Back to the Future Part II
Show Notes

Our Back to the Future series continues this week with a discussion of the 1989 sequel! We talk about the franchise's first actual trip into the future, and highlight the strengths and weaknesses of picking up the story immediately where the original film left off. Elsewhere, we praise the performance of Thomas F. Wilson and each of his iterations on iconic bully Biff Tannen. We celebrate the film's wacky, cartoonish vision of 2015, complete with flying cars, hoverboards and Nike MAG sneakers. We also talk extensively about the dystopian alternative 1985 and its uncanny resemblance to ... today. And finally, we break down the climactic recreation of the first film's events, and question whether the decision to end on a cliffhanger was successfully executed. All of this and so much more on The Breaking Canon Podcast!
