Trivia

Goofs

Mounted warriors are shown using saddles with stirrups. Saddles did not come into use in Europe until 200 B.C. and stirrups about 650 A.D., 1,000 and 1,850 years respectively after the events depicted here. The stirrup is what made mounted warriors practical; around 1200 B.C., horses would have been limited to drawing war chariots. See more »

Doug and Tony are transported to 1200 BC in the middle of the war between Greeks and Trojans. They are captured by Ulysses' men and their knowledge of history makes Ulysses believe that they are gods from the Olympus. When Doug is captured by the traitor Sardis and brought to Troy, he meets Helen of Troy and proves to Paris that he might be a god. Meanwhile Tony witnesses the construction of the Trojan Horse and joins the team that will break in Troy inside the horse to rescue Helen and Doug.

"Revenge of the Gods" is an engaging episode of this series supported by a great work of edition with the use of footages of "The 300 Spartans" and 1956 "Helen of Troy". The greatest flaws are the language, since Tony and Doug speaks English only, and the use of the Roman names of the gods instead of their Greek names. However, despite these inconsistencies, this entertaining episode is still one of the best of The Time Tunnel. My vote is eight.
