   Time after Time
by Nicholas Meyer, Karl Alexander and Steve Hayes (Meyer, director)
First release: 31 Aug 1979

Apart from the hero in The Time Machine movie, this is the earliest that I’ve seen of the H.G.‑Wells-as-time-traveler subgenre. Our hero chases Jack the Ripper into the 20th century.

 Ninety years ago I was a freak; today I am an amateur. 

—Jack the Ripper in the twentieth century

   Time after Time
adapted by Kevin Williamson
First episode: 5 Mar 2017

H.G. Wells chasing Jack the Ripper through time did’t manage to translate from the 1979 silver screen to the 2017 small screen, although I enjoyed the Paris episode before the show was prematurely canceled.

The model of time travel was particularly troublesome in that I never did understand why H.G’s first trip took him to the museum.

 Its inevitable: Science and technology will advance beyond all imagination, forcing society to perfect itself. Imagine who you could be if you didnt live in fear. Or more importantly, imagine the stories you could write if your life was full of adventure.
