Great short-lived series
17 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was very young when this series was on television but still remember it. I think that very few people actually saw it since it only lasted for 13 episodes and it was in the days when many areas only had a tiny handful of channels to choose from. I am very fortunate to have one surviving episode of the show on tape. It is "Look Up At a Giant" and I believe it is the pilot episode. I can't say for sure, but I am certain that Irwin Allen got his inspiration for 'Land of the Giants' from this series. It is true early science fiction at its best and would be more well remembered today if it had lasted two seasons instead of just one. I hope it resurface on disc someday but I doubt it will happen.
