  • Couple of losers on the run using a time traveling machine blow their cover.

    Good episode though very predictable. They actually give away the whole plot in the first two minutes!!! when the wife of one of the characters say their neighbors might be criminals on the run.

    Prior to this like other episodes the host, Truman Bradley, presents a scientific look at the episode. Since it's called "Time is just a place", he gives us the examples of the earth rotating fast though it appears to stay still in the pictures we see. He also shows us a potential future invention in a domestic robotic. It's funny but in the fifty years after this we still haven't produced that yet but have advanced in other technologies.

    Anyways, the plot as one character gives it away is about a couple on the run. They pass themselves off as investors but they are so ignorant about science in general including how to operate a car that their facade is easily broken.

    Once the jig is up, they come clean about their adventures sort of but not before they take off again. In his audacity the crook played by Wallace Stevens is even proposing a book on his deceitful adventures.

    I guess the theme is that Time is Just A Place. However, it's also about how no matter technology has advanced people will still use technology for their own reckless endeavors.moreless
