Good Story

Watched another episode of Journeyman. I have to say it's my second favorite new show for the year. The writing is really good. Rather than big over the top hysterical jealous reactions from the wife, we're watching her settle into this new reality. She doesn't like it, but she's dealing with it, and dealing with it in a more honest and realistic fashion than I've seen on TV in ages. This week's episode got into Dan's son figuring out what's going on, and there are two basic ways a seven year old kid could deal with it - freak out or think it's cool. It would be so easy to go with freak out, but they didn't. I was proud of the writers.

Plus, it's set in SF, and it's really SF rather than the pale pathetic imitation in the Bionic Woman. Seriously - for the Bionic Woman, just stop calling it San Francisco. It's mythical city X that's definitely not Canada, okay?

An aside: How the hell does a bartender afford that apartment in SF? And how the heck do two reporters, one who is no longer working to be a stay at home mom, afford a big single family house on a giant lot in SF proper? Come on guys! Argh. At least with the reporters I could rationalize by them having family money or investing wisely in the stock market, but still.

Anyway, Journeyman is good stuff. I'm totally curious about the tacheon researcher at Livermore. Jack's reactions are totally honest. And I can't wait to see what they do with the kid. If you're not watching this show, you might want to check it out. It's got room for greatness.

  • So not really a Quantum Leap remake, huh ? it's on after Heroes, which is my favorite show right now. I could tape it and see.
