous.

  10. Don’t even get me started on Star Trek: Discovery….!
