- Episode 6
A small aircraft with 7 people and a dog on board crash after a
severe storm and when they get out they learn they are trapped, not
on Earth, but on a strange planet of giants!
They are literally small enough to be held in a hand of a giant!
And that happens often in the series!
Utilizing many giant props and unique camera techniques shot from
above, the show really lets you believe the storyline is possible!
In one episode a giant was shrunk down to the castaway's size!
6. The Flight Plan
Guest Starring Linden Chiles (Joe/Loca)
The Earthlings find another Earthling, an amnesiac who thinks his
name is "Joe", on the run from two giants. They take him back to
the Spindrift, although Steve isn't happy with the decision. Joe is
dressed in a pilot's uniform, but is unable to remember anything
about his past. Steve and Joe get recaptured by the same two giants
and taken back to their lair, but manage to escape.
The castaways are convinced of Joe's credentials since he helped
Steve escape, but Steve is somewhat suspicious at the ease of their
escape. Joe angrily defends himself then wanders off, and Betty
goes to follow him...only to find out he is in league with the two
giants. They have discovered a pill that shrinks giants down to
human size, and plan to take the crew captive, learn how to fly the
ship, and then take it back to Earth for its advanced technology.
Betty is held prisoner, and Joe convinces the others he knows where
some ion propellant is that they need to repair the ship. They get
the isotope but Joe gets captured and the rest come back to rescue
him. Joe, repenting of his evil ways, confronts his partners (who
have captured everyone but Steve). Steve uses the explosive isotope
to force the giants to release the others, and Joe takes it and
holds his partners at bay long enough for the Earthlings to escape.
The building blows up, leaving a dead, restored-to-normal-sized
