Another great review for last nights episode of Timeless.
This is perhaps a stretch, but those are all qualities one hopes to see in a good spy (a good fictional spy, anyway), and “Party at Castle Varlar” has got one of those, too. Sean Maguire’s (Once Upon a Time) turn as Ian Fleming marks a high point for Timeless guest stars to date. It’s a winning performance of a character that offers plenty of opportunities for both fun and high-stakes action (and we get both). The thing that works best about Fleming as a character, however, is this: his presence matters, both actively and thematically, to all three of our leads, and that makes a hell of a difference.
