Back to the Future

Episode Studies

This is PopApostle's study of the Back to the Future movies, comic books, and video games. Here, I am presenting my studies relating to each, such as commentary on the science and equipment used by the characters, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings. At this time, I am not planning to do studies of the Back to the Future animated episodes, as that series was a little too silly for my taste.

 

I am continuing to use the term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.
