Trust No One

7/10
Author: jbeckhamlat from Chicago
22 June 2007

TRUST NO ONE Secrets are trickling out, characters are not evolving. I have seen 5 episodes.

Traveler is a fast paced intense politico drama. An intricate mix of THE RULE OF FOUR (a novel); 9/11 (event); and the FUGITIVE (old fact based series) with shades of Orwellian manipulation and V for Vendetta's plot, all combine to produce an attention grabbing thoughtful chase.

What would have been fantasy 10 years ago - - now can be seen as a credible premise without any hesitation.

The two boy scout characters are balanced by a 'former friend' -the suspect who framed them; then there 2 agencies in pursuit: first the legit forces of law enforcement in hot pursuit; counter-balanced by the evil if not extra-legal Orwellian Manipulators –plot overseers -- of a homeland –HOMETOWN – military-security type agency. Two sides: hunted and hunters; each with two sides within: good and bad. Interpersonal animosity is hinted at – but is overshadowed by a team player mentality.

Trustno1, how many share that password, is the show's advice to those on the run and, perhaps, the audience.

No sex (mildly hinted at in flashbacks); some common violence; the white nights are pure; and the crooks are sadly viceless as well. Think Supernatural with Patriotic Act paranoia as the back story instead of demons --but the same fine inter actor chemistry. FUN.
