Politically Incorrect Episode
3 December 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to 1886 to the British India in the border of Afghanistan. Doug is captured by the men of the rebel Hara Singh that is organizing an uprising called Night of the Long Knives against the invaders from Afghanistan. Tony meets the journalist Rudyard Kipling in the beginning of his career and they head to the British garrison; together they try to convince Colonel Fettretch to attack the Indians and rescue Doug. Meanwhile, the time tunnel personnel are having troubles to give a magnetic fix on Doug and Tony in time.

"Night of the Long Knives" is a politically incorrect episode where the nationalists are the "bad guys" and the British invaders are the "good guys". Again the production uses stock footage for most of the battle scenes. My vote is four.

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