One thing I do really like about Timeless is that the main character, Lucy, is in the humanities. She’s a historian. Rare to see in a show like this and welcome.
She doesn’t fight (much). She doesn’t shoot people. She figures out things with an unbelievable treasure trove of facts and historical context.
That I can get behind.
Another thing: both episodes I’ve watched have explicitly dealt with the racist history of the country and not just swept it under the rug. Damn admirable.
Show won’t be renewed, I’d guess.
