Seeing 20 user comments for Otherworld is a pleasant surprise for me. I
really thought I might have been the only one who remembers this unique
and fascinating science fiction series. Sad that it only ran for a few
episodes. I attribute that to poor marketing. With all the cable
outlets now, Otherworld definitely could have survived. I can see it
being a staple on the SyFy network now.
The show involves the American Sterling family touring Egypt where they
wander into the labyrinth of one of the pyramids and when they come out
find they're in a different dimension. And of course they stand out in
this Big Brother Orwellian type of planet. The idea was for them to get
back home somehow.
It's a thinking man's version of Land Of The Lost. The few episodes
there were and I saw were intelligently written and acted by the
players who were cast as the Sterlings. Father Sam Groom, Mother
Gretchen Corbett, and children Tony O'Dell, Chris Hebert, and Jonna Lee
were all just fine in the parts.
Too bad this show didn't catch on. Everyone should write in to the SyFy
Channel and beg them to buy these episodes.
