Did You Know?


In the final episode shooting scene, Jake is walking towards a window on the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository. In the distance Reunion Tower is visible (it was built in 1978). Still, kudos for Filming on-site. See more »


The series shows the Texas School Book Depository without the large, yellow, Hertz Rent-a-Car time and temperature sign it had on the roof in the early '60s and until the sign was removed in 1979 due to deterioration. The sign is currently in storage awaiting restoration and possible replacement back onto the roof to return the building to its appearance at the time of the assassination. See more »

User Reviews

Super Interesting and Must Watch !!
18 February 2016 | by modironakSee all my reviews

It has been a long time I have seen James Franco look so promising in a role. Last time when I saw him so good was in 127 Hours. He has done complete justice to the character in the premiere of this show and seems to be in his comfort zone.

As for the show, it does not waste any time to get into action. Franco plays role of Jake Epping, a High School Teacher, who unwillingly has to take up the task of traveling to the past and avoid assassination of JFK. Show is fast paced and keeps you engrossed all the time. You just keep wondering how the story will unfold and will Jake be able to prevent the assassination.

For the premiere, you do not see much of the acting of others as it revolves only around Franco and Cooper. But they both take you to a ride which should not end. Episode was 80mins long but I did not realize when the time flew by. Direction and screenplay is of high standards along with story which is very well thought of.

I personally recommend you to watch the show and guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
