Irwin Allen went to his grave with several titles: "The Master of Disaster," "A schlockmeister," and "a visionary." Well, the labels may or may not have been warranted but one can't help but give him credit for making fare that was popular during its day.

Perhaps, "The Crash," the pilot for Allen's two-season-long "Land of the Giants" is his best effort as a director. It features the producer/director's signature television elements: lots of special effects, a cast of seven, a pretty decent, if implausible, story line, and a brilliant score from a young John Williams.

The download offered has crisp color and sound, actually better than the initial television airing back in 1969. The actors, though they would not go on to do things bigger, acquaint themselves well as Earth folk trapped in a world of gargantuan proportions.

Adventure was the mainstay of Allen productions and this one fills that bill nicely. In a time when most effects are handled in the computer, it's kind of refreshing to see the giant props that had to be manufactured to take viewers to the "land of the giants."

"Ghost Town," the second installment of "Land of the Giants" finds our band of seven earthlings making the acquaintance of an elderly inventor/builder (Percy Herbert) and his hellish granddaughter (Amber Flower). The younger delights in terrorizing the little people as they try to escape from a life-size town, constructed by the old man.

Impressive set pieces and an eerieness, reminiscent of a "Twilight Zone" episode are the highlights of this episode. Reworking John Williams score from the pilot episode elevate this one to classic status.

Glad I only bought 1 season. After the first couple of episodes I was getting bored quickly. The plots are all the same. Giant/s see little people. Giants catch little people. Little people come to the rescue. Little people escape. Repeat next episode.

Truly, that is the plot for every episode. Don't waste your time or money on this series.

As a boy I loved this series. I even collected the bubble gum cards in the UK where I was brought up. The boy is obviously now gone and the man has developed and therefore this series left the man wondering what the original attraction of the series was. Perhaps I should never have grown up, or better still left childhood memories back in th 60's.

During the time when Star Trek, the original series was nearing it's end, this made-for-TV series was state-of-the-art. Granted it lacked the luster of multiple alien species in an outer space environment, it was enough to capture the imaginations of a young and old audience. Agreeing that plausibility balances on absurdity, this was for the Science Fiction fan at large and to be. It definitely was one of my favorite shows at the time, as was Star Trek, Lost in Space (Billy Mumy), and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Looking back on them now, if I were to watch these again, it would be for sake of nostalgia alone. But I would never loose respect for the type of SciFi it was back in its time. In short, they were totally awesome episodes. I never wanted to miss a one. I was glued to the TV every week waiting for them to aire. If you were raised up in todays advances in movie CG, then you may not find these movies interesting or intellectually stimulating. But back then, I did. They helped forge my desire and love of SciFi movies.

If you like watching old show's where the language and sex is more of a 60's type of show rather than the level of shows are today. Where people have to have a curse word in every sentence. This is better and wouldn't worry about children watching it.
