Journeyman Premiere 9/24

  1. Very solid beginning for this show...

    Reminds me of Early Edition (one of my favorite shows from the 90s) mixed with Quantum Leap.

    Thoughts?

    It's definitely more sophisticated than either of those shows (both of which I liked). It seems like they could go anywhere with it, and hopefully they won't make it completely random and unpredictable.

    I love the dynamic of his current wife being his brother's ex, and when he goes back to see his beloved departed, being under the view of the woman he loves and ended up with. Very clever.

    And, just a quibble, I'd like to know how a reporter at a SF paper could afford a house like that.

    My wife and I laughed about that... Also at how the editor knew it was his anniversary... Like any of them actually care... ;D

    Love the show though...
     
  4. I watched the first half, and tivoed the second half, but the show didn't do anything for me, which is disapointing because I had high hopes for it. None of the characters grabbed me, like they did in Quantum Leap. To me, the characters are what makes or breaks a show. I'm going to watch the second half, but I don;t know if I'm dedicating the time each week for it. Just wasn't compelling enough.

    I mentioned on another thread that because of its timeslot, right after Heroes with nothing other than MNF that I would watch otherwise, I'll probably end up watching it. It was OK, but I have a feeling I'm going to want more of the serial storyline (what's up with the dead fiancee showing up as he leaves his dead fiancee's apartment) and they're going to go more episodic.

    My thought is she is also a time-traveler ... and that their relationship as a pair of travelers will come into play in later episodes.

    As for the ending, it gave me goosebumps. ... "I'll always come home."

    Very well done

    They explain that in a future episode when he sends himself a note from the future telling himself to buy stock in Microsoft.

    They said he has had a gambling problem... Maybe he starts betting the games and hits it big...
     
  9. OK, so I watched the second half, and I guess I'll be back for a few more. It's not a fantastic show, just ok, but not all great shows start out great. I like the storyline, just wish some of the characters would be a bit more drawing.
