    I just have to say I kind of love The Philadelphia Experiment. It combines the fish-out-of-water elements from Back to the Future with the basic outline of The Final Countdown to tell a pretty silly story that I find pretty compelling and fun. I love Michael Pare and Nancy Allen, and I love than Steven Tobolowsky has a cameo. I also like that it’s basically Back to the Future, but backwards (I – like most of you it seems – hate Back to the Future Part II, at least the futuristic half). I like that this doesn’t overdo the fish-out-of-water aspect, but I felt it coming through effectively. I owe both this and Millennium a re-watch, but being a big time-travel movie nerd, and therefore incapable of making best-of lists, I’d have to say Philadelphia Experiment would be in my top ten time travel films.

    Love the podcast, so glad you’re back!
