The Time Tunnel - Volume Two
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Determined to prove that Project Tic Toc was capable of sending humans through time, Dr. Tony Newman and Dr. Doug Phillips entered the project's time tunnel before final tests were completed. Now, caught in time and unable to return home, the two scientists battle to stay alive as the Vortex of Time thrusts them into the middle of some of the most significant events in world history. But even more important, as the time travelers encounter famous and influential people of the past, they must make sure their actions don't inadvertently change history and alter the future.
Among this series' enduring charms are the obvious use of footage from theatrical films to clumsily boost production values, as well as some of the more juvenile dialogue. When they learn of one alien plot to attack earth, our heroes proclaim, "We can't let them do it." Time ran out on the Tunnel after only one season. Its cancellation left Tony and Doug to seemingly forever tumble "along the infinite corridors of time" en route to some "new fantastic adventure." Thanks to DVD, we can join them time after time. --Donald Liebenson

Though the writing quality of some of the episodes tended to deteriorate in the second half, there were still some fine episodes in this bunch. KILL TWO BY TWO plunges our heroes onto a Pacific Island where a sad chapter of World War Two plays out.
CHASE THROUGH TIME features three time-transfers sending the scientists over a two million year timespan.Read more ›
It is at this midway point in the season that producer-creator Irwin Allen broadens the series' premise to include capricously outlandish encounters with Robin Hood, Merlin the Magician, the wrathful spirit of the Roman Emperor Nero and even extraterrestrial beings (on four separate occasions).
Featured celebrity guest-stars and veteran film and tv performers impressively in evidence are Robert Duvall, Mako, Robert Walker, Jr., Eduardo Cianelli, Malachi Throne, Michael Ansara, Byron Foulger, Richard Jaeckel, Myrna Fahey, Allan Case, Paul Mantee, Abraham Sofaer, Lawrence Montaigne, Christopher Carey, Mabel Albertson, Anthony Caruso, Vitina Marcus, Del Monroe, Michael Pate, Donald Herron, John Hoyt, Lisa Gaye, Arthur Batanides, Jan Merlin, Peter Brocco, Ronald Long, Phillip Ahn, Arnold Moss and John Saxon.Read more ›
It was so sad to know that this show only made 30 episodes at the time. It wasnt by any means a ratings failure either. Like "Gilligan's Island"...some executives decided that they had a better show to put in its place at the last minute which in the end was a mistake for them anyway.
They had already thrown a fantastic party for another season. The show was just getting off the ground when it was cancelled.
The first half of this set Volume 1 shows just how great a new show can be in its first year. Unforgettable episodes like "The Day The Sky Fell In" and "Invasion" are classic reasons why this show has stood so long all these years even being a one season show.
The next set is even more fantastic as we are introduced to aliens when Tony and Doug come across them when their thrown onto their spacecraft in the year 1883. There would be two more run ins with aliens in the final episodes, but between them comes the best episode of the whole series "Chase Through Time"..that should have been saved for last as season finale instead of "Town Of Terror"
The final seven episodes of the series are missing the best part of the show and that is the narration of how the Tunnel started, we are replaced with them tumbling threw the vortex to their next destination which in the very beginning of the show no one in the complex could see till they landed and they got a probe on them, someone changed that and made a small mistake.
Finally, the only choice one can make from this show is that the show goes in a loop as Tony and Doug go back to their first landing which was the Titanic...Read more ›

This series is so entertaining. The writing and plot lines may be in the field of controlled disclosure, in other words, more truth than fiction. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Starlite
A great series from Irwin Allen that makes you fall in love with history (and perhaps science fiction for the episodes based in the future).Published 3 months ago by Charles A. Vucetich
Like most of these "old" TV series, when you get them they don't seem as good as when I was young. Still enjoy trying to remember the episodes.Published 3 months ago by goducks
