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!

Starts the Whole Problem With Traveling Into the Past
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as the flawed science here, the charm of this brief series was the opportunity to relive major historical events and to meet significant historical figures. In the opening foray, Doug and Tony have two tasks. One is to save the program from extinction and the other is to deal with the events on the Titanic. Of course, they are going to try to dissuade the Captain from continuing his voyage on course and, hence, avoid the iceberg. As is also the case, like anyone who starts spouting craziness, the guys find their way to the brig. On they go in their efforts, pretty much failing, but discovering what made people tick and having respect for the events. So much contemporary information has come forward about the events of 1912, and with the huge blockbuster movie, this pales by example. Still, the boys are charming and it was a fun series.
