    The article from which it was taken. The series was pretty tight with the real story.

    As to "Marie" : She is married, with two children, and works driving an 18-wheeler. Asked recently how she’s doing, Marie said: “Like any normal person with a family with two small children, I’m doing OK for the most part. I’m hanging in there.”

    Another&**^% list of 100 best TV shows of...21st century.
    https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-r...e-21st-century.
    Chacun a son goute. It does at least pay homage to quite a few non English speaking shows, although it doesn't appear until #28: The Killing. And I suspect there will be a hue and cry over Downton Abbey being #50? And from a British Rag to boot.
    The Shield at #77 and Justified at #88 makes no sense.

    I actually enjoyed Timeless, probably because I grew up watching The Time Tunnel when I was 12 & 13 years old. Not terribly consistent with how their altering of past events would play out in the present, but it served as some good history lessons with some action and romance. It was good entertainment that didn't require much brain activity.
