We’re coming into the home stretch with our recaps of the animated Star Trek series, with just four episodes left to go. So it should only follow that we’re finally getting around to the episodes we didn’t have much motivation…
In 2001, just a few months prior to the tragedy of 9/11, two series aired their final episodes: Star Trek: Voyager and Xena: Warrior Princess. Although ratings for Voyager had dropped considerably during its run, the series remained UPN’s…
Last time, I looked at the best time travel episodes from the first three Star Trek television series: TOS, TAS, and The Next Generation. In this article, I'll look at what are, in my view, the best time travel episodes from the next three series, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise.
Within the six Star Trek TV series, there are dozens of episodes that involve time travel, and I'll be looking at the ones that did it best.
This week on The Flash: so many secret identities, so little time. The Flash faces off with a villain who can be anyone, and Cisco discovers the true Harrison Wells. Plus, yet another Arrow crossover.
THE FLASH: Timey-Whimey Stuff
SLEEPY HOLLOW: Back to the Future
SLEEPY HOLLOW: You Can Ring My Bell, Ring My Bell
SLEEPY HOLLOW: It’s Bloody Magic, I Tell Ya!
“In the movie’s defense, it tries to dial down the pedo vibe, but it’s a bit futile when the source material is this inherently creepy.”
“Director Doug Liman channels Harold Ramis, albeit taking things in a very different direction (less Andie MacDowell, more Alien MindControl).”
“Sci-fi fans looking for boilerplate action might be bored by the long stretches of exposition and introspection, but that’s precisely what makes the movie memorable.”
Outlander takes romance slooooooooow
“We’re really only seeing a woman being forced to strip naked in the woods because the writer wanted to see a woman forced to strip naked in the woods.”
“Without the hook of the internet-famous ad, it’s doubtful that many people would have heard or cared about this sporadically funny and rather unassuming film.”
“They join the battle alongside the French, all the while causing, presumably, numerous time paradoxes by blatantly messing with history. Or not. Timeline doesn’t really concern itself with such trivia.”
“In some ways, it’s like the Goodfellas of time travel films—a compelling drama and character study of people we would never want to cross paths with in real life. ”
“It’s clear the filmmakers saw Donnie Darko, and literally no other movie ever made.”
We mark the release of Upstream Color by looking at writer-director Shane Carruth's debut Primer, the dense and confusing story of two scientists who accidentally create a time machine in their garage. Dr. O'Boogie takes a deeper look at the twisted tale of multiple timelines that sent scores of people to the internet desperately searching for an explanation of the plot.
It's the belated final episode of Time Travel Month! Phil Buni looks at Time Changer, a really poorly made Christian sci-fi film where a professor from 1890 gets in Captain Stubing's time machine and travels to 2002. There, he's horrified to discover that America is no longer the god-fearing country it never was. It's hilariously awful!
