Trivia

The episode opens March 2, 1836. In reality Travis wrote the letter on Feb 24, 1836. So the basic premise of this episode is incorrect. See more »

Goofs

There are several examples of zinc coated steel (buckets and tubs), which would not have been present in the Alamo, as that's a later technology from the late 1800's. See more »

Quotes

Wyatt Logan: Rufus, you need to find a way out.
Rufus Carlin: A way out? There's two things everybody knows about the Alamo. One, everybody dies. Two, they die because there's no way out.
Wyatt Logan: The Alamo didn't have anyone as smart as you. Figure it out. Make a way if you have to. We need to get the women and the children out. Same with the letter.
Lucy Preston: Well, like I said before, Travis didn't finish it.
Wyatt Logan: Then finish it for him. I'm gonna try and buy us some time.

Maybe that is the way to go...
2 November 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

In my "series"'s review I pointed out the "high production values" of the show. The representation of the 30s (cars, shop, clothes etc.) and a CGI Hindenburg destined to explode.

Now in the 5th episode I'm glad to see these values are kept intact. Although didn't seem like a very expensive set, the Alamo felt, if not "real", at least atmospheric.

I was very critical about the numerous plot holes of TImeless" and the unconvincing pseudo-science, but this episode didn't put too much weight on these. Instead it focused on the human stories, the feelings, the impact a mere letter could have to inspire people. Freedom and patriotism.

So, in that way, time-traveling sits in the back seat and let every episode grow into a 40 minutes era piece. You see there is one travel per episode. A time-travel series could have a lot back and forth in weird times in a single episode. Timeless is going to the direction of using time-travel as a (good) excuse for touching important historical events, and not to be a "pure" sci-fi show.

Judging by the good impression "The Alamo" left me, maybe that is the way to go...
