Voyagers.... Time Again?
For those of you new to our Blog, we have approximately 2,700 archived blog posts. Thus we've added a 'stats' counter to see what bloggers are viewing, and what posts we should be updating when possible.
This past week I've noticed that our archived blog post on the 'Voyagers' TV Show from 1982-83 is being viewed by severaI bloggers, and keeps showing up in our Top 20 Archived Blog Posts.
I have to admit that I am fascinated by Time Travel TV Series. Those series included 'Time Tunnel' in the 1960's, 'Quantum Leap' in the 1990's, and most recently 'Journeyman' and now 'Life On Mars' in the 2000's.
One time travel series that I blogged about in the past was the TV Series 'Voyagers!', which was broadcast in the 1982-1983 season on NBC. When I blogged about it, I mentioned that it was on a DVD set, (see below)..
Starting on October 3, 1982 the series had Phineas Bogg (played by Jon-Erik Hexum) as one of a society of time travelers called 'Voyagers'.
Phineas along with the help of a young boy named Jeffrey Jones, (who was played by Meeno Peluce), used a hand-held device called an 'Omni' (that looked much like an old time large pocket watch) to travel thru time and ensured that history unfolded as we knew it at the time in 1982.
In the first episode Jeffrey was there to ensure that baby Moses' basket traveled down the Nile where it was met by Pharaoh's daughter. With Jeffrey it wasn't going to turn out that way...
For you new bloggers, I want to point out that there were several running gags in the episodes.
The biggest one was Phineas' lack of knowledge on important historical dates, so which the kid Jeffrey helped him set time right.
Phineas also had a fear of dogs, (i.e. Indiana Jones and snakes).
With his good looks, Phineas was of course a great womanizer and somehow fell for a beautiful woman almost every episode!
I currently have not found out why this archived blog post is being viewed so many times this past week. Quite often when this is the case, the bloggers viewing the archived blog post are looking for verification of rumours that a show is being developed again for another run or in a different format. Time will tell why the archived blog post is so active, (pun intended!).
