Storyline

Doug and Tony are transported to Russia on 16 June 1956, and sooner they receive an F-5 probe from the Time Tunnel personnel with the message "Meet Alexis". They meet the double agent Alexis that gives papers and free access to them to the facilities of the Russian Project A-13. They discover that Professor Anton Biraki has built a Time Tunnel very similar to theirs, and they have been assigned to pilot a doomed capsule in the first time travel. Meanwhile in the present days, Professor Biraki is in the United States offering his knowledge to the government. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

In the teaser, Doug looks at a discarded newspaper and says, "Today is June 16, 1956." They then go to meet Alexis at midnight. That would then make it June 17th after that. But all references to the date in the remainder of the show say that it is still June 16th. See more »

Good But Not Outstanding
21 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

The teaser and act one are fun with all that Tunnel communication with the two time travellers, then we see the other Time Tunnel of yesterday and we are thrilled with a sense of mystery. This hour is loaded with three outstanding male guest stars, Ansara being the best guest star of the three, and the story is just fine with me.

On the negative side: I never liked the actor playing "Jerry" in the Tunnel command centre and there is a lot of him in this hour. But others do like him I am told?

2nd negative: Episode composer Paul Sawtell was just fine when he scored the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961) motion picture and the pilot episode of the Voyage/Sea series (1964) but this guy also does some boring "funeral type music" (to quote another reviewer I once knew) and, sadly, the funeral music is present in Secret Weapon.

This hour is good but not outstanding.
