Okay But It Needed More Punch
4 January 2017 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

A device is able to transport little people all over the place.

Several season two episodes had all this whiz bang giant technology that was not available on the giant land in season one. I don't like the change in premise. The giants were more interesting in year one when they seemed more primitive than the little people...now after all these hours about fancy machines (robots, strange stuff on the "other side of the planet", etc) the giants now seem more advanced than the little folk.

However I am an Irwin Allen nutcase, and there is a nice Time Tunnel feeling with all these people vanishing into thin air at key moments and the sometimes clumsy guard is played by Patrick Culliton who was a guard/seaman on Seaview in Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. His role in Panic is perhaps the largest role he ever did for Irwin Allen between 1964 and about 1978.

Also, lots of nice blinking light hardware to look at.

With all these interesting guest stars all over the place (including the usually wonderful Mark Richman), Panic should have been better than it is, I think we can blame the director and perhaps the sleepy musical score...this episode just needed more punch!

But it is okay and it holds you from beginning to end.
