Storyline

Having recently discovered time travel, Dan, a facilities manager at a small Massachusetts college, has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman for whom he's fallen. In the present, Dan is misunderstood by all, and anxious that life is passing him by. But in the 18th century, he's absolutely hilarious - he gets the girl and makes friends. But Dan's actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman he's dating is not just any woman. She's Paul Revere's daughter, Deborah, and Dan's meddling causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution. To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of Chris, a brilliant, polished and popular history professor at the college, who's now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches.

great silly start
11 May 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Dan Chambers (Adam Pally) is a slacker janitor at a New England college. He discovers a time machine in a sack among his late father's possessions and uses it to travel to pre-revolutionary Lexington. He likes to spend his time drinking with John Hancock (John Gemberling) and Sam Adams (Neil Casey). He's also dating Deborah Revere (Leighton Meester), the eldest daughter of Paul Revere. All of the changes have derailed the American Revolution. In order to fix the past, he brings along history professor Chris Parrish (Yassir Lester).

It's a great silly start. Adam Pally is at his best idiocy. At first, I wasn't sure where this show was going to go. Apparently, the writers aren't that sure either because the thing starts to ramble around. It fits the Chambers character with his aimlessness. I almost wish that they roll the dice and try to assassinate baby Hitler. I don't understand going back to gangland Chicago. This is a free-for-all. There is some fun with loads of lunacy but it is held back by its instability.
