The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 68% approval rating with an average rating of 6.21/10, based on 65 reviews.

David Griffin of IGN gave the first season a rating of 8.5/10 calling it “an excellent sci-fi adventure with a slight villain problem,” giving particular praise to the Robinson family, while criticizing Parker Posey's Dr. Smith as an unsophisticated and one-dimensional character that lacks redeeming qualities. In contrast, Jen Chaney of Vulture characterized Posey's performance as providing “understated, sly comedic touches”.
