No Answer: 10 Good TV Plots Left Unresolved By Cancellation

Journeyman

Network: NBC
Run: September - December, 2007

This NBC sci-fi drama, about a newspaperman, Dan Vasser (Kevin McKidd), who suddenly begins jumping back in time, where he's meant to alter people's destinies, was light on serialization but heavy on heart and intrigue. Like many other series, it might have fared better in a different year but, alas, it was a casualty of the 2007 Writer's Strike and did not get the full-year extension its cult audience so desperately desired.

We did receive some answers, or at least solid theories, on why Vasser is called to change destinies via time-travel, as well as offering some kind of closure on his quasi-love triangle between his wife, Katie (Gretchen Egolf), and ex-fiancée/fellow traveler, Livia (Moon Bloodgood). Still, 13 episodes was a cruelly small sample of what this show could offer and we're positive those questions, and others that were left completely unanswered, would have made for many more intriguing episodes.
