Storyline

While visiting the graveyard of his beloved wife with his daughter Jesse, the physics professor John T. Neumeyer finds a case with a police dossier relating his death in five days. He initially believes it is a sick prank from the brilliant but deranged physics student Carl Axelrod, but when a series of events related in the documents occur, he realizes that the file has been sent from the future. With the support of Detective Irwin Sikorski, whose name is indicated in the file as in charge of the investigation of his death, and suspecting of everybody including his girlfriend Claudia Whitney that has a blurred hidden past, J.T. tries to change the future and his fate. But Carl believes that any modification in the time-line will jeopardize mankind and the future of the planet. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The events in the mini-series take place Monday, 7 June 2004 through Friday, 11 June 2004. The show premiered on the SciFi Channel (USA) on Monday, 7 June 2004 and consecutive episodes were shown each night through Friday, 11 June 2004 roughly following a real-time schedule. The fourth episode (with events ending at or slightly past 3.55am according to the script) was actually first shown at 9.00pm on Thursday, 10 June 2004, so the series did get ahead a bit. Additional date-specific product placements (for instance, a poster for The Chronicles of Riddick (2004), playing in theaters at the time, as seen on a slow pan at the university outside Neumeyer's office) and current popular culture references (for example, a reference to the popular show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000), airing at the time on network TV) in conversation help reinforce this setup.

Goofs

During the first hour, J.T. is shown in a flashback when his wife dies on 7 June 1994. The newscast in the background is reporting O.J. Simpson's family is begging him to turn himself in. The murders did not happen until 12 June 1994. See more »

Great Mini Series
10 June 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I was hooked and just awaiting part 4. Timothy Hutton did a great job and Gage Golightly was just outstanding. (And she does resemble Drew Barrymore) She has talent! Very inspiring to see her with such great strength and intelligence. This character could be a role model for the adults! Hopefully will see her in other projects down the road if she so desires! Let's face it; this generated the buzz on the bulletin boards. I am just glad there are stories with plot lines that you can still see on TV. I'm not a fan on reality programming so good or bad, it is great to watch something that is rare on TV today. (Sad isn't it!) So my thanks to Sci Fi for bring new shows to the public. And on a final note; the music used on this series was great.
