I didn’t get many chances to see this as a kid, but I do remember thinking it was pretty exciting at the time.
We watched the first episode last night on Hulu and my kids had a good laugh. It’s got the same old-time charm for me as Ark II and Space Academy.
One thing I noticed is that they refer to “Grumpy” as a “Tyrannosaur.” This is always how I’ve referred to Tyrannosaurs, though I think it was the standard until Jurassic Park started everyone calling them “T-Rex.” Which I’ve always thought was pretty lame.
UPDATE: Fixed the video.
