The Sterling family goes on vacation to Egypt and visits one of the pyramids. However, they get lost while wandering around in the labyrithine interior of the pyramid. When they finally make it out of the pyramid, they discover that they're no longer on Earth. Instead, they've somehow been transported to another planet. And the natives (run by an autocratic dictator) aren't very friendly... Written by
For it's time it was a interesting show. It tried to center on different cultures (the zones) and show its weaknesses and straights. Too bad that it didn't get the time to grow to a show with a lot more potential. 8 episodes isn't much time to get the actors and the idea (which is more complex than it originally anticipated: showing a lost in space idea on earth.) to such a degree that they are able to get the message across about different cultures. Maybe it is best to compare it for a bit with sliders. Sliders tried the same concept and shows that such a series can get a solid audience. In all a show worth watching so you can get an idea how a little idea can form a basis for a nice TV series. (the music is also worth mentioning: if you'voe heard it once, you will remember it forever. great music for it's time!!)
