Saturday Puzzle-Contest: The Time Tunnel (Contest)
Saturday, April 27th, 2024

UPDATE: The winner is…flchen!


Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I often talk about my nostalgia for old sci-fi TV shows—the ones I grew up with—and I forgot about one until I saw the image I’m using for today’s puzzle contest. Before Scott Bakula’s Quantum Leap, there was another TV show that trapped a pair of scientists, moving from one horrible situation to another. I ADORED The Time Tunnel, starring that yummy James Darren from the silly 60s beach movies. Can you imagine how thrilled I was when he popped up as lounge singer Vic Fontaine in a holodeck program in Star Trek’s Deep Space Nine?

Now, I have to go find the series to binge. Luckily, it was only two seasons long, and I remember it didn’t hold a candle to Star Trek, but I had plenty of daydreams where I was James Darren’s fellow scientist arriving in pivotal moments in time…

Anyway, I had to share that very short video, even if it’s grainy as hell. On to the contest!

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle, then tell me what’s at the end of that tunnel! Have fun!

    Oh my! A blast from the past. I don’t think I have seen this since it’s first run. A long, long time ago. But yes, James Darren was dream worthy. *sigh* (I also loved Vic!) I like Lee Merriweather too. As I remember, (and that can be dicey these days) it was a fun show. The effects left a bit to be desired, even back then, it was fun. Now to answer your question, which appears I am attempting to avoid. As with Time Tunnel, Quantum Leap, or any of these time travel shows, it could lead to anywhere. But, my thought when I finished this puzzle was, “The Light!” I am also a fan of Ghost Whisper and Medium and this reminded me of “walking into the light.” Maybe not enough special effects or something. But there you go.

    Yep I can remember this also. The clip had him going back to the Titanic however no one believed it would sink. I remember when there were definitely some interesting sci-fi shows. Even though not my favorite type shows u would watch them occasionally

    I guess we all grew up watching the old shows, including Time Tunnel and we share our dreamy opinion of James Darren. I love this picture and question what is on the other side through the light. Whatever would be encountered–good or bad– will take less courage to deal with, than taking the steps forward to walk through the ‘doorway’.

    The scientists opened up the portal and they had great hope that they would see new worlds but much to their surprise the portal opened up on the other side of the building!

    James Darren was a cutie (he’s 87 now!). I think there’s another dimension at the end of that tunnel – maybe where we can meet our ancestors at a younger age.

    A young James Darren was yummy. I have to say coming face to face with past lives.

    Never heard of this show, but love time travel so will have to look it up to watch it.

    I don’t recall that show, but that is such an intriguing premise! As for the doorway, I’m assuming it isn’t a train 😉 Maybe it’s the mothership…
