Land of the Lost

Land of the Lost was a Saturday Morning television show about Rick Marshall and his two teenage children; Holly and Will. The family was teleported through a portal to an alternate dimension where dinosaurs still roam. The family is trying to return to our world. During this time they are attempting survive in the wild while being chased by dinosaurs and Sleestak. While many of the dinosaurs are harmless, there is a tyrannosaurus rex who took an unhealthy interest in the family.

The Sleestak are a hostile reptilian race who are intelligent and walk on two legs. As they were people dressed in lizard suits, they looked like humans except with scales and other reptilian features. They often fought against not only the Marshall family, but also against a less advanced hominid species, which dwelled in caves, called Pakuni.

While Land of the Lost is geared towards children, it may not be suitable for all ages. Some younger children may find the Sleestak to be a bit scary, although the special effects and costuming are primitive compared to shows produced today. The show did garner a cult following and has been referenced in later science fiction shows such as Far Scape.
