80s TV series question

Postby thecinemasnob on Mon Feb 08, 2010 7:44 pm

In the 80s there was a short lived television series that in the first 5 episodes dealt with a man who comes back from the future who helps out his family in the present time. After viewer complaints about this time travel story line, the man from the future was completely written out of the show, focusing more on the family, and the title of the series was even changed. Does anybody out there remember what this was called or who was in it?

Ain't got a clue, but give us much more information on it if you can, if that don't ring bells for us then maybe we might know who can.

have you tried an IMDB keyword search? Sometimes they can be helpful. Sometimes.

Never heard of it, and it doesn't appear to be in the Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction (which has everything in it).

Was it a US show or from somewhere else?

No offense, but I'm beginning to think this is a false memory. They have made massive changes to television programs' premises in the past, but I don't think they could do what you remember in the course of five episodes. It takes longer than that to get a script through the network.

Second Chance
Charles Russell dies, but since he is too good for hell and too bad for heaven, he is given the opportunity to go back to 1987 to assist his younger self, Chazz, in making better decisions at critical junctures in his life in order to (hopefully) get into heaven.
