Great, but violent TV Show!

Timeless is a great TV Show, it has a lot violence and some sex talk. Towards the end of the first season it got more violent more dark and more bloody. Is great for older kids. There is occasional language. Overall Timeless is an amazing TV Show and for 13 and up.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (16 ):

This fun story uses imagination, intrigue, and mystery to explore American history and the possibilities of science. Timeless successfully weaves together the suspense of a cat-and-mouse chase with details about (and recreations of) past events that have had had a major impact on how the United States has grown and changed. Lots of fictional characters and unsolved questions also drive the narrative forward.

Keeping track of the changes in the timelines, and how they each affect each cast member's experience, is part of the fun. But it sometimes gets a little complicated, especially when the consequences of these changes aren't immediately evident. Nonetheless, it's a show that offers lots of entertainment for viewers who like a good journey through time and space, and fun for families who like a little bit of learning with their entertainment.
