AWESOME SHOW, ENOUGH SAID! If you're a fan of Timeless, Forever and even Legends of Tomorrow you will certainly like this show, though it's more serious than the others but has it's comical moments. The acting is great, the story is great (though i thought it was not going to work at first), lets hope this show gets the ratings to keep it going for a few seasons at least, time travel shows tend to not have a fantastic track record.. unless of course it's Dr. Who.. :( WATCH IT NOW! you won't be disappointed.
This Review is based on the 2 hour pilot of "Time After Time" which aired 3/5/17 at 9:00 on abc. When I first heard about Time After Time last year I was skeptical. The premise of HG Wells chasing Jack the Ripper throughout time sounded like a pretty forced story line. Later when I heard they had cast unknown's for the lead roles I was even more concerned. I do believe every actor should get their fair chance at success, but it is certainly a risk moving forward with a show on a major network with no recognizable cast members. My concerns have been completely dissuaded and I happy extremely happy to announce that Time After Time was extremely enjoyable and a wonderful new addition to the family of Time Travel themed TV shows, in the company of 12 Monkeys, Legends of Tomorrow and Timeless. It never gets old seeing a character from the past marvel at the wonders of modern day society - and the performances from Freddie Stroma (H.G) Wells and Josh Bowman (Jack the Ripper) were both so different, and yet just as convincing. They even included a scene where Wells was brought to tears as he saw the current state of the world on TV -- I thought this was a simple, yet extremely powerful scene. The series is not without its humor, but for the most part is extremely serious - far more so than Legends or Timeless. Jack the Ripper is a deranged and seriously dangerous individual and Wells, while slightly naive and idealistic has no qualms about the danger Jack presents to both women, and the timeline. The pacing for the pilot moved along quite nicely, alloting just the right time for set up, important plot progression and character development while begging to weave in subplots that will expand as the show goes on. Unlike Timeless and Legends which are procedural shows with serial elements, Time After Time gave me the impression it would be serialized with procedural elements (that means each consecutive episode will be a continuation of the last, telling an overall story). The look and feel of the show gave me some serious vibes from abc's Forever which I feel was cancelled way to soon before It really had a chance to shine. So I think fans of Forever, and Houdini & Doyle will be especially happy with this new series, and I hope the ratings reflect that.
