making history

The pilot episode of the new Fox comedy, Making History premiered Sunday night starring Adam Pally (Happy Endings), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), and Yassir Lester (Girls).

Dan (Pally) is a college professor who can time travel with the use of a giant duffel bag. He frequently goes back in time to 1775 to visit his girlfriend Deborah (Meester), who is the daughter of Paul Revere (Matt Servitto) and who he woos with songs from the future that she’ll never know, and in doing so messes up history and the American Revolution.

Dan, realizing what he’s done, enlists the help of his co-worker Chris (Lester) to go back with him and try to fix things. He uses movie quotes and songs from the future to come off as cool to the people in 1775 and to impress Deborah. She is smitten with him and loves that he will even talk politics with her, which was frowned upon in that time. The downside is that her father already plans on marrying her off to someone else. Dan and Chris even visit Paul himself, who doesn’t realize that Dan is the one seeing his daughter and shows them the weapon he’s making to kill him with.

At the end of the episode, Chris volunteers to stay back in 1775 to try to start the American Revolution while Dan takes Deborah with him to 2016 and when they arrive they see a statue of Chris, honoring him after dying in the Battle of Lexington on April 24th 1775 which will be the very next day where they just left in the past. Realizing history is yet again messed up, the two will be going back to save him.

Fans of Gossip Girl will get a kick out of seeing Leighton Meester in a totally different role than we’re used to seeing her in and she plays it well. Adam Pally and Yassir Lester make a great comedic team in this fresh and funny take on time travel.
