What The Critics Say (Metacritic 62)

  • This is a TV show in an admirably old-fashioned sense of the word, with a tight, action-packed pilot episode that is casually fun and intriguingly executed. There’s also a thought-provoking science-fiction premise that doesn’t clumsily reach for the profoundly metaphorical. — Hank Stuever, Washington Post
  • Approach Timeless as throwback, somewhat in the vein of a less nuanced Quantum Leap, and it can be enjoyed. But be prepared to turn your brain on and off at random intervals and don’t yank too hard at any of the plausibility strings, or I fear Timeless will unravel entirely. — Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter
  • The show (or the pilot, at least) falls quickly into the problem of taking an arrogant look back at the follies of a (as portrayed) quaintly ignorant past. — Allison Keene, Collider
