I was prepared for a poorer quality video, given the age of this. There's only so much you can do to fix that. What I wasn't prepared for (but should have been) is the really, really bad "special effects". I didn't really notice it as a kid, and didn't think about it till I saw these.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to have them to see in order, especially the ones I missed, but it's not a situation where I'll want to rewatch, so off to the twins. I think it's a great show for their ages anyway. Much better than the slap-together stuff I see sometimes these days.
I'm good about updating if there are any quality issues that pop up. Any questions, feel free to comment or email.
But we also see the evolution of the family. They are working together to survive - the cave has a lived in look, the ropes and pulleys they have made, the new tools and even clothing they have created. They show us how the Marshalls test new plants and food on animals and deal with daily life. They wish to escape yet at the same time try to make the Land of the Lost a home.
Also, as if that wasn't enough, the menu interface was so bad and unfriendly that whoever designed it should probably be fired. The menu would have only three or two episode thumbnails on each menu page, and they were arranged in a way that made it difficult to move and highlight one episode to the next or to select the "more" link. The cases are also difficult to put back into the main case. After I received my Universal DVDs and discovered how bad they were, I did an online search (outside of Amazon) and finally found reviews telling me what I'm telling you now. I wouldn't recommend buying the Universal releases unless you're a major collector and want them for the cover-art or don't care for the special features the Rhino collection has. This is one of those rare cases when the newer release is not nearly as good as the older release. I hope this helps someone avoid making the same mistake I made. Hopefully, I will be able to sell my Universal releases (at a really low price) to someone who doesn't care about the differences. I have since bought season 2 and 3 from Rhino and enjoy them very much!
By the way, I was also profoundly disappointed in the new Land Of The Lost movie, starring Will Ferrell. I could have written a better script in my sleep, casted better actors more suitable for those characters, and directed a far better film, even though I've never directed a movie before in my life! Here's a clue to those who made that movie. The series has always been viewed by the original fans as creepy and scary! It was never meant to be turned into a comedy!
