Picks and Pans Review: Time After Time

CBS (9-11 p.m. ET)

Jack the Ripper (David Warner) rips off H.G. Wells' Time Machine and pilots it from 1893 London to modern-day San Francisco, with Wells (Malcolm McDowell) in desperate pursuit. The improbable plot is brought off with panache and considerable suspense in director Nicholas Meyer's 1979 flick, co-starring Mary Steenburgen—who married McDowell after they met on this film.
