Time Traveler humor

"We don't serve time-travelers here." A time-traveler walks into a bar.

"I already read this tomorrow."

"Man, I'm hungry. I haven't eaten since later this afternoon."

Time travels when you chuck a watch

"Please help me, Doctor, I keep seeing into the future!"
"Ah. And when did this start?"
"Next Tuesday afternoon."

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

What is another name for a time cop.

Find the Time Traveling hipster!

Of course proven false by Everything the man is wearing and the camera he's holding were all available in 1941. So basically, he's a hipster from his own generation among this particular crowd.

The Voyagers! – Dallas connection…

What does this show…

Have to do with this show?

Jerrold Immel composed the fantastic theme music to both of them! I never would have made the connection if I hadn't actually stopped to read the end credits of Dallas. I've only been watching it all summer. What was I thinking?

But I have to say that all that loud, triumphant brass sounded vaguely familiar. By now the Dallas theme music is iconic, it was the first of the bunch. It makes you want to get out to Texas and strike a gusher!

Voyagers! is not as iconic, but it soars just the same. It makes you want to travel through the cosmos, preferably with Phineas Bogg at your side. Immel also composed the music to the Dallas clone, Falcon Crest…and that's even more loud and extravagant than the other 2 put together!

But what does the Voyagers! credits have that the others can't beat?

The smooth and luscious bass voice-over of Jon-Erik Hexum!

Listen to all three theme songs and note the similarities –
