In the spirit of Blunderbus's "Space Above and Beyond" thread.....

This series only lasted one season on Ch. 2 and was VERY entertaining. Made no sense at all...and i'll explain why.

The pilot featured a terrorist attack where a plane was crashed into the White House killing The President and Vice President.........and this was pre 9/11! Luckily, a secret branch of the government has in their possession technology from the alien landing at Roswell and they were able to use it to create a time machine that can send someone back in time... seven days.

Enter Frank Parker, an ex-CIA operative who has been confined to a mental hospital but who has been chosen as their "chrononaut" or time traveller, as he has a high tolerance for pain and a good memory despite being a little wild.

Whilst it was entertaining the show made no sense because every week, every disaster....the team did the jump as if they'd done it before BUT if went back each time and diverted the disaster then they'd never of had to go back in time before so each time would be the first time............if you see what i mean.

Either way, fun show...crap science. Anyone else watch/remember it?

The only thing I seem to recall of interest about it was that it starred Anthony LaPaglia's brother, didn't it? Didn't think much of it myself.

If anybody is interested there was actually three seasons made and the last time I checked Bravo were showing them.

Twas trite.  The lead guy was as dull as dish water.
