The James Franco character, our time traveler, decides to remain in the past, he likes it that much. He was a teacher and now he's got a job as a teacher in a small fictional town in between Dallas and Fort Worth where the principal's main concern seems to be keeping Catcher in the Rye out of the school library.
The librarian, (Sarah Gadon) who is probably the main reason our protagonist wants to remain in the past, is unbelievable. Although she's not a true blond, neither was Marilyn Monroe, and she's got Marilyn Monroe beat by more than a nose.
I haven't gotten to the climax of the story because I've only seen 3 episodes out of 8. Our protagonist visited Jack Ruby's establishment, and Ruby vigorously proclaimed his love for Jack Kennedy to a total stranger, seemingly setting up an alibi for why he had to kill Lee Harvey Oswald. I don't know if this story will touch on taboo aspects of the assassination, questions which were never addressed, as far as I know. Such as did Jack Ruby have a role in the killing of Kennedy? Were the Dallas Police not only negligent but complicit in the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.
This series is only 8 episodes long so there is a limit to the depth of questions.
I've only watched 3 episodes so far.
