Back to the Future

Postby Bradster » Fri Mar 08, 2002 11:14 pm

I know it's not at all Star Fleet or Terrahawks related, but it was in the 80's...And I loved it. :biggrin: All three movies play here with near-predictable regularity on USA (what an original name for a cable network...) and TNT. I am still determined to own a DeLorean one day!! I already own part of one: the famous DMC logo off the front grille. You can see it sitting atop my monitor in all its glory here:What about you Brits? Was Marty McFly a smash success in the UK too?Cheers!

Oh yes, Back to the Future still gets aired over here too - fairly regularly, particularly at holiday times. I too have often lusted after a DeLorean, particularly one with hover conversion! It's a nice, entertaining trilogy and they keep the time stuff pretty consistent too. I also have fond memories of the Back to the Future II game on my Amiga, I think it came with the pack...

Ah yes! The cartoon! I'd nearly forgotten about that. I tried to catch it whenever I could, but I think it only came on at some god-awful hour like 7:30 in the morning on Saturdays. It's no surprise it didn't last long in that time slot. Ooohh... I didn't know about the DVD set. I'd better set aside some money now because, like all boxed DVD sets, I'm sure it'll be expensive. Here's hoping for lots of behind-the-scenes footage, extra scenes that were cut, and maybe a "continuity" commentary to point out things like the Twin Pines mall becoming Lone Pine! :biggrin:

why did the mall get its name changed, I thought the point of it all was that Marty didn't change the past/future.

At the beginning, it was the Twin Pines mall. As Doc Brown points out, all that land used to be owned by some crazy farmer who had a dream of raising pine trees. When Marty accidentally travels back to 1955 and drives out of the barn, he knocks down one of two pine trees that are standing side-by-side (twins). When he returns to 1985, the mall is Lone Pine.I was a hard-core BTTF fan as a kid. :biggrin:(Edited by Bradster at 11:35 pm on Mar. 21, 2002)

for the bradster, a guy in work owns a delorian and brought it in to work the other day.It is a pile of rubbish yet strangly desirable.I checked through the car to make sure there was not flux capasator, it must be an optional extra.

Ah, but a pile of rubbish with a 2.8 litre engine.
Dream big and bold and daring.
