Reviews

From the creative genius of Irwin Allen comes one of the most popular and original sci-fi shows of the 1960s, starring James Darren and Robert Colbert!

The control of time is potentially the most valuable treasure that man will ever find. Or so believe the scientists of Project Tic Toc. Located beneath the Arizona desert, the ten-year project s focus is the feasibility of time travel. But when the government reconsiders the project, the scientists have only 24 hours to prove their untested Time Tunnel will actually work. Determined to save the project, Dr Tony Newman and Dr Doug Phillips go through the tunnel and quickly find themselves catapulted from one historical event to another, barely escaping with their lives as their colleagues back in Arizona race to figure out a way to bring them back home.

Time Tunnel is a classic series produced by Irwin Allen in the mid 1960s. It is one series of four successful shows. The others being Lost in Space, Land of the Giants and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. All of which have been released in America on Region one. 20th Century Fox Television released the classic three series of Lost in Space on DVD way back in 2003 to 2005 on Region 2, and it seems logical they would have released the other shows but it has taken them until this year 2011 for them to finally get on with it. So it has been a long time coming and a welcome release since Region one copies have been too expensive or difficult to play. It will be a great relief to many fans when they are finally released.
Dr Doug Phillips and Dr Tony Newman head a team working on a machine that can transport people back or forward in time. They work at a research centre, hidden beneath the Arizona Desert. They have perfected how to send something into time and locate their position but not how to bring it back. Time Travel is possible through "The Time Tunnel".
Doug and Tony need more time to perfect it but a government official arrives to inspect the progress of the project and decides that he may recommend closing down the project. Tony desperately enters the Tunnel to prove that it works. He finds himself transported back to 1912 on board the Titanic the day before it sinks. Knowing that they cannot bring him back, and that Tony is in danger, Doug follows him into the Tunnel. Every episode takes the pair to different and famous events in time.
The Time Tunnel was created by Irwin Allen in 1966. It was set two years into the shows future 1968.

Why oh why oh why? What *were* they thinking?!

It's one thing to bring us the episodes in production order as opposed to broadcast order. I have no problem with that at all. But I cannot for the life of me fathom why this means having to completely omit from the end of each episode the "teaser" for "next week's fantastic adventure" that was a much-loved feature of this series.

The logic behind this becomes even more puzzling when you discover that the teasers have been included separately as extras on the bonus disk. Surely it would have been just as easy (and would have made a whole lot more sense) to simply shuffle them around where necessary and tag them seamlessly onto the end of each episode to tie in with the production order. But apparently the thinking at Revelation was "why go down the sensible route when you can make such a ham-fisted dog's breakfast of it?"

On the plus side, the DVD transfers (based on the 5 random episodes I've watched so far) appear to be very good indeed. The picture quality is very clean and sharp, with excellent colour. I did notice some very faint, thin vertical lines here and there on "Raiders From Outer Space". But all in all an excellent effort indeed, especially considering that the source material is now almost half a century old.

There are some very nice extras too, principally in the form of the unaired but very promising-looking 2002 pilot for a new "Time Tunnel" show that the networks sadly didn't pick up (those idiot U.S. TV execs strike again) and the "Time Travellers" TV movie. But the butchered, teaser-less endings of each episode and the gimmicky (but spartan) lenticular packaging (not even an episode list on the cover, let alone a nice glossy booklet packed with fascinating factoids) mean that I can only give this package a three-star rating.

THE TIME TUNNEL is a wonderful offering from Irwin Allen (his favorite series). It's only flaws are inaccurate renderings of history and too many "alien" episodes. Yet it is well worth seeing, but NOT on this DVD set! Why? Because the episodes each have four minutes of story edited out with a running time of 46 minutes each instead of 50! What is missing is the entire end segments which shows the beginning of the next adventure. This has always been broadcast as part of the show including on the Sci-Fi Channel and U.K.'s Channel Four. This is the first time ever the conclusion of each episode has been cut off and presented on a "bonus" disc as "trailers". To add insult to injury, the trailers are not viewable individually, but as a two-hour-long mess. Another gripe is that the series is not shown in the correct order on disc one.

Forget this set and buy the "complete" episodes in the U.S. NTSC edition!

Format: DVD
"Two American scientists are lost in the swirling maze of past and future ages, during the first experiments on America's greatest and most secret project, the Time Tunnel. Tony Newman and Doug Phillips now tumble helplessly toward a new fantastic adventure, somewhere along the infinite corridors of time."

The Time Tunnel wasn't one of Irwin Allen's most successful series - it only ran one season - but thanks to syndication it managed to gain a fairly loyal following even after its two accidental time travellers were literally left no better off than when they started at the end of the final episode, so Fox's two volume remastered US set of the series was certainly welcome, but it's suffered some terrible and hugely damaging cuts in its trip across the Atlantic to UK DVD.

The show's ambitions were never really matched by its budget - although it was a costly Technicolor series (shot by the Oscar winning cinematographer of She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Winton C. Hoch, no less, while The 7th Voyage of Sinbad's Nathan Juran directed several episodes and John Williams contributed the memorable title music), part of the fun would be spotting the rehashed costumes, standing sets, music (particularly Bernard Herrmann's King of the Khyber Rifles and Franz Waxman's Prince Valiant) and stock footage from films like Helen of Troy or 300 Spartans for the various historical periods Robert Colbert and James Darren would fall into while Whit Bissell, Lee Meriwether and John Zaremba tried hopelessly to bring them back to present day 1968 in the impressively designed giant underground time tunnel complex.
