AbstractHistoryArchive Description

While playing a computer game, Patrick is invited to take part in a million-dollar game show--which seemingly airs on a channel that doesn't exist. But Patrick perseveres, and finds himself transported through his television and across the time barrier. From there, he passes back and forth across the barriers between dimensions, tracing various lost objects. Series two follows the same basic premise, but with the addition of a friend of Patrick's becoming accidentally trapped on the far side of the barrier.
