Another great show people rated bad here before they even saw it... There's some Legends of Tomorrow similarities where it's about chasing a bad guy through time. However, I'm hooked anyway due to good cast and performances. The show is fun as well.


Looks like a copy of spanish's Ministerio del Tiempo. In fact, its showrunner has taken it to the courts.


I feel like this is gonna be a bad one....


I really like this show the longer I watch it, the time travel almost seems to be becoming secondary to the actual plot. The chemistry of the cast is great, the acting quite good and they reveal enough of the plot to keep you interested while keeping enough secret to keep you intrigued. I like this better than legends of tomorrow.


i want 10 seasons of this for me to watch in a months time :)


I didn't think I would like this but I gave it a shot and just couldn't stop watching it until I finished the first season. I like the different eras and personalities they meet as well as the fashion. Not too sure about the larger story line but it has potential and I would gladly watch more. Rufus' character was a bit hard to watch, not sure if intentional but either way I was not a fan and don't see that changing.


I had high expectations and then I watched it... can't get that time back


hate to see this show go. I really enjoyed it.


Terrific show. Hope it goes on.


The show will have a two part series finale. So at least we won‘t be left with that huge cliffhanger. ;) but I was rooting for a season three.
