Land of the Giants DVD Collection
Land of the Giants was an hour-long American science fiction television program lasting two seasons beginning on September 22, 1968 and ending on March 22, 1970. The show was created and produced by Irwin Allen. Land of the Giants was the fourth of Allen's science fiction tv series. The show was aired on ABC and released by Fox Television. The series was filmed entirely in color and ran for 51 episodes. The show starred Gary Conway and Don Marshall. Author Murray Leinster also wrote three novels in 1968 and 1969 based on the television series.
Set in the then-future year of 1983, the series tells the tale of the crew and passengers of a sub-orbital transport spaceship called the Spindrift. In the pilot episode, the Spindrift is en route from Los Angeles to London via the ultra-fast route of a parabolic trajectory. Just beyond Earth's boundary with space, the Spindrift encounters a strange space storm or wormhole, and is transported to a mysterious planet where everything is twelve times larger than its counterpart on Earth. The Spindrift crew calls the inhabitants "the giants". If an average Earth human is about six feet tall, an average "giant" would be about 72 feet tall. Everything on their planet is built to their scale ?N buildings, cars, animals, etc. The Spindrift crashes on this planet and becomes inoperable.
These giants are humanoid in form, but their society is a dictatorship of which not too many details are given, and that employs no symbols. The giant government has offered a reward for the capture of the tiny Earth people, presumably because of the Earth people's superior technology. Episodes often have the plot of giants capturing one of the passengers or crew, with the rest having to rescue the captured one. The Earth people avoid capture most of the time because their spaceship is hidden in a forest outside the city.
