Good old Harry Knowles has pointed out that there’s a 2002 pilot for a TV series reboot of the classic Time Tunnel up to be seen. Sadly, the pilot never got developed into a full TV series, but still. Here it is for posterity and your viewing pleasure…

    Love it. I really like the story line which comes with a twist – in that they have to go back to the past to preserve the present which (surprise surprise) have already been changed once via the “240” time storm.

    The storyline definitely has more depth and intrigue ; and the characters have more “soul” in them when compared to the rather straight forward time traveller story of the original TV series … but that of course was created in another time (… sorry couldn’t resist that one).

    This remake has plenty of potential. Hope some TV producer will pick it up from where this unaired pilot episode kicks off. It is really such a shame that it was not rolled out by the studio producers because I understand that Stargate (another TV series) which has a similar storyline and set was aired at about the same time then. Stargate , in my opinion, is more a fantasy of encounter with “alien like” human races which is no match for this revised Time Tunnel storyline which more real and centred on earthings which we can very much relate to :-).I take this remake any time of the day over Stargate.

    So Studio Producers out there …. sit up and listen : this is a gem of a story to be mined and be re-released as a hit TV serial. Trust me … I know … I am from a past time 🙂

    I liked how some of the stuff at the beginning, where it appears to be the “correct reality” is so backwards. Watch the show a no you’ll see what I mean.
