I liked this. I think that it was too much to try and maintain a series with a premise like this. It wouldn’t sustain. I do have a few questions though. Mainly about the fates of Stan, Frank and Gordo Sr. Also, Moseby. I liked him.

The car pool needs to see his car and the deacon is in custody for robbery. The deacon knows that Raimy knows. They figure out he is blaming Megan since he hasn’t killed her yet.

This was a good episode for Frank. He’s prepping and resolved to do what he has to. Raimy is terrible. I feel bad about what she did to Moseby, getting his hopes up and all. And Satch sucks.

Julie and young Raimy watch tv together. Frank leaves her a baseball glove with a note. Adult Raimy gets home to find Daniel waiting on her porch. She kisses him. At the tipline, they are closing up shop and there is a sheet logging Megan’s call.

I really like this show. I don’t love it but I really like it. I think it works best when it is a family drama, that also has procedural and time travel elements to it. I don’t care about Moreno being dirty or what Frank’s crew from when he was undercover is up to now. I like the strange buddy cop through the ham radio situation between Frank and Raimy and I’m invested in the Frank and Julie drama. I’m also interested in Raimy’s personal life. The goings on at the station don’t hold my attention nearly as much.
