4.0 out of 5 stars A show this BIG deserves the full treatment! 21 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
The year was 1968 and producer Irwin Allen had already taken TV viewers on a "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," gotten them "Lost in Space," and thrown them through "The Time Tunnel." He decided that it was time now to go a journey to a "Land of the Giants."

Fans and critics alike feel that Allen was influenced by the respective films "Dr. Cyclops" (1940) and "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (1957) and that is a fair assessment. The show deals with the crew and passengers of a suborbital flight in the year 1983 that is somehow transported to a realm where they are "six inch oddities" in a land of gargantuan proportions. The setting allowed the creative staff to place the seven principal cast members in all sorts of situations/dangers, making for possibly Allen's most visually striking and "serious" endeavor. Though geared toward a young audience, the show occasionally showcased more adult themes than either of the producer's other three television efforts. Such change may have been the result of the influence of NBC's "Star Trek" which was in the last season of its three-year run when "Land of the Giants" debuted.

It also appears that some aspects of the show were more innovative than it was then perceived. One is in the casting. Don Marshall, who played co-pilot "Dan Erickson," was one of the few black Americans on network television with a pivotal role. The character was sometimes allowed to be the decision maker and shared close quarters with white female co-stars Deanna Lund ("Valerie") and Heather Young ("Betty"), something that was revolutionary in the late sixties-early seventies. Allen may not have considered that in his hiring of Marshall but it does elevate the actor to "trailblazer status.

5.0 out of 5 stars great memories 13 Aug 2014
Format:DVD
The second season of the land of the giants is a must see to all fans for me it was Irwin Allens best series as I found lost in space relied to much on comedy and the time tunnel was dull in episodes with history lessons where giant's had a more of a fight for survival about the show with the characters risking their lives to save captive friends as to the second season my favourite episodes included the clones, pay the piper (which guest starred Dr smith from lost in space) and the deadly pawn where the little people became chess pieces on a giants chessboard -,it was a shame that the episodes in the late sixties cost so much to make as this was one of the main reasons it never got renewed for the third season which was going to be made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy days! 22 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
I bought this collection as it had a huge impact on me as a child in the seventies. I wasn't disappointed watching it again all these years later. Yes, of course, it has dated, but it still retains its charm and whimsy and continues to amaze and entertain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Box set for the discerning Giants fan
Much better than the U.S. release in that the discs are single sided. I am still glad of the U.S. set if only for the wooden carry case and other extras. Read more
