Journeyman is a 2007 American science-fiction romance television series created by Kevin Falls for 20th Century Fox Television which aired on the NBC television network.[1] It starred Kevin McKidd as Dan Vasser, a San Francisco reporter who involuntarily travels through time. Alex Graves, who directed the pilot, and Falls served as executive producers.[1] Despite the similarities in the titles, and the theme of time travel, the show is unrelated to the adventure game franchise The Journeyman Project.

The show premiered on September 24, 2007, airing Mondays at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.[1][2] The initial order from the network was for 13 episodes, all of which were produced prior to the 2007 Writers Guild of America strike by screenwriters. However, the series suffered from low ratings,[3] and NBC canceled it in April 2008.[4] The final episode of Journeyman aired on Wednesday, December 19, 2007.

Plot[edit]

The series centers on Dan Vasser, a newspaper reporter living with his wife Katie and young son Zack in San Francisco. For an unknown reason, one day he begins "jumping" backward in time. He soon learns that each series of jumps follows the life of a person whose destiny he seems meant to change. Dan's jumping affects his family life and his job, and instills suspicion in his brother Jack, a police detective. While in the past, Dan reconnects with his ex-fiancée, Livia, whom he had believed was killed in a plane crash but who is actually a fellow time traveler.

Fictional cosmology[edit]

Dan's "shifts" through time occur seemingly at random. The only indication he has to an oncoming jump is a feeling in his head which varies from right before he jumps to several seconds of warning. Initially, the feelings were headaches. However, as the series progresses the headaches become less painful. Dan appears to have no control over the shifts. The first jump is several decades into the past; through a series of jumps, he jumps nearer to the present, usually years at a time. When Dan met Evan in the series finale, Evan told Dan that he was a traveler too. It was implied that Evan had traveled to different time periods at random. The same can be inferred with Livia, who claims that she has gone through many jumps of her own. But her jumps are quite different from Dan's.

The jumps manifest themselves with a small blue flash and a ripple as Dan appears to vanish from the present, and appear instantly in the past. He is missing from the present for a period of time unrelated to the period he spends in the past. His disappearances and reappearances are rarely witnessed by anyone else. Dan does not arrive in the same location he departed, but instead arrives near the person who he is supposed to help. His jumps are typically restricted to the area he leaves from, usually keeping him in the San Francisco area. Originally, when Dan arrives to the past, he is unconscious. But as the series goes on, Dan somehow gets a hold on the jumps. It becomes evident when Dan feels the jumps coming on and as the jump occurs, he is seen walking with the ripples being shown behind him. Dan is also trying to figure out the mechanics of his travels. He has questioned a physicist who seems to have known his father in the past, and has discussed the possibility of tachyon particles being able to cause time jumps. It is now clear that the scientist is aware of Dan's travels, as well as those of others like him. It has also been discovered that those born around the time of a rare passing comet (the fictional "Joseph-Lee" comet) have this ability.

Dan's journeys appear to each have an innate purpose, which is not always apparent to him, but involves positively changing the destiny of a certain person. Likewise, fate seems to conspire against him if he tries to alter other events beyond his current charge. Alterations Dan makes to the timeline affect the present and the memories of everyone in it. However, his own memories are unaltered, and he recalls events as they originally occurred before his interference.

Dan is not alone in his tendency to time-travel. His ex-fiancée Livia, thought to have been killed in a plane crash, actually traveled back to her "home time", 1948, from where she jumps forward in time. Dan meets Livia on his jumps into the past, as she jumps into her future to offer her experience and assistance with Dan's missions. As revealed in the episode "Perfidia", there was at least one other person who also jumps through time, named Evan. However, the death of that individual occurs shortly before Dan experiences his first jump in the first episode, bringing the whole series full circle, making Dan believe that the loss of Evan as a time traveler created a void which Dan filled. Livia and Dan also sensed that Livia's purpose in accompanying him came to an end at that point, and that they would not see much of each other after that mission.

