You may have heard a thing or two already about the helicopter that is going to fly over the convention center on Saturday, July 21. Now, there are a few more details that you should know. The helicopter will fly intermittently around the area starting at 12:00 p.m. Pacific time, and it will conclude at around 3:00. This is right in the thick of one of the busiest times of the convention, and it is certainly a great opportunity to get some more attention towards the cause.
As for what the banner will say, it will bear the message of “You Guys Want to Get Rufus Back, Or What?” — a reference to what happened with Rufus at the end of the season 2 finale. You can see a mock-up of what the helicopter banner could look like over at SaveTimeless.com, the official site for the campaign. (It will, of course, feature the #SaveTimeless hashtag prominently.)
For those of you who are not on-site, rest assured that there’s still a way that you can check it out via livestream. You will be able to check that out over at this Facebook page. The stream is being set up via a second helicopter, which should give you a rather impressive view of the proceedings. There will also be plenty of photos.
All in all, what the Clockblockers have done to set all of this up is super-impressive, and they could not have found a better venue for it if they had tried. It’s hard to say as to whether or not this is actually going to help the show get a season 3 or a movie to wrap up the story, but we do think that this is one of the best things that can be done at this point. With cast contracts expired already, there is really nothing left to do other than swing for the fences and see what happens. We know that there are millions of fans all over the world who would love to see more Timeless on the air.
