Hundreds of years from now, the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. These Travelers assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions in order to save humanity from a terrible future. These travelers are: FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, the team's leader; Marcy, a young, intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David; Trevor, a high school quarterback; Carly, a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip, a heroin-addicted college student. Armed only with their knowledge of history and an archive of social media profiles, the travelers discover that 21st century lives and relationships are as much a challenge as their high-stakes missions.

Fantastic series, can't believe I'm just finding out about it now!
17 October 2017 | by justin-74-890942See all my reviews

Clicked on this randomly because I was out of things to watch on Netflix and the description was interesting, pretty sure I would quit after the first episode.

BOY was I wrong. Hooked me right out of the gate with it's quirky premise and promise of a rich backstory, the acting was great and the writing was tight. Best off, over the first season run, it was NEVER predictable and always had me guessing.

I'd describe it as 12 Monkeys meets Fringe with a Stargate attitude. If those are things you like, you're in for a treat!
