Not much in common with the book or film versions, but actually quite good.
Usually when I see one of these adventure series' on TV, they almost always bore me. However, this is one of the few shows of its type I like. While it has almost nothing in common with the book or the film versions (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's book, not the new one) except for the characters' names and the basic idea, it does manage to be a fairly entertaining show. It deals with the explorers running into ancient civilizations, odd characters, etc. over and over, but always comes up with another way to keep you interested. It also has some nice humor. True, the dinosaurs aren't believable, the stories sometimes predictable, and it seems the characters get killed over and over only to have them revived by some magical sorcerer or something close, but it's generally a good, fun adventure series.
