Palm Springs Writer Explains The Dinosaurs, How Long Nyles Was In the Time Loop
When it comes to time loops and pop culture, it’s best not to think too hard about the logistics. Considering how many ways Natasha Lyonne dies in Russian Doll, the details can get gruesome pretty quickly. The latest installment in the time loop genre is Hulu’s Palm Springs, starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti. When Sarah (Milioti) meets Nyles (Samberg) at her sister’s wedding and heads out to the desert for a quick reception hook up, she gets drawn into a time loop with Nyles. But one thing the film doesn’t address is exactly how long Nyles existed in the loop before she got stuck with him.
In a recent interview with Decider.com, writer Andy Siara reveals that Nyles wasn’t just trapped in the same Palm Springs wedding day for a few weeks—more like a few decades. When asked about the time that passed, Siara said, “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say exactly, but Nyles has in there for over 40 years. There are versions of the script where—mainly when Sarah comes in—I put titles in of how much time has passed.”
Yikes. Keep in mind, that’s presumably not counting the amount of time that Sarah is trapped with him. When Siara worked with director Max Barbakow to bring it to life, they wanted to make sure the repetition got the point across. “The main thing I hope got across was that a lot of time had passed,” Siara said. “A lifetime of memories has passed, basically.”
Fortunately, Sarah’s ultimate plan for their escape seemed to work considering that the film ends with Nyles and Sarah floating in a pool the day after the never-ending wedding day. As for that scene with the dinosaurs? Again, don’t read too much into the logistics. Siara said, “Dinosaurs don’t exist, but in that moment, they exist. It’s two things that are impossible… Or, I can also just say that I love Jurassic Park and I wanted to put that in there.”
