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>

One episode in particular....
6 December 2002 | by Rust-3See all my reviews

I remember one episode where the older brother and sister became pop-super-stars after performing a cover of the Beatles' "I Wanna Hold Your hand" to All the teenagers in one of the zones where the TV programs and music totally sucked. They became bigger and bigger covering music from our dimension and passing it off as their own. I vaguely remember one scene where, with their new-found riches, they go on a shopping spree and end up finding side-by-side barbie-and-ken-like dolls of themselves. Of course, when their pursuers catch up to them, they have to leave the fame and glory and high-tale it to the next zone, but not after they start a "rock-n-roll revolution". This show was consistently the weirdest thing I remember watching on television. I was about eight and I remember watching this on USA-cable network. The only other episodes I have vague recollections of were the first one with the androids and the last one with the hack- beauty and the beast story (with the mother as "Beauty"!)
