Finally, we’ve come to the smoking hot British-comedy-about-a-time-travel-bathroom of time travel, “FAQ About Time Travel.”
By popular demand, we’re diving into the 2009 comedy that mixes a bit of a “Shawn of the Dead” vibe with some time travel tropes, some “Back to the Future” gags, and some generally nerdy discussions of why Hollywood puts out a bunch of crap sequels instead of great sci-fi movies, because jeez.
All the knowledge of every sci-fi movie ever can’t save “FAQ” from getting lost in its time travel ideas, however. Still pretty funny, though!
(It’ll make sense when you listen.)
