Time Travel Travails
20 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I'd swear that some of the people who produced this show are about as cynical as it is possible to be. This is probably the fifth or sixth episode where a scientist who has made amazing discoveries is about to get the financial plug pulled. He has been working on time travel and is not being allowed to continue, even though he believes that he is on the brink of something great. Well, we know what's going to happen. He hops in the device and finds himself a couple days ahead of the date he entered. He goes home to his wife (an edgy, somewhat combative woman, quite beautiful) and finds her dead on the living room floor with a bullet hole in her chest. He doesn't know the cause but is afraid he may have been responsible. He hustles back to the machine and returns to the time he left. Now he has knowledge of the death and has decided to try to intervene. Of course, his wife thinks he is nuts. Since he has been fired, this adds to his image of instability. It is also obvious that their marriage is on the rocks and he frightens her. The fact is he has not been there for her and she is tired of it. She even calls his co-worker, who, of course, quotes the company line on the project. One other kicker is that our boy is incredibly jealous. One little problem is the awful security at the plant. Any dodo could break into the facility. Anyway, I won't inject any spoilers but wait for the finish and then look up the word "kismet."
