serie tvThe Lost World

Un inaccessibile altopiano dell’Amazzonia è rimasto escluso dal cammino evolutivo del resto della fauna tropicale sudamericana e, dunque, risulta ancora popolato da specie altrove estinte da milioni di anni. Il professor George Challenger è uno zoologo giunto sul posto alla testa di una spedizione scientifica: a popolare la foresta non ci sono però soltanto dinosauri e altre creature mostruose, ma anche un’antichissima e misteriosa civiltà, che non accoglie nel migliore dei modi i visitatori occidentali. La sfida dello scienziato positivista agli oscuri, esotici misteri dei continenti extraeuropei fa da cornice a una lunga serie di episodi fantastici, sviluppata dagli autori puntata dopo puntata attingendo, non senza ironia, all’amplissimo immaginario classico del genere. Completano il cast l’infallibile cacciatore John Richard Roxton, il giornalista Edward Ned T. Malone, la volitiva finanziatrice della spedizione Lady Marguerite Krux e la bionda Veronica Layton, affascinante ragazza cresciuta nella giungla dopo la sparizione dei due genitori esploratori.

3x10 - Compagni d'armi

When Keeran Raiders attack, a deadly poison dart forces Malone to relive a long-suppressed memory-his baptism of fire as a battlefield correspondent in World War I. Caught up in this nightmarish hallucination, Malone is once again an untried reporter cut off from Allied lines when an enemy advance pushes deep into No Man's Land. When the three battle-weary British soldiers who've been assigned to escort him are picked off by enemy action, the young reporter who's never fired a gun must take up arms to save his own life and the life of a wounded sergeant.

3x11 - L'era glaciale

When a blindingly bright meteor strikes the Plateau, Challenger, Roxton, and Marguerite set out to investigate the impact site. But the closer they get, the colder the temperature becomes. As the explorers turn back, they discover what appears to be a victim of the intense cold - a beautiful, blue-skinned woman, unconscious and nearly frozen. To save her life, the explorers take her back with them. When the frigid temperatures reach the Treehouse and all attempts to warm the woman makes her condition worse, Challenger suspects that things are not as they appear. Roxton and Marguerite are attacked by a group of blue-skinned male warriors and the truth becomes clear - the heat-absorbing meteorite now buried in the Plateau is the first step in a terrifying invasion of creatures who need the cold to survive.

Transported to her domain - a bleak and desolate wasteland - Roxton must face a series of challenges if he hopes to get out alive. And to make the game more interesting, Death raises the stakes by putting the lives of his friends on the line as well. Confronted by shifting rules and deception, Roxton cannot hope to win. At every turn, Death torments and goads him, encouraging him to abandon his friends to save himself. Round one goes to Death, rounds two and three as well, and with growing horror, Roxton loses Challenger, Veronica, and finally his beloved Marguerite to Death's netherworld inferno.

To her surprise, the handsome musician, Thomas Ducart, announces that he wrote the beautiful melody for her. Flattered by the musician's attention, Veronica takes him to the Treehouse, but Challenger is concerned. He fears that Ducart's village may be unstable, and Veronica could disappear into another dimension if she returns to the village with Ducart. Even more disturbing, are Challenger's ill feelings about Ducart's designs on Veronica, but Challenger's warnings only drive the beguiled Veronica further into Ducart's passionate embrace.

L'ossessione lo conduce alla follia che lo pone di fronte a due opposte allucinazioni. La prima è una visione di sé stesso come era da giovane, la seconda è la sua amata moglie, Jessie, come egli la lasciò a Londra, tre anni prima. In preda all'angoscia e alla morte, Challenger viene finalmente scoperto dai suoi amici. Ma la loro limitata conoscenza medica sarà sufficiente a invertire le devastazioni del suo esperimento, senza metterlo in pericoli ancora più grandi?