Cast and characters[edit]

  • Dan Vasser (played by Kevin McKidd) is a reporter for the fictional newspaper the San Francisco Register. Dan is the main protagonist of the series, who finds himself jumping through time, unable to stop or control the jumps. He has a son, Zack, with his wife of 7 years, Katie — his brother's ex-girlfriend. Dan was previously engaged to Livia Beale before her disappearance and supposed death in a plane crash. Dan is a recovered gambling addict.
  • Katie Vasser (played by Gretchen Egolf) is Dan's wife and mother of their son Zack. Until recently, she was the only one in the present who knew about her husband's time-traveling. Katie was the long-time girlfriend of Dan's brother Jack. Since their break-up nine years ago, the two have remained somewhat distant; partly because Katie ended up getting pregnant by Dan and they married soon after. Before marrying Dan, Katie was a television reporter. In response to cutbacks at the Register, and Dan's traveling, Katie returns to television to ensure a stable income for the family.
  • Olivia "Livia" Beale (played by Moon Bloodgood) is Dan's ex-fiancée who was presumed dead after a plane crash nearly ten years before the start of the series. It is revealed that she is actually a time traveler from 1948 who jumps into the future. After not being able to jump home for an uncertain amount of years, she was stuck in Dan's present and adapted to life there, where she began a legal career and fell in love with Dan, only to finally jump back home while on the plane before it crashed. In "Blowback" and in the final episode, "Perfidia", she and Dan speculated that Dan was the target of her extended jump, and that her mission was to get Dan and Katie together (which was arguably a result of her supposed death). For unknown reasons, she now jumps to the same times that Dan visits, and offers him advice and assistance in his missions.
  • Jack Vasser (played by Reed Diamond) is Dan's brother. Jack, a police detective, is dating Dr. Theresa Sanchez (Lisa Sheridan), but also has feelings for Katie (his ex). Jack forms a number of misconceptions about Dan's disappearances and apparent irresponsibility, refusing to believe his brother when Dan tries to explain the time traveling. Believing Dan has perhaps returned to his gambling vice, Jack uses his police resources to investigate Dan's life. Jack is finally convinced of Dan's time traveling when Livia meets with Jack to enlist his help in getting Dan out of a desperate situation.
  • Hugh Skillen (played by Brian Howe) is the editor-in-chief of the San Francisco Register and Dan's boss and friend.
  • Zack Vasser (played by Charles Henry Wyson) is Dan and Katie's son, who has seen Dan disappear, believing it to be magic. Dan often fears leaving his son as his father left him when he was Zack's age.

Main crew[edit]

Kevin Falls, Alex Graves, Joan Binder Weiss, J.R. Orci, Neal Ahern, Megan Mascena, Matt McGuinness, Paul Redford, David Hyman, Juan Carlos Coto, Tom Szentgyorgyi, Dana Calvo, and Robert Ulrich (Casting Director).

Production[edit]

Exteriors of the Vasser family home were shot at Foy House, 1337 Carroll Ave., Angelino Heights, Echo Park, Los Angeles.[5] At the end of episode ten the Innes House made famous as Halliwell Manor in the series Charmed can be seen next door to the south-east.

Episodes of the show were made available online,[1] and NBC distributed the pilot on a fall-preview DVD at Blockbuster and other retail video-rental stores.[6][7]

United Kingdom's Sky One, Australia's Channel Ten,[8] TV3 in New Zealand and Canada's Global network[9] acquired broadcast rights to the series.

When the show was not renewed for a full season, some Journeyman supporters initiated an attempt to revive production of the series by sending boxes of Rice-A-Roni (a product associated with San Francisco) to NBC, echoing the "Nuts" campaign which led to a second season of the CBS series Jericho.[10] Journeyman creator Kevin Falls acknowledged the campaign in his blog, saying "Your fight to save Journeyman has humbled and moved us. I'm certainly not going to tell you to stop now". However, Falls also said that there were long odds against a revival, stating "Journeyman will likely not be getting a back nine order."[11] As of April 2, 2008, the show was confirmed as officially canceled by NBC.[4]

The younger brother has become mentally ill and obsessed with time travel. He is an apparent math genius. In the initial history he mails a letter bomb, which Dan is able to avoid happening by going back in time to warn the company that received the letter bomb. Dan and the older brother confront him and he comments that Dan must be a time traveler as he has never aged at any of the times they meet. During this period, Dan and his brother also clash. At the dénouement, however, Dan discovers that his brother was only trying to protect him.

