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 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 »
A beautiful portrayal of the ups and downs of time travel, James Franco is superb and supported by a supremely talented cast.
Daniel Webber depicts Lee Harvey Oswald so exceptionally well it's worth watching just for his performance.
Lucy Fry and Sarah Gadon were both outstanding! There is a very deep and focused character development throughout the mini series, with an impressive array of emotions. Sometimes it's a thriller, sometimes it's sad, overall just a tremendous effort from JJ Abrahms, Stephen King and everyone involved.
Shot in a classic 1960s vibe with a score that fits so well to the overall story.
Please do yourself a favour and start this as soon as possible, I guarantee you will watch parts of it more than once.
