Retrospection - EP. 34 - Biggles Adventures in Time (1986)

It's chocks away as we take a look at Biggles Adventures in Time from 1986. A very British time traveling adventure film that has become a cult classic. Along the flight we discuss Neil Dickson's appearance as Biggles in the Pet Shop Boy's film, we ponder if any movie can be improved with a helicopter stunt and how Peter Cushing always adds class.

We discovers Paul's 'alleged' dislike of vegetables (except cucumbers), and realize that he's confused toyline Action Force's Baron Ironblood with a real WWI German pilot.

Meanwhile Colin has trouble with the time paradox and wonders why do characters in 80s films never take their outdoor jacket and shoes off when relaxing at home.

Intro music "Do You Want to be a Hero" by Jon Anderson and Outro music "No Turning Back" by The Immortals.

In this episode we leap into Quantum Leap, a scifi, time travel series that ran from 1989 to 1993. The series followed the exploits of Dr. Sam Beckett as he leaps into different people in different times, trying to put right what once had gone wrong. Throughout his missions he's assisted by Al, who appears as a hologram and can only be seen by Sam.
