I loved the fact that it had two of my favorite things (except the supernatural and magic), these things I loved before I was introduced to the luring world of series, and they are: history (more exactly re-enacting of history in motion pictures) and of course, last but not least: time travel.
It has also lots of other good things, first would be Goran Visnjic, I have seen him before in several movies and or series and his face and beautiful way of performing have stayed with me so I would obviously would love something he is a part of. The series also has a cute guy, of course, Matt Lanter who I have also seen before in series and or shows.
We have the actress playing the main character, Lucy Preston – not really a new comer – but I can say I cannot remember her from anything else even though I see she was a star in other movies/shows, Abigail Spencer. To make the team a whole we have a funny character, in a quirk way – Rufus – portrayed by Malcolm Barrett, which we see later is not so funny when he starts working for the bad guys.
Last and not least, the series is created by one of the mighty ones, and that is the one and only Eric Kripke, a name we (meaning I) have seen many times and we will still see for many times to come.
The team has to follow Garcia Flynn that stole a time machine to travel through time in important historical moments to create havoc in the present world – or is he? As we see from the short discussions Lucy has had with Flynn he is actually getting some data perhaps from an old journal that seems to have been written by Lucy herself – now I assume any rational person, or at least any person with a bit of background and knowledge in stories and/or time travel would think the journal is surely hers, maybe in the future she will remain captive in the past were she writes the journal and somehow that journal gets to present Garcia Flynn.
We also know his goal is to end Rittenhouse, which seems that no one knows what that is until we see them show up at the end of episode 4 and Rufus meets them first hand – people responsible for a great deal of suffering according to Garcia Flynn, including the loss of his family.
It remains to be seen what Rittenhouse is and how Garcia got the old journal with Lucy’s handwriting on it. And while we see that we get to see the team travel through space and time .
