In case you’re new to Medium Cool, BGinCHI is here once a week to offer a thread on culture, mainly film & books, with some TV thrown in.
Tonight’s Topic: Time Travel
In this week’s return to Medium Cool, let’s talk time travel.
I’ll watch almost anything with time travel if it’s decent (Looper, Safety Not Guaranteed, Source Code, etc.). A twitter friend recommended a 2019 Norwegian series called “Beforeigners,” which is now on HBO. Just finished the first season last night.
Really fabulous show with an amazing premise: “Flashes of light appear in the sea, and people from the past emerge in the present; the so-called “beforeigners” struggle to integrate into modern society, then a woman with Stone Age tattoos is found murdered on a beach.” Great plot and characters, and fascinating exploration of immigration issues.
What other films/TV or books or comics do you like with time travel?
