Did You Know?


This was going to be the last show of the series, as NBC announced on Wednesday 5/10/2017 that it was being canceled. However, the internet "erupted" with protests the next day, and the network's response was unprecedented. On Saturday 5/13/2017 NBC "uncancelled" the show and ordered 10 more episodes. See more »


When talking to Senator Joe McCarthy, Wyatt mentions "Eastern-european accent" of Garcia Flynn. Garcia Flynn is multiple-generation American and is not supposed to have an accent. However Goran Visnjic, who plays him, being Croatian-born, does. See more »


Wyatt Logan: Any ideas where this Rittenhouse summit could be?
Lucy Preston: If I had to pick a place to start, I'd start with Joe McCarthy. McCarthy thought that there were communists everywhere; State Department, writers, journalists. He's in the middle of one of his most famous hearings, looking for reds in the army. The guy's practically wearing a giant neon sign that says "Rittenhouse".

Season is Poorly written Fractured Timeline Scenario Iminant
30 May 2017 | by filmblue-11636See all my reviews

Although the special looked realistic and pleasant while the announcement of spring 2018 sounds like a government terror alert red issue. The ending didn't have a solution for the season finale which could have been written with enough time and research with some more editing from the screenplay.

Goran character in the story was not created well since the first and the last episode has some man from the future in the Hindenburg episode while in this episode the man who gives her the book from the the future, which is the same journal only aged. Another generation of Lucy Preston's offspring gone ISIS/AXIS POWERS/AL Queda? I wouldn't believe the writing team were communicating with each other while the process didn't have enough team work to make this successful.
