"Lolz0rz" as the kids say.

Time Travel, the worst way to tie up loose ends.

Christopher Doyle said...

Saber:

I've always intended to use time travel to visit past strips - I was setting that up back as far as Episode 20.

But, strangely, this was never intended to be one of "those" spots in the storyline. The executives/Pat are described in the plot as leaving in the escape pods - hardly a loose end.

That I've decided to go back and complicate matters...well, if you've got a Time Machine you might as well use it...

Maarten said...

Hey Chris, can you make an animated landing for the BH?
I know you didn't want to make another, but you have teh skilz.
I have seen many, many BAAAAAAD tardises departing, and you are the only one I've seen so far making a good tardis-like animation of something dematerializing.

Christopher Doyle said...

maarten:

Sorry, I really don't have time right now to animate anything. :-\

mystrey said...

Let me guess,morphesis is coming back?

Christopher Doyle said...

mystrey: Not at the moment. He might in a future chapter, though.

Thomas said...

Correct me if i'm wrong, but Donut's plan sounds more like it would come out of Back to the Future II, not III. But maybe that's just me being picky.

Christopher Doyle said...

Thomas:

No, dang it, you're right. I had two and three switched in my head. I'll make a correction.

For people who don't know Pat, I direct you here:

Wait, time travel? does that mean we have to go through ALL of the past episodes after the episode you are planning?Until Today's?

Geoffrey said...

Hmm if I know wishing and when you don't get what you wish for like I think I do, when they capture Pat O'Buttah, things will go horribly wrong.

There are granted wishes and not-granted wishes, and I reckon Pat's one of the latter, so Donut had better be prepared.

I've been without a PC since the monitor died Friday morning. Glad to see the Brick House cast is finally getting somewhere.

Two Things

1) I am a mark for BTTF, but I am not seeing any coneections, or omages

2) I personally think Butter-Balls would be funnier,

Anyway great chapter so far!

The Jinja Ninja said...

As far back as Episode 20, eh? Well, that means... the French restaurant... did we ever learn who set off the fireball?

Oh...

!

Great escaper said...

i know who started the fire! i bet whisky after stealling butter travels back in time and starts the fire, chef then sees future whisky but thinks its present (past) whisky causing a paradox... Simple

cant you have a BTTF2 moment where there are 2 versions of a character?? no wait make it weirder and have whisky from distant future arrive too like on series 2 of RD
