I love cuddling up in bed after a long day with a cup of tea to watch a good show on TV. Today I am sharing about my new favorite show, Timeless in this sponsored post.
I am a huge history buff! Pete often teases me about this because the first thing I do when we travel to a new area is to see if there are any historical sites we can visit. I even have the girls doing the same thing. Maddie especially and she gets even more excited if there are any haunted places where we are visiting.
My love of history comes from my parents. They too are intrigued by things that happened years ago and they taught me that a lot can be learned from past mistakes, and successes. But most importantly they taught me that history teaches us lessons so that we don't let those same issues happen again.
When we visit historically significant places I always imagine what it would have been like to walk in those same streets years and years ago and to meet the people in the stories we read about. Of course, that is isn't possible. But to meet Hemingway or other notable historical figures, or to witness events from the past would be a dream come true for me.
That is why I am head over heals in love with the new show, Timeless!
Timeless is from Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of “The Blacklist”, all of which are other shows I love. This thrilling action-adventure series features a mysterious criminal who steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine and is intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past.

The only hope to save the America as we know it comes from an unexpected team: a scientist, a soldier, and a history professor. These three use their talents and 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. But can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it's too late? That is the question you will ask yourself over and over again with each new episode.
The show also features a fun and subtle love story, the most amazing authentic time period clothing and features historically significant characters from the past. One of the episodes even had the Hindenburg in it, which was extra cool since the pilot was a distant relative of Pete's. Each episode is like watching history come alive and the anticipation is constant as you wonder how they will preserve history while stopping the criminal. Each of the characters comes with some history of their own and they each have a reason for doing what they do, while still trying to preserve American history. It is one of those shows that I have been telling all of my friends about because within just a few minutes of watching it you will be hooked!
Here is a little clip to get you excited to watch Timeless too!
Be sure to watch the Timeless finale Monday 2/20 at 10/9c on NBC!
