Did You Know?


As Rufus is explaining to Lucy why he admires Kathrine Johnson he mentions that they had even made a movie about her. The movie that the real life Kathrine Johnson was portrayed in is "Hidden Figures". Strange that the writers would add this since Timeless is a product of NBC Universal and Hidden Figures is a product of 21st Century Fox: Two competing production companies. The movie was released 6 January, 2017 - Just about a month after this episode of Timeless was first aired. See more »

Rufus Carlin: She says to the guy whose only possible cover is janitor.
Lucy Preston: Touché.
Agent Denise Christopher: You want to fit in to NASA in 1969, that's the best I got for you. Now get dressed and get going.

Take the time to learn the hardware
28 November 2016 | by martinalcockSee all my reviews

In both scenes when they mount a magnetic tape on the drive it is on the wrong reel and backwards. Tapes of the day fed from the left to right, and the yellow plastic ring was to enable writing to it. It is shown quite prominently facing outward, not inward, on the right hand, not left hand, reel. They are also seen trying to load a paper tape, IBM machines of the day did not have paper tape readers, these were an peripheral device of teletype machines, used mostly by minicomputers. In the control room, when the so-called signal loss occurs, the screen is plastered with 'no signal', which only appeared on video projectors of a later era. During this so-called outage, the telemetry on the mission control consoles was alive and well.
