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.

For the very first time this fantastic science fiction series comes to DVD in the UK. There were actually two seasons, season one which contains 26 episodes, and season two contains 25 episodes. Each Disc has the same "Land of the Giants" logo on it and there is a lovely booklet with 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. There is also cast commentary and interviews with Stefan Arngrim, Don Matheson and Deanna Lund. Stills gallery and episode photos and a Deanna Lund gallery

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 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.

Looks great on DVD....shame about the packaging...the complete series comes in a thick cardboard sleeve with four collectable postcards packed between the series 1 & 2 box sets & series 2 has it's own cardboard sleeve...all this makes removing the box sets from the outer cardboard sleeve impossible!!...after trying everything I accidentally tore the outer cover and decided the only was to get rid of the outer sleeve so I had to tear it off....whoever had the bright idea of wedging everything into this cover? .....I am only giving this three stars due to the packaging but don't get me wrong the series has never looked so good an excellent remaster of a childhood favourite of mine...worth every penny
