Trivia

In this episode it is explained that a time differential exists between Thel and Earth; for every year that passes on Earth roughly 10 years pass on Thel. Princess Metra aka Kelly Bradford was transported to Thel in the 1960's but ruled the Metraplex province nearly 200 years ago. See more »

Do the Sterlings ever get back to earth?
11 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Sadly Otherworld came to an end with this 8th episode as it was never given a chance to find its audience. Judging from what I see on YouTube it's become quite a cult classic.

This episode has the Sterlings purchasing an old hot air balloon and they journey to another province in which Jonna Lee is hailed as returning princess. There's been an oppressive regime ruling in her absence headed by a Prime Manager Carolyn Seymour. While she has the power Jonna is going to see some changes made.

Not that Seymour is giving up that easily. It all leads to an interesting climax.

Jonna also finds some first love with one of her guard captains Hunt Block. They have some very tender scenes.

As the series was canceled abruptly we never do find out whether the Sterlings return. I'm so glad that this series has become such a focal point of interest with a legion of fans it seems to have.
