Netflix‘s reboot of Lost in Space is out, and it’s received some lukewarm reviews. But one cast member is apparently getting people to tune in: the robot, played by Brian Steele, who becomes the Robinson family’s protector.
Yes, people think the robot is hot.

This robot-lust isn’t that surprising. People were horny for the fishman from The Shape of Water and more recently Tom Hardy’s Venom. Sure, there are probably more important conversations to be had about AI and its moral grey areas from the Lost in Space robot, and its gender is open to interpretation. But Netflix apparently needs those thirst-clicks.
