    I’m really high right now....
    and what I gathered from this is that happiness and being in the moment with positive energy and love can change the follow/state of time + destiny it’s self.
    And a hero will risk his life and perhaps die being a HERO no matter what happens because that’s there destiny.

    The Groundhog Day concept, been done once or twice in movies and it appears in almost every sci fi TV series since 2000. I must admit though that this one was very well done. Very entertaining even with the truly sad ending.

    If he knew they would be late why order apple juice at all? And the battery wasn't dead because the car clearly turned over. If the battery was dead it would only click click click.. I've only watch 5 minutes but I am stopping now. On to the next story,

    If I was him i would totally reverse time infinite times spending time and talking about random stuff with my brother until im satisfied even if it's only for a few minutes after he goes to try to stop the fire.
    It's fucking heartbreaking that you'll know something bad will happen to someone you love and you can't do anything to prevent it...😭

    "Your car won't start the battery is dead." * Opens door and the dome light comes on, turns key and engine cranks over* Are writers ever going to stop writing stupid lines assuming they know something technical without even taking the time to check with a professional?.

    Human pilot: "We look for things. Things to make us go. We need help."
    Pilot finds Kanamit, directs them to Earth.
    Kudos if you recognize the two references.
