5.0 out of 5 stars A Tumble through Time.. 15 Nov 2007
By Rod H VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For anyone who grew up in the sixties, and was interested in TV sci-fi, the name of Irwin Allen is a familiar one. He was the American TV producer who gave us 'Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea'. 'Lost In Space', and this, his third TV series 'The Time Tunnel'. His shows had high amounts of Fantasy but also some serious sci-fi concepts, and rarely a week went by without one or another of his shows being aired on both sides of the Atlantic. The Time Tunnel follows the adventures of 2 scientists who are trapped in time, and each week land in an eventful moment in History. From landing on the Titanic in the first episode, the series covers many periods both past and present, as the team back home try to retrieve the 2 scientists and bring them home. The 2 lead actors are engaging enough, and the set of the Time Tunnel itself is impressive. Every episode is solidly made, with Irwin Allen's talent for stretching his production budget reaching varying degrees of success as footage from existing movies are edited into the show to give each scenario more scope. Having said that, the episodes are rarely less than entertaining and the viewer finds himself becoming hooked on the show. The stories are good adventure yarns which end on a cliffhanger that leads into the next episode. For 60's TV, this has aged quite well and is good undemanding viewing for all ages. Sadly, only 30 episodes were made even though the show, I feel, had the potential to develop further and become a genuine TV classic.This volume contains the first 15 episodes, as well as some interesting extras which take a behind the scenes look at the show and the merchandise produced at the time. Worth seeking out even though it is only available as a region One release. I have already bought the second set and am looking forward to another tumble through time...

"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 left back where they started at the end of the final episode, so Fox's two volume remastered set of the series is certainly welcome. 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.

This first half of the 30 episode run sees the series still concentrating on the historical stories rather than the science fiction ones that took over as the ratings started to fall, but they're not recommended as history lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timediving with the originals 23 Feb 2009
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....."
(Intro of the most fantastic TV-serial)

In the years 1971 - 1972 I could watch thirteen episodes an I wanted to see more. Unfortunately I missed the transmission of all episodes on a private german tv station in 1996/97. There was no chance to buy any Time Tunnel movie in Germany. I found out, that amazon.com demanded half of the price that amazon.uk asked for. So I ordered the two boxes with 15 episodes each, but the are coded for Regional Player Code 1 (USA, Kanada and US foreign territories. But at amazon.de I could buy the codefree "United DVD-Player 7092" and my timediving could begin....

again and again....

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Time Travel 13 Jan 2011
By Miss M. Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 1968. The series has a glossy big production feel about it even though it was made with limited studio sets and old cinema footage from the cutting room floor. Irwin Allen bought up these un used clips from big blockbuster historical movies and incorporated them into the action of the show.
It is a series of pure escapism and great fun. The historical stories can be a little informative when you forgive the added fiction of Doug and Tony's role in them.
There are other stories that are science fiction in origin with aliens from space and magical powers of Merlin.
Irwin Allen had a good run with other similar shows like "Lost in space", "voyage to the bottom of the sea" and "Land of the giants". It is a great action series with a taster of the next episode at the end of each story.
There was only one series and this DVD version which is only playable on Region one, or Region free DVD players, is split into two volumes. This volume sees the first fifteen episodes and some special features.
