@mfladd - You should congratulate yourself on having a great memory - it’s a LOT better than mine if you know who Dana Plato, Andrew Prine, Johnnie Ray, Madlyn Rhue, Adam Rich, Susan Richardson, Tommy Sexton, Jenny Sherman, and Brett Somers are!
@RiotDemon - They both got off to a good start, imho. The original lost a lot of points with me for having Dirk Benedict in the cast, but gained a lot for Maren Jensen. I kind of lost interest in the remake, but ya gotta say, they never landed on a disco planet or a cowboy planet, or had a cute kid with a robot dog!
@aetris@sammydog01 Richard Hatch also had a recurring role in the BSG reboot, which I thought was kind of a nice thing to do.
Googled him to make sure I had the right guy and discovered he died last year.
@aetris Two physicists get trapped in the Time Tunnel and randomly jump around in time to important historical events. The crew at the tunnel can see them and they can talk but they can’t get them home. War of 1812, Halley’s Comet, Pearl Harbor, Little Bighorn, the eruption of Krakatoa, and a solar eclipse were episodes.Yes, I own the DVDs.
@sammydog01 - Time Tunnel apparently ran in '66, and I know I was more into some other shows that year (I remember Star Trek’s debut.) I don’t know what its time slot was, but I remember particularly liking Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Rat Patrol, Mission Impossible, and many others. Yes, I watched a lot of tv…
@sammydog01 - That explains it - I was a big Wild, Wild West fan. I don’t really recall seeing The Man From Uncle, but I remember watching The Girl From Uncle around then and my mother NOT being happy with it!
@craigthom YES! I lived in the middle of nowhere when that was on and had my dad tape it and send it to me. Now I own the dvd set. Confession time- Bruce Campbell appeared at a local mall to promote it and I stood in line with 1000 children to get his autograph.
@sammydog01 I tuned in to Hulu to take The Time Tunnel for a spin tonight. What a hoot! I’m loving the simplistic sets, and portrayal of futuristic tech. Most especially the massive overacting which was prevalent in ‘60s television.
Despite my declaration of “simplistic sets” when one considers there was no CGI then, and everything had to be built from scratch, the budget and manpower required for those sets is awe inspiring.
Great fun, and a welcomed break from the television products of our current era. Thank you for turning me onto this series!
@baqui63 - I remember those as well as Clutch Cargo and Lancelot Link (I thought it was pretty funny back in the day.) Fortunately NOT Me and The Chimp, Holmes and Yoyo or The Ugliest Girl in Town. Unfortunately, I also remember My Mother the Car and Galactica 1980.
I remember watching that episode.
I would’ve been 10 y/o at the time, and CHiPs was among my favorite TV shows.
I recognize most of the “celebrities”, especially as most of them were on others of my favorite shows.
Are all of the “stars” in here low grade B actors? Did they all burn to death in a disco inferno on December 31 1979? The 70s was a bit before my time but I was expecting to recognise more than just one or two of the names.
