Critic Reviews for Time After Time Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (17)

Timeworn, mistimed, untimely.

Mar 2, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Top Critic

Based on the 1979 novel and cult movie starring Malcolm MacDowell and Mary Steenburgen, Time After Time is sexed-up and a bit dumbed-down but not unenjoyable.

Mar 6, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Time After Time may well have trouble sustaining itself, given all of the near misses and constant escapes in just the first two episodes.

Top Critic

It's honestly admirable.

Mar 5, 2017 | Full Review…

I don't expect Time After Time to ever solve that final mystery, but there's enough intrigue to some of the time travel-related ones for me to keep watching.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Enough... to merit a look, with the disclaimer that the future in terms of their long-term appeal looks extremely murky.

Top Critic

Time After Time has promising ideas and some solid chemistry between various characters, but it's only scraping the surface. The upshot is the foundation is stable and the cast is solid.

Mar 3, 2017 | Full Review…

It's unclear if the series will rise above a constant cat-and-mouse game between Wells and Jack, something that seems like it could get old quick.

Mar 3, 2017 | Full Review…

This plot and these characters were enough to sustain a book and feature film, but feel too thin here to sustain a series-long arc.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The cast is mostly endearing and the premise infuses everything with a quirky charm, but for a serial killer cat-and-mouse show Time After Time is seriously lacking in the tension department.

Mar 2, 2017 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Time After Time combines sexy with sci-fi.

Mar 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Like all time-travel shows, paradoxes can emerge like sinkholes. Still, the cast works so much charm, they must be exhausted by the end of the day.

    Really good show! Sad ABC Canceled it. Just found the entire series ALL 12 episodes, 6 which were unaired on CWseed app for FREE. If you haven't seen this show go check it out! The ending is upsetting seeing as it was Canceled but worth the watch. ABC is always good about Canceling decent shows before they give them a chance, boo!

    The thumbnail from the Season 1 Trailer shows Freddie Stroma's acting range. World's richest woman should have the most secure building in the world yet people kept breaking in. FBI seem to be very inept. Totally deserved to be cancelled. Watched the 12 episodes just to confirm how crap this was.

    Production quality seems high but the plot is very weak. Weak points being: * The forced love story * The logic of how the time machine works (does it freeze and speed up time or does it jump in spacetime...?) * Too many sideplots going on without any idea of what they are about. It's boring if the viewer can't even suspect what might happen. * Cat and mouse game with the Ripper that is just driven by idiot plot. Seriously how many times did they leave him escape out of stupidity?!

    I am very upset ABC canceled " Time After Time" I Love This show and I love the characters. Great storyline..... Please someone'give it another chance.....I think it would do Good in summer. How can I see the rest of the episodes???? I won't watch ABC again for taking this away. I hope Match game slips on its arse it was borring and stupid.....

    It kinda surprised me ABC released it when glitches like actors positioning marks are visible- its editing 101 and I didn't expect it from a company like ABC. As for the show itself: at times the dialogues made me cringe a bit, female lead character is stupid and there are a lot of goofs if you have some feminist eye in you (i.e she owns a gun- but its 'a gift from daddy"- yet *going with HG* to find Jack she gives him the gun even though he hates those. In a fight scene between the two she just standing there crying and doing nothing). I don't like this show... Pass.

    Excellent show with and interesting twist on H.G. Well's Time Machine.
  • Mar 12, 2017
    WATCHABLE and will keep you entertained. Many ideas from other shows mixed up in the bundle, but with a 'fresh' perspectve. My worry for the show is how it can keep going at the lightning pace, as the first two shows were really good. Let's hope the writers have thought about this, as there are many fickle beings going to be exxpecting every show to have that 'wow' feeling.
  • Mar 07, 2017
    There was so much potential, and it is basically a CW show. First the actors are far too young. Clearly this is about them jumping into bed in later episodes. The characters seem to have no basic common sense, and can not work around simple problems. There are huge problems in the development of the characters that just do not make sense. This show is a mess. Its a shame, because it could have been so so so much better.
  • Mar 06, 2017
    Disappointing portrayal of Jack the Ripper as unintelligent and careless. With plenty of other time travel series out, this doesn't stand out.
  • Mar 06, 2017
    Love it cannot be live how great it is. There is no show like this on reply right now, awesome work lads!!
