xxeryxx it's an epic..!! I highly recommend this dorama.. (^___^)

miltk the japanes to english dvd set was actual;ly produced and translated in hing kong. thru most of season 1 the translation is good, then it appears they chaged translators and the last 2 episodes, i believe, are unintelligable and names get distorted. it's like the dialogue becomes flowerly and obtuse. so ultimately this became an unsatisfying series. fortunatel;y there was an asian site that ran both seasons in japanese > englisj subtitles and not japanes > chinese > english

junpei mizocendol the JIN series are superb. One of the best in ages. All the four leads are very good and the chemistry is epic

truly a masterpiece

Shingo San I completely agree with the positive comments on this show that others have pointed out. I am a medical historian, and it is an amazing how Jin displays how things once were: you get sick, you die.... then your family dies. Tragic stuff. My comrades and I often wonder "what if", it would have been awesome if a family doctor had a time slip, but I love how they used a neuro surgeon. Brilliant!

Calista I watched most of season 1 while staying in Hawaii last year and I recently saw the 2 hour showing of the 2011 season opener. I love this show (and do not speak Japanese). I can't find that it is shown anywhere in Los Angeles and I hate missing it. Is there any place I can see it from Los Angeles?

miltk well told. there's an upcoming 2nd season and i am hesitant. the 1st ended as it should, which was without resolution. since the whole point of season 1 was jin's trepidation about changing history, then resolving it would be antithetical. besides, does anyone here want to see him go back to the future and leave saki behind,,,of course they could resolve that with a cliche meeting of another "saki" in the future.

chris this drama was amazing!!

Harold Morris Will Jin be released on DVD and in English. I watch it and understand some of it, but not all. Excellent series.

Ken I am a doctor in Hawaii and I just saw this show on KIKU-TV. The show was excellent! I am looking forward to seeing another episode!

Bart i do think i'm not exaggerating this one, but i reckon this drama is the best Jdrama in 2009. closely followed by Shiroi Haru or Buzzer Beat. but its quiet unfair comment cause i've only watched around 10 drama's, of last year released.

the story are extremely good (though the idea of time -traveling are 'recycling idea'), the line up of actors /actresses are quietly unknown (for me) but still showed a really good performance. the script are not great (but i think its due to poor translation). the set, attire, cinematography, etc are phenomenal.

i do hope there'll be SP or follow up season.
