Land of the Lost, TOS
I recently recieved the Land Of The Lost TV series on DVD, and I'm watching it now. Ultra-cheap and cheesy special effects, overacting, and all, and it's still head, shoulders and several entire bodies above the 5 or so minutes I could stand to watch of the unbearable Will Ferrel parody.
I keep seeing the names of many of Science Fiction's greats in the "written by" credits. Now that I think back, I recall that as a child, most of my first impressions of common SF ad science concepts were shaped by Saturday mornings with the Marshalls. Time travel, paralllel universes, curved space, evolution, dinosaurs, etc.
I keep thinking of children's TV today and cringe at the thought of a generation raised on Spongebob someday being in charge of science budgets.
