GIANT'S PHOTO GALLERY #02
This two-season series details the adventures of the three crew and
four passengers of the sub-orbital spacecraft Spindrift. They are
drawn through a space warp that crashes them onto a planet where
everything is 12 times normal size. The castaways struggle to repair
their damaged craft and somehow get back to Earth while being hunted
by the totalitarian government that rule the planet.
Despite the inherent scientific impossibilities (something 12 times
as large would weigh 144 times as much, making it impossible for the
"giants" to move), Land of the Giants, the last of Irwin Allen's
four 60's s.f. programs, was highly-budgeted (about $250,000 an
episode: a record for the time), features some decent
characterization, and is another of the 60's shows to feature a
competent African-American in a leading role.
