Storyline

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 Huggo

Trivia

There were only 3 Sleestak costumes for use, which required the production team to merge shots and use editing tricks to make it appear that there were more. However nearly all of the time, you will see only 3 on screen. See more »

Quotes

Will Marshall: It's funny - I've walked this way hundreds of times and I've never seen this pylon.
Enik: Nor I, Will Marshall. And I have been in this valley many times longer than you.
Cha-Ka: Cha-Ka think it's *new* pylon!
Will Marshall: Either that, Cha-Ka, or it's been invisible all this time.
Enik: That is not logical.
Will Marshall: 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.
Enik: That is logical.

This show rules - forget the crappy 1991 remake!
7 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes! This is the BEST Sid and Marty Kroft show that ever was. The first two seasons are brilliant from the great theme song ("Marshall, Will, and Holly on a river expedition ran into the greatest earthquake ever knoooooooown....." to the above average scripts, special fx, and acting.

However, the third season really fell apart and the two kids on the show starting singing these horrible musical numbers. Also, their dad left the show to be replaced by their uncle and the scripts got hokey and contrived.

All that being said...My overall of the opinion of the show remains really favorable though. The Sleekstacks scared the doo-doo out of me as a kid although they never could move any faster than in a shuffle. For a kid's show, this one was REALLY good and I will remember it forever.

Forget the 1991 remake...It is stupid beyond belief isn't even worth comment.
