* FreudWasRight: At least in the miniseries, that time warp looks rather... vaginal.

* HilariousInHindsight: At one point, the mystery writer attempts to explain how time travel works and why it would be impossible to change or stop events, using the JFK assassination as an example. Years later, Creator/StephenKing writes ''11/22/63,'' a novel about a time traveler attempting to do just that.

** Can you ''imagine'' what the FAA/NTSB report on this is going to look like? A plane vanishes from radar in the middle of the night and turns up back at the airport it started from, completely empty (except for luggage and personal effects - some of them ''very'' personal); and the six surviving passengers, who deplaned without being seen by anyone, tell a completely unbelievable story.

** And of course if the Langoliers eat each world, but they don't eat the whole thing at once, where do they start every time that Bangor is further down we way?

*** Basically, there are lots of people who call themselves "Christians." Some are in it for the message of love, forgiveness and charity, others more for the "eternal punishment for everyone who is Bad."

** There is no other term that can possibly describe the presentation of the Langoliers in the mini-series. Even factoring in the novella's explanation (the Langoliers were only a form they were comfortable with: they saw incomprehensible shapes almost like machinery until they thought of the motion of bouncing balls, at which point that's what was there), the visual end result looks utterly ridiculous, and boasts rather low-budget CGI to boot.
