There have been many time travel movies and TV shows I’ve enjoyed. “Doctor Who” “The Time Tunnel” “Voyagers!” “Back To The Future” “The Time Machine” “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” “Seven Days” “Life On Mars” “Time After Time” “Time Bandits” But my favorite time travelers are without a doubt MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN. I loved the “Rocky & Bullwinkle” show as a kid and the “Mr. Peabody’s Improbable History” episodes were a particular favorite of mine. Highly entertaining and educational, each episode would see Mr. Peabody and Sherman going back to some pivotal moment in history via The Wayback Machine, a time travel machine invented by the hyper-intelligent Mr. Peabody. The Wayback would transport Mr. Peabody and Sherman to Washington’s crossing the Delaware or Benjamin Franklin flying a kite attempting to discover electricity or Alexander Graham Bell about to make his first phone call. Something would always go wrong and it was up to Mr. Peabody with the capable assistance of Sherman to make sure that history played out the way it was supposed to. Every episode would always end with Mr. Peabody making some kind horrible pun that always was rewarded with a groan and face palm from Sherman. Continue reading

All this and more on the latest Transmissions From Atlantis!
The story goes that Warner Brothers executives, delighted with the open weekend box office numbers of “300” immediately wanted a sequel. Apparently they hadn’t taken the time to watch their own movie. It’s taken them eight years to figure out how to do a sequel to that movie and to give the filmmakers credit, they haven’t simply reshuffled elements around from the first movie. There’s an honest effort here to give us new characters in a new situation but 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE still didn’t give me that same feeling I had when I first saw “300”. I fell so much in love with that movie I wanted to marry it and take it home to meet my mother. Continue reading
The R-rated comedy has been making a comeback in recent years and some of them have been quite notable such as “Tropic Thunder” “The Hangover” “Next Day Air” “The Wedding Crashers” “Superbad” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” “Pineapple Express” and “Horrible Bosses” All of which I’ve seen and all of which I recommend to you before you waste your time on 30 MINUTES OR LESS.
