Time travel! A concept as old as insert obvious joke here! Today let's talk about how time travel works (or doesn't) and why its stories can be a little… weird sometimes.

What's your favorite time plot? Also, which doctor/companion is your fave? (Mine's 10 and Martha deserved better)

EXAMPLES USED: Doctor Who (s1e1, An Unearthly Child), Doctor Who (s1e2, The Daleks), Doctor Who (s29e7, 42), The Terminator, Back to the Future, Gravity Falls (s1e9, The Time Traveler's Pig), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (s1e1, Pilot), Justice League (s1e24-26, The Savage Time), Samurai Jack (s1e1, I), Samurai Jack (s5e7, XCVIII), Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Doctor Who (s28e9, Rise of the Cybermen), Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Doctor Who (s31e12, The Pandorica Opens), Assassin's Creed, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Thundercats 2011 (s1e7, Legacy), The Flash (s4e23, We Are The Flash), Justice League (s3e12-13, The Once and Future Thing), Kim Possible: A Sitch In Time, Doctor Who (s30e11, Turn Left), Terminator: Genisys, Doctor Who (s27e8, Father's Day), Doctor Who (s30e2, The Fires of Pompeii), Doctor Who (s29e11-13, Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords), Doctor Who (s27e12-13, Bad Wolf/The Parting Of The Ways), The Flash (s1e23, Fast Enough)

Do you know how many of these examples had Will Friedle in a starring role? MORE THAN I EXPECTED. Dude is prolific. Did you know he played Ron Stoppable AND ALSO BATMAN?
