Did You Know?


The Battle of Gettysburg was fought in Pennsylvania during the first three days of July 1863. It was the Confederate Army's final attempt to invade the United States and force an armistice. After failing to secure the region, the army withdrew to Virginia, where its tactics changed from attack to defense. This battle is often considered the most important turning point of the American Civil War. See more »

Terrible and Inaccurate Episode
14 February 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to Gettysburg in the American Civil War. Tony is killed in an explosion, but the time tunnel personnel revive him with the shock of a power surge. Meanwhile Doug is saved by a Union major and wears the Yankee uniform. When the confederate Sergeant Maddox meets amnesic Tony, he believes he is a courier and he wears the confederate uniform. When Doug and Tony meet Machiavelli, who had accidentally been brought by the time tunnel, the man tries to manipulate the time travelers.

"The Death Merchant" is a terrible and inaccurate episode. The philosopher and writer Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli has researched the behavior of princes and wrote The Prince in 1513 and is considered the founder of the political science. This awful episode describes him as an evil man, in a total absence of research of history by the lazy writers. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Túnel do Tempo" ("The Time Tunnel")
