‘Good morning to the Lost In Space Robot’s butt’: Outpouring of online lust for the unlikely star of Netflix’s latest hit show sees the channel produce a video of the machine’s ‘hottest’ shots
- The sci-fi show’s helpful hero has become an object affection among fans online
- Netflix has responded with confusion toward the sexually charged comments
- Series was touted as a family-friendly alternative to darker dystopian efforts
When it unleashed 10 hours of dazzling science fiction, Netflix probably hoped the internet would be awash with positive reviews on stunning special effects.
But fans of the new Lost in Space have unsettled the show’s creators by overloading Twitter with their sexual attraction to a robot.
The series was touted as a family-friendly effort, an antidote to the dystopian landscapes that so often characterise futuristic efforts.
But any hope of innocence was snatched away amid a flurry of lust for the machine on Twitter, with Netflix finally responding by telling viewers: ‘Ya’ll Need Jesus.’
The online movie giant posted a video expressing the confusion they felt over the sudden surge in attraction toward the robot.
The show, starring Toby Stephens and Molly Parker, is a re-working of the 1965 classic of the same name, which was itself a re-imagining of the 1812 novel The Swiss Family Robinson.
