From the unchallenged master of 1960s small screen sci-fi, Irwin Allen presents his boldest and most expensive show, Land of the Giants. Premiering in 1968, Giants has built up a devoted fan base over the past four decades, thanks to its heady mix of mind-blowing special effects, suspense and pure escapism.
It's 1983 and sub-orbital spaceship the Spindrift is en route from Los Angeles to London. Mid-flight, the craft is drawn into a terrifying space storm, forcing it to crash on a hostile planet where 'little people' are hunted down by giants. Join Captain Steve Burton and his crew and passengers as they battle for their lives in this complete collection of all 51 episodes of Land of the Giants!

Absolute classic series! I watched this as a kid, first time round. If you haven't seen it you should.
As stated by other reviewers, Land of the Giants has aged well and the picture quality is generally to a high standard. This series thankfully did not reach the level of fantasy that quickly ruined Irwin Allen's other series, notably Lost in Space and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. The quality of the writing is variable and, given the limitations of the premise, the storylines are predictably repetitive - peril with cat, peril with mad scientists, etc. The concept is far better handled in the film adaptation of Richard Matheson's The Incredible Shrinking Man, which takes a highly philosophical stance. Note that the packaging for this product has been updated and no longer contains the art codes stated above or the original series booklets. In fact, it's a rather cheap polythene plastic box with the DVDs in holders; the only attraction of having the two series in this format is therefore the content.
Land Of The Giants is great. I'm only on the first disc at the moment but I'm very happy and pleased to see an old favourite from the 60's. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
