Another last Thursday of the month and it means it’s time for some television recommendations – the post I love the most even though I sometimes struggle with the theme. This time around the theme was time travel, which turned out to be quite a good one for me. Especially considering the fact that all these shows in my list are really really good in my opinion. And surprise surprise, I actually managed to list four shows this week because there was a time when a lot of time travel was happening on TV, and because I could not not mention any of these.
Who would have guessed I would ever list a Matt Lanter show here but hey, I guess people change. Lanter who’s name is familiar to me since 90210 spin-off on CW and Star-Crossed (an underrated and utterly pointless show I actually enjoyed), grew on me during the first few episodes of Timeless, and that was that – I suddenly loved the show! It centres a team of three going back in time since someone is altering the course of history. They all have interesting backstories and among the drama there is a lot of humour and it’s so much fun. Especially when the team meets various historical figures such as Ian Flemming and Bonnie and Clyde. PS: It’s created by Eric Kripke, the guy behind Supernatural!
Alright, so Tru Calling is a little bit weird and odd, and I love it! It’s about this medical student who takes up an internship in a morgue, where Zach Galifianakis works, and discovers soon enough that she has supernatural powers. See, sometimes she is able to repeat her day (as many time as needed) to prevent a death that was too premature. The first season was great, the second fell off the tracks a bit but I still liked it, but sadly, it’s a two season show so it’s a shame it didn’t end on such a strong note as it started off. Still, it’s a pretty good one, plus, there’s Matt Bomer and everyone knows he’s good to look at!
Oh Canada, you warm my heart with such sweet and great shows like Being Erica, a show focusing on a woman finding herself and accepting her past in order to live for the future. And when I say accepting her past, I mean reliving these past events of hers she regrets during her therapy session by going back in time! It’s a brilliant concept and the show is filled with so much greatness. Erika Karpluk is perfect as Erica and well, there are the supportive characters that you can’t help to love. The show wraps its plot up brilliantly as well so it isn’t one of those shows that suddenly ends and you have no idea what happens to our main character. And I now have a sudden urge to rewatch this because it’s been too long and I just realised I miss this show so much!
Bittersweet mention of a show that almost was more than just a one season wonder. It got renewed, just to get cancelled days before the production of season 2 would have started – I was devastated. Hindsight was about this woman, right before her second marriage, transported back in time to the 90’s, where she will have to right her wrongs. Especially her relationship with her best friend, who she had a falling out with for some unknown reason. It was quirky and fun, plus it was filled with 90’s references, which a 90’s kid like me, loved. 10 episodes of greatness, and me forever wondering what could have happened in season 2.
