It's the last Thursday of the month and this means TV edition. Now, I chose not to watch the latest TV show about time travel (Timeless I believe) and it was saved by cancellation due to the fans writing in.....just like what happened to Star Trek way back when. I am going to rectify that and start watching that show on youtube. Head over to Wandering Through The Shelves to find out what the others have chosen. Here are my 3....
1. TIME TUNNEL-1966-1967
I was so little when this came out but I still remember the actual time tunnel which looks like it would make me dizzy. 2 scientists invent a time machine and enter into it but can't get out. While in other periods of time, they must make sure not to change the course of history. Their first stop is on board the Titanic! Great show that ended way too early and now has a cult following. Love the Music-sooo Irwin Allen isn't it?
2. LAND OF THE LOST- 1974-1976
This was a Saturday morning show that I enjoyed despite the really cheesy effects. A father and his 2 kids end up going over a waterfall and going back in time to the land of dinosaurs. One T- Rex would love to make them his snack bit they always evade the peanut-sized brain Rex. They make their home in a cave and the young girl even befriends a young brontosaurus whom she rides like a pony. Eventually they meet up with an intelligent race that look like the Gorn's cousin. This cheesy show ended up having a following which produced a bad movie starring Will Ferrell and a TV series remake of this TV show. I think this kind of fits the theme...doesn't it?
3. QUANTUM LEAP-1989-1993
Love this show and loved Scott Bakula whom I wished I could have met back then to do things not allowed in some states:). He plays a scientist who, through some "quantum leap" inhabits the bodies of people and only his trusty friend with a computer can see him as Sam and Sam is the only one who can see his friend. They have to find out why he replaced the person so he can somehow change the course of history and make it right. Once he accomplishes this he travels immediately into the body of another. It was well written and could be serious and funny especially when Sam ended up as a woman.
Which picks would you choose?
