Storyline

The Sterling family goes on vacation to Egypt and visits one of the pyramids. However, they get lost while wandering around in the labyrithine interior of the pyramid. When they finally make it out of the pyramid, they discover that they're no longer on Earth. Instead, they've somehow been transported to another planet. And the natives (run by an autocratic dictator) aren't very friendly... Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Otherworld was my all time favorite show as a child, etc.
13 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Ah, if only it would have met a similar longevity and cult status as Star Trek or Dr. Who. Yes it was cheesy 80's; yes often the acting was bad. However, I admire the boldness of the producers to do something different in the midst of an era when sci-fi was nearly extinct on prime time TV and sitcoms ruled. I as a child with Asperger's syndrome loved this show so much that it became one of the most influential shows in my life. It later attracted me to the Dr. Who series, which I was highly addicted to in middle school. I was able to get a friend to tape a couple of the episodes replayed on USA network as I lived in the country and he had cable. However, he had an ancient C-band satellite dish with a rotten descrambler.

I spent a full nine years of my life looking for the final episode (#8) that I missed as the stupid local fake TV Guide said that it wasn't showing but a Garfield episode instead (I couldn't check b/c my parents had taken away my TV privileges due to my damn abusive 5th grade teacher who I still haven't fully forgiven). Finally, in my very first experience with the modern HTTP internet (not the old FTP and telnet stuff) I browsed the Sci-Fi channel's site and to my surprise found all eight episode's airdates in their series collection. I bought the highest quality standard VHS tapes that I could buy and now have all the episodes to enjoy all over again (unfortunately they edited out some parts, like when Smith Sterling was playing with the air gun (it shot commander Kroll in one of the last scenes- which WAS included)). Now I would like direct film transfer copies to DVD, but have been unable to attain them (I could digitally enhance them someday:)

Currently, my favorite show is Stargate-SG1. It is otherworld to the max, but with a 90-2k's twist. As the social part of my brain is finally maturing in my mid 20's, I find some of the roles over-simplified and predictable, but overall, this series continues to improve with time. I get fed-up with its scientific inconsistencies like all the Star-Trek series, but overall it has top priority on my VCR.
