The Chinese government has banned time travel as a plot device in movies and TV shows.  (And here I've been working on a television treatment for Chinese TV about the 9th Century hermit poet, Han Shan, who steps out of his cave one day and is sucked into a vortex that deposits him in an apartment building in modern Beijing, where he is beset by a host of wacky neighbors and a landlord who never knocks before entering the apartment.  I've even had preliminary discussions with his people, about getting Charlie Sheen to star as Han Shan).  
 
And more to the point, where are the Chinese people going to get their It's About Time reruns?




Theme Song -

It's about time, it's about space,
About two men in the strangest place.
It's about time, it's about flight -
Traveling faster than the speed of light.
This is the tale of the brave crew
As through the barrier of time they flew.
Past a fighting minuteman, past an armored knight,
Past a Roman warrior, to this ancient site.
It's about caves, cavemen too,
About a time when the earth was new.
Wait'll they see what is in sight!
Is it good luck or is it good night?
It's about two astronauts, it's about their fate,
It's about a woman and her prehistoric mate.

It's about time, it's about space,
About two men in the strangest place.
They will be here right on this spot
No matter if they like it or not.
How will they live in this primitive state?
Will help ever come before it is too late?
Will they ever get away? Watch each week and see!
Will they be returning to the 20th Century?
It's about time for our goodbyes
To all these prehistoric gals and guys. IT'S ABOUT TIME!
