0821: Time Chasers

MST3k, Experiment #0821

The times they are a changing... Time Chasers.

Nick creates a time machine out of an airplane and a Commodore-64, and shows it to his friends by taking them 50 years into the future. Nick sells the technology to Gen-Corp, a high-tech firm run by J.K. Robertson, whose office is in the mezzanine of a shopping mall. Robertson, however, turns out to be Evil, and uses the time machine to plunder the future. With the lives of himself and his friends at stake, Nick needs to use his time machine to travel a week back in time and convince himself not to give the demo to Robertson.


This episode has one of my favourite Gypsy lines, referencing "Dr. Jane Seymour Medicine Quinn" ... The little segments with Mike and Pearl having a couple little chats are quite nice and give a good dimension to the characters and the way they interact.

This episode in its entirety is fantastic and fun!! It's a great flow from the previous episode, which was equally great. Another of my favourites, Time Chasers is a drab little movie about time travel. It's fun and quirky yet still bad enough to riff.

I've always loved the "Eddie" bits on this episode, especially when he thwacks Crow off his chair. I am quite certain I've spit up my beverage more than once from watching that.

Yeah, you should grab this episode and watch it right now!! I like it very much!!!


Favourite line: "Why doesn't the movie just cover him in cat vomit?"
