"Time travel" seems an irresistible theme in "stories of the fantastic." With it brought in, though, the thought of "changing history" lurks, and the potential loops and paradoxes there are obvious to pretty much everyone however smug they may be about bringing them up in response to the best attempts of stories to set their own rules. (There seems one logically unassailable way out in declaring any attempt to act with foreknowledge just leads to the inevitable conclusion, but this has its own troubling if not depressing connotations when it comes to "free will," even if something is said about "the best of all possible worlds.") When all of this combines with Mystery Science Theater, the results in this case are "Time Chasers" ("I'll have a Scotch with Time Chasers."), and the perhaps inevitable consequences are humour.
