Ive always been a fan of Star Trek, there have been highs and lows in the franchise both on the small and big screen but generally it has been pretty consistent regarding entertainment value and keeping my interest. Despite a poor marketing campaign (I thought the initial trailers did nothing to generate interest) and a ropey first couple of episodes, this has turned into one of my favourites from the series. The reason this particular series has generated so much excitement is the complete change in tone. Without revealing any spoilers, this series is a lot darker in tone and its not just the red shirts who are cannon fodder! There are lots of great surprises and twists along the way and Im very much looking forward to seeing how the series develops.
11.22.63 was a well written book that incorporated sci fi, a doomed romance and a decent race against time thriller as one man attempts to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy. Therefore I was really looking forward to this TV adaptation. The series has a whole was ok with the final episode being the highlight of the series. However, the many changes made from the book I felt weren't necessary, I don't know why the character of Bill was promoted to sidekick whereas his role in the novel was an important one but he still remained a minor character. Also I felt the consequences of Hake changing the past weren't explored far enough. In the book there are several resets as Jake realises the consequences of his actions in present day and changes things again but here we only see very briefly at the end what his actions have created. The series as a whole was ok but very much a missed opportunity to create something exceptional.
