Trivia

The series projected into the then future of 2008, but was airing just before and after September 2001 and therefore their version of 2008 had the WTC still standing, because it was filmed beforehand. See more »

More sizzle than steak
13 August 2001 | by awjonesjrSee all my reviews

The premise for this series sounded pretty interesting: five people have their stories told as the timeline jumps forward and backward, giving us insight into where they were and where they are headed. But the potential for something fun and unique is basically squandered by pretty standard storytelling and plots: The nebbishy Jewish guy, the confused arty homosexual, the career-obsessed lawyer, the trashy actress. The plotlines are fairly standard, the flashforwards (to 2008) are generally uninventive as futurism, and while the acting is generally adequate, it doesn't excite your interest and make you want to come back. The show should be given a chance to develop, but it needs to make substantial strides quickly if it wants to gin up the loyalty of Queer as Folk or Sex and the City.
