Land of the Giants

The Spindrift, a commercial spaceship on a flight from New York City to London, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers.

    Although the series ran for two years (1968 thru 1970), the first 12 episodes were filmed in the summer and fall of 1967 to meet the original planned start of the series which would have been January, 1968. The network was originally planning to use "Giants" as a mid-season replacement show. Since nothing needed replacing on their schedule, the series's premiere date was pushed back to Fall 1968 where it inevitably replaced Irwin Allen's "Voyage" series on the schedule. The 1967 start of the series' filming helps explain the difference in appearance of actor Stephen Arngrim from year one to year two, because in actuality THREE years have transpired over the course of the series 51 episodes!

    Often dismissed by science fiction "purists" such as Harlan Ellison, because of the sheer physical impossibility of such "giants" possibly existing, as their mass (which would increase geometrically while their strength only increased proportionately) would crush them. The novelization of the series (by Murray Leinster) attempted to account for this. No such explanation is ever given in the series.
