  • The sun is frozen in the sky and the dinosaurs are getting restless. Rick heads off to fink Enik but instead is forced into the library of skulls. What happens in there is hazy because of the mystic smoke.

    Will is preparing dinner and argues with holly. Dopey shows up and everything seems like a normal day. But they notice the sun has been in the same place for too long. Time has stopped and Rick heads off to the lost city to see if Enik can help fix the problem. Holly makes shure he takes one of the necklaces Ronnie gave her so they could keep an eye on what was happining to him. Rick cant find Enik but is instead captured and taken to the library of skulls. There he is exposed some mystic smoke and besides being given limited telepathic abilities he gets pretty out of it hallucinates many strange things. The kids see he is captured in thier necklaces and rush off to help him. they eventually find him but he is disorented dosent have his knife anymore and is not really shure what happened. He does seen to know that they need to go to a certian pylon and place a blue crystal in just the right spot to make the sun go down. while walking home they run across some sleestak but instead of hunting the marshalls, they leave Ricks knife in a log as an apparent sign of temporary peace. This episode is a wonderful example of how the writers could make a show that worked on many levels. It worked for children , it was very sci-fi and worked for thinking people and it was very trippy for the alternitive viewer. this is what land of the lost was about. perfect.
