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
Sarah Gadon (Sadie Dunhill) and Joanna Douglas (Doris Dunning) have both appeared together in the TV show 'Being Erica'. They played Katie Atkins and Samantha Strange respectively. 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 »
Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, however his movies and TV stints have left a lot to be desired with a few exceptions (Shawshank, Green Mile). I have to say, this is his best work yet, and it's not even a movie. I get to enjoy this for a while to come and am very excited to do so.
11.22.63 is about a man who has time traveled to the 60's. And what would you do if you could time travel to the 60's? Well save JFK of course! I won't go into any detail as you have to watch it yourself.
The acting, production, direction, scenery, everything is absolutely perfect. It is one of the few shows I could not find one single flaw in, and I'm 3 episodes in!
If you have a chance, see this gem, you will be pleased.
