Those people in my generation will remember watching the Land of the Lost tv series when it first aired back in the 70’s. I was about 7 years old and I loved watching this show along with many other Sid and Marty Krofft productions. I enjoyed the series for the Sleestacks, Dinosaurs, and the funny monkey-like people with one of them looking like a young Clint Howard (which its not the same actor, its Phillip Paley). Over on, Will Ferrell seems that he will head up the big screen adaptation by playing the role of Rick Marshall (Spencer Milligan). The son, on the right, Will Marshall (Wesley Uere) always reminded me of Greg Brady (Barry Williams). As for Holly Marshall (Kathy Coleman) her braids did work for me but I was too young to know why.  (Too early for me think about who will play the kids.) I had a great time with the show until Rick sailed off literally after the first season in comes the Uncle Jack (Ron Harper, later in the Planet of the Apes tv series). He was a fine addition and the series still okay. I was just wondering if the new movie will remain simply campy or will it be a Ferrell-ized vechile like Elf, Anchorman, Talladega Nights; which is the extreme end of campiness? Below is are the lyrics to the show:

Marshall, Will and Holly
On a routine expedition
Met the greatest earthquake ever known
High on the rapids It struck their tiny raft (insert screams here)
And plunged them down a thousand feet below
To the Land of the Lost
To the Land of the Lost
To the Land of the Lost



I still want to know the answer to this Caveman series question. Is this Will Ferrell as a caveman weatherman?
