It’s the perfect time to watch “11.22.63” on Hulu.

Right now, a ton of us are stuck at home because of the damn coronavirus, and that means we’re looking for great stuff to watch. (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters)

Well, allow me to throw you a bone here. If you haven’t seen “11.22.63” on Hulu, then you need to start watching immediately.

The series, which is based on a Stephen King book of the same name, focuses on Jake Epping (James Franco). going through a time portal to save President John F. Kennedy’s life.

In the past he falls in love with Sadie Dunhill, who is played by hall of fame smoke Sarah Gadon. Naturally, things go off the rails quickly as Jake learns that when you push the past, the past pushes back harder.

I rewatched “11.22.63” last Christmas while at home with my parents. It’s an emotional rollercoaster, and I can legitimately say the ending is one of the happiest/saddest endings I’ve ever seen in TV history.

I don’t care if you have the hardest soul in the world, the ending will still crack you. It’s impossible to watch without getting a shade misty.

I’m not going to spoil what happens, but the show is about a hell of a lot more than just saving JFK. It’s about finding out what Jake is all about.

I’ve seen a ton of Franco’s work. I like almost all of it, and “11.22.63” might honestly stand out as the best.

I’ve probably seen the series four or five times, and it never gets old.

It has time travel, a great love story, action and a ton of twists and turns. For anybody looking for something great to watch, you can’t go wrong with “11.22.63” on Hulu.
