Part Star Trek, Part Twilight Zone, Part Lost In Space
9 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

An attractive earthling-sized woman is found in the jungle.

Star Trek's The Cage (1964) meets Twilight Zone's People Are Alike All Over (1960) with a lot of Lost In Space (1965) thrown in as well.

Despite feeling like we have been down this road before, The Golden Cage is one of the best and most complex episodes of Land Of The Giants. The scenes between Mark and the cute woman will bring back memories of Star Trek's The Cage and the general actions of Steve/Mark/Fitzhugh will remind you of John/Don/Smith in Lost In Space.

This is one of the opening seven episodes in production order so the giant men are often silent and get very limited screen time...it is all about the "little people".

The musical score heard in the teaser (played over the giants in the jungle) is very loud, mighty and powerful...too bad this wonderful music was not re-used as stock music and heard all the time. But no, we never hear it again. Too bad.

The Golden Cage is a knockout!
