Storyline

The Spindrift, a sub-oribital spaceship on a flight from Los Angeles to London, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers. Our heroes include the ship's captain (Steve Burton), co-pilot (Dan) and stewardess (Betty); an arrogant engineer (Mark); a sexy jet-setter (Valerie); a young boy (Barry) and his dog Chipper; and a mysterious rogue known as Commander Fitzhugh. Together they battle the planet's totalitarian government, try to avoid capture, and attempt to repair the Spindrift so they can get back home. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

Although it is supposed to be another planet, nameplates visible on cars and trucks on the show clearly indicate they were manufactured by Chrysler Corporation (the automaker contracted with the series' studio at that time). See more »

Goofs

Right through the whole series, distances have proven to be quite malleable. Examples include: the little people can reach a destination at about the same time as the giants, despite their longer strides; the little people can cover vast distances (across the city etc) in a short time span; the little people can cover the same ground in a similar time as giants in cars.

A Show Before It's Time
19 July 2008 | by tinoburkeSee all my reviews

I Grew Up as a child watching Land Of The Giants and was amazed and pulled into the fantasy, what I liked about the show first was that even though the country was in a race conflict at the time that the character Dan, who is African American was adapted into the show and not once was race an issue or brought up so I thought of him no different(To Bad actors like Will Smith Keep reminding us he is Black)getting away from that I had a crush on Valerie my first and I wanted to be Steve the cool guy and Mark was also cool,later when I saw Star Wars Harrison Ford reminded me of how much his Han Solo looked like an almost was like Mark from the show,and fitzu was perfect we did not need a copy cat of Dr Smith,it was to bad it was canceled and a movie is not in the works, I had not seen the show from the time I was 8 years till I was in my 30s on fx and getting a chance to see it as a child and adult I was amazed how great the special effects really were for a show that did not have computers and the loved it even more, thank you Irwin Allen and the cast for entertaining me in my life and the great work Land of The Giants did ( I miss my lunch box)
