One of the very first scenes of 11.22.63 features a character explaining just what he has been doing with the awesome power of time travel: He’s been buying really good, really cheap meat from 1960 and bringing it back to the present to make hamburgers. No other character ever really manages to top that reason.
It’s called Time. Honestly, when it comes to time travel, simplicity in the name is probably best.
Asia is becoming an increasingly important market for science fiction and fantasy movies, but we’re still waiting for countries like China to produce their own worthy competitors to The Avengers and Star Wars. A new movie now in production could help to change that.
We’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of Twelve Monkeys, still one of the best time-travel movies. But we’re only just beginning to get to the bottom of what’s really going on in this film. There’s one wild, tantalizing theory that could explain Cole’s time-travel and the plague—watch us try to make sense of it!
Last Friday’s Doctor Who Christmas special was a fascinating look at the contradictions of River Song. But it also gave her some much-needed closure, and her pairing with Peter Capaldi finally made the Doctor’s relationship with River feel like it had some weight.
River Song is arguably the most divisive character to come to Doctor Who in the past five years. She’s a swashbuckling archeologist who outwits almost everybody, and an unabashedly sexy older woman. She’s also so dependent on the Doctor as to be kind of a satellite.
Lisa Goldstein has an incredible track record as a fantasy writer, including the award-winning The Red Magician and the beautiful collection Travelers in Magic. Now she’s written a science fiction book about time travel, Weighing Shadows—and it’s just as mythic and strange in its own way.
“You’re operating independently of yourself in an alternate time line”—now, is there any way that won’t end badly? With this trailer—fast-paced and stuffed with sinister, urban-noir vibes—we’re super excited for Synchronicity, the latest science fiction thriller from Jacob Gentry who you might remember from 2007’s The…
I had some mixed feelings about tonight’s episode of Doctor Who. The plot of the episode (and the season) felt severely half-baked, to say the least, and great moments intermingled freely with a certain amount of WTF. But that ending? Was the greatest. That ending retroactively made the whole thing great.
Warning: If you haven’t seen tonight’s new episode of Doctor Who, it’s pretty heartbreaking. And kind of grueling. Remember “Midnight,” the scary-weird David Tennant bottle episode? This is sort of Peter Capaldi’s version of that. Goosebumps!
Perhaps you’ve noticed all the fuss this week over Albert Einstein and his famous general theory of relativity, which turned 100 years old. Who better to give you a glimpse into what the theory is all about than a Time Lord — the Tenth Doctor himself?
Clara’s time on Doctor Who is coming to an end—no spoilers here—and it’s bumming us out. But she’s not the first companion to leave the Doctor’s side in a totally bummer fashion. Here are the 10 most depressing companion departures, until now.
In Therefore I Am, the McCoubrey brothers create a compelling time travel mystery in just six minutes. It leaves you with questions, BUT in a good way.

Tomorrow’s the day Marty McFly arrives from 1985, and we’re all gearing up to celebrate the anniversary of the best time travel movie ever made. But how much do you know about this time-travel classic? Here are 11 strange facts about the making of Back to the Future.
The final episode of Continuum doesn’t air on Syfy until tonight—so if you haven’t seen it yet, please skip the rest of this recap and just know that there actually is a decent ending in store for you. Everybody else, read on.
Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and…
Tonight’s episode of Doctor Who sees the Doctor in an impossible situation, where his fate appears already sealed. In other words, it’s another day at the office. But this time around, the Doctor is only able to find a way out when he’s given the proper motivation: an even worse looming disaster.
Continuum is in its final few episodes, but the show still has the power to startle us. Just check out this scene from last Friday’s episode, “Zero Hour,” in which Alec discovers the greatest tragedy of his own future self.
Season eight of Doctor Who had a pretty strong character arc for Clara, the ageless Doctor’s traveling companion. She started out distressed by the Doctor’s callousness, but then she learned to be more like him. And now it seems maybe she learned too well.
