Storyline

In 2006, an experiment of the Department of Energy in hot fusion to produce energy releases a storm in time along 240 minutes, changing history. Only the personnel in the core of the laboratory know the true story and now they need to fix points in the history that have been punctually changed. The bureaucrat and former Marine Doug Phillips is a family man that is recruited by his friend Flynn to join an expedition to 1944 due to his great knowledge of the Battle of Hürtgen Forest in Germany. The team formed by Doug, Flynn, Toni Newman, J.D. and Wix is assigned to find a monk from 1546 that has been accidentally transported to the spot and is the carrier of Black Plague. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Dr. Hector Belsky: These ripples show what the time storm is doing in the past.
Doug Phillips: In World War II?
Dr. Hector Belsky: Yes. If the ripples move an unseemly amount, we send a team back to attempt damage control.
Doug Phillips: Is that an unseemly amount?
Dr. Hector Belsky: Unfortunately, yes. This is the worst we've seen yet. Think of us as FEMA, Agent Phillips. We don't send a team in for a rain shower. We send a team in for a hurricane.

Excellent update of a classic series
8 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I couldn't disagree more with those who didn't like this 2002 pilot presentation. As a long-time fan of the original, I found this re-imagining both well-written and well-executed. True, its story borrows from the original series and from other time travel concepts that have aired over the last forty years, but it does a very good job of bringing many disparate ideas into a cohesive whole.

The series was not bought because its completion coincided with those of the Stargate series, which was most unfortunate. Fortunately, however, it now is included in the 'Time Tunnel' Volume Two DVD set just released by Fox, giving a great many people the opportunity to watch and judge it for themselves.

There are reports that the Sci-Fi Channel belatedly has picked up this pilot for regular series production and broadcast in 2007. If so, I for one will be a faithful viewer.
