The Time Tunnel - The Complete Series [DVD] 
Oh dear, what have Revelation done? As with their Land of the Giants and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea DVDs, Revelation have put The Time Tunnel episodes in production order.
I personally like watching shows in production order, since you get to see the natural evolution of a show and this worked with Voayage and especially Land of the Giants. Unfortunately in placing the episodes of The Time Tunnel in this order the original endings with the preview of the following weeks show have been cut out. There is a montage of these on the bonus disc, which I could have lived with, except for one inexcusable thing, lost scenes. On Disc 1 At the end of the episode One Way to the Moon, Doug and Tony are left stranded on the moon pondering thier fate, then the end titles abruptly cut in. On the transmitted version there is a futher scene at the Time Tunnel complex where the scientists switch Doug and Tony to another time period. I've not had a chance to view all the episodes, but I'm hoping there aren't any more abruptly cut scenes. The extras are really good and the picture quality is good, however, because of the way the episodes appear to be butchered, which has spoilt my viewing pleasure, I can only give 2 stars.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I'll stick with my earlier Region 1 discs with the full cliff hanger endings then.

I sent an e-mail to revelation about the missing scene. But, surprise surprise, I've not heard anything.

Yes thanks. I got a reply tuesday, saying that when old stocks run out, they will produce a corrected disc and send it out. Could have a long wait methinks.
