This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD dealt with *gasp* time travel. If you’ve been watching this season and this Pod so far, you know that something related to time has happened to this team, so that really isn’t a spoiler. If you haven’t been watching, what the hell, man? GET TO IT. This is io9. We do the work.
In between debates on whether the Doc’s new coat is blue or gold, Radio Times is running a poll on what her first words should be. Having failed to teach the original Northern lass Dodo how to talk proper, The Doctor has picked up the lingo herself. Never mind the fish fingers and custard, will she be going for…
Every year since 1960 the Swedish national public TV broadcaster SVT airs a christmas calendar show that leads up to christmas eve. Every year in December there is a different 24 episode show for kids and every generation seem to get their own favorites. One of mine is still The Mystery of Greveholm in which a family…

This was a fun episode in the most comic booky, campy, kinda way. I laughed at the absurdness of it all and in general found it amusing. Others might nit-pick, but I think this show emulates exactly what a Flash comic feels like, time travel paradoxes and all.
Anyone want to discuss last night’s episode of The Flash? I’m going to have to make this shorter than I normally would a recap, so here are the bullet points of what happened.
You didn’t blow me away, Legends. But you did just enough—I think—to make me tag along on your journey.
Which is sort of ironic, since that’s one of the weakest aspects of the show: the characters’ motivations for getting on board Rip Hunter’s Timeship. Oh, sorry: was that a spoiler? Travel back in the past to avoid…
**WARNING**Contains spoilers for Continuum series finale.
I believe I finally have stumbled across my religion, and it is a strange and beautiful thing.
Hot Toys finally announced the 1/6 scale DeLorean time machine! It was pictured alongside their 1/6 Marty McFly figure press release a few months back, but nothing was mentioned about its production run. Now it's official :D
Time travel looks like fun until you actually take it to its ultimate consequences. Directed by Bo Mirosseni and written by Elisha Yaffe, Time Travel Lover is a fun little short that shows how time travel would destroy our lives if it were real. This is heavy, Doc.
As is sometimes important in Time Travel stories, we need some exposition. How did our villains get here? Why are they here? How did they wind up where they wound up? You could do a decent job of it with, at this point, long-winded exposition. What Bendis does so well is show, rather than tell. Buckle up, dear reader.…
I find it comforting to note that time travelers will not get lost in New Orleans' French Quarter, as the street signs are not only bilingual, but also crosstemporal.
What an odd and melancholy ending though. It's like it assumes that these guys have wrecked things so badly that the movie can conceive of no possible repair or redemption any more. The only chance is to tear it all down completely and build it from the ground up, complete with new lives and new loves.
I did not. I tried to schedule a post and did not notice that the time used was eastern, while I live in central, which is an hour behind. Kinja happily accepted my request and stuck the damn thing a few pages down. Nice.
I even added a few models and figs of my own when I reviewed it!
Now, I'm all for various time travel theories, in fact BttF 2 does a great job explaining multiple timelines, but here's the thing about the new life Marty finds himself in at the end of the first movie: His brother and sister are successful adults, led by the good example of George McFly's now-confident and…
I've yet to watch Continuum and though I like time travel and parallel worlds stories, as I read Charlie Jane's recap and many of the comments, I couldn't help but to think about how I really don't believe in such things.
I know I know, I'm waayyy late to watching this. I should have done so years ago, probably right after I finished watching Part 2. Other things just got in my way of priorities.
Imagine you are part of a secret program that uses time travel to bring people from the past to the (current) present for only 12 hours. Your job is to show them interesting things/places and gauge their reactions.
