A teacher discovers a time portal that leads to October 21st, 1960 and goes on a quest to try and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which is complicated by the presence of Lee Harvey Oswald and the fact that he's falling in love with the past itself. Written by
The Hertz ID created by Al and given to Jake in episode 1 is a reference to the Hertz Rent-A-Car sign atop the Texas school book depository at the time of the assassination. For some reason the producers didn't recreate the sign atop the TSBD for the series. See more »
The main premise of the show is that the protagonists don't know for sure that Oswald was the lone gunman hence the long stakeout. However, given that going back 'resets' everything the quickest way to ascertain Oswald's involvement would be to shoot Oswald, go back to 2016 and see if Kennedy survived. If he was still assassinated then going back again would 'undo' Oswald's unnecessary death and Jake could concentrate on finding the real assassin.
But Oswald only returns to the US in 62. So it will always take at least 2 years to complete the test. See more »
Can't wait on episode 5 and wanting more, it's just so entertaining! I was born in 1960 so I have heard about this my whole life but not the way this show tells it. I thought it may be too scary with Steven King billing but it's not, at all. I have never heard of the book so I am glad to have nothing to compare it too. I can't wait to find out so much and am spending loads of time thinking about what could or will happen. Not going to say anything about it except, watch it Way to go Hulu, this in itself is worth my $11.99 for the month lol actors, art direction is all more than I expected, when I accidentally found this! I enjoy Hulu more and more and now that I know they are going to mix it up with shows like this, I am in for good! Thanks to all
