* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Jake hits [[spoiler: Johnny]] in the head with a fire poker, driving the spike clean through his skull. Perhaps as a result of the amateur lobotomy, [[spoiler: Johnny]] just stares at him blankly, looking a bit confused. [[spoiler: Then Sadie, to everyone's immense relief, blows Johnny away with the handgun he dropped.]]

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: In the TV series, [[spoiler: The Guardians never explain that the timeline changes are damaging reality, and Harry only offers the briefest of explanations when Jake meets him in the BadFuture. The viewer is left with the impression that Kennedy just sucked ''that badly.'']]


Added DiffLines:

** In the series, the past throws up hallucinations to confuse and disorient Jake. In the Book Depository, you can see the phrase [[Literature/TheShining "REDRUM"]] spraypainted on a wall and in [[spoiler: the BadFuture, you can see "[[Literature/TheStand Captain Trips]]" painted in the background.]]

** In the series, [[spoiler: Sadie not only happens to be visiting Lisbon on the exact day the portal drops you off, but she is actually passing in a car at the exact moment.]]

* DumbassHasAPoint: In the series, Bill asks a number of good questions that Jake doesn't have answers for.


Added DiffLines:

* ViewersAreGeniuses: In the TV version of [[spoiler: the BadFuture, Harry mentions that George Wallace had become president, and Jake reacts with horror. While Wallace was a transformative political figure in the US, he did not appear and wasn't directly referenced in the series. He had been dead for nearly twenty years and off the national stage for nearly forty by the time the show was aired, so they assume a good deal of knowledge about US political history.]]

** Al wants to prevent the Kennedy assassination, but he only feels 95% sure that Lee Harvey Oswald is the real killer and acted alone, so he (and later, Jake) spends five years in the past attempting to make sure. Why not just track down and kill Oswald right away, head back through the portal, and spend five minutes on the Internet checking to see if Kennedy was still killed? You can always just hit the ResetButton and try again if you got it wrong. [[note]]It's worth noting that even doing this Al or Jake would still have to wait around a while, as Oswald was on a military base in Japan at 1958 where the time portal came out.[[/note]]

* EvolvingCredits: After going unchanged for most of the series, the opening for the final episode changes things up. [[spoiler: Given its rather foreboding imagery, such as the drooping [[StringTheory red strings,]] the diner being on fire, and the overturned car, it's an early tell that something has GoneHorriblyWrong.]]

** In the opening to the second-to-last episode, the news paper headline also changes from "Kennedy Killed" to "Walker Lives!" This change is reversed again in the last episode.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds [[spoiler: Jake becomes this briefly after seeing the BadFuture, even calling himself the Jimla, in order to save Sadie despite knowing he needs the reset to be total, saying he doesn't care what happens. Eventually the mental anguish of even causing harm by saving her forces him to reset the past completely.]]
