Campion takes on the classic trilogy that many of us grew up watching in this episode ofCampion Conversations. Host Dr Colin Dray and co discuss their love for the trilogy and examine it in light of the burgeoning potential of science in the 1980s, while considering other questions like: Is the plot plausible? Does the time-travel timeline hold up? Which film is the strongest of the three? Which is the weakest? We discuss all this and more! Listen and enjoy.
