Watch ‘Timeless’ give amusing shout-outs to ‘Nurse Jackie’ and Dr. Dre

Back to the Future had some fun with Marty”s frequent exclamation, “This is heavy!” Earlier this year, 11.22.63 got some laughs from James Franco”s character telling a veteran in 1960 that, yes, he served “in the Medical Corps, M*A*S*H 4077.” Now Timeless is supplying the comedy with its own anachronistic language and references as the new time travel series transports its heroes from 2016 to 1937.

If you have your countdown set for Timeless” premiere on October 3, here”s another peek at the new series to tide you over until then. HitFix has an exclusive “first look” featurette that not only includes the starring cast chatting about their characters but also reveals another amusing moment from the pilot when Abigail Spencer”s character saves her ragtag team”s cover with some quick thinking and a shout-out to a certain rapper.

Check out the featurette below:

Who to turn to in dire situations whilst time traveling? Dr. Dre, Nurse Jackie, and General Hospital, of course.

The premiere episode of Timeless visits the Hindenburg disaster in 1937 as Lucy (Spencer), Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), and Wyatt (Matt Lanter) race to save history. Subsequent episodes will each take place in a different era – Abraham Lincoln”s assassination, the Watergate crisis, and the space race during the moon landing among the historical events to be spotlighted on the show.

Timeless, created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), premieres on NBC on Monday, October 3.
