  1. This new NBC time-travel drama is fairly mind-blowing and harrowing, laying out a preposterous scenario that it makes feel nonetheless believable.

    McKidd and castmates Gretchen Egolf as his wife Katie; Reed Diamond as his brother Jack, a cop who used to date Katie; and Moon Bloodgood as his spectral fiance, Livia, play this with just the right mix of credulity and dry wit.
  3. San Francisco shifts shapes nicely, and there’s sufficient tension in the pilot to keep our nerves strung out, and since executive producers Kevin Falls and Alex Graves are West Wing veterans, it’s no surprise that the characters pass for adults.

    Journeyman is an enjoyable romp--one that provides the accessibility of a procedural as well as the continuing mystery of "Lost" or "Heroes." [28 Sep 2007, p.94]

    The pilot still is often clever and engaging, but confusing too.

    The biggest question you'll be left with after tonight's premiere is a big, fat "why?"

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 »
