Superb New Series You'll Want To Keep Watching
11 December 2016 | by (Seattle, Washington USA) – See all my reviews

This is a unique show, different from other time travel scenarios, in the way it is written, acted, and how well it's produced. I'd actually call it THE new break-out series to watch for 2016. It's nice to know there are still true Creatives working in the industry who can produce a gripping, interesting program without the benefit of a huge budget or glossing every other scene over in tons of fancy CGI.

I wouldn't mind just a bit more in the special effects arena, but there is a Realness to the plot/episodes that manages to transcend the lack of technical effects, which let's the viewer's imagination do some of the best work. That may be the singular quality that makes it so phenomenal to watch! I also think that as this sci-fi series grows its following, Travelers could be a lot like other Cult Favorites that were lower budget but grew up --just enough-- to start incorporating a few more well-placed, topically-consistent special effects (think Lost Girl, Fringe, DW, Orphan Black, etc).

The plot is well-premised, based on a peek at a frightening future that is almost too easy for viewers to conjure up on their own. Travelers may be firmly anchored in Here and Now, but the Future and Past are folded into the Present with excellent story lines and smooth, logical character development. This yields amazingly restrained but thoughtful performances from the actors, including the ever-talented Eric McCormack (in, what may very well be, the best role of his career). The episodes are so subtle yet intense that each one will grab you by the brain and you won't want to stop watching. I've re-watched the pilot episode a few times now, and it still hasn't gotten old. Like a very good book, each new pass yields a little more for the imagination to chew on.

I highly recommend this gem of a show and truly hope Travelers gets picked up for a long, healthy run. Fingers crossed!
