Storyline

Congress has poured seven billion dollars into a large and deep hole in the ground - the home of Project TicToc and its revolutionary new technology, the Time Tunnel. A mechanism intended to access past and future, the tunnel is not quite ready despite a decade of work and all the billions. Senator Clark declares his intention to cut funding and abandon the project. Desparate scientist Tony Newman uses the apparatus to send himself through time to prove the concept. But the TicToc team cannot retrieve him, and so his mentor Doug Phillips goes back to help Tony out of the peril he has landed in: he has arrived on the RMS Titanic mere days before she struck an iceberg and sank!

Sci-Fi & Titanic Disaster
7 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Two American scientists are lost in time thanks to The Time Tunnel.

Every cast member and guest star in this hour is outstanding, every turn of the story is well done, every word spoken is spoken with class and Irwin Allen directs the show (mainly the bits in the command centre) with a sense of epic showmanship. And the John Williams music score, well, a knockout from the tour of the command centre to the iceberg ending.

My god, I could go on for hours!

This might be a just a television show but I struggle to remember such a well done hour.

All 30 Tunnel episodes have something of interest.

Some are outstanding and some are just good but all are required viewing.

That is an amazing run of good episodes considering the series went in so many directions (history, the future, space, magic, etc).

Even the greatest TV shows of all time sometimes have a few stinkers...but not so with The Time Tunnel!
