Travelers (Netflix)
Quote | Reply
Anyone watching Travelers on Netflix? There is one full season so far, which I finished the other night. Huge cliffhanger at the end.

Premise: In the future, time travel has been developed, but with certain limitations. Rather than the entire person going back in time, only the consciousness of the person travels. "The Director" is in charge of time travel. Using historical records, the Director knows when people in the 21st century die. Just before the time of death, the consciousness of the future person is transferred to the body of the person in the 21st century. There are certain directives for Travelers, including the fact that they must continue the life of the 21st century person they inhabit. Plus, they must carry out missions to prevent disasters in the 21st century that cause huge devastation in the future.

It makes for an interesting story b/c the Travelers are sent in "teams" to carry out missions, but must continue the lives of their hosts. The series focuses on the following team:

Leader - enters the body of a married FBI Agent.
Doctor - enters the body of a developmentally disabled young woman.
Historian - enters the body of a college-age male who is a heroin addict.
Tech - enters the body of a male high school football player.
Weapons - enters the body of a single mother.

Anyone else watching?

I watched Season 1. Apparently in Canada (it was a Early Spring show) we had it awhile back. Glad to hear that Netflix has picked it up as well. I liked it a lot, but I feel it is one of those shows that could so easily be cancelled. I certainly hope for season 2.

Interesting. They make is seem like it was created by Netflix, but that does not appear to be true if it was on Canadian t.v. I am hoping by being on Netflix it means Netflix has picked it up and will be making a Season 2. Not the best series I have watched, but quite entertaining.

I watched the first season as well and thought it was okay. There is a Season 2 scheduled.

So apparently it was released last October in Canada. My how time flies. Glad there will be a season 2. Looks like a joint venture. Anyway, it has a lot of potential I think.
