This show debuted in the Fall of 2007, and follows a San Francisco reporter named Dan Vasser, who finds himself yanked backwards into the past at random and unpredictable intervals. While dealing with the fallout in his personal and professional life of his sudden disappearances, he must somehow figure out what his mission in the past is. Among the complications that ensue is a reunion with a long-dead lover.
Reviews were first posted at SFScope, then here one week later. I have, for the time being, suspended reviews of this show. It just didn’t get any better, and week after week I was having to force myself to watch. If it improves in the future, I may come back to it, but frankly it’s just too boring to watch now. The producers have mistaken confusion for complexity. Too bad, because I really loved the fact that it was shot in my favorite city, San Francisco.