In 2007, Katie helps Dan dispose of Dylan McCleen's money before FBI Agent Richard Garrity (Paul Schulze) serves the Vassers with a search warrant, citing Dan's unexplained disappearance from a commercial airliner. After Dan disappears into the past, Katie discovers an antique photograph that sheds new light on Dan's old flame: Livia is originally from 1948. Dan travels back to November 17, 1973 and, along with Livia, tracks Abigail Armstrong, a college student who leaves home after a falling-out with her mother. Through Dan's intervention in 1974, Abby falls in with a group of hippies who later commit a robbery in which a man is killed, resulting in Abby's incarceration for life. Dan and Livia then travel to the day of the robbery to set history back to rights.

9 "Emily" (Part 1) Frederick King Keller Juan Carlos Coto November 19, 2007 (2007-11-19) 1ANJ08 5.61[20]
Dan travels back to 1992 and rescues Emily, a girl who had gone missing and never been found. As Dan tracks Emily through her troubled adolescence, he realizes that rescuing her may have led to the kidnapping and murder of another girl in 2001, and that the same man who kidnapped Emily is likely responsible. Livia warns Dan not to alter history further by attempting to rescue this new victim, but he ignores her advice. In 2007, Katie deals with Zack's misbehavior at Herbert Wells Elementary School, and fears that he may be acting out in response to his father's increasing absences. Jack slowly begins to accept the idea that Dan may, in fact, be traveling through time, and assists his brother in an unofficial investigation into the affairs of Aeden Bennett (Raphael Sbarge).
10 "Blowback" (Part 2) Karen Gaviola Kevin Falls November 26, 2007 (2007-11-26) 1ANJ09 6.05[21]
In 2007, a recently paroled Aeden Bennett attacks Dan Vasser in his home, shooting him moments before Dan travels into the past. With Dan away, Aeden tricks Katie into returning home by posing as a plumber and taking her hostage. Hugh informs Jack that, according to "a source," the FBI is not conducting any open investigations into Dan's activities, implying that Agent Garrity is a rogue operator. Garrity later shows Jack a photograph of Dan prior to his disappearance from Flight 1680, and compares it to a bystander in another photograph of Diana Bloom disembarking her plane after giving birth in 1975; Garrity's statements imply that he knows about Dan's unique ability. Garrity visits Dan's home, where the agent is shot by Bennett. In 1980, Dan finds himself tracking Aeden Bennett as a child locked alone in his home, and attempts to get the 10-year-old to safety. He is stalled when Aeden's father, an abusive police officer, arrives home and terrorizes the boy; after Aeden's father leaves, Dan explains Aeden's future before Livia arrives and helps Dan, whose bleeding has become life-threatening, to safety. Livia travels to 2007 where she explains Dan's predicament to Jack before vanishing again, and Jack finds Dan at the hospital, having recently returned as well. The two race to Katie's aid, and Dan talks Bennett down by invoking Bennett's memory of their encounter in 1980. After Bennett is taken back into custody, Jack comes to accept his brother's peculiarity.
11 "Home By Another Way" Lesli Linka Glatter Tom Szentgyorgyi December 10, 2007 (2007-12-10) 1ANJ10 5.28[22]
Dan travels back to the newspaper's holiday party on December 24, 1979 after Christmas Eve layoffs hit his office. He also runs into his father, Frank Vasser, (Joel Gretsch) in the past and attempts to make his father not leave his family. Dan fails, but is able to make his father explain why he is leaving before he leaves them. Elsewhere, Katie tries to put her traumatizing experience behind her while trying to deal with Jack and Dan's mother. Meanwhile, Jack and Theresa find out that Theresa is pregnant. Theresa also becomes suspicious of Dan, but suspects that he has a mental illness. Jack and Dan's mother and Katie have a heart to heart talk about Dan.
