    Forty years after first seeing Lost in Space, it finally occurred to me to wonder: Why didn't the Robinsons just ASK for directions?


    They met so many people who had traveled all over the galaxy. Some of them knew where Earth was. Surely some of them knew where Alpha Centauri was!


    Or was this a guy thing?! Too embarrassed to ask for directions?!

    They never got around to asking, they were usually too busy trying to beat off Dr Smith.

    Good question. Most of who they met was trying to do them in but they did run across a few good ones.
