Timeless ...it had the potential as another exciting TV series into the realm of Time Travel
4 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Timeless is a fabulous concept reduced to absurdity. The stereotypical unnecessary humor; uninteresting and unnecessary personal lives of the lead characters; quick one-liners rattled off so fast in dialogue that the viewer can't even understand what they are saying; implementation of the Rittenhouse conspiracy which is nothing more than a convoluted Bilderberg method of trying to add subplots because it is easier for the writers as opposed to explaining theory of time travel and the intricacies of it. Quite frankly, this series had great potential but the writing is deplorable as are the actors. I am starting to laugh at the constant facial expression of the Rufus character. His absurd expressions as if he is always in pain is deplorable. Timeless is a soap opera using time travel as a front. If you want to watch a terrific time travel series, watch ABC's 1966 series Time Tunnel. Despite its lack of technical accuracy, it was played and written totally seriously with understandable dialogue, focus on how and why the Time Tunnel was created, interesting explanations of time travel, good story line, no unnecessary personal details about the lead characters lives; great music, and focus only on the story line of the time, place, and events. Time Tunnel was quite intriguing to say the least. It represented the fabulous writers of the 1960's TV vs today's writers and their pseudo- adage, "if you can't convince em' confuse em'." - Ed Shifres

-------------------------------------------------------- Original review:

Like any Time Travel TV or film concepts, it is a very difficult subject to pull off successfully because the toughest challenge is being believable. Timeless is interesting and effective in the genre primarily because the concept of the heroes [ a historian, scientist, and soldier) vs the villain ( effectively and seriously played by Goran Visnjic) trying to change history via a chase through time is exciting. We all know the settings and historical events (i.e. Hindenburg, Lincoln Assassination, etc.) so there is no lack of historical fascination. Just the usual problem for time travel writers as they never can explain the physics as to how the time machine works or how they can send the machines to a specific time and place and return safely to the present time. Writers rely more on special effects and a youthful audience, many of who have limited patience for explanations anyway. What I found laughable was how quick the heroes just accepted and ended up in the past without the shock and awe anyone would sensibly and naturally have if actually able to visit a place in the past encompassed by a historical event. Of course a one hour drama doesn't have the "time" to focus on said emotions. In addition, the proverbial yet unnecessary humor in today's supposed serious dramas is now stereotypical.

While I do like Timeless and will continue to watch the series, I'd like the writers to focus on writing these dramas without the unnecessary character cockiness, jokes, and rattled off one-liners acting so calm and unconcerned as if they were about to spend the day at the beach. Goran Visnjic's portrayal of villain Garcia Flynn is effective because he plays his role seriously, as he seems to do in all his roles. The actors who play the historian, scientist, and soldier should play their roles the same serious and focused way. Afterall, we are talking about possibly changing history.

Take a look at the ABC-TV Time Tunnel series of the 1960s. While it was not a masterpiece in accuracy, at least it was written and acted in totally serious fashion with more detailed explanation and explained in the opening pilot-episode how the time tunnel was built, the cost, and at least a valid attempt to explain how time travel concept works…or may work. One never knew anything about the personal lives of the lead characters. The writing was focused only on the subject matter of the specific episode, as it should be. If writers want to focus on the jokes, innuendos, and humor, they should write sitcoms; if writers want to focus on the intricate personal lives of the characters, they should write soap operas. Put more emphasis on time travel explanation as believable and less on unnecessary foolish dialogue.
