11.22.63 wrapped things up with ‘The Day In Question’ and it was everything I didn’t know I needed in my life. Seriously though, this was a beautiful finale and quite frankly, a lot of other shows could learn a thing or two from 11.22.63. Everything was wrapped up perfectly, no question was left unanswered and the ending hopefully had you smiling. I know I was (and with tears in my eyes).
Surprisingly, our main plot was wrapped up rather quickly with Jake and Sadie preventing Oswald from shooting JFK. An average show probably would have spent the entire finale focusing on the day in question but 11.22.63 had a lot more story to tell. I was very happy to see Jake return to the present and, with Sadie not making it out of the shootout alive, Jake’s decision to return was a straightforward one. Even more surprising, however, was the present he returned to. After preventing the JFK assassination, I thought for sure the world would be a much better place but instead it was a dark wasteland. It goes to show you that it would be 100% impossible to know what effect changing the past would have on the future and will hopefully teach future time travelers a very valuable lesson. Also, my apologies to Jake because he should have NEVER listened to Al in the first place.
I am going to deeply miss this show. It was way too short and I really hope Hulu decides to go the anthology route and bring this back for another season. The possibilities are endless and I have compiled a list of possibilities for future seasons at the end of this review. Personally, I think this series has the perfect recipe to become an anthology where each season would focus on a new time period and event. Admit it, this would be fucking cool! Let’s just all hope the execs over at Hulu are reading this and plan on getting Mikey involved in the storytelling (and then I woke up from my dream).
Now I know we didn’t ask for this room or this music but since we’re here, let’s DANCE and enjoy the review, fellow time travelers.
