Significant here for what it's missing. This is a time-travel story without a time machine, just a tunnel that ends with a portal into the past, and the transition through the portal just a cinematic quick cut. In the episode "The Truth," the James Franco character in the 2016 present asks his high school class to do a thought experiment involving time-travel to the past, and the class nerd presses Franco on the mechanism, a question the Franco character dismisses as irrelevant, which both calls attention to the lack — at least so far — or mechanism in the series, and immunizes, so to speak, the show from attacks for the omission.
