Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

Show Summary

Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? began in the fall of 1996, replacing the former PBS Carmen show, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, both produced by WQED Pittsburgh and WGBH Boston. This version had one of Carmen's cronies going back in time to steal something that would affect the course of history. The show featured an opening round in which contestants answered questions about History. In the second round, contestants ranked eight events from most recent to earliest. Then in the final round, one contestant had to answer six multiple choice questions asked by Carmen in 90 seconds by running around the set through the gateways of time. A correct answer allowed the contestant to pass through it. If the contestant answered incorrectly, they must manually open the gate. If the contestant passed through 6 gates in time, he or she won a computer system. The series ended on December 12, 1997 after 2 seasons and aired re-runs until October 2, 1998.

  • Great game show, not so hot of a studio audience

    8.0
    Where in Time was great. Love the gameplay, engine crew, Kevin, The Chief, and the other cool stuff. But I do have one bone to pick, and that is the studio audience. Too bad they weren't as involved as the audience in Where in The World is Carmen Sandiego, that would've kept the show going for more seasons. But overall, the show was fine.
  • It was a good show.

    8.0
    I really liked this show. I thought the premise was interesting and also the entire setting. I don't think it was given enough of a chance to succeed, but when it was on, I watched it. I thought it was very eductaional and also very entertaining. It was funny to see all the villains and to also see the contestants lose or win. I must say that my favorite aspects of the show had to be the beginning where we would find out who the villain would be and what he did. My favorite was Dr. Belljar. Overall, a good show. Thank you.moreless
  • Not as good as the original

    8.0
    I liked Greg better than Kevin, and Rockapella better than the engine crew. And World had better villains. But Lynn Thigpen as the Chief was still cool. I still have the songs from both stuck in my head though. I just don't remember all the villains names anymore. World beats Time any day.
  • Cutting edge, amazing, and stupendous are just some things to discribe this here show!

    Now, if you have read my reviews before, you will know that I am not a child, but I love to watch Childrens TV. I am a teenager, not a new teen, but a middle teen if you will... but this show, I am going to have to... "Borrow" this from the library, and "lose" it. They are the only ones who have a copy of this show on VHS, and i would pay the fee to say it was lost.



    Now, this show was so cool, detective work, mixed with world travel, mixed with Zach and Ivey was so fun to watch on Saturday mornings, * Or in my case now. whenever I feel like it*



    But seriously, if you ever see this one make sure you watch it. It is so good, informative, and fun you can't go wrong with this one!moreless
  • Who knew that learning about history could be this fun?

    I was 17 years old when the show started airing, but it became a "guilty pleasure" for me and I even got my youngest brother into it as well.

    I loved the concept - using skits, CGI animation, music and comedy to teach kids about history and different time periods. The show infused the right amount of energy to educate as well as entertain (I admit it, I had a crush on the host at the time), and even I as a teenager learned a lot from it.

    Though it only lasted two seasons, I learned a lot from the show and I hope somewhere down the road it can be re-shown for a new generationmoreless
