Storyline

The Sterling family goes on vacation to Egypt and visits one of the pyramids. However, they get lost while wandering around in the labyrithine interior of the pyramid. When they finally make it out of the pyramid, they discover that they're no longer on Earth. Instead, they've somehow been transported to another planet. And the natives (run by an autocratic dictator) aren't very friendly... Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Quotes

[Opening title narration.]
Narrator: Other worlds lie outside our seeing. Beyond the beyond. At the edge... of within. The Great Pyramid: erected by the ancient ones as a barricade. At the portal between two dimensions, two separate realities. This is the story of one family, drawn through a mysterious vortex into the other world -- and of their perilous trek homeward.

It Was Worth A Try
21 April 2001 | by Thor2000See all my reviews

One part Sliders and one part Lost in Space, this show was too hard to understand and too brief on TV. Creativity unleashed, the series was wild and fantastic with a knock-out babe of a daughter, a Ken doll perfect son and an annoying little brother who with their parents found themselves trapped in a quantum reality which our world could have been - separated even more by social, political and religous boundaries. Maybe it could have survived as a Saturday morning show, but like the castaways and the Robinsons, we had to leave them left behind.
