Trivia

Hawking radiation is a theoretical type of thermal electromagnetic radiation that astrophysicists predict is emitted by quantum singularities (black holes). The theory was first posited by Professor Stephen Hawking and physicist Jacob Bekenstein who theorized that whenever stellar matter enters the event horizon (the boundary of a singularity where its gravitational pull becomes so strong nothing can escape, not even light) its interaction with the singularity's quantum/gravitational field would produce a unique type of radiation. Figuring out how to detect Hawking radiation would help locate singularities far more accurately than current methods; however as of 2018 no confirmed cases of Hawking radiation have been found out in interstellar space.

Goofs

At one point, Maureen fills a weather balloon to ascend to 350,000 (above 65 miles) altitude. Although it is filled with helium, the balloon should have expanded its volume (according to Boyle's Law) by many times, but it still shows its original size, even at that altitude. Even if they use some kind of as yet undeveloped textile, even at 25 miles, the balloon would have expanded to a hundred times its original size. See more »

Action, Plot Advancement, and Manipulation
16 April 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

Parker Posey is just a fabulous and awful Dr. Smith. Her portrayal is spot-on every single episode; she takes everything that that 1960s Dr. Smith was and, with a crime-filled backstory, distills it into a self-indulgent, manipulative, and disturbingly believable villain - which is where the awful comes in. Dr. Smith is simply an awful waste of breathable air, and since every tale of science fiction need something bad to battle, Dr. Smith is our primary consistent evil to be overcome (...or neutralized...).

Maxwell Jenkins is wonderful and heartfelt as young Will Robinson - he is the heart of the series and perhaps his best yet in this episode.

The episode itself, Transmission, takes full advantage of Dr. Smith's villainy, Will Robinson's sweetly complex relationships with the Robot and his Father, adds a good dose of action (sci fi creatures are a welcomed sight) and some solid plot advancement regarding the colonists, their planet, and the Resolute and the end result is satisfying and well played.
