Socoder -> Film + TV -> Time Travel Recommendations

Does anyone have any recommendations for a time travel movie/show I should watch? I watched both the old and new quantum leap recently and a few days ago ’’biggles adventures in time’’ which would not surprise me if I heard that it inspired quantum leap. I need something else to watch now...

Sliders! Simply the best, IMHO.

Voyagers was another one that was okay for the time.

Terra Nova was really good, but ended abruptly, also had a huge budget.

Lost World was also good. Jennifer O'Dell was an added bonus.

Kids show but for its time Land of the Lost was really good and most of the episodes were written by the writers of the original Star Trek series.

These are more back in time shows and living in the past. First post the shows were like Quantum leap and varied each episode. Voyagers predated Quantum Leap.

Movies:

The Final Countdown. The stuff of legends. It is that good.
Time Bandits. Good for the time.
The Time Machine. The original version is the best, IMHO. But the remakes are good, too.
Langoliers. Made for TV mini series, but very well done.


Could go on for hours listing the movies, but these four are my faves.


I left out the 80s cheese movies.

Oh and "Crime Traveler", that was bad, but in a good way.

Most movies I like of any genre are old B&W movies. So many good old B&W time travel movies.

I watched a bunch of S.Korean shows on Netflix, with varying degrees of timey-wimey. Some ended up just being "romantic drama with shit time-travel intro", but some did end up quite decent.
I no longer have Netflix, though, so can't scan through my history to find all their names, I'm afraid.

Generally Netflix was good at finding shows via a "time travel" search.
Amazon prime's shit at it, though, and keeps recommending Travel-Man.. Which isn't!

There's also Outlander, but that's pretty much just porn, if I'm honest. Especially the wedding-night episode..

Signal and Alice were both shows I enjoyed, according to this thread. https://socoder.net/?Topic=7575

Edge of Tomorrow, Boss Level, Source Code are all like Groundhog Day. Worth watching at least once.

The new Flash movie and some episodes of "The Flash" have time travelling as well.

@spinal This popped into my head.

And the Stargate film is great but I'm not sure it's "time travel" per se but whose to say really. Could be.

Looks good.

... should I re-subscribe to rip-off-flix just for a month, perhaps..?