12 "The Hanged Man" (Part 1) Steven DePaul Tracy McMillan December 17, 2007 (2007-12-17) 1ANJ11 4.24[23]
While saving a mother and son (Christopher) from a car accident, Dan drops his digital camera which is later recovered by Christopher. This piece of modern technology in 1984 boosts computing technology far beyond current capabilities, presumably through reverse engineering. Once back in the present, Dan discovers that his computer has a holographic screen, and that he no longer has a son — a consequence of a "nanotech" malfunction at the Register office on the date that Zack had been conceived — but rather a daughter named Caroline. Meanwhile, Jack looks into the life of the rogue FBI agent who was targeting Dan. After resolving the camera issue and saving Christopher's life, the psychic from Dan's alternate present comes into his home, presenting him his "birth chart". She explains that Dan's birthdate — July 6, 1972 — coincides with the passing of the Joseph-Lee Comet, believed by astrologers to have mystic properties, and that the Comet has passed the Earth only twice in the past century; the other passing occurred on Livia's birthday — March 3, 1923. Meanwhile, Jack pulls some strings to dig into Agent Garrity's casefile, and finds an old photograph, taken by Frank Vasser, of a young Dan with Professor Elliot Langley at NASA. When Dan contacts Langley, however, the professor denies knowing him. To be continued...
13 "Perfidia" (Part 2) Alex Graves Aeden Babish & Matt McGuinness December 19, 2007 (2007-12-19) 1ANJ12 4.62[24]
Dan wakes up in a mental institute with a cut on his head. He meets a patient named Evan, who claims to also be a traveler like Dan. Evan says his jumps have stopped because of the sedatives he's given, but wants to get out to meet the love of his life. Dan doesn't quite believe him entirely, but he helps Evan escape using a fight as a distraction. Dan finds out that Evan was killed jaywalking. Meanwhile Katie's sister is dropping hints that she should leave Dan and get her own home. Then, later that day, Dan jumps back into the past with Livia to stop him--Evan--from dying. Evan provides proof that he actually is a traveler, and that the woman he's "stalking" was his wife in an alternate reality. Evan says that his personal life suffered so much because of his traveling that he changed the past by preventing his marriage to spare his wife the misery. Dan and Livia manage to get them together for one salsa dance before Evan collapses and dies. Dan then notes that the date they traveled to is September 2007, just a few months before the present. He then spots himself getting into a cab to jump for the very first time across the street from where Evan has just died. Dan wonders if Evan had to die for him to start traveling. Back in the present, Dan finally meets the Professor Langley. The professor says he is trying to avoid any contact with Dan because of the temptation to force Dan to change the past for his own benefit. He knows what Dan does, having started his studies based on anachronisms like an Incan clay replica of a modern airplane. Back at home, Dan reassures Katie that he'll always come home. Katie wants to see Dan jump, and finally catches a glimpse as he disappears at night.

Reception[edit]

The series premiere, "A Love of a Lifetime", was watched by 9.2 million people, and received a 3.5/9 share among adults 18–49 years old.[25] Mike Pearson of the Rocky Mountain News felt that Journeyman cannibalized past television shows Early Edition and Quantum Leap. In his opinion, the second episode was more coherent than the first.[26] Tony Whitt of IfMagazine.com gave "A Love of a Lifetime" an A−, and felt that one aspect of Journeyman that was better than Quantum Leap was its love story. He also liked the acting in "A Love of a Lifetime" and called star McKidd "damn watchable".[27] Karla Peterson of The San Diego Union-Tribune felt that "A Love of a Lifetime" was "a deft mix of supernatural wizardry and grown-up drama".[28]
