SFX’s Face­book fol­low­ers give their ver­dict on the time travel re­boot

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - View screen -

I switched off af­ter the first episode I’m afraid. It just lacked that spark of odd­ness and orig­i­nal­ity the film had.

Mark An­der­son

I saw the first episode and can­not bring my­self to watch any more. There are so many TV shows and films about time travel that it has to have some­thing

spe­cial to stand out. I just didn’t get that hooked from the off.

Mark Davies

En­joy­able but can’t help com­par­ing with the orig­i­nal movie which is far bet­ter. The leads are not Bruce Wil­lis or Brad Pitt for a start.

Robert Wil­liam Gra­ham

It’s a very dif­fer­ent an­i­mal to the film. I’ve not spot­ted a par­tic­u­larly duff per­for­mance yet so that’s good. Although no one has no­ticed that ev­ery­thing done in the past is just ful­fill­ing the fu­ture they al­ready know. I guess they haven’t watched enough TV!

Tom Gray

I’m quite en­joy­ing it. Well acted, de­cent char­ac­ters and nicely plot­ted so far – I think they’re de­ploy­ing Cole’s jump­ing around in time nicely. It’s done a good job of es­tab­lish­ing it­self as its own thing with its own iden­tity and I’m glad I don’t find my­self con­stantly com­par­ing it to the film. In fact, I don’t ever re­ally think about the film at all when I watch it.

Ed Prior

I love it. The way the story keeps mov­ing makes me long for each new episode. Hen­rik An­der­s­son

Started to lose in­ter­est af­ter six episodes. Same hap­pened with

Helix but I might just stick this one out. Stephen Doyle Still not sure. Tim Up­ton Ter­ri­ble show. Mauri­cio Enrique Núñez
