Trivia

The sign announcing the Elvis concert was originally going to read "Beatles Reunion Tour", but since a few members of The Beatles were still alive at the time, Elvis was chosen as the celebrity in question since it would be less subtle in revealing Quinn was on an alternate world. See more »

Goofs

When Rembrandt is walking out to his car to go to the ball game where he is to sing the anthem, the audio is of him practicing the anthem. His lips, however, are not moving to the words. See more »

Quotes

Wade Welles: Oh man that was so great. It was like better than... than sex.
Prof. Maximilian Arturo: Well I wouldn't go that far.

A Great Show that went nowhere when it went to Sci-Fi channel
7 February 2003 | by (Florida Atlantic University) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show on its original network and thought that it was so great, I considered it to be my favorite show. But then after the third season, when beloved cast members Sabrina Lloyd and John Rhys-Davies left and then it went to Sci-Fi Channel, it got bad real quick. Then when they got rid of the O'Connell Brothers, that was it for me.
