Product Description

Determined to prove the existence of The Lost World, dashing adventurer and scholar Professor Edward Challenger mounts a British expedition team consisting of a mismatched group of enthusiasts, all with less than selfless reasons for making the journey. This hugely impressive John Landis (Animal House, Blues Brothers) production takes place in a land where time stands still but terrifying pre-historic creatures, vicious ape-men and blood-sucking flora won t. Based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle this thrilling series brings cliffhanging action, great effects and hot heroes right into your home!

This was a difficult review to write. I am a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's book, The Lost World, and hate with a passion every "adaptation" ever made, for two very simple reasons - one, they shoe-in a "love interest", who is either a pneumatic blonde drip or a feminazi and second the bigotry that is Political Correctness rears up and poor Lord John Roxton is made a coward or a villain or an amoral psychopath simply because he is a classic Victorian - a wealthy aristocrat who epitomises the "muscular Christianity" of the Victorian era - brave, moral, principled, a leader, etc. The number of directors, scriptwriters, producers, etc who go on and on about how much they "love the books" and then produce a complete hatchet job instead of filming-the-book. You cannot really improve on ACD, people - shelve your ego and accept it! I long for someone like JJ Abrams and Co to read the book and film it properly, like they did with Star Trek.
Amazingly, this TV series got so much of the characterisation of the original book true to the original work, even if the actual storylines are pure hokum - but, there is nothing wrong with hokum, because that is what Sir ACD wrote The Lost World and it's first sequel and I hate "literary" snobbery, that sneers at Mills & Boon, and fantasy and Westerns and sci-fi. Writing Mills & Boon is one of the hardest markets to crack and they are excellent for teaching swaggering wannabe novelists some much needed humility.
The story starts off according to the book, with the Challenger expedition going to the plateau - it then veers off into fantasy arenas with the heroes discovering the plateau is a focal point of space-time flux where all sorts of bizarre events occur as they try to get off the plateau and go home.

Ok I saw this on the SCI-FI channel, it is to me pure entertainment, something to watch with ease.
The actors through themseves into the sotry, the action is strong and most of the time it centre around caves, if you see it you will know what I meen. Some episoeds are better than others.
The special effects for a Tv show is not to bad for it's time, my only problem is that on the DVD it does not have the opening poilt episode, you do not need this but it would have been nice, I think you can still buy this seperatly, in the UK.
Overall this is just good fun and entertainment, and if that is all you want then buy this for the escapism that it offers. seasons 2 and 3 are cheaper in region 1

I loved the original story as a child, and have been dismayed by each inept adaptation for the screen over the years, but this is a joke.
