One thing I really appreciated about these shows even at age 6 when they first aired, was how deep, engaging and non-patronizing they were. These were not simply "kid" shows. This was real in-your-face science fiction at full throttle - where kids were treated with respect. I never felt talked down to as an audience member or as a child watching these shows. They were mentally engaging and it was easy to overlook some of the less-than-stellar effects which were still pretty advanced for their time.
At age 6 I knew that the dinosaurs were claymation. Heck, Grumpy the T-Rex didn't even have a throat and he had a mouth more like Kermit the Frog than a menacing dino - but I didn't care. The sound effects, the music, the eyes - all gave me the creeps.
The show's premise is utterly brilliant: a family is on a camping expedition and has all their camping gear above their raft as they paddle "high on the rapids." An earthquake hits and they plummet down a waterfall to certain death only to find they have somehow entered a time-door of sorts to another time and dimension where even the weather and gravity are artifically controlled, dinosaurs run amok and the veggies are freakin' huge.
Rick Marshall, his son Will and daughter Holly are alone in this utter wilderness with no telephone, no TV, no toilets... somehow they manage to survive for years without threadbare or stained/ripped clothes and even find time make friends with the natives and learn the Pakuni language.Read more ›

I have been waiting for this DVD for almost 30 years and now I will get to relive my ritual Saturday mornings as a kid!!! Live-Action Saturday morning shows in the 70's ruled!!! Now we just need to get the Filmation shows on DVD like Ark II, Shazaam! and Mighty Isis, Space Academy and Jason of Star Command!!!
Get out your sleeping bags and a box of Quisp cereal and throw a big Saturday Morning slumber party because the ultimate Saturday Mornings are back once again!!! Woo-Hoo!!!!!
Land of the lost was a classic show. For its day, the special effects were great and as far as the story's, even kids shows of today can't match them. I am 36 now and I was probably about 7 or 8 when I watched them and watching them now, I still enjoy them. The stories were very well written for a saturday afternoon kids show. No matter what I was doing on saturday morning, I had to be in to watch Land of the Lost!! The set itself is very well done! The menu animations and extras are first rate, better than most that are made for motion picture dvd releases. The picture transfer quality for a 30 year old show is amazing. Overall one of the best sets released this year!! If you remember this show as a kid, you will not be disapointed in this purchase. A great addition to any persons dvd set collection!
