Trivia

Even though the production of the show went on continuously between seasons three and four, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by FOX, and picked up by Syfy, making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000). The visual effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been cancelled by FOX before being resurrected by the Syfy Channel, which left the show with an overall lower production budget.

Goofs

When the vortex is created (to enter) it is often shown sucking things into it (usually for plot purposes) yet it is also often shown blowing their hair, debris, etc. away before they jump/slide. See more »

Once a pretty good show
21 February 2003 | by (Stroudsburg, PA) – See all my reviews

I think most people familiar with the show would say that it started off as a really original and interesting show. The 'what if" concept really worked for it. But as time went on, the show became something worse than repetitive. It abandoned the original premise of the show. They stopped being mainly concerned with getting home and started being more concerned with these Kromag things. That's about where the original cast started to fall away one by one. They still show re-runs on the sci-fi channel, and I catch the early ones when I can. That's when the show was enjoyable. In the last half of the shows six seasons, it was unwatchable.
