NBC: "Journeyman" Pilot Review

From TVGuide.com: San Francisco newspaper reporter Dan Vasser (Rome's Kevin McKidd) has the perfect life — a dream job, good friends, a devoted wife (Gretchen Egolf) and son — until he starts having blackouts, during which he travels back in time and crosses paths with his presumed-dead former fiancée (Moon Bloodgood). To get back home, Dan must first alter the events of a stranger's life in order to save him. But will Dan be tempted to change his own past and reunite with his old flame?

The concept is both interesting and original -- like nothing we've seen on TV recently.

It’s actually difficult to describe our feelings for “Journeyman.” I say this because for all of the other pilots we’ve watched, a large amount of notes were taken. While watching this pilot barely any were taken. Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it was more of a, we were so engrossed in what was going on that we didn’t want to miss anything, kind of thing.

I can tell you we did enjoy the pilot, and that Kevin McKidd is definitely a strong leading man. I can also tell you that this is a show that you certainly need to pay attention to. There is a lot of information and back and forth flashes that could possibly be disorienting, not only to the watcher but also to Dan Vasser (McKidd). It was intriguing enough for us to want to find out where it's headed.

Overall the Rating = 3
"Journeyman" airs Monday's at 10pm on NBC
