Timeless Saved from Cancellation by NBC

Last week was brutal from a TV cancellation perspective with three of my favorite shows getting the ax - NBC's Timeless, ABC's The Catch and FOX's Pitch. I was not doing my happy dance, but then NBC REVERSED its decision on Timeless on Friday. 

Thank you. 

It's getting a ten episode pick up for season two. 

Timeless is a thriller with time travel thrown in. It's hard enough to catch super bad evil doers when you have to make sure you're not caught by the red coats during the revolutionary army, or trapped by the Devil In the White City in one of his killing sprees. It makes it harder when you're not exactly sure who the evil doers are. 

Our three good guys are Lucy (The Historian), Rufus, (Time Travel Pilot) and Wyatt (The Warrior). 

NBC has not yet announced when the ten episodes will air, but we'll let you know. In the meantime, check out season one if you get a chance. NBC said it was because of an outcry from fans, but Matt Lanter who plays Wyatt said on Facebook that they went back in time to alter events to change NBC's mind

As for the other two shows that I loved that got canceled:

The Catch - there are two seasons worth of fun. This show reminds me of the movie, Charade. You never know what's going on and then it all makes sense. If you like light thrillers with a little romance thrown in, you'll love The Catch. 

Pitch - This show was about a black female baseball player pitching in the Major Leagues. It had nothing to do with baseball (or mysteries) and everything to with a woman competing in a man's world. I loved the writing and the characters. I also love baseball. There is only one season. 

We're any of your favorite shows canceled last week? 
Are you willing to give Timeless a try? 


  1. Great news, I love Timeless. Unfortunate about The Catch that was another one of my favorites!

  2. I was so happy to read this. Love this show!!
