Personally I enjoy exploring the issues of Time Travel. There are many shows on this season each with their own perspective. Travelers is unique in that the show's time period is fixed in the present though the characters come from the future. There is only a hint of what the future will bring, but the characters definitely think that some tinkering is required.
"The Director" is a phantom pulling the strings though it does not bode well that this person uses/abuses children to pass time critical messages to the team. We are left to wonder if our supposed benefactors are actually working toward an improved version of time to come.
Though the characters are still developing, several have stood out with their very strong and personal performances dealing with real world issues. As a consumer, I appreciate an actor that can have me empathise with their scripted issues and objectives. There are several on this team that resonate the qualities that stimulate audiences to return.
Not a high budget effort but an interesting and engaging twist on what often can be a confusing and self-destructing topic. The first season, along with the support of the producers will give a good indication of this product's "future".
