Journeyman creator Kevin Falls has traveled back to Fox with a new pilot based on an Argentinian telenovela.But don't think it'll be all romance and class issues: The series, tentatively titled Eva Adams, centers on a womanizer who inexplicably becomes a woman, and thus begins to understand the abusive practices of which s/he was once guilty. The storyline, which draws from the original series Lalola, is set in the fashion and sports management arenas, Variety says. Falls is set to exec produce the American version, which he also wrote, along with Jamie Tarses (My Boys). Is America ready for a telenovela flecked with morality? — Anna Dimond read more

I had not seen a letter about ...

Question: I had not seen a letter about this, so I thought I'd send an R.I.P. to three recently canceled sci-fi shows, only one of which surprised me. I know you didn't like Journeyman and are tired of people talking about it, but people seemed to miss the fact that that show should not been compared to Quantum Leap or Life on Mars, but rather The Time Traveller's Wife. That's why the relationships took center stage, and I don't think enough has been said about the chemistry between the cast and the great Kevin McKidd. The show really hit its stride in the last few episodes, but if a show doesn't make money, it doesn't. That said, I hope TV gives McKidd a chance for another starring vehicle. The same week that Journeyman was canceled, USA Network's The Dead Zone and The 4400 also got the ax. Somebody should have put a fork in Dead Zone a long time ago. The scripts became worse and worse over the years, and the producers totally lost control of the ongoing mythology. In contrast, The ... read more

Perfidia

Well friends, it looks like the journey has come to an end. In what seemed to be Journeyman's final episode, Dan came into contact with a fellow traveler while in present day Jack went off to confront Dr. Langley and Katie's sister tried to convince her to leave Dan. But did it give us the closure we were looking for?At the start of the episode Dan found himself in the courtyard of a mental hospital where he met Evan, a patient claiming to be another traveler who's medication prevented him from jumping again. As Dan learned more about Evan's experiences and his lost love, he began to see a bit of himself in the stories he was hearing and he agreed to help Evan escape. After instigating a fight with another patient, Dan disappeared back to his own time while Evan made a break for it.Dan returned home to discover he had been gone for almost two days. His extended absence (not to mention the random blood trails he tends to leave) was starting to get to Katie who has been trying so hard... read more

The Hanged Man

It was all about the butterfly effect on this week's next to last episode of Journeyman. During a visit from Katie's sister, Dan disappeared on another journey which took him back in time to the back of a camper that was about to fall over the side of a cliff. After helping the mother and son inside the camper make their escape, he dropped his digital camera as he tried to get himself out. He returned to present day for a brief moment before vanishing once again to retrieve his camera from the past. It was 1984 and both Dan and Livia found themselves wandering around the offices of a software company. The two briefly caught up and discussed Livia's plans to marry her boyfriend in the past before the reason for their appearance in the office park became clear. As it turned out, the mother Dan had previously saved works for the software company and her son was visiting the office trying to make a deal to sell the digital camera Dan had dropped. When Dan tried to steal the camera away,... read more

Can Journeyman Be Saved? Rice-throwing Fans Aren't McKidding Around

What peanuts did for Jericho, fans of Journeyman hope "the San Francisco Treat" will do for their freshly dissed favorite. At least two organized fan campaigns — at SaveJourneyman.net and SaveJourneyman.funurl.com — urge would-be saviors to shower NBC with Rice-A-Roni as a means to earn the series a second chance. "All indications are that NBC doesn't want to cancel this show. They love it. They just can't justify keeping it on the schedule," posits SaveJourneyMan.net. "Let's see if we can give them that justification."Might the effort prompt Peacock decision-makers to travel back in time and reverse their decision to not greenlight the freshman drama's back nine? After all, thus far some 93 percent of you think NBC should reconsider. "We never say never," a source close to the production tells TVGuide.com. "Anything can happen." read more

Time's Up for Journeyman; Should NBC Reconsider?

Kevin McKidd's time travels appear to be over. NBC had until Tuesday to award a full-season pickup to Journeyman — as it has done with freshman series Chuck and Life — but... didn't, says the Reporter, and thus has essentially dismissed the drama.Small consolation to Journeymanfans: The show was able to complete its original 13-episode order before the WGA struck, and the remaining two will air as scheduled, an NBCer assures the trade.What's your take? Was Journeyman just finding its footing, or did its "time" simply come?POLL: Should NBC give Journeyman another chance? Vote here. read more

Any news on whether ...

Question: Any news on whether Journeyman will see a second season? It's just starting to get really good. Answer: All signs point to no, which is why you should drop everything you're doing and head over to savejourneyman.net to find out what you can do to help save the show. (Hint: It involves buying lots of Rice O Roni.) Meanwhile, the final two episodes (likely ever) are scheduled to air on Dec. 17 and 19. OK, that's a wrap, folks. Back by popular demand… it's the housekeeping notes! There's my blog. The read more

Home By Another Way

It was a very merry Journeyman episode this week when Dan and Livia traveled to 1979 on Christmas Eve. It happened to be the night that Dan’s present-day tyrannical boss took over the paper and the night before his father left his family. Not the best way to spend the holidays but it had a certain scrooge-like charm. As things got underway, we caught a glimpse of Livia’s life in the 40’s and it seems she’s got a new man. Despite her lingering feelings for Dan made obvious by the futuristic picture of the two of them at a baseball game, Livia seems to finally understand that Dan has moved on and has a family of his own in his own time. In 2007, the Vasser family was preparing to host a Christmas party at the house when Dan learns that he is part of a planned 25% staff cut at work. After unsuccessfully pleading with his boss’ boss to save everyone’s jobs, Dan is tossed into another wormhole and emerges at his office Christmas party in 1979.While surveyin... read more

Blowback

Watching this week’s Journeyman, it became pretty clear just how much of a raw deal Dan got with this whole time traveling business. Since the show began, he’s not once gone back in time before the 1970’s and he’s never left San Francisco. Because of this, it has made it really difficult for present day Dan to avoid the people he has come into contact with in the past. We’ve seen this happen in previous episodes but in this week’s show, it really came back to bite him in the bum.When we left off last week, we saw Aeden Bennett (the kidnapper Dan sent away to prison in the past) out of jail and stalking Dan and his family. As things picked up again, the action kicked off within moments as Aeden burst into Dan’s house and shot him. Before Aeden could fully exact his revenge, Dan was saved by another journey into the past to 1980. Suffering from a gunshot wound, Livia rushed to his side and got him treated at a nearby hospital. Temporarily healed, Liv... read more
