This is a sci-fi show from 1968. I downloaded the episode for a bit of nostalgia.

I supposedly "bought" the episode, but cannot find any way to download it to my computer where I do most of my video viewing.
I could do such a download a couple of years ago, using something called Amazon Unbox.
When I explore the Amazon download site I find a maze of deceptive run-arounds which always lead back to tablets and smartphones.
No mention of desktop computers anywhere. I've since discovered that iTunes has the exact same pattern of deception and concealment.

I suspect that what has happened is that in order to access movie and television archives, Amazon had to agree to DRM restrictions freezing out PC users. If so, it's highly deceptive of Amazon to tell me that I "own" the program that I bought, if Amazon alone, decides where I can view it.

It's bad enough to deny where a video can be viewed, but even more vile (and the source of my own anger), is that Amazon, and iTunes as well, have gone to deceptive lengths to conceal these restrictions. I wasted hours trying to get a simple answer to this question:

"Can I download my purchased video to my computer?" I spent hours trying to get a straight answer. Even Google has page after page of Amazon and iTunes stonewalls. I expect such things from iTunes but Amazon has always taken the ethical high road. Apparently not in this matter.

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.

The character of Tobey was a Guitar student of mine Mike Freeman. He is still playing in Vegas yet today. He wasn't that bad either. As he was in many Famous TV series episodes. He goes by Rebel Freeman now

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.

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.

AS A YOUNG MAN, I WATCHED THIS AMAZING SCI-FI SERIES DURING IT'S ORIGINAL RUN ON ABC TV ON SUNDAY AT 7PM. IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING SPECIAL EFFECTS SERIES OF ITS TIME, THE ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THAT IT ONLY LASTED 2 SEASONS. I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE MORE OF THE SHOW, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY INTERACTED WITH SOMEONE OF THE GIANTS. IT SEEMED THAT THE GIANT FEMALES (THE GOOD ONES), WOULD TRY AND HELP THE "LITTLE PEOPLE" AS THEY WERE REFERRED TO, AND I KNOW THERE WERE MORE SCRIPTS WRITTEN FOR ANOTHER YEAR. I HOPE THEY TRY TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN.

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.
