Critic Reviews for Travelers Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

It contains just enough intrigue for continuous viewing, but is light enough to not over-tax one's spirits.

Wright should be applauded for presenting a genuinely fresh and interesting vision. The acting is excellent across the board, with particular nods to Abrahamson and Reilly Dolman (Philip).

It's entertaining and engrossing, fast-moving, and addictive enough that you are willing to ignore some of the flaws in its logic, and there are a lot of flaws here, as is often the case with time travel shows.

One of the things I'm enjoying most about Travelers is its great use of comedic tones, particularly in McCormack's oft-befuddled portrayal of McLaren.

Smart time travel show balances thrills with humanity.

Mar 7, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series' mix of seasoned sci-fi directors and relatively new writers gives it a suitable blend of freshness and assurance, and watching even a single episode gives some sense of just how much there is to be teased out. Intriguing stuff.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It's hard to find a fresh take on the time-travel conceit, since it's been around so long and has been so heavily mined lately, but Travelers has some attention-grabbing flourishes and fine acting.

Jan 5, 2017 | Full Review…

One thing that can be positively said for Travelers is that it's never predictable.

Audience Reviews for Travelers: Season 1



Super Reviewer


Travelers is an incredibly confusing science fiction series that delivers an uneven yet compelling first season. The series follows a group of time travelers from the distant future who have come back to prevent a catastrophic event from occurring, but in the meanwhile they have to maintain their covers by living out the lives of the people they were implanted in. The time travel rules don't make a lot of sense; especially given that the travelers (who are imprinted in people in the present at the time of their deaths) are causing hundreds of butterfly effects by continuing the lives of people that are supposed to have died, keeping the future constantly in flux. Not to mention how highly unethical it all is. The writers don't seem to have a clear plan, as the show kind of loses direction midway through the season; although the finale is remarkably strong, bringing several plot threads to a head. And, logic problems aside, the concept of the series is interesting and the show does a good job at building suspense and intrigue. Travelers: Season 1 is a bit of a mess, but it has high ambitions and explores some thought-provoking issues.
