Reviews

Debuting in 1968 and lasting just two all-too-brief series, Land Of The Giants, the original science-fiction/adventure series created by sci-fi visionary Irwin Allen has far outlived its initial run. Taking on a remarkable life of its own, the show maintained an astonishing degree of popularity, spawning worldwide fan clubs, newsletters and convention appearance. Now, for the first time in the UK, the first series on this cult classic comes to DVD in a wonderful 7 disc set, which includes some fantastic Special Features!

For the very first time this fantastic science fiction series comes to DVD in the UK. There were actually two seasons and this is just season one which contains 26 episodes. It comes in an excellent package. There are seven discs in a slim plastic tray container. Each Disc has the same "Land of the Giants" logo on it and there is a lovely booklet with 10 pages of interesting facts about the development of the series with some good pictures and artwork presentation. The Back of the booklet has a chart of the episode listing and original episode title, filming order, broadcast order and airdate. All of this comes in an attractive card sleeve container. There are some brief but welcome special features. The unaired version of the pilot episode doesn't differ much from the aired version but it's interesting to look at. The interviews with stars Gary Conway and Don Marshall are worth seeing and the presentation reel, special effects shots and broadcast information are also good additions.

On 12th June 1983 a sub orbital commercial flight from America to London hits a mysterious cloud storm and crash lands on a planet just like earth. The only thing is that the people on this earth are 12 times bigger in height. The series follows the space travellers attempts to repair their space craft the "spindrift" and return home while tackling giant insects and animals or fleeing from the giants who having discovered the existence of the little people want to catch them usually to experiment on them.
The crew are Captain Steve Burton, his co pilot Dan Erickson, and stewardess Betty Hamilton. The passengers are engineering executive Mark Wilson, wealthy heiress Valerie Scott, 12 year old Barry Lockbridge and his dog chipper.

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?

Following the success of Irwin Allen's "Lost In Space", the same man then presented us with another entertaining sci-fi/adventure series here.
First broadcast in 1968, the series opens in the year 1983, with the sub-orbital spacecraft "The Spindrift" on a journey from Los Angeles to London.

En route the craft, piloted by Captain Steve Burton, (Gary Conway) with it's crew and passengers, are pulled into a space storm which forces the craft into a crash landing on a mysterious planet.
Everything appears to be Earthlike except for one considerable difference: Everyone and everything is twelve times it's size on Earth. The Earthlings now face a continual battle for survival, while attempting to repair the spacecraft for a return to Earth.
The giants are now attempting to hunt them down, the giant animal population also poses a great threat, the "giant" countryside provides some cover for the shipwrecked party.

As with Dr Smith in "Lost In Space", the show features a resident rascal amongst the passengers - the shifty and cowardly Commander Fitzhugh, (played by Kurt Kazner).
The scenery and effects are very good, especially when considering the series was made over 40 years ago. For those like me with fond memories of when this series was first broadcast, this is a very enjoyable trip down memory lane, and good entertainment for all the family.

The 4:3 colour picture and sound quality are excellent. This complete first series of twenty-six, 50 minute episodes is spread over seven discs.
Here is a list of the special features:

*Unaired Version Of The Pilot Episode (The Crash).
*Gary Conway Interview.
*Don Marshall Interview.
*Presentation Reel.
*Special Effects Shots (No Audio).
*Original US Broadcast information.
*Exclusive Booklet.
*English Subtitles.
