    That was cool. Way cool. Electronic paper and everything. And I just don't really know where they're going and am loving every minute.

    ok, as I say most weeks.. "stop making me cry!"
    Sure enough, when he came home and Zach was there, weep-o-rama!

    Loved the Langley plot points, and the birthdays.

    I wish he'd have taken the electronic paper back in time on the next trip to see just how he might magnify the technology of "today." Heck, even just pocketing it so that when he restored the original broken time line he'd still have it in his possession and he could then "invent" it in present day.

    I couldn't stop saying "Whoah!" Very cool for technophiles. Very scary that he erased his son.

    I don't trust the psychic.

    They can't end this series now. :(

    My letter and Rice-a-Roni are on their way.

    Best show ever!!!

    So what's the deal with all the security surrounding Langley? Why would he be getting harassed by so many "non-students"?

    This show has so much potential. So many possibilities to explore.

    After the strike if the put full network support with top writers to take the show to a new quality level the network will have a hit. Right now it has surpassed Heroes as far as intrigue and looking forward to next week.

    The acting is a bit weak at times but this show could really hit it's stride with some more time as the actors and writers get a better handle on the characters.

    I kind of feel sorry for the little girl he zapped back to non-existence.:(

    Another episode that I LOVED. I felt his panic when he realized his son was gone...

    The paper was awesome! Can't wait to have some one day. :)

    When the psychic said "Zach!" I got goose bumps.

    I'll be so bummed if they don't tie up the story with Langley on Wednesday.

    When can I order a holographic monitor to replace my antiquated LCD? :D Hmmm so Elliot Langley is BS'ing him or does he really not know Dan? NBC you are soooooooo stupid for canceling this show!

    Just look what a mess a misplaced camera could do. Misplaced nanotechnology? Much, much worse!

    :D I'll take one of those holographic monitors too! At first I thought Dan maybe changed reality again and that's why Langley didn't know him, but I think there's some sort of cover-up. Perhaps Langley didn't want to be seen talking to Dan because it's dangerous? Or something more sinister. It's always seemed that Langley's been hiding his true intentions from Dan.


    True dat. I was over on the nbc message board for the first time. There were so many first-time posters who came to say the same thing - Don't Cancel the Show. There's a great Top Ten List of Things to do to Save the Show over there too.

    One theory is that she's still on a separate timeline. (Per the "many worlds" interpretation of the laws of quantum mechanics.)

    Or as Doris Day sang, "Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be."

    And remember that NBC originally planned to stop running the show after this episode. To be left hanging after this one would have been terrible (of course it could be worse after the next one but I hope not).

    Despite my wish for it not to be canceled, it does seem to have run it's course in some ways. Most secrets are known etc. etc. Like a mini series.

    As the OP said, one of the great things about this show is how nothing can be predicted reliably and yet the resolution is always satisfactory.

    I'll be missing it when it goes off the air.

    Indeed. The decision borders on mental retardation.

    This was my favorite episode of the season so far. Just incredible.

    It boggles my mind that they haven't figured out how to tally TiVo watchers into the ratings. I mean, seriously, the kind of person that this show appeals to would obviously own the latest technology...

    Someone should write a script about what would happen to NBC if they didn't cancel Journeyman. ;)

    As has been pointed out it has not been canceled. Only 13 episodes were ordered and made and that has been fulfilled. You can't blame them for not ordering more in strike-time. It is said that the strike gives it more chance of surviving since it will be quick to turnaround once the strike is over.

    Oh yeah, and the terrible ratings can't help :)
