5 Episodes
Original Run: 4 Eps, 10/4/14 - 11/15/14
Playoffs Run: 1 Ep, 4/11/2015

EPISODE ONE (10/4/14)

SUMMARY:  John Wilkes Booth materializes in the 1950s and is horrified to learn that he's known as Lincoln's assassin - and that Lincoln is highly regarded.  Upon meeting Audrey Hepburn - who was just rejected by Alfred Hitchcock for the lead role in "Psycho" because she wasn't willing to go blonde - sparks fly.  But first, Booth must convince her that he is really a time traveler - and that in reality, Lincoln was the greatest monster the world has ever known, with a fiendish plot to rule the world.  He is seeking Alfred Hitchcock, and Hepburn takes Booth to him.  Hitchcock, who is in a meeting with Jimmy Stewart, has the information Booth seeks - about the Crown of Ra, an object of power owned by Cleopatra - but upon divulging it, he is murdered by Stewart... who, it turns out, is in Lincoln's employ and was also seeking to extract that information.  Suddenly, Lincoln himself appears - half man, half android, and with a deadly laser cannon for an arm.  "If you're looking for something to say, John," sneers Lincoln, "you can tell me how that play ended."

EPISODE TWO (10/11/14)

SUMMARY:  As Lincoln teams up with Rasputin, Audrey Hepburn manages to kill Jimmy Stewart in combat using the skills she learned while helping the Dutch resistance.  Booth and Hepburn travel back in time to meet Cleopatra, hoping to enlist her help and get to her before Lincoln does... but Cleopatra already knows of Lincoln's plans.  She believes that Booth and Hepburn are in league with him, and takes them prisoner.

EPISODE THREE (10/25/14)

SUMMARY:  The immature Octavian is in league with Lincoln and Rasputin, and is far too eager to rule.  When Cleopatra comes to gloat to Lincoln that she's captured his spies, Rasputin lets slip that she's made an error.  She returns to her palace and frees Booth and Hepburn, promising them the Crown of Ra if they'll help fight off Lincoln's forces.  Once those forces are routed, their time machines are returned to them so they can go back in time to when the Crown was sealed in a tomb after being given to Alexander the Great.  However, Lincoln and his crew have gotten there first, and they are too late to stop Lincoln from overpowering the oddly milquetoasty Alexander and donning the Crown of Ra...

EPISODE FOUR (11/15/14)

SUMMARY:  Lincoln tries to control the captive Booth and Hepburn with the Crown of Ra, but it's not working.  The two fight back, but their melee is interrupted by the arrival of Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who created the Crown of Ra will Bill Nye the Science Guy.  However, the crown drove Nye mad with power, and Tyson's attempts to wrest it from him resulted in the crown exploding, scattering the power crystals needed to fix it throughout time.  Booth grabs the time machine but Lincoln has sabotaged it; instead of being in the time period they need to be to find the crystals, they are stranded... in Menlo Park in the 1880s.

Lincoln tries to control Booth's mind using the Crown of Ra. Neil DeGrasse Tyson (KJ Middlebrooks) is here to explain why the Crown doesn't work. Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye the Science Guy (William Hickman) invent the Crown of Ra. Everybody's more than a little nonplussed by the whole situation.

SUMMARY:  Booth and Hepburn try to recruit Teddy Roosevelt to their cause, but they discover too late that Roosevelt is already in Lincoln's employ.

Hepburn and Booth try to enlist the help of Teddy Roosevelt (Chairman Barnes). A dramatic moment. Booth's an actor, after all. Lincoln reveals that Roosevelt's already in his employ. Things are looking bleak for our heroes.
