Travelers (2016): Season 1
In a year of time travel shows (Timeless, 11:22:63 to name a couple) comes Travelers (the Canadian spelling is killing me here). The last surviving humans in a world riddled with droughts, famine, disease and war find a way to send their consciousness back in time to the 21st century, into the bodies of those near death, with a plan to change events in order to save the future. The show follows one such team of Travelers headed up by F.B.I agent grant MacLaren (Eric McCormack) as they attempt to deliver their mission.
The show isn’t as well publicised as those other time travel themed shows mentioned, and can quite easily go unnoticed in Netflix’s large catalogue of shows. You should, however, check this hidden gem out. The show is a little slow to start as it introduces the concept of Travelers and how they arrive in the 21st century, but once the show finds its momentum it becomes rather fascinating and quite fun in places. Unlike similar shows it manages to mix up the shows formula in the various episodes meaning it doesn’t become overly repetitive or stale.
This is well worth checking out, here’s hoping its picked up for a second run and given the decent shot it deserves.
