OK - pick your faults? A bit hammy and hokey? No real character depth? Deliberate prat falls and a wayward dog 'Chipper come back' always getting our hero's into trouble? Actually - it was ALL levelled at the series even at the time! However, despite all of this, Irwin Allen really did present a good and colourful comic strip romp! Something that looks original, sytlish and good even today. In fact, far from the Giant's world set in the late 1960's making the series look dated, it kind've give's it a timeless quality now... And as I watched, instead of the Spindrift passengers and crew coming from the then future of 1983, you could easily say 2083 should anyone care to run a few CGI digital touch-up's of the Earthlings visual technology..? All in all though - please buy & enjoy these DVD's..!!! Aside from the odd early chromokey effect and giant mechanical hand failing in the special effects department, the rest of the visual's in the series truly is a wonder to behold considering it being over 40 years ago! With the camera angles, direction and giant props, the illusion of conflicting size pays off! You DO believe you're trapped on a Giant world! The only galling part is, that when Land Of The Giants first came out, I was younger than the 11 year old Barry character. But now of course I'm fast creeping up on the age of Fitzhugh! A character in the series either described as fat and/or old..??? Oh hum... How celluloid really does immortalise and preserve our images from the passage of time eh?
