Time travel has been banned from all Chinese media. AHN reports that the General Bureau of Radio, Television and Film feels that time travel fiction is "disrespectful to history" after the genre became a very popular story telling device.
Well, la de freakin da. What about movies set in the future? Or in the past? Does Firefly count with all the Chinese and whatnot?
You know, I can see the point. The McFly family was happy as crap before Marty went back and changed history to give them all confidence. I mean, the way they picked on the 1950s, the music, the cars, the hair, and the kid with the bouncing shoes all scream disrespect. Not to mention the people that actually invented skateboards and Chuck Berry's career. Even the social aspects, such as not alluding to the Korean War or the looming threat of the commun... oh. I see what you did there, China. Sneaky, sneaky.
Well, we will not know for sure the precise reasons besides this "alleged" disrespect of history, but if you see that China has outlawed all boxing movies and movies about wolverines this poop just got real.
