Storyline

Timeless tells the story of a mysterious criminal who steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. The only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, a soldier and a history professor, who must use the machine's prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it's too late? Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

A 2016 lawsuit claims that the series was plagiarized from The Ministry of Time (2015), a Spanish series about (in the lawsuit's words) "the adventures of a three-person government team (consisting of one woman and two men) travelling through time to thwart undesired changes to past events". At one point, the creators were courting Sony to make a US version. NBC and Sony argued that this premise is sufficiently generic that no individual can claim ownership, and that otherwise the shows are entirely different. The case was settled out of court in May 2017. See more »

Entertaining show despite technical flaws
1 December 2016 | by lynndicerboSee all my reviews

Sorry, folks, but I watch TV to be entertained. Particularly when I am viewing Sci-Fi shows, I suspend reality and accept certain premises that may be technically flawed. By doing so, I'm not over-analyzing every nuance trying to figure out if it's consistent with current scientific knowledge.

With that said, I am apparently one of the few (along with my husband) who truly likes Timeless. Each week I look forward to the historical period in history where the characters will go. Besides that, there is the underlying story of Flynn-- who he is, why he's so protective of Abigail Spencer, what his true motives are (good? evil?) as well as who or what Rittenhouse is and why it wants to change the course of history.

I genuinely hope NBC gives this show a chance. There hasn't been a good time travel show for a while (I remember watching Time Tunnel as a kid!) Perhaps there's room to improve Timeless, and I think a lot of successful shows start out somewhat shaky, but I'm already a fan.
