time warped into another reality.
What's a typical day in the life of a Timecop?
Well, according to a press release for the show:

witnessing JFK's assassination, and the evening
coming back home to the year 2007. It's all in a
day's work for the Timecops, who police the time
continuum for criminals looking to change the
course of history. Your assignments are not
always clear, and if you don't get your suspect,
or if you leave something unfinished, the
consequences can be severe."

history. We're not allowed to change history"
-- Jack Logan
