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

The date in time that the team will travel to during each episode is displayed in the numbers on the Flip Clock in the opening credits where the word TIMELESS eventually appears. See more »

Goofs

As with most productions about time travel this one gets the time implications wrong. As soon as the time machine is in the past, whatever had happened has and people in the present won't know what it was. So if they go back with the lifeboat they would not know how it originally would have taken place.

Also there's no reason why the time machines would come back days later than they left. The time spent in the past doesn't influence what time they come back to. 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.
