Okay…we all know how many time-travel based movies and TV shows there have been, and we can probably each compose a short list of five that’ve worked and failed, and a long list of twenty that haven’t worked, and failed. I’m talking about time-travel as the thing, here, understand…not Star Trek or Man From Atlantis (although that was a little weird, wasn’t it? What were they going for there?), but Doctor Who and Quantum Leap. You know?
So…my challenge to you…!
Your own brilliant time-travel based TV series. I’m not saying it would have to succeed…although that would be nice, too. But, it’s gotta be brilliant. And, it’s gotta have a little depth to it. And, there may be a prize. Now, I’m not guaranteeing anything, I’ll have to look around, and I’m a starving artist type, so seriously no guarantees. But for this meme, since the subject’s so thankless in the first place, it seems like there oughtta be a prize, and therefore I’ll work to dig one up, and update you as soon as I possibly can on said prize’s readiness…okay, screw it, there will be a prize. In fact, there’ll be two! Because my own humble time-travel TV show offering will appear mysteriously at some point, either anonymously or under an assumed name, and at the close of the contest the first person to correctly guess which entry was mine will win the second-place prize. Hah! I think it’s a good idea. Unless one of you bastards steals it from me before I get the chance to put it out there, in which case that person (RAB, I bet) will be punished! PUNISHED!
THIEF! I’LL PURSUE YOU TO THE END OF TIME ITSELF…!
More later on prize details, and other stuff. But, the race is officially started! You may begin!
