[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
Josh Futterman (Josh Hutcherson - Hunger Games ) works at a science lab run by Dr. Stu Camillo (Haley Joel Osment - Sixth Sense ) and Dr. Kronish (Keith David - The Thing ). However, he is just a janitor who lives with his parents Gabe Futterman (Ed Begley Jr. - Veronica Mars ) and Diane Futterman ( Glenne Headly ). His only skill is at playing a First Person Shooter computer game.
In a twist he compares to The Last Starfighter meets Quantum Leap , he is recruited by a couple of time-travellers named Tiger ( Eliza Coupe ) and Wolf (Derek Wilson - Preacher ). They tell him he is the saviour of mankind, and he must accompany them on a mission back in time to save the world.
Josh may not have combat skills, but his many years of Scif-Fi fandom have given him the skills to survive at time-travel. In comparison, his new friends may be combat experts but they have no idea about remaining low-key or not changing the timeline. Rather than have him try to avoid killing his own grandfather, they test his combat skills by creating a deliberate confrontation!
Josh Futterman (Josh Hutcherson - Hunger Games ), Tiger ( Eliza Coupe ) and Wolf (Derek Wilson - Preacher ) visit the year 1969. They must cock-block a man in order to stop him becoming the scientist who destroys the human race.
The three white protagonists are refused entry to the party because it is in a members-only Frat-house. Josh sneaks in disguised as an astronaut.
We get a few reminders that things were very different fifty years ago. This was an era when people thought Bill Cosby was funny and Spanish Fly - an aphrodisiac - was a good thing. The local cops refuse to protect the African-American college fraternity from abuse, but they accept bribes from the local biker gang. This ends badly for them because Tiger and Wolf are holding the perimeter.
Josh Futterman (Josh Hutcherson - Hunger Games ) returns home, and discovers that he changed things on his visit to the year 1969. The Apple Corporation is now Black Apple (AKA Blapple), and his father has a shotgun in case Puerto Ricans come around again.
Tiger ( Eliza Coupe ) and Wolf (Derek Wilson - Preacher ) decide to de-stress by having sex in Josh's room. Poor old Josh had wanted her as his love interest, but he seems to have completely forgotten that idea.
Dr. Stu Camillo (Haley Joel Osment - Sixth Sense ) has usurped the lab from Dr. Kronish (Keith David - The Thing ). Tiger and Wolf still insist on killing Kronish. Josh is ambivalent about the whole idea. Nobody realises that Camillo is far more likely to be the villain than the nice friendly Kronish.
