What a letdown!
5 July 2006 | by ihc73scout2See all my reviews

I was 3 years old when the original show came out. It was one of my favorite Saturday morning shows. I still enjoyed it when they put it in reruns on one of the local stations, several years later, even though by then I could tell how hokey some of the special effects were (it was a low-budget show, duh!). When the new show came out, I was sorely disappointed. The producers had "modernized" it too much. I mean, c'mon! In the original series, the Marshall family got by on the little bit of gear they had when they were whisked away into the "Land of the Lost". The producers had gone to the trouble of creating a "vocabulary" of 200 words or so for the Pakuni (the little hairy caveman guys), and that added to the story. Every story was an adventure. The new show, they got an SUV, for crying out loud, and the Pakuni spoke (broken) English! I only hope that, when the movie comes out, they do it right...and stick to the original story!
