    Spend an hour with Journeyman and you'll wish you knew how to time-travel.
  2. 30
    Everything about this time-traveling drama seems rote and stale. The show is a pallid, uninspired execution of ideas we've seen done better elsewhere.
  3. The next time McKidd hits the time warp, he should take his producers with him. Maybe they'd bring back a better show.
  4. Journeyman doesn't do anything especially interesting with its time-twisting premise. It's competently produced, but unless you have a tremendous amount of affection for McKidd left over from his work as the insane Lucius Vorenus on HBO's "Rome," it's skippable.
  5. The only thing dull, disappointing Journeyman can do is lower our pulse rates to ready us for beddy-bye.
  6. 20
    The premise is weak and leaky, the star is dull and dreary, and the only trip Journeyman ought to take is right back to the shop for repairs--or off to the dump for a decent burial.

What a magnificent TV show. Heart warming, thought provoking, and beautifully immersive. The user score speaks for itself, 9.2 (161 ratings). In a perfect world this would have been at least two seasons. Absolutely worth a watch if you haven't seen it already. If you liked Journeyman you may also enjoy the TV show Rubicon. Full Review »

    I wonder about these critics and their ability to judge quality entertainment. If you really want some honest fan critiques go to I wonder about these critics and their ability to judge quality entertainment. If you really want some honest fan critiques go to heynielsen.com and see what the Journeyman fans have to say. I watched all 13 episodes of Journeyman and found it to be great quality programming with wonderful entertainment value. The writing was superb and the storyline was different as Dan traveled back to his distant past. The character development showed lots of depth in the main characters and brilliant acting. The relationships between the characters was very appealing. Great musical scores and beautiful, skillful cinematography. Go to hulu.com to see all of the episodes for free. Full Review »
