That show must be destroyed.
Such was the fate of Journeyman, one of the best new series of 2007. While, on the surface, it looked very derivative of Quantuum Leap, it was actually far more inventive and effective in its brief run. It is unfortunate that the show got cancelled without a longer run opportunity to gain an audience, although credit NBC for giving it more of a chance than the other networks have done with other similarly inventive shows (cf. "Drive", "Day Break", "Love Monkey", "Wonderfalls")
While the show was terminated all too early, it is worth watching the 12 episodes that did air. Intelligent mild-SF has rarely been done better on network television.
