Is Anybody Watching 11.22.63 – The Kill Floor

Sometimes the past doesn’t want to be changed!

School teacher Jake Epping, (James Franco), travels back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, thinking that the world would have been a better place had Kennedy not been killed.  However, he finds that easier said than done due to a myriad of obstacles and misfortunes, most notably, the past itself. Jake quickly learns that the past pushes back against being changed.

Episode 2 of 11.22.63 – The Kill Floor

Jake’s first attempt to change time seems to have been unsuccessful, so he decides there is one thing he can change.
