Storyline

In 1815 one of the final battles of the War of 1812 was fought near New Orleans, Lousiana. Doug and Tony materialize behind British lines and soon find themselves in the custody of Colonel Southall, a man history records as "The Butcher" because of a disastrous mistake attacking the strongest side of Andrew "Old Hickory" Jackson's fortifications. Southall believes the chrononauts can supply tactical information and he'll stop at nothing to get it. Meanwhile, Southall's descendant, a general in the modern British Army, visits the TicToc complex to explain what his ancestor is likely to do. But General Southall, unknown to anyone else, is dying - and so it may well be his actions that are the most unpredictable. Written by CommanderBalok

The Battle in New Orleans
17 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to New Orleans and Tony steals two buckskins for them to dress. They are captured by the British Seventh Royal Regiment commanded by Colonel 'The Butcher' Southall; they find that they are behind the British lines in the War of 1812 against the United Kingdom and they are mistakenly taken as being spies due to military passes found in the pockets of their clothing. They go to a partial court martial and sentenced to be executed by firing squad by The Butcher. Further they realize that the day is 07 January 1815, the eve of ultimate attack of Colonel Southall to the strongest side of Commander Andrew Jackson's defenses, when the British officer led his men to a slaughter. Meanwhile General Kirk invites the British General Phillip Southall, who is a descendant of The Butcher, to visit The Time Tunnel facility to feed the personnel with information about his ancestor.

"The Day the Sky Fell In" is an episode too related to the North American history relative to a battle in New Orleans in the War of 1812 against the United Kingdom. The plot is a kind of mouse-and-cat game of the scientists and the British soldiers and is one of the less attractive shows of this series. My vote is six.

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