Storyline

Doug and Tony are transported to 1895 to the French penal colony of the Devil's Island, a prison where political and criminal prisoners where sent and never leave, and are mistakenly taken as two runaway prisoners. They try to explain the mistake to the cruel commanders that do not accept their explanations. When the prisoners decide to help the charismatic Captain Alfred Dreyfus to escape, Doug and Tony try to tell them that this is a doomed plan since Dreyfus has never escaped from the hellish island.

Welcome to the Devil's Island, a Place Where Everybody Speaks English
18 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to 1895 to the French penal colony of the Devil's Island, a prison where political and criminal prisoners where sent and never leave, and are mistakenly taken as two runaway prisoners. They try to explain the mistake to the cruel commanders that do not accept their explanations. When the prisoners decide to help the charismatic Captain Alfred Dreyfus to escape, Doug and Tony try to tell them that this is a doomed plan since Dreyfus has never escaped from the hellish island.

"Devil's Island" is an episode that uses the same set of Krakatoa in "Crack of Doom". But the greatest flaw is the same of "Revenge of the Gods", i.e., Doug and Tony speak English in a French prison. Neither the scientists have ever been described as experts in other languages nor does the time travel experience through the Time Tunnel give any explanation to the language issue. My vote is seven.

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