    I always think of a Nixie tube watch when I think of time.

    This is a product placement post, right?

    It's About Time was pretty bad, but it had great opening credits.

    As for Time Tunnel, it is the only one of the Irwin Allen science fiction shows that I still find watchable; Lost In Space (my favorite as a kid) is slow as molasses, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is just cheesy (though the original movie is still fun). Land of the Giants was so creepy to me as a kid that I haven't yet mustered the courage to watch it as an adult.
