Timeless is quickly becoming one of my favorite new shows. I have always been obsessed with the idea of Time Travel. In addition, I love learning about history. This show gives you a good dose of sci-fi mixed with some real history, which makes for an exciting combination. In the show, a criminal steals a time machine in the hopes of changing history. An unlikely team that includes a scientist, a soldier, and a history professor are there to help correct the damage. The first episode was about the Hindenburg, and that is only the beginning of the historical events this team will try to preserve.
A few bloggers, including myself, were lucky enough to interview Abigail Spencer who plays Lucy, the history teacher. This mother of an eight-year-old boy is making headlines in her role, and it was exciting to get a chance to hear how she feels about the show and the character she portrays. She told us one of her favorite parts of the show is the fashion. It's lots of fun getting to dress up in clothing from a different decade or even a different century. She's hoping to get to shoot a scene in the 1940s since she was always inspired by that particular era, especially since Hollywood was just beginning to take off.
Of course, being an actor does come with some challenges. Her career forces her to spend a lot of time away from her son. Luckily, she is able to keep up with his school activities online on ClassDojo which is a program many of us moms were familiar with. Because of her son, Abigail is very selective about the roles she chooses, but she knew with Timeless she had a winner. It's a show packed with intrigue and action, plus you can actually learn something about the past. There's also a potential relationship between Lucy and Wyatt Logan which could certainly steam things up.
Here is a little bit about the next episode airing on Monday.
“The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln” airs Monday, October 10 at 10/9c on NBC
THE TEAM CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF ONE OF HISTORY’S GREATEST MEN.
Lucy (Abigail Spencer), Wyatt (Matt Lanter), and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) chase terrorist Garcia Flynn (Goran Višnjić) to the night of Lincoln’s assassination, where they’re horrified to learn that Flynn’s linked up with history’s most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth (guest star Kelly Blatz). Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better? Also starring Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit. Guest starring Neal Bledsoe, Michael Krebs, Terry Lewis and Lucia Frangione.
"Timeless" airs Mondays 10/9c on NBC. Make sure you don't miss the next episode!
