By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Even though it marks most of the worst episodes as it moved from bowdlerising history (this time they find themselves in Jericho, at Gettysburg, dealing with Billy the Kid, Cortez, Robin Hood, Merlin and facing Nero's ghost in WW1 Italy) to standard alien invasion plots (one even featuring Robert Duvall) as the budgets shrank and the same guest stars became increasingly recycled in different roles, this second volume of the last 15 episodes of the series does have a great ending that brings the show literally full circle. And it's a surprisingly impressive DVD on the extras front too, although it definitely looks like the soundbite interviews with Robert Colbert, James Darren, Whit Bissell and Lee Meriwether were intended for a documentary that got abandoned, leaving us with just the raw footage.

Aside from the 1976 Irwin Allen-Rod Serling Time Travellers TV movie shot on the New York sets built for Hello Dolly, the real surprise is how good the failed 2002 pilot for a proposed new version of the series is: there are some casting problems and the new tunnel is nowhere near as cool as the original and far too close to the Stargate TV series, but the revamped premise is neat - they have to go back to repair faults in history unleashed by an experiment and which only they are aware of - and packs a fair bit of emotional value too. With a few tweaks and some recasting it could have been a winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Volume Two really shows Allen's frugality 21 Jun 2008
Irwin Allen's cost-consciousness gets a workout in the second half of this compilation of episodes from his single-season science fiction adventure. Not only did the show continue its use of stock footage from earlier theatrical films, there was an over-utilization of Bernard Herrmann music, especially themes/melodies from "Garden of Evil" and the classic "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

Watching the episodes back to back, one realizes how frequently a group of actors appeared in that single season. Though they would be assaying different roles, actors John Crawford, John Hoyt, Kevin Hagen, Vitina Marcus, Vincent Beck, Malachi Throne, Michael Ansara, Rhodes Reason, and Lawrence Montaigne would repeatedly find themselves, like stars James Darren ("Tony") and Robert Colbert ("Doug"), "trapped in the annals of time." In addition to this group, the following actors, who would be featured in other Allen productions, would be seen: Abraham Sofaer, Victor Jory (a standout in "The Pirates of Devil's Island"), future Oscar winner Robert Duvall, Arthur Batanides, Regis Toomey, Ronald Long, and Lew Gallo.

Heather Young is featured in the final episode and would later go on to appear as one of the stars of Allen's "Land of the Giants". The ever-popular Del Monroe ("Kowalski" from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea") appears in one episode, also.

The sharp eye will notice some of the same set pieces from Allen's other television shows: the "computers" and other flashing gizmos, ray guns, and that ever present silver ALIEN makeup.

As far as the "extras" go, they are a curious lot. The unaired fifty-minute 2002 pilot owes about as much to its premise to the original series as it does to the Sci-fi Channel's popular "Stargate SG-1" show.

Although I wasn't born yet when it orinally aired, I saw the rerun.
It is different than other SciFi series but still worth the look
