This is a special Timey Wimey bank show. Basically, we missed a week for some reason so we’re uploading this instead. We talk about the small section of time travel that occurs in Doctor Strange.
This is the one where a brain surgeon becomes a wizard through the magic of a car crash!
Doctor Stephen Strange, a comic book character with the most improbable name since Doctor Otto Octavius ended up with 8 limbs, is a brilliant brain surgeon. A horrendous car accident (don’t text and drive, kids) takes away the use of his hands. He finds a man who regained use of his legs and sends him to Kamartash to find a guru to help him. The White Witch, er, Sorceress Supreme opens Doctor Strange’s mind to a whole new world, and he doesn’t dare close his eyes.
He begins learning all he can about magic and realizes there’s more danger involved that he thought. He reluctantly becomes a hero when he literally dons a cape and kills a bad guy. Having conveniently mastered time control with a hijacked Infinity Stone, he uses his new-found power to trick an interdimensional being from beyond space and time who has conquered many universes and has his eyes set on ours. Ya know, normal training montage stuff.
Doctor Strange, dubious man of science, is now the most powerful wizard on earth, keeping tabs on aliens, gods, and other stuff. The end.
