The Time Tunnel - confusing order of episodes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Time Tunnel - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
I was looking forward to this but the episodes are all in the wrong order so it spoils one's enjoyment as no cliffhanger is continued in the following episode. One needs to watch them all in the wrong order before discovering which order they should be in!!!

Not really the "wrong order" - just production order as opposed to original broadcast order. And the omission of teasers for next week means that it makes no odds anyway, since apart from the first epsiode, each episode is stand-alone with no ongoing subplots carrying over.

But teasers make no sense whatsoever on DVD or Blu-ray... the point of a teaser is to get your excitement up for the next week to make sure you come back, not to show you what you will likely be watching in the next few seconds. Even if you're not going to watch more than one episode on the run, they don't need to make sure you come back back next week... you bought the damn DVD set.

When you buy a DVD set you expect it to be complete. Not chopped or messed around with. The American R1 version is complete and intact. Even the episodes on iTunes (UK), still retain the cliff hangers.

It doesn't matter if it's on DVD or not, the point is the cliffhangers were made to be part of the program. Some episodes dossolved into threm, so the endings are abrupt without them. There's not coming attractions, but made to be part of the show. The episodes are incomplete without them, woether it bothers you or not.

Exactly. I haven't got round to watching any more because it's going to be such a bore trying to watch them in the order in which they were designed. It's not good watching an episode which ends with them landing in 1910 if the next episode starts with them somewhen completely different!
