Based on H.G Wells' classic story The Time Machine, this time-traveling adventure that originally aired on Nickelodeon is packed with non-stop action. The speculations as to what the future will be like around New York in 11,902 should spark imaginative discussions, and an opportunity to compare and contrast the world of today, the world of the past, and the world of the distant future.

The story does get a little strange -- both tribes Tom encounters in the future have rather eccentric belief systems and cultural trends -- and some of the storylines don't really go anywhere. But overall, TIME KID is enjoyable sci-fi entertainment.
