I finally got around to watching this pilot. I’ll replace this with a write-up ASAP. The premise is a little different than the commercials though, but very good. The main character bascially suddenly for some unknown reason starts traveling back through time, but he doesn’t know why. It’s NOT to save his dead ex girlfriend, which the commercials lead you to believe. Something bigger is going on. In the first episode he sees his dead ex, but his journeys in the pilot episode actually revolve around a man whose life he saves in his first trip back. Everytime he finds himself going back, it revolves around this man’s life. You can see the set-up for the rest of the season here, journeys to save people or change things in the past. If you want a huge spoiler, make the jump.
Whatever is going on with the main character is part of a bigger plot. The dead ex girlfriend, who supposedly died in a plane crash . . . isn’t dead! She’s a journeyman too! He meets up with her, but she only offers him slight clues as to what is going on and then vanishes herself.
