Movies and tv shows about time repeating
written by: admin

Date Written: 2/19/12 Last Updated: 9/24/18

The central theme is that a portion of time repeats for one or more people, but there is often no time travel involved.  Only a person's consciousness perceives the repetition and so learns from the experience.  For the person who is repeating time there is usually no perceivable way to stop the time loop.
