Of course you could have mentioned "The Streets of San Francisco" among the tv shows. It's not as obvious as it sounds. Or the movie "San Francisco" with Gable and Tracy, which is also not too obvious because it's older than most people's parents.

To transport them to the future so they could communicate with the alien probe that was angrily making it rain really hard because they found out we killed all the whales since the whales were really communicating with a far off civilization on another planet that stopped receiving their signal so the probe had to come check it out... duh...
