Alan Sepinwall of the Star-Ledger said this about last week's 'Journeyman' in his blog:

Speaking of the FBI agent, how chilling was the moment where he starts ignoring Jack to mutter to himself about how "they" always need currency, implying -- as tachyon expert Dr. Langley suggested a few weeks ago -- there are always powerful men trying to track down and exploit time travelers?

That an FBI agent went rogue to investigate - perhaps at the behest of somebody more powerful - made me think of the private agenda for FBI agent Fox Mulder on 'The X-Files'. It was interesting to see it from the opposite point of view, and see how dangerous it could be. What if that had been Mulder? Would we have changed our allegiances within 'Journeyman'?
And speaking as a televisiologist who believes in Television without borders, and as a fan of TV crossovers... yeah. Wouldn't it be great to see David Duchovny guest star on this show as Fox Mulder? Some "Back To The Future" blending of Dan Vasser into the scenery from an episode of 'The X-Files' set in San Francisco would be needed so that we could see how Mulder has changed in looks from then to now. (I'm thinking of that "Hell Money" episode which guest starred B.D. Wong and Lucy Liu.)

Sadly, this will probably be a moot point too soon, but I'm sure the fanficcers out there will have a field day with the concept.
