A strong 2nd episode. It touches upon the mystery of Dan & Olivia and begins to sort through some need to know rules of time travel - like having the correct currency in your pocket when you pay for a 1994 cab with 2006 bills. A nice touching story that moves at a nice pace and keeps you involved and wanting more.

7!

Yeah and also having an old phone for use in the past. He just disappeared from the airplane bathroom, man try explaining THAT one to airport security. 8. And one of these first two had him go back in time while he was still driving which was interesting with his driverless car crashing into a pole. I also liked how he is starting to figure out what he needs to do in his time travels and how he has to focus on who is nearby when he goes back and how he has to help them, often more than once through different times in their lives and finally realizes why they need to be saved, whether it be from someone else dangerous or so they can live on and eventually help others and/or do something important and save and touch other lives, which he seems to usually find out in an Internet search.

.....the frenetic pace continues and now kind of settles into what it is probably going to become....a kind of Quantum Leap (another show we haven't discussed here, I wonder why???), with no sidekicks...not that that is a bad thing, it is fine. It still requires full attention as it is very detailed and goes back and forth through time and space. I do like this and wonder why it just never caught on, I guess?
One of the side stories is the lead character Dan and his wife are trying to become parents. At the end of this episode, Dan's boss asks him if he needs to step in for him since he "isn't getting the job done" (and the fact that he has a very hot tamale wife!!) and Dan tells him no, but then the boss says, "Six kids Dan, six for six...."
I thought that was funny and it does have humor intertwined throughout, nicely done.

Yeppers - well written and as posted - a thinking persons show. Unlike QL, we aren't stuck in that time period. Dan is constantly coming and going. He has to do his own leg work. He has to have a family life, work life, and whatever karma throws at him this time.

Man I can so relate :D

Yes............I was very discouraged when this show bit the dust.

I think a combination of factors helped to bring this one down. Including like DrM said in another thread...........the writers strike may have played a big part in it.


Still encouraging, that they have been eerily silent concerning a DVD release.
I know there has been some talk of trying to bring this show back. This is one of a golden few that I would like to see make a return.

Who knows, maybe NBC will give it a whirl next year now that all the strike stuff is gone, and they are in desperate need for popular programming.
I don't quite know how strong the ratings were for this one, but I believe it did pretty well.

You are going to enjoy the remainder of these episodes Woodrow.

Yeah and it doesn't hurt that there is a ton of very nice eye candy to boot!
I remember when this was on and I really wanted to watch it, but never did get to it.
It would be cool if they resurrected it, a lot of shows bit the dust because of that writer's strike, another one I liked to watch was
Women's Murder Club, which was high in ratings ,but the strike killed it. That one had the steaming hot Angie Harmon in those damn tight jeans...anyway....I am enjoying Journeyman....

Is that the only reason you watch these shows Woodrow? LOL.
I mean, something nice to look at is a plus I guess.

But I gotta go with NYR94 on this one. If I wanted to see the real deal, I might just check out some XXX action.

Women are a definite plus, but when I watch a show and I'm a fan, it ain't for the eye candy.

Decent episode progressing towards informing the audience a little more about the time travel deal. I love that Dan was chased by his brother back in time regarding the counterfeit bill. Plus, I'm pretty sure that little storyline gets carried over. Extremely difficult to get your loved ones to believe your traveling through time and you haven't just lost your mind.

7!

We get to see a young Jessica Chastain here as the grown up Tanna Bloom and you can even see here why she later received so many accolades and Oscar nominations for her acting, which is a real treat. Speaking of eye candy :) .

8. Touching (dysfunctional) family story here, as Dan has to help one in the past while trying to keep his own together and going strong in the future. I also love the ironic twists in these episodes where we find out, as Olivia even says, it's not always obvious what needs to be done by Dan, like Dan rescuing Neal Gaines in the pilot, only to have to save his wife from him later or in this one, with Dan getting Tanna to help her (absentee) father get a bone marrow transplant, only to later find she wasn't a match, but that another patient Dan meets, Billy, was and goes on to help others, much likes Gaines' son in the pilot. I'm loving those little twists and turns this show and its writers keep throwing at us.
