Let's be realistic - It's an Irwin Allen series. The word "classic" does not apply. Old - yes. classic - no.

Irwin Allen has done for Science Fiction what Mel Gibson has done for Scottish and American history and Biblical scholarship. :devil:

Hill Street Blues set the standard for ensemble cast shows.

I wonder if there will be a release on Region 2 - hope so, and also hope that St. Elsewhere finds it way to DVD at some point too.

As for Time Tunnel... I've got a mate who will be over the moon about it, but I couldn't stand it - cheaply made, badly acted load of old tosh!

What on earth makes you say that? There have been plenty of (good) time travel stories in Science Fiction literature, cinema and TV before and since Time Tunnel many of them of a much higher standard and infinitely more influential.

The two aren't connected at all other than they are time travel shows. That's a bit like saying if wasn't for Lost in Space we wouldn't have Star Wars...

At least with Lost In Space we wouldn't've had to put with JarJar Binks.

My point is though that both shows follow the same formula of the traveller/s each week having to sort out problems. Also very similar to Sliders if we're being honest.
