How can they only make 11 episodes?
13 June 2004 | by who_is_in_chargeSee all my reviews

Hey everyone. I am in UK, as you can see, so we got DO-OVER a lot later than USA, plus, it is shown at 3am on a Friday, which is really unfair coz i have to be up at 7am on Saturdays to work. I still always stay up to watch it, and i have developed a love for it. For anyone who is still debatin exactly how he was sent back in time, and the mathmatical faux-pas that takes place, for a start, the programme was made 3 years ago, which sorts that one out. Next, he was shocked by defribrillators when the ambulance arrives to attend to his father who has caused a fire in the house (since his wife left him, see episode 4 for details). He was shocked when his sister (recently out of rehab, see episode 6)laughs at his new hair plugs, since he lost his hair when he was quite young due to heightened stress levels (see episode 2). she uses the line 'lets jumpstart your hair', not realisin the machine is on. Pointin out now, thats impossible. Defribrillators will only work if put in the right place. Anyway, my main point is that the show is BRILLIANT! I fell in love with it (as well as natasha melnick, don't worry, i am only 17) when i saw the first episode, and boy am i hooked. Its so clever, and i love the nostalgia feel. Anyway, DO OVER rocks, and any directors or producers out there, please make more episodes.
