Critic Reviews for Timeless Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

The second season is leaner, smarter, and funnier, its stories more focused on people and moments than scale and scope.

May 23, 2018 | Full Review…

"Timeless" is like old-fashioned TV with a modern sense of momentum and wit.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

If you haven't seen the season finale of Timeless yet, go back in time to make sure your parents fall in love and then come back after you've seen it.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The Time Team is officially back, and the premiere episode teases a sophomore season that's tighter, smarter, and still a hell of a lot of fun.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's not just back. It's here with more spirit and energy and focus, displaying a willingness to reset the status quo without leaving the events of the first season in the dust.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

When I say Timeless is playing like it has nothing to lose, I'm talking about the show's narrative as well as its meta-narrative.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Like any good story reveling in its rise from the ashes moment, the episode picked up right where we left off last year only to blow up the entire premise of series with one well-placed bomb.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

In a little stroke of genius, the writers use the fact that the real Harriet Tubman did experience "visions" to tie into Jiya's storyline.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While Season 1 was all about establishing our heroes, it appears that the big initiative in Season 2 was to work on spicing up the villains and playing up their own difficulties with messing with time.

Mar 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The show appears to have kept the ingredients that work, such as the chemistry between characters and the historical hijinx, and switched up the elements that needed tweaking.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Let's just blow it and start over! That's what literally happened... And you know what? The series is actually more coherent now.

Mar 11, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Overall, the series has returned with a much better understanding of where its strengths and weaknesses are, and how to bring out the former as much as possible.

Audience Reviews for Timeless: Season 2

  • Feb 13, 2020
    This season has much more identity politics in each single episode than in the whole season 1. Obviously, tons of strong independent women, all whites are bad etc etc. The good guys have no problems with innocents killed in the crossfire, but hesitate before shooting important bad guys. Extremely disappointing, compared to a stellar season 1.
  • Sep 18, 2019
    More holes in the story than that thing you use after cooking pasta. The "flirting" between the characters seems to be written by a 40 year old virgin. Seriously! No adult flirt in such an awkward and unnatural way! 3 stars just for the cool historical scenes. places, outfits and vehicles look amazing and it gives the viewer a glims into the past.
  • Aug 07, 2019
    Yeah , Amazing serie
  • Mar 18, 2019
    I love that season 2 goes into a different direction than season 1 and changes up who's an ally or enemy
  • Feb 06, 2019
    Great series especially the second season - good plot very good actors -so much suspense which is great - very few problems #savetimeless
  • Jan 05, 2019
    Season 2 of Timeless was the perfect addition to season 1. I love every episode in both seasons, easily the best show I have EVER seen! If you have not seen this show you need to, its beathtaking!
  • Jan 05, 2019
    One of the best shows on TV today. If you like history (and even if you don’t), you’ll love this show. Well-written and acted. Amazing cast and storyline that pulls in viewers and leaves them wanting more. #SaveTimeless
  • Jan 05, 2019
    Waited for the second season! What a cliffhanger we were left with on Season 1 - Let's go ClockBlockers - where to next?! Timeless is one of those shows that keeps you on the edge of your seat - I am so sad this is the last season - It's so well written, and our cast members are the best - each one in their own right -
  • Jan 05, 2019
    Even better than the 1st season! This show has been recommended by The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Smithsonian Magazine and more. Ages 8 to 80 can watch together and everyone will be thoroughly entertained.
  • Jan 04, 2019
    Season 2 takes off right where one left off. There may be less episodes but the writers did an amazing job. I ended up looking into the historical figures mentioned. Absolutely amazing.
