China bans time travel in movies and TV

Don’t expect any Bill and Ted sequels in China anymore. The General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television in China has banned the airing of television or movies containing the theme of time travel. Apparently time travel had become so popular that the Bureau thought it was “disrespectful to history” due to exaggerated acting and historical inaccuracies. I’m pretty sure there’s a genre we’d all like to ban if given the chance, but time travel does seem a bit strange. It must be running rampant in the form of bad soaps and kids are running around quoting them in history class or something.

Additionally, the Bureau decided that they had seen enough remakes of “the four great classical novels of China” and nobody else can adapt it on television or cinema. Again, how prevalent are these remakes that it becomes unlawful to remake it? Are they seeing crazy Yo Gabba Gabba versions of these novels? In case you don’t know, these are the four greatest novels of China:

So if you’re in China, be prepared to become a time travel movie bootlegger out of the back of your car so people can get their fix of over-acted inaccuracies. You’ll be rich in no time.

    Time Travel for Individuals – not Governments:

    To break the restriction of a linear time sequence, the Lost need empirical data – uncorrupted, honest data. However, the Lost have filtered all their data with a scientific-religious presumption: a finite universe with a finite number of dimensions.

    The Lost do not understand, nor do they perceive their conflict with the Infinite Universe and the Infinite number of dimensions…

    “…nothing can be added to it,
    nor anything taken from it…”
