Veracruz, Cortez and Tlaxcaltepecs
26 January 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to Veracruz, Mexico, in 1519, when Hernando Cortez is searching the Golden Mask of the Tlaxcaltepecs that is a symbol of power for the Mexican tribes. When Cortez is ready to torture three natives, Doug and Tony tries to help them but are captured by the Spaniard soldiers. Meanwhile the Time Tunnel personnel hire a Mexican archaeologist to help them with landmarks in Veracruz to bring the scientists, but when the greedy man sees the Golden Mask, he bargains a deal to have the precious object.

In "Idol of Death", the time travelers meet Hernando Cortez in Veracruz and it is funny to see Doug worried about the massacre of the Mexican natives, apparently forgetting the conflicts with the natives in the American Indian Wars. The episode is entertaining, with Doug and Tony being caught in a time warp. My vote is seven.

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