Trivia

Although the show only lasted one season and was not ranked high in the Nielsen ratings, it was immortalized when Isaac Asimov referred to it in an essay he wrote in February 1967 titled, "Impossible, That's All" (about how it was impossible for anything to go faster than light). The essay was later included as a chapter of Asimov's book, "Science, Numbers and I". See more »

It had all the elements that a guy growing up in the 1960's could want.
22 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This CBS sitcom ran only one season from September 11, 1966 until August 27, 1967 and starred Jack Mullaney and Frank Aletter as two sixties astronauts who break the time barrier and end up in prehistoric times. 'It's About Time' had all the elements that a kid growing up in the 1960's could possibly want. At least all that this shy, egg headed ape who had an unusual sense of the ironic and a penchant for the ridiculous could want. It had space and time travel, the theory of relativity, dinosaurs, cavemen and strangely compelling images of robustly proportioned cave women being dragged by their hair into darkened caves. Whatever for, I couldn't possible tell. But it did seem like an very stimulating pastime.

I think you will all agree, they just aren't making T.V. like this anymore.
