Oedipus Wrecked

The Man Who Sold the World - Is there anything worse than having your father permanently abandon you and your mother on your fourth birthday? Actually, there's plenty of worse things. And Sam encounters all of them when he reunites with the 1973 version of his old man.

Tuesdays With Mopey

Tuesday's Dead - Sam thinks a hostage crisis is all about him. Which it sort of is, since the 2 p.m. deadline the hostage-taker has set coincides quiet nicely with the 2 p.m. deadline doctors in 2008 have set for when they plan to turn off his life support. Hope Sam's good at multitasking.

Don't Go Chasing Butterflies

Things To Do in New York When You Think You're Dead - Especially not if you happen to be on the roof of a building. Because after you plummet to your death, you may wind up sparking a remarkably subdued riot in which a howling mob demands the scalp of the wrongly accused killer. And that’s going to force Sam to confront questions about race and religion and whether or not he actually kicked the bucket back in 2008.

You Better Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

The Real Adventures of the Unreal Sam Tyler - Still stuck in the middle of 1973, Sam has to investigate a series of robbery-murders at check-cashing stores in New York that may or may not involve personnel from the 125th Precinct, avert his eyes whenever the clothing-free hippie chick next door happens to stroll by, use his jaw to block Gene Hunt's fist, and figure out what he's doing 35 years in the past. Then there's the small matter of that robot that keeps following him around town blasting David Bowie tunes.

That '70s Show

Out Here in the Fields - Life can be funny sometimes. One minute, you're a cop in 2008 New York, chasing down the serial killer who may or may not have your sweetie on ice, and the next, you're hit by a car, hurdled through time and space to 1973 in the past, and… hunting down a serial killer not unlike the one you were chasing 35 years in the future. Only now, the soundtrack is much cooler. Too bad it's all on an eight-track cassette.
