Did you know that Walter Koenig (who, by the way, told me Happiest Days was "delightful," Squee!) created the character of Enik on Land of the Lost? Did you know that Harlan Ellison wrote a story for the show that was never produced? Oh! Oh! Oh! Did you know that David Gerrold came up with a whole backstory for the eponymous land that makes sense?!
When they announced it, I though io9 was going to be snotty, too cool for the room, and hideous (like most Gawker blogs, which seem to have have an attitude I outgrew in my twenties.)
They're proving me wrong (like my opinion counts, right?) with content that's consistently interesting and cool, and commentary that doesn't seem to fit into the smug, condescending, dismissive tone that seems to be the Gawker model. It's almost like they realized who their target audience is, and -- gasp -- actually respect and speak to that audience.
Speaking of Land of the Lost: did it scare the living daylights out of anyone else? I remember being scared by most of the Krofft shows, because they all seemed to feature kids who get separated from their parents and sent into a weird world from which they can never return, but Land of the Lost terrified me, even though the kids had their dad with them. Maybe it was because I was a young geek with an overactive imagination, but when I was nine or ten, it seemed to be the most plausible of all the Krofft shows.
Oh, and if you're a fan of the Krofft shows, you should track down a copy of Pufnstuf & Other Stuff. It's awesome.
