Trivia

This episode takes place in Troy on April 23, 1184 BC. See more »

Goofs

Mounted warriors are shown using saddles with stirrups. Saddles did not come into use in Europe until 200 BCE and stirrups arrived about 650 CE, 1,000 and 1,850 years, respectively, after the events depicted here. The stirrup is what made mounted warriors practical; around 1200 BCE, horses would have been limited to drawing war chariots. See more »

Highly Entertaining G-Rated Look At Troy, Without Bloody Brad Pitt
16 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Tony and Doug appear in the Mediterranean in the age of Troy and the Trojen Horse. The travellers are confused as "Gods".

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea fans like me will struggle with the casting of the character Paris, played by the late Paul Carr. Carr appeared in half a dozen Voyage/Sea episodes as a wimp seaman and seeing him in Tunnel as a mighty and brave figure requires just too much imagination from some. Revenge Of The Gods appeared shortly after Carr did his last Voyage/Sea so I can only guess that Irwin Allen wanted to butch-up the image of Paul Carr.

But having said all this, the other guest stars in this hour really shine and create a gusto charged theatrical edge to this hour that leaves the 2004 motion picture - Troy - for dead. Troy (2004) may of created a massive set as the city of Troy, and it gets full marks for that, but give me Revenge Of The Gods any day.

In production order (not screening order), this was the 4th episode of Time Tunnel and there is a high energy feeling in the hour (note the Leith Stevens score and editing) because everything was still so new.

The score should go down well with Lost In Space fans as, at one stage in the Tunnel itself, we hear the exact same music used in LIS's Blast Off Into Space. Also, in the teaser, we see that the time travellers are on the second season LIS alien planet set!

But this is no LIS meets Tunnel hour, it is a G-Rated look at Troy and the Trojen Horse story, and considering that Troy (2004) was such a blood bath, I am sure that some parents will welcome Revenge Of The Gods with open arms. I know I do.

But then again, I am not big on all this talk of Tony and Doug being confused as "Gods", about the only regular character in this series who behaved like a god was Whit Bissell as General Kirk, in the teaser Ann struggles to find out the time the travellers have landed in, a bothered Kirk responds with "You will have to do better than that". Just joking, I love General Kirk.

I am probably sending out confusing messages about why I like this episode, let me just say that, despite a few problems, the hour does create a feeling of being in the theatrical-style distant past, that alone makes Revenge Of The Gods highly entertaining.
