Trivia

During the opening credits of some, but not all episodes, a diagram of a serpant eating its own tail is shown in yellow with a black background. This symbol is known as the ouroboros. The ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it. Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, or eating its own tail. This symbolizes the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Super Interesting and Must Watch !!
18 February 2016 | by See 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.
