UPDATE: It worked! Timeless was renewed after us fans spoke up! Season 2 premiere Sunday, March 11th, 2018!
Last fall my husband and I started carving out some couple time during the week after our daughter went to bed. It has us looking forward to Monday nights as we take a trip, each week to somewhere we’ve never been before. I’m not talking about your ordinary trip, as there are no bags packed. I’m talking about the trip we take with NBC’s Timeless. We can’t stop talking about the show and it’s why I’m excited to partner with them on this sponsored post.
We are heading into what will be the biggest episode of the year, the final episode, airing this MONDAY, February 20th at 10/9pm CST. Timeless is full of mystery and history and an adventure you’ll want to join.
In this era where reality television seems to be king, I’ve been missing a great hour-long drama, and I finally found that again with NBC’s Timeless. It’s unique, creative, clever and historical.
Here’s What I Love Most:
My husband and I sit there pausing the show asking each other questions about history…”Did that really happen?” or “Did you ever hear that before?”. We sit there mesmerized, trying to anticipate the big picture, who are the bad guys (something that we find ever-changing), and what will happen next.
AND then we Google!
You read that correctly. We tend to spend the next hour googling things we never knew, little known details we somehow missed in the big picture history lessons we were taught in school. I had never ever heard of the serial killer H.H. Holmes and his hotel. Neither had my husband. It played out right before us in one episode that had us on the edge of our seats. Not only am I enjoying Timeless, but I’m learning so much with episodes surrounding such events as the Alamo, Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, the person the Lone Ranger was based off of, and so much more. It brings history to life.
But yet I haven’t told you the basis of the show…
From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of “The Blacklist” comes this thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, a soldier and a history professor, who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?
These three are on the adventure of their life, though not necessarily by choice. They find themselves in awe as they walk among those we’ve only read about in history books. I’m a bit jealous, though I don’t think I could handle the journey with my queasy stomach. Ha!
Take a look…
Trust me, you will want to binge-watch and catch up! That’s perhaps the best part, because you will want to watch one right after another – it’s THAT good!
There’s so much history. There’s real-time drama and quite a bit of heartache. And let me just say that NBC better keep this one on the air for seasons and seasons to come! I need my Timeless every week!
Watch Timeless LIVE Mondays 10/9c on NBC!
