Xeni and I are both freaking out about how much we loved this series as kids. Sid and Marty Krofft's Land of the Lost is truly a classic that provides even more entertainment now than it did as a child.
Join the picture perfect American Marshall family. Adventuring somewhere in the wildness are Marshall, his son Will and daughter Holly. When a random dimensonal portal opens up they are dramatically transported to THE LAND OF THE LOST. Here, they struggle amongst the wackiest looking dinosaurs, including one named Dopey, a small gaggle of awesome Pakuni and the fearsome yet mindless Sleestak.
For years I've pondered things like Cha-ka's strange dedication to Holly, the family's relationship to Grumpy the t-rex and that awful Dad for Uncle swap they pulled off. Now, with this complete set of each episode at hand I can rewatch favorites and bore my friends with insane minutiae. Perhaps I can finally figure out how those crystals worked.
I love the song played during the closing credits too...

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer.
