Every time Alex makes his special lasagna he mentions that he didn’t have real cheese. This is a subtle nod that cows are selfish jerks. They flat out refuse to acclimate to the vacuum of space. This is why Garfield won’t leave Earth, sasa ke.
The Belters, people born and raised in the asteroid belt, speak a creole language. Even with the subtitles on, I cannot understand what they’re saying. This is a subtle nod that not only am I an Earther, but so is the subtitle provider. And Google translate.
Ezekiel 25:16-17 foretold the coming of the VelociPastor (literal translation from the original Hebrew):
“Therefore saith the Lord God; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the yeyo ninja.
And the velociraptor will strike down upon them with great vengeance and furious anger. And they shall know that I am the Lord when my velociraptors lay vengeance upon them.”
Arthur Fleck is a failure as a comedian because he started his career as a clown. This is a not-at-all subtle nod to the fact that clowns are creepy as fuck.
While life tends to be a “luck of the draw,” I don’t feel too bad for the Robinsons. I mean, what did they expect? Their autobiography is titled Lost in Space. Is it any wonder that EVERY time they go somewhere (in space) they lose their way? Get lost once, same on destiny. Get lost twice (or more) shame on you! And Google Maps.
