    i didn't notice this at all, perhaps the center channel volume is too low on your system (do you watch the HD 5.1 feed?)

    I didn't have a problem with the sound at all last night. We watched it on a tiny cheap tv though since we're not at home.

    I hope this show does good ratings, I like it.

    EDIT just looked and it appears Journeyman got a 3.3 and Chuck got a 3.1...

    I loved the point where it dawns on him that Livia might be assigned to tracking him!

    I also am beginning to suspect the reason she disappeared was that the stress of all her time traveling was going to be too much, and she realized she was better "disappeared" but then there were his questions on where, and when she lived.

    I too loved "no citrus, it tends to explode for some reason."

    I'm really liking this show. Didn't figure out that the person he was helping was going to be Billy Marble, so for me it was a nice twist to the ending. Advantage me. :p

    I like the various relationship threads they have going - him with his family, with Livia, his brother, his boss, and of course the person he's helping each week. It'll be interesting to see how his meeting Livia on his travels is going to affect his marriage - I think at some point he'll tell his wife, or she'll find out somehow, and I don't think that'll go over too well.

    I didn't realize he was going to be helping Billy Marble either. It was odd to me that he was suddenly interacting with him though, so I began to think that he was going to be another time traveler or something. ;)

    At any rate, it did surprise me. I also liked how they did it subtly instead of knocking us over the head with it (like having the daughter and Billy get married or something).

    I'm still hooked on this show. I hope it doesn't get canceled!

    The daughter did not help the father but did help Billy Marble. I was thinking she was his donor. Am I missing something. At the end she says "He better love me, I saved his life".

    Plus the other part of the story where his brother is chasing him as the beat cop. He has the twenty dollar bill from the future. I got to think that is very important.

    I was also having problems understanding some of the dialog. It took me a couple of rewinds to hear exactly the citrus comment.

    What I really want to know is: Was the depiction of the airlines in the 70s anywhere close to being accurate?

    According to the Nielsen overnights/fast nationals, Journeyman lost 10% of the households over last week's premiere episode, 10.81% of adults 18-49. And for this episode it also lost 5.41% of households during the second half-hour and 12.9% of adults 18-49. Not really a good sign.

    Of course that also seemed to be about typical for all the freshman Monday night series.

    IIRC, she said "he better call me, I saved his life".

    She was his donor, but they didn't end up together.

    I like the show and think it is interesting how they handle the here one minute, gone the next.
    Questions - did his wife text him to let him know she was going to tell security he had gotten off early? was that just great minds think alike? I know she text the brother. Also, were planes in the what? 70's? late 60's? really like that...smoke and almost everyone seeming high and such? I did love the bit when he was in the planes bathroom and looking at the little bars of soap. Nice.
    And does this mean he can't get out of SF? Or is there a time thing (every 8 hours it happens)

    My problem with the cell phones is that even if he brings an old analog phone with him, he still won't have an account with a carrier, will he? Or will his EIN from himself back then work and he'll be using his own account from the past?

    Also, if he's a big shot reporter at the big SF newspaper, how is it that people don't recognize him? Like Tanna in this episode. When she met him in the present, wouldn't she already know who he was, as I presume his picture runs alongside his column in the paper.

    I thought that was great writing. He is using his old phone from the past, so he is on his old network and the carrier is none the wiser.

    I knew I kept my old crappy brick of a cell phone in a drawer for a reason. ;)

    I like that the onset of the headache signals he's about to travel, too. He can drive now anyway.

    I like this show. I was skeptical of the save a person each week gimmick, but they've made it work twice, so maybe they can pull it off.

    It's strange that they would have a similar twist at the end of both the first and second episodes: he thinks he's saving one person when it's really another.

    The Livia character still annoys me, but her role is fairly minimal so far.

    I agree they have to start addressing the paradox thing. To have a time travel show that ignores that would be ridiculous.

    Also, is he or is he not changing history? If he is changing things, will he start to see changes in the present, or are his deeds so miniscule that they have no real impact on day to day life?

    "Seven Days" went on for 3 years and never once addressed it.
