STILL no love for Goldmember? Awwwwww
And since I never saw Hot Tub Time Machine could someone clear something up for me:
That sound Craig Robinson makes when he finds out MJ is still black, was that a happy sound?

I WIN!

Didn't see Hot Tub Time Machine coming though. But you still have a time machine that's not only stationary but also needs you to change the water.

Since I'm not big on either drinking or partying, I'm still going to go with the TARDIS.

EDIT: esp. since you could have a hot tub in the TARDIS.

Oh god...Yahtzee's going to charge that set with an army of imps and the LRR guys to get that hat back AND for stealing Feed Dump's schtick!

No mention of the Wayback Machine though? I am disappoi...well, maybe not. The entire discussion nearly descended into a clusterfuck with the suggestions coming in left and right.

Still...I bet you Jules Verne is going to be pissed that HIS time machine got shafted.

I was going to say that with the Terminator films but yet again that time travel consist of being emerge out of a electric sphere and you're naked.

A few points to be made to defend my favourite time machine;

The TARDIS is made with science like the DeLorean, it's just made with science from alien species. It is bigger on the inside, as explained by the 4th Doctor;

The TARDIS isn't inaccurate. It's just the Doctor doesn't like it when it's boring and predictable. River Song has shown that the TARDIS can be flown perfectly.

You know... until she blew it up. But that wasn't technically her fault.
Also, in regards to the unreliable point, a quote from the episode 'The Doctor's Wife';

The Doctor: You know, since we're talking with mouths-not really an opportunity that comes along very often-I just want to say, you know you have never been very reliable.
Idris/TARDIS: And you have?
The Doctor: You didn't always take me where I wanted to go.
Idris/TARDIS: No, but I always took you where you needed to go.

Also, you can drink and drive the TARDIS, it's just you end up with this;

But you always come out wet in a Hot tub Time machine :(

Boo, heathens. If I want to travel in time, I want an Olympic swimming pool, a wardrobe that includes a cricket outfit and a leek, a chameleon circuit that only works if your filming budget doesn't stretch beyond London and recently spend an awful lot of time in (the awesome Wales), that resists Dalek fire, has gooey stuff in the middle that lets you rewrite the whole of causality, is a fit crazy lady, is stolen, can fly, spins whilst flying, lets you just hang out in space for no-reason because you can open the door and everythings fine. That translates foreign languages into English and English into Welsh/Gaelic. That has crazy levers to impress the friends, but can actually basically work by just banging random stuff, can land in itself, become a scary deathtrap for a chase sequence. A time machine that's technically infinitey big on the inside and can also travel finitely small around an infinite amount of space and time

... and has David Tennant in it

And you guys settled for a hot tub?

Most of the good points about the TARDIS were already made by TimeLord, but he forgot one. The TARDIS did do the whole time-machine within a time-machine thing on at least one occasion.

Also, the TARDIS makes the most wonderful sound ever. You can't argue that.

I'd say the best time machine is the one with the built in Paradox Nullifier from Martian Successor Nadesico. Of course, they have some interesting theories about how the individuals are capable of moving from point A to point B in less than zero time, but the nullifier has a nice little tenancy to ensure that nothing can actually be changed that much. Retroactive storyline is also quite amusing.

Getting informed of an event that already happened in time, but hasn't yet happened in the plot sounds really confusing, but if you ever get a chance to watch it, it makes sense.

Stop calling yourself a cultured American, it makes you look like a snob.

It does make a great place to dry your clothes.

All of this...
Also, yay! my "TARDIS is a woman" point was used!
Also, have you seen the female fans? pretty sure that if you asked them "Wanna go in the actual TARDIS?" They will also beg to come aboard :D

No contest.
This is the best video you guys have done.

Why thank you!

After watching both part 1 & 2 I am convinced part of my brain may or may not be capable of time travel.... Like in part 1 how the debate didn't involve my favorite, The Delorean & ended with it being brought up. Then at the beginning of part 2 I knew none of part 1 mattered because Hot Tub Time Machine would win.

My brain however.... One of the worst time travelers ever.... IF plausible.... Just for solving really trivial stuff....

Just heat up the already existing swimming pool.

Also, the point of " you can't visit alternate timelines in yours" That was false, they visited an alternate timeline during David Tennants first season as The Doctor, which is how they brought back the Cybermen.

and the TARDIS has been around for many a millennium, and thus has seen many more women than a hottub...

And when you make whoopie in the TARDIS, this happens:

Thus, TARDIS wins

Primer's is great but it does brain damage, so I would go with the DeLorean.

Honestly? Now that you've put all the cards on the table I gotta go with the Hot Tub. Not only is it the most luxurious option but temporal paradoxes can all apparently suck it and you can, with no oversight, use your knowledge of the future to get stupid rich. Also you quantum leap into your younger self so even if you're 70 on the inside you're 19 on the outside.

This right here. The TARDIS will always be the ultimate time machine.

surprised no mention of time travel via loop around the sun in a starship - now that's the way to travel!

That isn't a time machine, but rather a meathod of time travel. Small difference, but the line had to be drawn somewhere. Same with the box from Calvin and Hobbs, which was debatably all in his head.

Time Travel by having Super Powers thanks to a yellow sun sounds more appealing....

....

Although not a time machine....

The best time machine is the TARDIS. it will always be the TARDIS, it has always been the TARDIS if that ever changes, the Doctor will go back and fix the change. Mind you I'm named after one of the most loyal companions in the history of the. Series (Adric) so I'm a tad biased.

The Epoch. /argument. That thing is all of the awesome.

No mention of Klingon Bird of Prey? I am disappoint

I'm stickin with Klingon Bird of Prey.

Dear Guy Who (Correctly) Chose Primer,

Thank you.

It's not the fanciest, prettiest, or most fun, but Primer has the best time machine ever.

(Also: sorry that I don't know your name.)

Great debating, and I loved the shout out to Primer. It's a shame the Tardis defender was only around for the 11th Doctor because someone better versed could have easily pointed out that the Tardis is all those other machines rolled into one and then some.

No contest.

I prefer version 2.0 of that model

Still sticking with the Delorean.

oh wow you actually brought up Primer. That was a great movie however it's one time machine i'd never want to use.

Also while the hot tub time machine is good I still think the Tardis is the best. I mean the Tardis has a pool in the library. Hell there's probably a hot tub in there somewhere, it's a big place.
