Land of the Lost for adults
27 June 2016 | by HEFILMSee all my reviews

Only my memory is that Land of the Lost was better. Better written and in this game of course that means better ideas as this is an idea medium--science fiction.

A good cast couldn't really save a show limited by budget and by not so great writing and directing.

I was sad when it was canceled as I routed for the show to get better, but in truth it never took off creatively, or was given much of a chance to.

McDowell was sort of LOST IN SPACE, Dr. Smith character only not, thankfully, played for laughs. Nonetheless Dr. Smith became a pop culture figure.

Of course this show had more potential than Fantasy Island--sort of a non romantic, or schmaltz, version of that concept--and somehow again that show took off in the ratings and this barely had a run.
