Goofs

When they encounter the rackmounted equipment, they mention how sophisticated it is. Tony then randomly throws a switch, complete with sound effect. It's unlikely that DOCTOR Newman who has been involved in the development of a project like THE TIME TUNNEL, would just throw a switch as though it were nothing. See more »

Deceptive and Flawed Last Episode
15 February 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Doug and Tony are transported to a mysterious laboratory in Cliffport, Maine, on 10 September 1978, and sooner they discover that the local population has been frozen by aliens that intend to steal the oxygen of the atmosphere. Meanwhile, the connection of the time tunnel complex with Doug and Tony is locked and the oxygen in the complex is also drained jeopardizing the personnel.

"Town of Terror" is a deceptive and flawed last episode of The Time Tunnel that uses the idea of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" with aliens possessing the bodies of humans. The screenplay is flawed and for example, the first alien vanquished by Doug and Tony explodes and vanishes in a different way from the others. The conclusion (or lack of conclusion) with the return to the first episode is awful and the producers show no respect with the viewers and fans of this cult show. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Túnel do Tempo" ("The Time Tunnel")
