This show has some striking similarities to other television shows, which did become successful series, Stargate SG-1 & Sliders. Moreover, the formats are quite similar as well: 1. The viewer "travels" with the hosts to different worlds.
2. All involve scientific experiments which produce danger.
3. Both Sliders and Fantastic Journey are about travel to parallel universes.
4. All three involve different planets accessible only to a select team.
5. Both Sliders and Fantastic Journey are about people trying to find their way home.
6. Both Fantastic Journey & Stargate SG-1 have an alien in the cast.
7. Both Fantastic Journey and Stargate SG-1 are scripted by Katharyn Powers.
8. All three shows have a movie actor in the cast who played a supporting role in a big picture but was never an outright "star".
So for those who would like to see Fantastic Journey on TV again, don't fret! Technically, it did come back, just in a different skin!
