Okay, what the hell happened between Season 7 and Season 8 (the final season)? Season 7 looked fantastic, HD quality, bright, consistent color. Season 8 looks like shit. No color correction. Muddy night scenes. Some yellowish. Some pinkish. Contrast too high in the day scenes. What the hell happened? Did Timeless drop the ball or the budget on this one? The story "The Long Ride Home" and acting were fine, as usual, but the look was a complete and inconsistent mess. And the music. Cheesy 5th dimension electric piano muzak and even some electric guitar in some sequences. Like they were trying to hip it up, but it sounds completely inappropriate to the setting and action.
Wow, I'm just disappointed that after Season 7, this is a huge quality PQ dropoff. I usually trade the sets back in after watching (and because they are running on Inspiration Channel), but held on to 7 it looked so fantastic. And then this. I just couldn't believe how crummy the earlier scenes in episode one looked. Very distracting to otherwise good origin story for Tim Matheson (the man who never ages and has been around forever).
