So i watched the 4th and 5th episode of "Journeyman" and...
The 4th episode was excellent in my opinion,probably the best episode of the show so far. the 5th episode wasn't as good,but it had it's moments,and i can say for sure,that it one of the better episodes,so far.
And i think we,finally,starting to get some possible answers about the way Dan is travelling in time...
Anyway one thing i can say for sure,about the show - I really like it opening theme.

Episode tonight was pretty good.

It has a few things developing well and others are wonky. But overall its getting better.

The theme song is good too.

This show just started in theK on Skyone last thursday and have to say that I am quite impressed. The first episode, although generally solid - save the fluffy 'family love' garbage' - was entertaining and I find Kevin 'Rome Guy' McKidd a likeable lead.

The idea of more than one time-traveller is interesting and the modern take that he can take things like his phone and iPod with him is a good device for objects in time as well as yourself.

To be honest i'd probably embark on the world's biggest looting spree in history.

BTW: And yeah, the theme song rocks

I read some posts about this show on IMDB's Board,and...i have some bad news for the people,who watch this show,and enjoy it - It seems NBC going to cancel this show.
Personly, I hope it's not true,and NBC will give the show,at least 1 full season.

Maybe.

The writers strike doesn't bode well for the show, since its trying to catch an audience and the limbo might tune people out before it gets a chance.

The last few episodes have been really good though ( tonight's especially ) and its starting to hit its stride.

Even HaWKE (He Who Knows Everything - or thinks he does) can't figure it out. I don't think we have enough inny and outy pluggy things!!

As you can probably tell my technical abilities and knowlege are somewhat lacking.

Just plug the AV leads coming out of the set top box into the IN ports of your VCR, then plug the AV leads coming out of the VCR into the TV.

Put the VCR onto it's AV channel and the TV onto its AV channel, then put the set top box onto (I think it's) Channel 10.

Put a video into the VCR and press record.

Hope that helps

HaWKE wants to know: Where does the DVD plug in

He's going to have a look later (before Thursday) but he said "Ohhhh!! That might work"

I said "Huh???"

Thank you for offering advice - its very kind of you

Yeah, it's not that hard, once you understand all the "ins and outs" lol.

I'm the only person in our household who can hook up our electronics... it gets a bit annoying actually lol.

Oh, and as for the "Where does the DVD go?" question, if there's a 2nd set of AV inlets in your VCR just plug it into that. Then you just change channels from (say) AV1 to AV2 on your VCR and you can play your DVDs that way... if you're lucky you might find some DVDs that aren't protected and even be able to tape them

On the downside, I missed tonight's episode, i thought it was on at 9:30, not 8:30

Bexter, after you watch it, may I please either get a copy of it, or could you please send me the tape so I can make one?

Alrighty!!! Sat down tonight with not a lot of enthusiasm to watch journeyman (on video thanks to naggindragons excellent instructions) and well.... I loved it!!!!! After everything I read I thought it would be crap. Who cares if we don't know why he's travelling in time. I loved that he comes back to his own time and I especially loved the last 5 mins, which I won't describe in detail due to it being a spoiler and I don't know how to do that spoiler thingy, hang on I'll try:

highlight to read: When he digs up the ring to prove to his wife that he really is travelling in time end highlight (if i have stuffed this up and you can all see it.. I'M SORRY)


Anyway I am really looking forward to next weeks episode.

I really like this show. After the many adverts on Sky One, I decided to watch the series in parallel with Heroes. To my sadness, I've read reviews and I saw it has taken ratings dips. I hope the writer's strike isn't affecting it too much.

There's much potential to the show, I hope to see it develop into a great series.

hi i just watched the 10 th episode and i found it very good.But from different forums i looked at about this show people say that nbc decided to cancell the show becouse of the poor ratings so we wont see a second season.And also on the episode guide of the show there are 12 episodes but i cant find the last two 11 and 12.so has the show cancelled?
if they did that crime for second time first with QL then what can i say.
A big thank you to nbc who knows how to respect their viewers

Including the episode that aired today, 11 episodes of Journeyman have aired. NBC has the 12th and 13th episodes scheduled to air next Monday and Wednesday. I believe that is all the new episodes had before the Writer's Strike.

If Journeyman was, indeed, doing poorly ratings-wise, the chances of it being brought back when the Writer's Strike is brought to a conclusion is highly unlikely.

That's not a matter of NBC respecting or disrespecting their viewers. It's a matter of their not being enough viewership in order to make it viable to continue to air it. Advertisers don't want to pay for advertising spots in a show that is doing poorly and not reaching a large enough audience. Without the advertisers, networks will not have the funds necessary in order to continue broadcasting, produce new programming, etc. It's really a simple matter of good business.

Yes, there are going to be viewers that are disappointed that a program is canceled. They may even feel as if they've been disrespected or betrayed by the network but, ultimately, a network has to serve the majority and has to answer to its stockholders.

But why is it always the shows I like that get cancelled

It just seems that most sci-fi doens't end up with enough of an audience to sustain it. Really sad.

Sci fi doesn't really appeal to a broad audience. It appeals to a niche audience which is why it's harder for a sci-fi show to really m ake a go of it.

you are totally right!!! What a shame that the 'broad audience' can't see the error of their ways. Then all our fave shows would still be screening

Honestly - I think "Journeyman" is an o.k show,only.if it will get cancelled I won't say it's such a big loss.I just hope if it'll get cancelled - they writers of the show won't leave it with some kind of a Cliffhunger.

A bit like Day Break then? At least they were given 3 episodes warning that it was cancelled - they could wrap things up...

Sad to here this though, I was really enjoying Journeyman.
