Caveman, the donkey wheel and nuke is from Lost.

And I didn't get Hanso's joke initially.  I thought it was some sort of crack about black people being exhibitionists or promiscuious or something less positive than having large male atributes.

The Irish are lucky.  The Native Americans are wise and in touch with Mother Earth.

What does being part Polish get me?  Not much.

What about The Time Tunnel(1966)? That was a cool way to Time Travel!! Pretty good show, too!

Why were any solid references to Terminator edited out?

EagleManiac, I'd only use the Time Tunnel if my life depended on it. That thing never worked. Looking at the reruns of the show, they had the top scientists in the world running that thing in a gigantic underground complex,and two scientist who were traveling through it and they still couldn't get those guys back home. They couldn't even control where they might end up each week.

They did have the knack of always ending up at historic events, though.

Kara - Glad we understand each other.  On the Dr.Who subject, I tried to watch the season with Christopher Ecclecston, had on my Netflix Instant queuqe but then I saw they didn't have the entire season for instant viewing so I didn't bother.  I may give it a go again when I have time, as you are aware I am currently going through Supernatural, after that I plan on checking out Mad Men but maybe after that I'll check Dr.Who out.  Question for you, should I watch the Ecclecston season or start with the David Tennant one?

6dragon - I have no idea but I'm going to go with option A: what I wrote sucked balls.

Phineas Bogg (played by Jon-Erik Hexum) was one of a society of time travelers called Voyagers who, with the help of a young boy named Jeffrey Jones (played by Meeno Peluce) used a hand-held device called an Omni (which looked much like a large pocket watch) to travel in time and ensured that history unfolded as we know it. For instance, in the first episode Jeffrey ensured that baby Moses' basket traveled down the Nile river where it was met by the Pharaoh's daughter.

Bogg and Jeffrey first met when Bogg's Omni malfunctioned and took him to 1982 (the circuitry of Bogg's Omni was set to allow him only as late as 1970), landing him in the apartment of Jeffrey's aunt and uncle, who were caring for him after his parents' death. Jeffrey accidentally fell out of a window, causing Bogg to jump out to rescue him by activating the Omni. Bogg's Guidebook, which contained a detailed description of how history should unfold, had been grabbed by Jeffrey's dog Ralph so Bogg had to rely on Jeffrey (whose father was a history professor) to help him.

So a Delorean which holds at most 4 average size people is the best way to time travel vs just walking through a portal or rip in time? This way you are not limited to who can come along and you can touch time or the time stream or time space or whatever.  Plus the Delorean would most like be fried when its thin shell is zapped by all the energy in the time stream and depending how anything reacts to anything in the time stream the delorean may be crushed like a coke can in your fist with you in the can.

I would rather be crushed while not being contained in a tin can thank you very much.

How simple is it and cool that you just need a map and possibly a wall to push.

The Delorean would not last and if you LAND IN WATER  OR SAND  or The Titanic you are dead.

You need to plan for contingencies in time travel in case you need to get out of a bad situation.

Homer's toaster and anything built by Stewie Griffin or followed by Donnie Darko is much cooler and safer than a Delorean.

I will say this about the Delorean and Spielberg he needs to join the auto industry. The Delorean concept for Back to The Future was based on ideas for fuel alternatives and using garbage to power things and not gasoline.


TIME BANDITS would strip the Delorean in 2 seconds. Delorean Evil Do not Touch.

Does Michael J Fox shake more or less in the Delorean?
