Last Rewatch: 2023/02/12 - 2023/06/12

Seven Days (also written as 7 Days) first aired on October 7, 1998 and the last episode aired May 29, 2001 on the UPN. It was cancelled after 3 seasons. Apparently there were some tensions within the cast and Justina Vail, who played Dr. Olga Vukavitch quit before the end of the third season but she did agree to film additional scenes to wrap-up her characters arc. This tension among the cast and the low ratings made UPN decide not to renew 7 Days for a 4th season.


Original cast member Sam Whipple, who played Dr. John Ballard, left the series four episodes into the third season, due to a cancer diagnosis that was eventually fatal. He was replaced by Kevin Christy as young physics prodigy Andrew "Hooter" Owsley for the rest of the season. (wiki)


My last rewatch is from somewhere in 2009/2010. I was looking for quite some time for a DVD release. This took long but suddenly about 3 or 4 years ago, VEI released it as a complete series on DVD. Unfortunately, when you live outside of North America, you cannot purchase this directly via VEI nor via Okay, there are places where you can buy it, for instance, Ebay, but then you must accept much higher prices than you see on Amazon as well as much higher shipping costs. So at this point, 7 Days would cost me about $80 while on Amazon it's $40-$50, with shipping/taxes approximately, (01/02/2021). So for now, a rewatch is currently out of the question. If I ever am in a position that I can purchase it for a reasonable price, I certainly will do.


It was not a perfect show, it has it's flaws, to be honest I cannot go in too much detail because my last watch was so long ago. Between the years 1997-2004 there are shows that really hard to come by. Like 7 Days, Jake 2.0, Special Unit 2 all the same problem, all released by VEI and VEI only at this point.  John Doe hasn't even been released on DVD anywhere, same is for The Visitor but it will be my luck that if these are going to be released, it probably will be via VEI also.


Plot (IMDb): Frank Parker works with a special team of scientists and government officials on project Backstep. Using the Backstep device, Lt. Parker can travel back in time exactly 7 days. Once in the past, he reports in to base using code word "Conundrum" and carries out his mission to alter history for the better.
