Watch Minute Men on Disney Channel!
In High School, everyone needs the occasional "do over." That's where the Minutemen come in. These three seniors have found a portal back in time and they have united to use their powers to save fellow students from those embarrassing situations we've all had. Charlie is the under-aged genius who designed a time machine, Zeke is the metal shop "biker guy" who built it, and Virgil (Jason Dolley) is the leader of this timely trio who discover that turning the clock back can turn into a real mess. Now everyone is talking, the Feds are after them, the and there's this itzy bitsy problem called a black hole. For the Minutemen, there's not a minute to lose.
Virgil Fox (Jason Dolley) had a typical first day of high school?if you can call being hung up on a giant ram statue in cheerleader's clothes typical." Four years later he's sitting at the cafeteria's nerd table, still trying to live down the events of that fateful day. But now his genius friend Charlie has come up with a way to reverse the curse. With the help of their new friend Zeke, Virgil and Charlie have built a bona fide time machine that lets them turn back the clock and fix embarrassing events before they ever happen. These three secret champions of the unfortunate call themselves the Minutemen, and they're fast becoming big men on campus. Of course there's a girl involved. Virgil is determined to win back the beautiful Stephanie by going back in time to change her mind. But toying with one's own fate can backfire. Now the whole world is hanging in the balance and hopefully Virgil will be just in time to be the hero.
Meet Zeke, he's that guy who can make anything in shop class and make you shut up with one icy stare. Tall, dark, and mysterious, he happens to be just the guy Virgil and Charlie need to join the Minutemen and build the time machine. Handy in a crisis, and always ready with a snappy comeback line, this rebel with a cause will do everything he can to keep time on their side. Rough around the edges, but smooth.
Charlie Tuttle is Summerton High's resident genius. An under-aged, pint-sized ball of energy he is on the verge of bending time. But he needs a little help from his friends. Zeke has the mechanical skills to build the time machine, and Virgil is just crazy enough to be the first one to try it. Together they are the Minutemen, sworn to help fellow students get out of embarrassing situations before they happen. But Charlie soon discovers their trips back into the past are creating a black hole and they don't have a minute to spare. This junior genius needs to beat the clock, fool the Feds, save the planet, and hopefully not turn red when Jeanette gives him a victory kiss.
Beauty and brains, good at cheerleading and calculus, no wonder Virgil's been carrying a torch for Stephanie since freshman year of high school. She's been going steady with Derek the handsome quarterback, but she's steadily drifting back towards the guy who knows her, heart and soul. Now she's got to decide whether to stay with the big man on campus, or take a chance on the guy who's willing to bend time, just to spend more time with her.
Quirky clothes, crazy hair, and a smile that lights up the room, Jeanette is one of those people that never seems to have a bad day. She's crazy for birds, and has a soft spot for young Charlie Tuttle. Jeanette gets to be one of the guys when she discovers their secret time machine. Her job is to flip the "on" switch, hope they come back in one piece, and help them work on those awkward landings. When things get weird, can Jeanette help the Minutemen close the black hole, retain their popularity and save the planet?
As incoming freshmen, Derek and Virgil were best pals, until Derek chose being popular over being a good friend. Four years later, he's leader of the football team, and the boyfriend of the incomparable Stephanie, who Virgil not-so-secretly adores. When Derek fumbles away the big game he needs the Minutemen's help to give him an instant re-play, but does he deserve another shot, or deserve to be shot down? This play is still under review.
You don't meet a guy named Chester every day--and maybe that's a good thing. Chester holds court at the geek table at lunchtime, and is the sergeant-in-arms to "Commander Tuttle" in the computer lab. But luckily the Minutemen have his back when the jocks steal his clothes in the locker room, giving him stylish threads that turn him into the one of the most popular guys on campus. Who says the clothes don't make the man?
A leader in his own mind, Vice Principal Tolkan lost his hair a long time ago, now he's just trying to hold onto what little respect he can. But it's not easy when the kids know just how to play you. Like bribing you with coins when the machine won't take your dollar bill, or conning you into letting them set up a time machine laboratory in the school basement. Rest assured, someone's going to get detention for all this time travel non-sense, if he can every find out who it is.
Looks like a pile of junk? To the Minutemen it's a time machine in need of a little assembly. Just let the shapes be your guide. Start with the bike and skateboard parts that will supply the pedal power, then comes the framework no welding required, then connect the electronic gadgets and gizmos and fire up your very own time travel vortex!
It's just like a puzzle without that missing piece that's always behind the sofa. But you gotta beat the clock or everything will fall apart because they don't call it a crash course for nothing.
