On July 3rd, 1985 the world was introduced to Back to the Future for the very first time. 25 years later it still remains as one of the greatest movies ever to be released. We here at The Gunaxin Show are huge fans of the movie so we decided we’d give it a nice big silver anniversary tribute with a bunch of articles, a Back to the Future themed Gunaxin Show, as well as an interview with Doctor Emmitt L. Brown himself – Christopher Lloyd. That’s right we pull out all the stops on this one.

The Gunaxin Show is classified as Explicit, so probably NSFW, unless you work here.
