Like the ideas. The negative I find about this show is the characters relationships. Mainly Lucy's. You guys created Lucy and Fylnn to have such great chemistry. So much that at the end game. It should've been Fylnn that ended up with Lucy. But you just killed him off like that and forced the end game relationship to Wyatt and Lucy. And that so called relationship that seems more forced then anything else.

I felt like this show had a lot of potential to be really good, unfortunately each episode was the same. They went back in time, almost caught the bad guys, bad guys get away, heroes come back. Even when they were supposed to be stranded in the past, they were only stranded for a day rather than months or years until they could fix a time machine in colonial times. The characters were really dry too, there wasn't a whole lot of connection to them through the series. The other problem I had with the show was the lack of time travel explanations. The most we saw was that the girl's sister disappeared after a seemingly unrelated historical event and the soldier wanted to try and save his wife.

If you love sci-fi, love history, and love action then WATCH THIS SHOW! Timeless is an incredible concept in which we get to see so many amazing moments from our history as well as "what could have been" had history gone differently. The acting is amazing and the top performers are Goran Visnjic as anti-hero Garcia Flynn and Malcom Barrett as scientist Rufus Carlin. Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter perform well as Lucy Preston and Wyatt Logan, a history professor and American soldier, respectively. Please, do NOT listen to negative reviews. This show is decent, fun, intense, and enjoyable for the entire family to watch. Plus, who doesn't love a little mystery and mythology thrown into the mix with the whole Rittenhouse conspiracy woven into American history as we know it? I've thoroughly enjoyed each episode of this show and it has clearly improved as it has progressed. Not only is this show educational as far as letting us in on certain moments of American history, but it is also relevant to our current, modern world due to its references to racial and sexist issues. I can say no more except watch this show, get your family to watch it, your friends, co-workers...Spread the word!
