The Time Tunnel: Volume 1 & 2 [Fox - $39.98 each]

With the success of the sci-fi series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (based on his film of the same name) producer/director Irwin Allen brainstormed a show about a pair of scientists tapped in a time machine. He would send Dr. Doug Phillips (Robert Colbert) and Dr. Tony Newman (James Darren) on a fantastic voyage through the eons, all part of a secret government experiment gone horribly wrong. Representing an attempt to bring serious action and adventure to the small screen, it failed to click with audiences. Of all Allen’s shows put on during the ‘60s, The Time Tunnel remains the shortest-lived, lasting only a single season. Ripe for reconsideration, Rhino’s two volume collection provides all 30 episodes of the criminally underrated series. [Amazon]
