TIME TUNNEL PILOT DVD (NEW SERIES)
TIME TUNNEL 2002 UNAIRED TV PILOT EPISODE
This is "The Time Tunnel (2002) Unaired Pilot"
"Everything could change. Nothing is for certain.
The world that surrounds us even now is in jeopardy
from a threat never even dreamed: a time storm
unleashed and raging in our past. Your family, your
life, your love could be erased at any moment and you
wouldn't even realize it..."
Doug Philips (David Conrad) and Toni Newman
(Andrea Roth) are part of the team that must go
back in time and fight to keep our world just as
we know it. While Doug is the ultimate family
man, Toni is a loner. Their differences will
play out in very important ways when the series
puts them in situations with the potential to
change all of history.
Rounding out THE TIME TUNNEL team are: Wix
(Bob Koherr), a medic whose role on the team puts
him somewhere between lovable and lethal -- sometimes
both; and J.D. (Tawny Cypress), the razor-sharp, sexy
ex-CIA agent who has orders to "eliminate" anyone who
tampers with time. Overseeing everything is the
mysterious Belsky (Max Baker), the physics genius
responsible for opening the time tunnel, who now must
risk everything to correct his mistake.
Writer Rand Ravich and director Todd Holland ("Malcolm in
the Middle") present a 21st Century twist on time travel
in THE TIME TUNNEL, based on Irwin Allen's 1960s TV series.
This is "The Time Tunnel (2002) Unaired Pilot" on DVD.
(*) My review on this remake: I felt that this new pilot
made for televison was well done. The characters were a
little weak, but would have improved and develop in time.
The little I saw of the set was very impressive. The pilot
was a little to dark for my taste, comparing it to Irwin's
original series. There are rumors and talk that this new
series maybe still considered by one of the networks.
Total review of the series, two thumbs up!
