The fans of this show, wow. To tell what I know of it, this show was canceled in the first season. But due to fan response, the network renewed it for a second season. Then it was canceled in the second season. Again, due to fan response, the show got a two episode wrap-up to complete the story. Those are some dedicated fans.
What is Timeless? A show about time travelers trying to stop evil time travelers from messing with history. The show is fun at times, but nothing fantastic. I liked the characters, though in the second season, they got a lot of romance drama in there. Still, I liked the second season for them incoporating the other characters into the time traveling more. It spiced things up to rotate the cast a bit, and I think they could have done some of that in the first season.
Now on to the final wrap-up. The last two episodes don’t feel different from any other episode, at least in terms of tone. There are still dramatic character moments and problems to be solved in history. The cast that remains in the present gets more to do, though, and are pretty important, which I liked.
Is it good or bad that the episodes don’t feel different? I was looking forwards to a fun, all-out two-parter, but more of normal Timeless is fun, too. Things do feel rushed, though, which I think is due to them compressing most of the plot of the third season into two episodes. They did their best to give weight to certain things, but the plot had to move along.
At least this time, there’s no massive cliffhanger. Timeless’s time has come to an end, so they must complete the story. It could have been grander, but all of the character arcs have come to a close. We got some great callbacks. It is a fine ending to the series. I had fun jumping around time with Timeless.
