Saw the first few episodes while home sick the other day. I really enjoy it. The kid messengers are kind of creepy. Also - it would be interesting to hear why they haven't sent someone back to change events of, say, 9/11 (unless I missed it).

Binge watched Season 2 last week. Pretty neat show. Season 1 and 2 explain why stopping 9-11 was a no-go.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!









The first person sent, in a test of the system, actually jumped in to 9-11-2001. And, they can't ever jump anyone farther back than the last jump. I think there are actually some plot holes with that premise, but thats the explanation.

Holy shit this is an amazing show. Anybody with the least interest in sci-fi/time travel should watch it.

I was bummed when they canceled The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I think this has the potential to be even better.

Love the show. The first 15 minutes was confusing but shortly after that straightens out and we enjoyed the 2 seasons. Interesting premise and the characters are just quirky enough to make them interesting. I think the best character is the social worker”boyfriend”. The way he deadpans shit make me laugh.

While I empathize with that boyfriend characters pain, I like the teenager guy. I like the fact that they put the "longest living human in history", who has lived to watch two of his sons die of old age, into the body of a high school kid. He just casually lays out wisdom when he sees fit. Great character.
