  • Great Episode

    I personally loved this episode!!!! It was interesting for Logan to have to deal with first a rouge Timecop then a world where he was the most wanted Time Criminal. That was a cool touch having him treated like the bad guy instead of the hero. Few shows that include Time Travel in it have an alternate reality where the hero is the villan. In Charmed they had an alternate reality where a bunch of villans were still alive and one of the heros was dead but that was because a major invincible villan changed time. That ended when he was vanquished because he wasn't invincible in that reality but this is the first show I've seen where the hero ended up in a reality where he was a villan. I liked how Logan had to fight to get people to belive him and ultimatly succeded.moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Matuzek: He's always been unorthodox.
      Easter: Unorthodox is wearing white after Labor Day or mixing chicken with fish. Usher's dangerous.

    • Matuzek: Where the hell did he get his information?
      Easter: Either he's a card-carrying member of the Psychic Friends Network or we have a serious security breach.

    • Hemmings: Where do you get your information? Is there some TEC bookstore I don't know about?

    • Easter: Jack Logan a timecop. What a sad, pathetic world that would be to live in.

    • Matuzek: (about Usher) The man gets the job done.
      Easter: Yeah, well, a lot of people get the job done. Usually they go under more common names. You know, like, say, "Dictator."
      Matuzek: Don't you think you're being a little dramatic?
      Easter: If I see a marble bust, I'm walking.

    • Young Ripps: What's with the Jean-Luc Picard outfit? Are you some sort of spook?
      Logan: Yeah, that's exactly what I am. And if you don't start giving me answers, I'm going to beam you to the moon!

    • Hemmings: (explaining not being asked to the prom) I was deemed TSNA. "Too smart, no action."
      Logan: Heh. What are those guys doing today?

    • Logan: We bust our butts trying to be the Tiffany's of time travel while our bosses are hellbent on turning this into a five and dime.

    • Easter: Cultural anthropology, Logan. We mark time by our memories. I use movies as my 20th century tickle file.

    • Logan: The morning I got out of jail, my father told me that no son of his was going to turn out to be a juvenile delinquent. So I reminded him I wasn't his son. The next day, he adopted me.

    • Logan: My dad and I had a very interesting relationship. I'd do whatever I could to tick him off, he'd try and find new ways to punish me.
