11.22.63

The latest tv series I'm trying out is 11.22.63 ...

an American science fiction thriller miniseries based on the book 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and consisting of eight episodes.The series is executive-produced by J. J. Abrams, King, Bridget Carpenter and Bryan Burk, and produced by James Franco, who also has the main role.

The basic plot ... a man travels back in time to 1960 in order to discover who killed JFK and to save that president's life, all to make the world in the present a better place. I do like it so far, though it's pretty dark and grim. It kind of reminds me of King's novel/movie, The Dead Zone (I posted about that here), in which Christopher Walken's character asks the question of whether one should kill Hitler if they could go back in time.

Here's a review of the show in The Washington Post ... What Hulu’s absorbing ‘11/22/63’ tells us of the harm of dwelling in the past

And here's a trailer ...
