And there's the problem.. i have no faith that anyone can handle it right. I hope they do if they decide to make one and there are good ones (like the now legendary DS9 Tribbles episode) but i've seen too many of them to get excited at all.
Shield is good as it is (well.. it's not there yet but it's improving constantly) so i don't see the "need" for such a gimmick.
Agreed - I would like to see one under the conditions you stated (non-repeatable so as to prevent it from being overused). I would also add if they are going to use time travel, develop the rules for how time travel will work with Earth-19999 and stick to them - don't just make it up as you go.
Maybe they could go to the future and meet the descendants of the Avengers.
They should do anything that will inject some life into this lifeless little show. It's become much like watching cardboard decay.
And Dominic Fortune, Brigand For Hire!
I thought about that when I was writing my post, but I don't think Doctor Who quite fits the standard Time Travel trope. The Doctor mainly traveled back and forth in time rather than starting from point X and going backwards in time for a retcon. I haven't seen the new version but even the older version cut back on the travel within Earth's history after the first Doctor.
There's definitely a greater focus on the mechanics of time travel in the new series ("timey-wimey" plots), but opinions vary on whether that's a good thing or not. Personally, I love it.
Yeah, there's quite some good ones. Steven Moffat is a huge fan of predestination paradoxes, usually handled in a relatively whimsical way. I'm partial to them as well, so I can't complain. My point is just that you shouldn't blame time travel when the culprit is actually just bad writing.
