Tony and Doug see Halley's comet in 1910.

They don't come much better than this!

This is one of my three favourite episodes of The Time Tunnel.

The teaser sees a surprisingly pumped up Robert Colbert grab Paul Fix ("Oh come now") and Colbert walking outside to see an ugly planet-like ball in the sky. Then the teaser ends, the viewer knows they are in for a ride!

I am not sure why it is, but there is something really special about the spoken words in the hour. The thing that defines End Of The World is a general feeling of gusto in the acting, gusto in the direction and a clever use of stock music. This is Whit Bissell's finest hour. I first viewed this episode in February 1978 and have made an estimated 150 viewings of it over the years. Yes, it really is that good.
