One thought on “BTTF Minute: No Roads Edition #1

  1. Yay no roads! This sounds like it’s going to be so fun! I’m glad you got as excited as I did about a prospective Wes Anderson Back to the Future, because honestly. It would be awesome. But more importantly, you guys are writing a screenplay??

    You could call the “name three” segment the McFly Triple. Or the McFlurry. Or the McTriple (with fries).

    On the comic:
    -The story starts before Picture This came out, but really, who is Marty without Huey Lewis.

    -Doc likely got the tubes through mail-order because, as the town recluse, he was uncomfortable leaving his garage. Maybe he did the same with Burger King meals and just sent Einstein to the drive-thru window to pick them up. The man subsists on a steady diet of Whoppers because he can’t bring himself to go any further from the lab.

    -I don’t know how I like Doc acting so Willy Wonka. Sure he had the Rube Goldberg setup in the beginning of the first movie, but he seems more science-minded than puzzle-minded. A little less sphinx-like and a little more absent-minded. He also lacks the pompous sense of entitlement that one would have to have to say to a stranger, “You have passed my tests and earned the right to work for me.” It feels out of character.
