New NBC Voyagers! inspired Time Travel series!

Get ready for a brand new action-adventure series, "Timeless" starting on October 3rd, 2016 on the NBC Network. Fans must read this interview article from KsiteTV.

In the linked article, the Producer/Creator Eric Kripke discusses Voyagers! and how his fan love for the series inspired him to make "Timeless." Based off NBC's description and the trailer, the similarities are immediately evident for Voyagers fans!

Time Agents chasing a rogue Time Traveler throughout history is exactly what Voyagers Phineas Bogg and Jeffrey Jones are tasked to do in the mid-season episode, "Trial of Phineas Bogg." Read more about Voyager Drake and his dastardly deeds on my About Voyagers page.

Bogg & Jeff must hunt down Voyager Drake, whose goal is to ruin history. Drake makes an interesting 2nd appearance in the final episode of Voyagers!- Jack's Back. Bogg and Jeff are embroiled in a Sherlock Holmes-esque mystery involving Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and the adventurous Journalist, Nellie Bly.

I look forward to diving into "Timeless" and watching it play out. The creators have a string of hit shows behind them, so it's a firm chance this series will be successful. "Timeless" has the 10:00pm slot on Monday nights to start.

"Timeless" can't be considered family friendly as the 8:00pm Voyagers! series was back in 1982. But real history is not necessarily pretty. To partially quote Voyager Bogg – "I know it's hard to understand, but sometimes history's cruel. There's, there's wars, disasters, injustices, but some of those things, no matter how much you want them not to happen, are supposed to happen."

I always said that it's possible a Voyager may have to make sure a tragedy DOES occur, rather than prevent one. Otherwise, they need to stand by and not interfere. I want to see how the characters in "Timeless" deal with those repercussions when their humanity kicks in, and they are torn about saving others. Those will make for some dramatic episodes.

Timeless Trailer

Info on "Timeless" from NBC:

From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of
“The Blacklist” comes this thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, soldier and history professor who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. Can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?

The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.

Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan serves as writers and executive producers. John Davis, John Fox, Marney Hochman and director Neil Marshall also executive produce. “Timeless” is produced by Davis Entertainment, Kripke Enterprises and MiddKid Productions in association with Sony PicturesTelevision.

Jon-Erik Hexum: Absurd Person Singular (Voyagers! Related article)

Great article about how Jon-Erik Hexum landed in Hollywood and what it was like first filming Voyagers! with Meeno Peluce.

According to Jon's friend, by the time the cast made Episode 12 – Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley play the Palace, they knew the show wasn't going to be renewed, so it was a somber time filming. That's understandable, since Episode 13 –The Trial of Phineas Bogg– felt like a series ender. However at least we got 7 more episodes, and even the return of the show's resident villain, Voyager Drake.

You can see how the budget was slashed with less action, less time traveling, and more character driven story lines. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

But in my opinion, the cutbacks as well as the Television censors that cracked down on the show kind of squeezed the some of the fun out of the series.

What do you think?
