Storyline

The Porter family, Tom, Kevin, and Annie get sucked into a prehistoric alternative world while taking a family vacation. The Porters build a tree house, hook up with a few locals, Tasha- orphaned, extra smart dinosaur, Stink-monkey man, and Christa-another human who has lived in the Land of the Lost since she was a little girl. The Porters must deal with living with dinosaurs and avoiding the evil advanced Sleestaks. Theere mom was long dead before they got there and there aren't any "early humanoids" there either.

It was a great show in my opinion.
4 May 2003 | by (Seattle,Wa) – See all my reviews

Until Nick at Night did a special where they ran episodes of Lidsville, H.R Pufnstuff, Bugaloos, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and a bunch of other wierded out 70's stuff...

(it was the 90's at the time and the 70's were the major trend, much like the 80's are experiencing a comeback now, THANK GOD!!) ...I had no friggen clue that the Land Of The Lost I used to watch durring saturday mornings on ABC in the early 90's was not an orriginal show (but hey nothing is ever orriginal anymore is it?) I loved the show to death for its strange "Star Trek meets the prehistoric age" atmosphere. Albeit the characters were meager and there were some nitpicks but the writers usually don't factor in the concept of kids nitpicking Sat Am TV or their parents saying--

"Hey! I remember a similar show back when I was little!"

Because of course those kids will laugh at you and look at you like you're insane so everything is fine. I myself was born in 1981 and my idea of good TV is Knight Rider.

But durring the 90's there was this resurgence of 70's stuff and so alotta music and television programs got re-made. Land Of The Lost was about a guy and his kids who's jeep got lost in some cave that transported them into the era of the dinosaurs. A scary and strange enviroment for the son and daughter as well as the dad.

Dino's are just about everywhere, and the ancient technological race called "Sleestaks" are always trying to hurt the humans. The fact that they and the cave girl speak english without being taught doesn't really bother me, its a kids show and I was young when I watched it. Kids generally don't nitpick inconsistencies in their saturday morning tv shows.

I always loved the baby dinosaur and the cave girl, they were the most memorable characters in the show for me. One of my fave episodes of the show is when the humans think they have gone home but things don't seem quite right in their old house. Everything is really a fake projection and a T Rex comes storming thru the hologram town. Awesome and ironic. Great looking special effects. And what about the themesong? Gotta find a place to download that.

After seeing the orriginal 70's incarnation of "Land Of The Lost" on Nick at Night I learned that

0 - Special effects in the 70's were crude and lame.

0 - There was too much obsession over censorship and cleanliness then.

0 - I appreciated and miss >MY< 'Land Of The Lost' that much more.

And the most important one of all.

0 - Its okay for TV producers to refurbish a show from a couple decades back so long as the kids watching it don't have a clue that its not an orriginal concept.

I know the feeling of betrayal when your fave series gets remade and all the brats watching the new stuff think you're stupid when you try to tell them about the orriginal. When Knight Rider gets remade I'm going to complain to those kids at the theatre about the orriginal and.. they're going to look at me like I'm insane.

Its conspiracy I tell ya!
