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.

Entertainment that doesn't stress you out!
26 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm a post-modern human being so watching TV-Series is, of course, one of my favourite things, except that shows containing a lot of earnest violence, tension, cliff hangers, love triangle situations, murder, sadness and/or a general abundance of negative situations stress me out more than they entertain me.

I'm the kind of person who enjoys shows that employ a "make-fun-of-yourself- sometimes" kind of humor, have relatable characters, plots that are fun to follow and at least one female character that's not just there to make the male ones look tough. That's why I like 'Making History'! It has/does all of the above. It's hilarious, and manages to be that without making insensitive cheap-shot jokes about gender or race! There definitely are a lot of jokes based on stereotypes, but they usually go against and not with them and I like that a lot.

I recommend this series to people who enjoy shows such as 'New Girl', 'Modern Family' and 'Parks and Recreation'. It's just really good for relaxing and having a good time, and it's also great for watching with friends that enjoy different genres of shows but all like a good laugh, since elements from several genres kind of come together here. As in those other shows the actors here seem really good at their jobs, and the terrible jokes are delivered with great comedic timing so that they are extra funny.

I would not recommend it to people who need sequences about time travel to be science-y and believable, think sarcasm is the best kind of humor and/or hate puns, because this show will probably annoy them.
