so bad
21 April 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't know what is more annoying that H.G Wells have a to be a character who invented the time machine or that 'writers seem to like to call Him "H.G" call him Herbert or Mr Wells, and when was he ever a scientist? Anyway Wells has a time machine he has created in his basement and has a bunch of nobles/posh friends around in what looks very similar to the start of Blackadder: Back & Forth (which is probably a nod to Wells in the first place) The Time machine is stolen by "the ripper" we don't have a second time machine to go chasing after him but conveniently the time machine returns to where ever the key is! wouldn't it make more sense for the key to be required for the machine to work? but then how would you chase him? #plotdevice bad science: sometimes the time machine actually poofs out of existence in current time and appears at the new time and location even able to cross continents other times its played out as if the machine it self is static has to be physically moved and maintained while only its contents travel, the writers haven't quite decided and change based on whichever they wanted it to be at the time.

there's a weak romance sub plot akin to a chick flick fan service mostly uninteresting and lacking any chemistry.

Wells adapts to the future far to easily and the actor who plays him seems to be always standing off to the side somewhere grinning like an oblivious Cheshire cat.

I think hiding H.G. Wells works in the show should be cool Easter egg type things but they don't make any attempt to hide anything. he runs into his own creations far too often and its more cringe than a nod.

the story goes round in circles tries to make characters complex and just makes them look like they don't know what they are doing.

probably give this one a miss.
