While it doesn't avoid all time travel theme clichés, this mashup of Varley's Millennium and Quantum Leap provides some unique thrills. The team traveling back from a terrible future sends their souls into bodies seconds away from their recorded death. Unusually, the team members still have to cope with the lives they've overtaken.( Five members in the team )
The see-saw between the terrifying events they seek to short-circuit through super-hero methods and the mundanities of baby-sitting and football practice deflates the pomposity attendant on most SF tv.
