What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, Timeless begins as a mysterious criminal (Goran Visnjic) steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America by changing the past. The country’s only hope is an unexpected team of a history professor (Abigail Spencer), a soldier (Matt Lanter), and a scientist (Malcolm Barrett) as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime to stop the villain. The rest of the cast includes Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.
Season One Ratings
For whatever reason, the networks seem to be fixated on time travel this season. Fortunately for Timeless, it was the first to air. It also didn’t hurt that the peacock network scheduled it to follow their most popular series, The Voice. Timeless had a positive start. Unfortunately, the ratings have been falling quite rapidly. Though it’s been hyped as a hit, Timeless is no Blacklist. It’s also not a cheap series to produce (lots of new costumes and sets each week). Unless the numbers miraculously get better (where’s a time machine when you need it?), I think time is short for Timeless. The television vulture has reason to watch this one closely.
