Trivia

The idea of this story was first mentioned in another Stephen King TV show The Langoliers (1995) when one of the passengers was talking about how time is created and how it is used. See more »

Goofs

The main premise of the show is that the protagonists don't know for sure that Oswald was the lone gunman hence the long stakeout. However, given that going back 'resets' everything the quickest way to ascertain Oswald's involvement would be to shoot Oswald, go back to 2016 and see if Kennedy survived. If he was still assassinated then going back again would 'undo' Oswald's unnecessary death and Jake could concentrate on finding the real assassin.

But Oswald only returns to the US in 62. So it will always take at least 2 years to complete the test. See more »

True to the Book, Very Promising
16 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

James Franco exercises his full acting range in this adaptation of Stephen King's taut, time-travel thriller. Early on, it's very true to the plot, style, and tone of King's book, so fans of the novel should be pleased if it continues in the same way. At the same time, those unfamiliar with the book are thrown into an engaging world with its own quirks and rules. Franco navigates moments of surprising pathos and surprising humor with ease, pulling the viewer into Epping's experiences and showing us his thoughts and feelings, even when dialogue is sparse.

11.22.63 is intelligent, thoughtful television that belongs in the current streamed-TV and specialized-content landscape that contains shows like The Man in the High Castle, Fargo, and the (dearly-departed) Hannibal. It's not an easy show to watch when you're half asleep or cleaning the house. If you're willing to give it your full attention, however, it's more than worth the time.
