NYPD detective Sam Tyler finds himself walking both sides of the line between delusion and reality, when he is suddenly hurtled back in time to 1973 after being struck in an 2008 car accident.

A decorated Vietnam War vet is beaten to death; a Puerto Rican man is accused of throwing a black girl off the roof of a building; a hostage situation takes place at the psychiatric ward of a hospital; a bank robbery involving the Russian mob starts a turf war; a councilman is shot and killed in the station causing it to go on lockdown.

The British version was light years ahead of this one in quality.

I enjoyed this "Time Travel/Coma" series very much. Far better than I expected from the other reviews. I am taking the advice from other viewers and purchasing the UK version from Amazon. If it's as good as, or better than the American version I will be very happy. Either way this version was very good. Although it was not obvious that the final four episodes were on the special features disc. I'm glad I didn't return the DVD's to the library until I checked out the fourth disc, as the ending was TOTALLY BRILLIANT and brought everything together so that it all made sense, even "Windy".

Not to bad---good performance.

It was O.K for a home movie. I was entertained. But it was NOT worth a long library wait or the
price to rent from a Red Box.

I recommend that you avoid the US version of this show, and seek out the far-superior original BBC series. You'll be glad you did.
