Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

Hindsight

40-something year old blond falls asleep the night before her 2nd wedding, only to wake up 20 years in the past (1995) on the day of her first wedding.

Sixty minute drama on VH1 about feelings.

Girl feelings.

Seriously she's traveled through time (or our heroine is having a nervous breakdown, or possibly a dream during an aneurism? Which more screams of Life on Mars than a master planner at work.) and all "Becca" can think about is if she should marry the same disastrous man again, or if she can use all her privileged future foreknowledge to CHANGE HIM so that this time around, they do have a perfect marriage.



I've seen all of Ally McBeal 16 times, so I have like a masters degree in girl programming, but once you add an element of the Supernatural into all that girl-stew, I am in hog heaven.

It's good.

Nothing Spectacular, but good. In comparison, when Felicty traveled through time from season 5 to season one to stop herself from cutting her hair (Yes that really happened. Abrams made Felicity, then Lost, and then Star Trek.) the number of times Felicity said "break the space time continuum" during that story arc was cripplingly hilarious.

Where was I?

I liked it, did you?

So, they made a series out of Peggy Sue Got Married. I actually did catch a lot of it (by accident, actually), but the main character's personality grated on me a bit. Not my kind of person.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

I appreciated that she chose her best friend (who seems pretty fun) over any of the guys (for now) and the thing she wants most to do is smoke a cigarette in a bar. Ah, the little things...

Weird seeing the Seeker pop up as the first hubby.

My mom loves that show. I tried it once. It wasn't for me.

Hope this isn't what they turned Being Erica into, because it does sound familiar from the titles being thrown around from awhile back.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

Being Erica, which was just fantastic, is about a woman who zips back and forth from now to the past (or sometimes the future), and back again. Hindsight is more like OUtlander when the hero is stuck in a niche of history which they cannot extricate themselves from. Of course surviving 18th century Scotland is a little more badass than repeating New York in the 90s.

Matthew Perry was in an identically themed sitcom in the 80s called Second Chance. His old man self from around about now was sent all the way back to 1989 to help Matthew not grow up to be such a bastard. I saw the pilot on Youtube. It was awful.

Peggy Sue got Married is a really good example of what happened in the pilot.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

Right, but I had seen a connection between the two somewhere, and now I realize it's because Highsight is from the same writer/producer as Being Erica. Awhile back, there was speculation as to wether this was their American version of the show. I think it was even mentioned in a thread here.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

As others have said from the description the first thing that popped into my head this sounds an awful lot like the film Peggy Sue Got Married

Unfortunately there's no Nick Cage speaking in that ridiculous voice.

Is the show set in New York? I know it's filmed in Georgia and she was wearing a Michigan hoodie, but I didn't catch the setting from the pilot.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

Google, google...

That’s main character Becca narrating the new VH1 drama “Hindsight” debuting Wednesday, January 7, shot in Atlanta and fictionally based in New York City.
They obviously want to remake new 1st season episodes of Friends while ignoring the last 20 years of history, tragedy and innovation. Or at least hat's what I thought when I was misinformed that this was a 22 minute sitcom.

Yes, I was taking about Hindsight 8 months ago in the Outlander thread, and I believe at the time that google and I came to the conclusion that Hindsight is not made by the same people as Being Erica, but an early press release said that Hindsight was "like" Being Erica, and then a few people misinterpreted that statement to mean that there was a stronger connection between the two programs, and said as much online.

Being Erica and Hindsight are made in different countries for frakks sake.

Yeah, this definitely needs Nic Cage talking like he's overly congested.

My first thought was Peggy Sue Got Married. I remembered having to ask my Mom why people shouldn't eat the red M&Ms - and how there even *were* red M&Ms.

There's definitely a very strong Being Erica vibe going on. Becca is Erica. Xavier is Doctor Tom, heck he even recite quotes.

Yes, that would likely be where I first saw it. Still, for it to be by the same producers/writers and have many similarities? And the description itself sounds a lot like Being Erica. Coincidence? I don't think so, although that general premise has obviously gone in a different direction from Erica's. Also if you look online, many others are making direct comparisons.

Being Erica and Hindsight are made in different countries for frakks sake.
*shrug* The line is blurred a lot these days. It's obvious to me the producer/writers used what they were familiar with, location notwithstanding.

Re: Hindsight... Timetravel for Girls?

You might have misread me because I am rarely ever very clear.

I'll try harder.



I may be wrong, but these two projects are completely unrelated as far as human resources go that the internet is aware of.
