Hilarious animation imagines Back to the Future traveling to our real life 2015 instead

Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that.

Continuum and the Biggest Pitfalls That TV Shows About Time Travel Fall Into

Check out the coolest moment from last Friday’s brand new episode of Continuum.

Doctor Who Shows Us The Doctor’s Arch-Enemies In A Whole New Light

Tonight’s Doctor Who season premiere is all about two of the show’s most iconic villains. We (and the Doctor) see them in a new light, and it’s enough to make you wonder if the show’s endless battle against evil is actually something more complicated. And if so, what does that mean for our hero, the Doctor? »9/19/15 10:00pm9/19/15 10:00pm

Obscure But Awesome '70s Time Travel Movie Inexplicably Becomes New TV Procedural

Found footage films are everywhere these days, but few short films use the concept as effectively as Timelike does. That’s because it puts its own spin on a familiar concept: one night, a young physics student receives a message from her future self.

Short film: Having a one-minute time machine is hilariously useful

Here’s the problem with time travel, we always dream too big and think about going back in time to see dinosaurs (they’ll eat you) or gladiators (they’ll kill you) or other important moments in history (they’ll all be racist). Fact: Life sucked back then! You wouldn’t want to go back. It’s way better to go back one… »7/08/15 12:34pm7/08/15 12:34pm
