There are a lot of time travel stories on TV right now,
which is really unusual. Besides this show, we also ahve the
new show "Timeless," and there's still time traveling on
"The Flash" and "12 Monkeys." In all of these shows,
the common theme seems to be, "Don't mess with time!"
I say this because in every case, changing the past has
really messed up the present for each of the protagonists. I
guess it if it were easy and always worked, there wouldn't
be much drama.
This one is based on a movie, but it is different from the
movie (and not just because the movie featured a man, and
the TV series features a woman). The movie's basic
plot is covered in the pilot, but then it spins off into the
serial killer story at the end, so we'll see more of that as
the series progresses. That serial killer plot was in the
movie as well, but it was a lot shorter.
Raimy (Peyton List) is a cop that holds a lot of bitterness
toward her dead father (who was also a cop). He left his
family to go undercover, and when he died, it appeared that
he was corrupt. She then finds out that she can
communicate with her dad in the past through his old ham
radio. So we see two parallel stories in 1996 and now.
The original movie took place in 1999, and the character
talked to his father 30 years earlier, which made it a
little bit more fun because that was a very different time
and era. 1996 was not all that different from now.
However, Peyton List is an amazing actress, and the other
actors in the show are also really good. Mekhi Phifer (of ER
fame) plays her dad's former partner, whom she now works
with. Riley Smith, who's been in many great TV shows, does a
fine job as her dad. List and Smith have good family
