Storyline

Astronaut Major Robert Gaines is the latest to orbit the Earth but something happens while there. Ground control loses all contact with him and although he returns safely, he apparently blacked out and has no recollection of what may have happened. Nor can he explain how the craft landed on land - completely undamaged - when it was meant to splash down in the ocean. When Gaines returns home he finds that little things are different: he's now a full colonel and has been for some time; his house now has a picket fence; he no longer seems to take sugar in his coffee; and even his wife senses he is different after she kisses him. It is soon apparent that Gaines has returned to an Earth in an alternate universe. Written by garykmcd

Two Worlds
4 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Steve Forrest stars as Earth astronaut Major Robert Gaines, who is returning from an orbit of his capsule, but after landing, begins to suspect something is wrong when there are little but noticeable discrepancies in how he remembered things being, and in fact this is true, as somehow he has landed in a nearly identical Earth(even his family), and both he and this world's authorities become determined to get him back, and retrieve "their" Robert Gaines! Fine concept for this series is oddly flat and dull, though still interesting enough to remain passable. Later film "Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun" with Roy Thinnes handled this premise better.
