tv show name help

during the late 80's maybe early 90's i watched a show (i think maybe on channel 3, on a Saturday around the 1pm time frame)

it was an American show, all that i can remember about it is, maybe based in an alternative reality / parallel universe, it had people that was from our world there. women and men roles were reversed (i.e. the woman was the main breadwinner) and maybe it involved rock music being played backwards (which had a hidden message)

i know the above is vague, but that's all i can remember


any ideas?

I vaguely remember a show that sounds similar to what you say. IIRC an American family somehow travel to a parallel universe where women are the ruling class and men are treated as slaves. There were only a few episodes made. Can't remember the title though, sorry.

You sure it wasn't from Season 1 of Sliders in 1995?

There was an episode called "The Weaker Sex" which had the gender reversal you speak about.

Found the one I was on about. Otherworld

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otherworld_(TV_series)

EDIT: Episode 4 sounds like the Rock and Roll one you mentioned.
