!!Movie:

* AdaptationDisplacement: The franchise is apparently based on a comic written by future ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' scribe Mark Verheiden - who knew?
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Ricky looking at porn on the virtual reality set. All for fanservice, not important to the plot at all.
* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptPolitician U.S. Senator]] Aaron [[BigBad McComb]] dreams of becoming a plutocratic despot. He's quick to abuse time travel for his own purposes, initially using it for [[CompoundInterestTimeTravelGambit financial interest schemes]]. He threatens his agents with [[RetGone erasing them]] and [[IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure their entire families]] from existence, forcing them to kill themselves if the time agency tracks them down. He shoots one of his old business partners to give his past self the guy's tech company and rewrites history so that he completely controls time travel. He blackmails a time agent to become his [[TheMole mole]] against [[TheHero Agent Jack Walker]] by again threatening to erase her family, then kills her anyway to tie up all loose ends and [[FrameUp frames Walker]] when he goes back to save her. After having arranged several failed hits on Walker directly, he sends his goons back in the past to murder the younger Walker and his wife by blowing them both up in their home.
* HilariousInHindsight: Senator [=McComb=] is running for President in 2004. He outright states that it'll be like the Reagan years again, the wealthiest 10% will flourish, the rest can flee to Mexico if they want. In 2004 Ron Silver (who played [=McComb=]) gave a speech at the Republican National Convention campaigning for George W. Bush.
* ParanoiaFuel: Knives can fly out of time vortices without warning

!!TV Series:

* InformedWrongness: The [[StrawLoser tech guy]] is portrayed this way. In one episode, he chronically suggests that they not time jump right away and let him tinker with the time machine to figure out why it's acting weird, and is always dismissed out of hand for not doing things "the police way". And then the time machine screws up ''again''. This happens several times.
