Trivia

This was a pilot for a series that was not picked up by the network. It was the second attempt in the 2000's to revamp the successful 1960's Irwin Allen series The Time Tunnel. Allen was the blockbuster TV producer of Lost In Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Land of the Giants. Like the other Time Tunnel reboot, both suffered from being too similar to the already successful and recent Stargate. See more »

Pilot as bad as Revolution. Will not watch further.
27 August 2013 | by ZubaczSee all my reviews

While I understand it is quite difficult to create a plausible sci-fi story, especially when it involves time travel, this show's plot holes were just ridiculous. The "time machine" itself, communication with the present, the explanation and simulation of the ripple effect, or practically any line of dialogue, that is relevant to the physics or logic of the time travel enterprise in this show, is just ridiculous. I found myself cringing, trying to find meaning or sense in the characters' conversations, only to come to the conclusion, that the producers put no effort into making any of the story plausible to a moderately intelligent human being.

The camera is decent and the acting isn't awful, considering the terrible script. The story is one that we've seen many times before.

Overall judging by the pilot, I would not recommend this show. It's downright insulting to any fan of Donnie Darko or Butterfly Effect and honestly even Hot Tub Time Machine shows time travel with more sense.
