Frank Martin returns as the Transporter with one very simple task - to deliver the package against all the odds. However, something that sounds so simple, is rarely so. Joined by two new team members, Caterina Boldieu, an ex- DGSE agent and later in the series, Jules Faroux, a computer and mechanical whizz, Frank is hired to deliver a diverse range of packages - from pop princesses to priceless paintings.

Danielle Armstrong covered "Working Man" for the opening credits of Transporter: The Series. This version was arranged by Jamie Forsyth. This song is original from Canadian group Rush, written by Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee in 1974, and released in their first album called it "Rush". See more »
Firstly, I'd like to say the only good thing I've seen by watching the first episode is Chris Vance's fighting.
Bullets nor rear ending and squishing other cars doesn't even scratch Frank's car. The script and acting of most of the actors are just terrible. Some scenes are just too predictable especially the excessive nudeness which I predicted would be seen often in this series just after seeing the opening scene.
I noticed the inspector from the original series is playing the same role. I'm just wondering why the other aspects couldn't be brought here. It doesn't have to be as good as the movies. Just better than this.
I hope it gets better in time.
