Ep. 28: Do You Always Go Naked?

Episode 28, ‘Do you always go naked?’, on time travel

This week, Dave and Steve go back… to Back to the Future. Well, kind of. They take on the broader concept of time travel in movies and, to am such lesser extent, novels. Follow along in their (thankfully) straightforward episode.

  • Intro Clip: Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home.
  • Dave and Steve don’t talk about Harry Potter.
  • Steve makes the dubious claim that that cyrostasis should be considered a form of time travel. Dave accepts this without question.
  • Dave and Steve experience the passage of time.
  • Dave explains why Looper makes him loopy.
  • Steve talks about that old-time-Lost-magic.
  • Steve takes an unpopular perspective on 12 Monkeys.
  • Dave doesn’t like when you explain things to him.
  • Talking about the plot of Star Trek 4 makes one sound crazy.
  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a “hilarious comedy”.
  • Steve puts his failure to achieve an engineering degree to good use.
  • Any question in which the answer is Hot Tub Time Machine is the wrong question.
  • Believe it or not, Steve is correct when he calls the time travel machine from Seven Days a sphere — “Chronosphere” to be correct — but the writers were incorrect to call it a sphere, because it has flat sides all around.
  • Dave and Steve share a love for Scott Bakula’s earlier television escapades.
  • In retrospect, the plot of The Time Traveller’s Wife sounds kind of creepy when Dave explains it.
  • Did Dave and Steve piss of Dr. Who fans? Who cares? Who who?
  • Regarding the untimely death of Hitler.
  • Is Dave racist against people who are fans of Stargate SG-1?
  • Sliding Doors: Great time travel movie or greatest time travel movie?
  • Dave talks about the worst movie from 1985.
  • Terminator 2 = Sixteen Candles.
  • If you haven’t already shut off the podcast while shouting “bullshit, you idiots”, don’t worry. You’ll have more opportunities later.
  • Billy Shakespeare, famous Hollywood producer…
  • … which leads into Steven saying some of the craziest nonsense he has ever said on the podcast.
  • Pauly Shore’s decline is the greatest tragedy of our age.
  • Planet of the Apes (1968) > Dawn of the Planet of the Apes > Rise of the Planet of the Apes > Escape from the Planet of the Apes > Beneath the Planet of the Apes > “Return to Beneath the Planet of the Pigs” > Planet of the Apes (2001) > Conquest of the Planet of the Apes > Battle for the Planet of the Apes.
  • Who could ever forget Young Bruce Willis.
  • Ah yes, that old time travel classic, A Christmas Carol.
  • The final twenty five minutes of the episode are without shownotes because the editor shouted “bullshit, you idiots” and quit.
