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 »
I just watched the first 3 episodes. Time travel theme to the 50-60s is cleverly portrayed. Costume and set designs are spot on accurate. Franco is perfect for this role he is believable and funny at times. Like how it shows him adapting to his time-era change i.e. shopping for his suit and hat; eating at the diner past- present. Set designs with all the old cars and everyday people on street well done. I am definitely hooked on watching this series hope it continues to be brilliant. So i didn't read the book and don't need to compare it for authenticity. This mystery drama stands on its own for me as a must watch. Thanks to the director producers and screen writers for giving us a very good series to watch and enjoy.
