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
Spencer Milligan (Park Ranger Rick Marhall) left the television show after the first two seasons over a salary dispute with creators Sid Krofft and Marty Krofft. In an interview for the 2009 movie, Milligan said "We had a difference of opinion, let's put it this way, on using my face for stuff and paying me - lunch boxes, compasses - where they were selling them and I thought it was only fair that everyone should get their fair share." To handle his departure, the storyline was that his character, Rick Marshall disappeared, having may or may not have returned home, and at the same time, his brother, Uncle Jack (Ron Harper), while searching for the trio, stumbled into the "Land of the Lost" and was reunited with his niece and nephew.

It's funny - I've walked this way hundreds of times and I've never seen this pylon.
Nor I, Will Marshall. And I have been in this valley many times longer than you.
Cha-Ka think it's *new* pylon!
Either that, Cha-Ka, or it's been invisible all this time.
That is not logical.
Now, Enik, if you've been in the Land of the Lost that much longer than we have, you ought to know by now that not everything here is logical.
That is logical.

Cheesy music, sets and acting don't detract from the excellence of some of the stories in this TV series, some co-written by Science Fiction greats like Larry Niven. This series was one of my favorites as a kid and helped spark a lifetime interest in Science Fiction... and eventually science as well. I didn't end up a scientist per-se, but some of these stories are great and still watchable (and some are just plain dumb). No specific names or numbers to recommend... watch 'em if you can find 'em and try not to wince at the cheese of the "special effects" and weird mix of banjo and synthesizer music.
