In this third episode, Joshua Hall, Matthew Lloyd, and Josho Brouwers jump into a DeLorean to talk about time travel. They all agree that time travel mechanics aren’t very interesting and that how time travel actually works isn’t what time travel stories are about. Instead, they talk about various Star Trek episodes, Doctor Who, Looper, the Back to the Future films, Isaac Asimov’s The End of Eternity, and more.
Needless to say, the topic for this episode is vast and we couldn’t cover everything. For example, we didn’t touch upon time loops of the kind seen in Groundhog Day (1993) or the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Cause and Effect”, and we somehow managed to avoid talking about the Terminator movies altogether. So if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that we’ll have to return to this topic at some point in the future.
