The Marshalls - widowed ranger father Rick, and his two children Will and Holly - are on an outdoor expedition like they have many times before. While rafting on this trip, an earthquake opens up a chasm resulting in them tumbling across some raging rapids and over an unknown waterfall. They end up alive but in a world unfamiliar to them, a world they will ultimately coin the Land of the Lost. It is inhabited by creatures some they have never seen or heard of, and some which no longer exist in the world they knew back home, creatures such as dinosaurs. They will find that some of these creatures are friendly, and some of them which they need to stay away from for their lives. As they eke out a life in this strange land, they try to understand what got them here so that they can make their way back home, that process which is fraught with its own dangers based on the unknowns of what is on the path to home. What they are also initially unaware of is that Rick's brother, fellow ranger ... Written by
The producers came up with a very interesting idea to keep their viewers looking at the show during the hiatus between the first and second seasons. In the first season's final episode, the Marshalls discover that for some reason they aren't supposed to be there. Enik later informs them that due to a time disturbance that they never really arrived in the Land of the Lost and must go back in time and relive the accident that brought them there. By going back in time, they also would experience everything that happened to them up to that point in a sort of time loop. See more »
[The alien Enik has made a startling discovery about the temporal doorway that has led him and the Marshalls to this world]
I cannot leave here. Nothing can leave here, unless an object of equal mass and temporal energy enters.
Well, that means we can't leave either, unless three other people come in.
Yes, but there is more. You should not be here at all. Your presence here is the source of my problem. Look...

Do keep in mind that for the vast majority of those posting here, we are looking at the series through adult eyes, yet the show was never intended for adults. This show was extremely well written for what it was, and for it's intended audience.
If you look at the show today as an adult, accepting the fact that the show was created for kids only, you would then see just how incredibly well-written it was. My favorite episode? I have two. The first is the one where they find the bones and uniform of a soldier from either the Civil War or the Revolutionary War (I can't remember which), and then the one where an alternate Marshall Will and Holly are found sticking out of a wall in a cave. See? For a Saturday morning kid's show, it was incredible. It wasn't the West Wing, but it never was intended to be that, either.
