This is very loosely based on "The Lost World" written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. So loose that if you took away the character names it would pretty much lose all resemblance. That however does not take away from the wonderful stories and characters. The acting is quite good and the sets, special effects, and music are better than adequate. The dinosaurs may not be up to Jurassic Park standards, but they are fairly good. My whole family enjoys this series. Devout fans of the book may find it a let down, but anyone that enjoys light TV series like Hercules with Kevin Sorbo, Zena, or Mutant-X should find it fun. Even fans of more in depth series like Stargate SG-1 will probably like it.

The set includes six slender cased DVDs with twenty-two episodes. It is 16 hours and 8 minutes of entertainment. The first two seasons have all the original cast. The cast includes Peter McCauley as Professor George Challenger, Rachel Blakely as Marguerite Krux, Will Snow as Lord John Roxton, David Orth as Ned Malone, Jennifer O'Dell as Veronica, and Michael Sinelnikoff as Dr. Summerlee. After that the Australian TV industry intervened with tax laws at the the end of the second season, both Ned and Veronica had to be guest stars and the series started to go down hill after that. I highly recommend the first two seasons. The picture and sound quality is good and although the set does not includes any extras it is well worth the price.

Buyers beware: The versions of The Lost World on DVD are NOT the original pay-per-view versions that aired on DirecTV before they aired in syndication on WGN and local stations. The original DTV versions contained nudity and other extended content, while the scenes were obviously edited down or replaced for syndication. The DVD producers should have used the original episodes instead of the edited ones, in order to create more value for the DVDs. In fact, this point is never even mentioned on the box or packaging.

There's nothing worse than a DVD of a TV series that does not include uncut episodes, and that goes for network TV DVDs too. I'd rather have had the choice of seeing TLW uncut than to be stuck with ONLY the syndicated versions that most people saw. There's a huge audience of people that never saw the show as it was originally intended, and the show is unlikely to ever be released again, and that's a shame.

Format: DVD
I had no idea what to expect from this show when I first programmed it into my TiVo as a Season Pass. The inclusion of one of my favorite filmmakers John Landis and the alluring physical beauty of Jennifer O'Dell (as Veronica) had attracted me to the title at my local video store. But I had resisted purchasing it, unsure of the quality and if the premise from the Conan Doyle story (which I read years ago) could sustain a full-blown weekly adventure series.

I need not have worried. Currently in syndication on the cable channel TNT, `The Lost World' is well acted and features some of the best dialogue written for the genre on television and although Peter McCauley receives top billing on the show, nearly every episode is stolen by William Snow as the adventurer Lord John Roxton and his interplay with Rachel Blakely as Marguerite.

Indeed Blakely's character goes through a transformation as the series continues. In the initial episodes she is a clearly motivated by self interest - she trades Veronica's freedom for her own in the second episode `Stranded' - yet later she becomes more of a team player and more sympathetic.

Of course the presentation of the impossibly beautiful Jennifer O'Dell on the cover of the DVD set (and down the spine of both the first and second season sets) highlights another attraction the show holds. Playing a character searching for lost parents she displays physical prowess and a defiant charm all the while skimpily clad - I don't recall such a character appearing in the work of Conan Doyle.

Another crowd pleaser is the dinosaurs and special effects which are quite well done by television standards. The team are menaced by everything from ape men to raptors to human eating plants and the occasional t-rex.

This is an excellent series popular with viewers of all ages, varied backgrounds, and all over the world. Loyal fans have been waiting a long time for these DVDs. If you like strong characterization, attractive characters, great action and adventure, this is a good fit for you. A convention was recently held for the show, and fans were privileged to meet three of the actors and two of the writers--wonderful people. The show is NOT officially cancelled, by the way, as of this date. The term is "delayed," as there are people working to bring it back to television.

How do you encapsulate a great series like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's: The Lost World?
I will certainly give it my best try.
This series has it all - action, adventure, romance, comedy and drama.
Season One starts things off with the aptly named episode "The Journey Begins". Our explorers Prof. George Challenger, Lord John Roxton, Ned Malone, Prof. Arthur Summerlee and Marguerite Krux are taken in by Veronica Layton (a young woman whose parents disappeared 11 yrs before and grew up alone on the mysterious plateau). The stranded group realizes getting off the plateau and back to London is no easy task (luckily for us). You'd think dinosaurs would be their biggest problem - think again. They encounter slavers, ape-men, cannibals, headhunters and raiders, just to name a few. I think all the episodes have something to offer but here are a few of my choices as standouts.
"Cave of Fear" delves into Roxton's guilt over his brothers' death by his own hand.
"Out of Time" sheds some light on Marguerite's destiny.
"Prodigal Father" Veronica is confronted with the possible return of her father.
"Absolute Power" Challenger is transferred extraordinary powers and the consequences are devastating.
"Birthright" finds Summerlee hunted by an angry T-rex.
"Camelot" takes you back to the days of jousting and dragon slaying or should I say dinosaur slaying.
"The Beast Within" Malone tries to rectify an error in judgment.
"More Than Human" introduces one of the more charismatic recurring characters named Tribune (he also shows up in "Barbarians at the Gate" and again in Season Two).

From "The Journey Begins" where they are still getting a feel for one another to "Barbarians at the Gate" where they would die for each other - you'll follow these characters through many trials of courage and strength. It's a journey you'll be glad you started.
