Now on newstands Starlog issue November 370 Secrets Of Land Of The Giants. Definately a good read giving some great insight into the TV series.
I had nice conversations with both yesterday and they are doing very well. We spoke a bit about the LOTG dvd set and both are impressed by the detail that Fox put into them. They are also thrilled that American Life is playing the series which it's always nice to have your show currently running on TV.

If your are in the L.A. area please stop by the convention and visit with them. The LIS cast will also be in attendance.

In conjunction with my Irwin Allen Memories website I thought I would post a little tribute to Irwin Allen here with a blog. My personal favorites TV show wise have always been in this order LIS, LOTG, Voyage to the bottom of the Sea, Time Tunnel. Movie wise Towering Inferno is a personal favorite. I remember seeing that movie in theatres as a double feature with the James Bond hit Man With The Golden Gun.
