Holy moly! This movie really looks good! When I heard Universal announce the movie was being directed by Brad Silberling and starring Will Ferrell, I got crazy. Not with excitement, but anger. Instead of the story being about a father and his two kids, the movie tells the story of a disgraced paleontologist, his assistant and a macho tour guide. However, the concept is the same.
The original Krofft produced Land of the Lost was, and still is, one of my most favorite television shows. Yes, the production values are cheap, but so what! The stories kept me entertained. Some of the shows were written by the top science fiction writers of their day such as original Star Trek writers and authors David Gerrold and D.C. Fontana.
I own all three season of the original Land of the Lost on DVD. At times, I break them out and go back in time. Great stuff.
