Timeless: Season 1 Reviews

January 25, 2019
This is a TV show in an admirably old-fashioned sense of the word, with a tight, action-packed pilot episode that is casually fun and intriguing executed.

Well, Timeless may know when it exists, but it doesn't seem to know why.

On the basis of the first two episodes - which are appealing, despite a certain clunkiness, and smarter than they probably had to be.

Spencer is wonderful as the plucky, brilliant heroine. The premiere's production values have an epic look unusual for weekly television.

It's fun to drop 21st-century people into the deep end of history to see if they can swim, and Timeless producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke seem to get that.

Watching Timeless won't endanger your past or present, most likely, and it might even be a pleasant escape from the history we're currently living.

Rather than zipping through time periods, Timeless lumbers like Victor Frankenstein's creation.

Timeless, a good-natured science-fiction adventure... manages the not inconsequential trick of being educational dumb fun.
October 3, 2016
The economies and conveniences of the production, the not-always-convincing digital backdrops, are in a way welcome, too - TV makes the B pictures of our day, a grade Timeless should wear proudly. We come to be entertained, not to be schooled.

Timeless is not mindless - although perilously close at times - with a twist that might turn out to actually be interesting one of these days.
