A ‘Thank You’ to Timeless
I am deeply saddened and upset by the cancellation of my newfound favorite show, but you know what? I’m also feeling pretty thankful. So I’m going to say some thank yous!
Firstly, thank you to, of course, Eric Kripke. He created a seriously amazing show that was consistenly intelligent and entertaining with a perfect balance of action, emotion, and humor. He brought incredible stories and characters to our screens every week. Timeless wouldn’t exist without him! Thank you too much Eric for bringing such a beautiful thing into the world!
Thank you to Abigail Spencer, Malcolm Barrett, Matt Lanter, and the rest of the cast. They worked so hard and had so much love for this show, and it’s evident. There was no weak link in the cast. A lot of times, sci-fi shows will have a solid lead cast and mediocre side characters, but not Timeless. Everyone was amazing. I have to give a special thank you to the Time Team themselves, though. Malcolm, Matt, and Abigail gave some of the most reliably high-quality performances this season, in my opinion. They gave their characters such depth and complexity. They handled the emotional scenes with such dexterity that it always felt real and never really melodramatic. They kept this show grounded when it so easily could have flew up into the cloud as science fiction so often does. Also, they are such a fun group of people who were so kind to fans. Malcolm’s Instagram live streams were plain-out legendary, and through them he along with other cast members interacted with fans so much and answered so many comments. I know other cast members were good about liking and replying to fans on twitter, as well. This means a lot! So many shows don’t have such an interactive cast! So thank you to them for everything.
Finally, thank you to you guys. The fandom. I view us as such a happy fandom. No big arguments or “ship wars” or whatever goes on in other communities. We truly are what a fandom should be- a place to come and talk about what we love. We are a devoted bunch, and we can’t say we went down without a fight. I love us! Thank you all for being so amazing and forming such a wonderful community!
