    The show seems faster, brighter and more entertaining than most of the serials that beat it to the punch this fall.

    A pretty nifty, if completely insane, suspense/conspiracy/ chase/road adventure.
  3. The first episode of “Traveler” is well made and quite gripping.
  4. 60
    The show... can easily be enjoyed simply as a fairly proficient thriller, pushing the kind of buttons that Alfred Hitchcock used to push with such films as "North by Northwest" -- although here they're pushed with much less artfulness and finesse.
  5. 40
    After 24, Lost, Heroes and Prison Break, prime time is overstocked with such sprawling, demanding plots.
  6. 40
    The problem is, at the end of the pilot, one simply doesn't care enough about Jay and Tyler to go on the lam with them each week.

It is fresh, and new, and the anxiety from watching it as you sit on the edge of your seat waiting for your heroes to find a way to free themselves from a conspiracy is riveting. I would love more character development, not just character history, but just eccentricities that give them more spark. Nevertheless, an amazing show Expand

    One of the best shows on TV. Not being a slave to its success like 24, it is much fresher and in some ways more believable - but still fun.

The characters have been idiots from the start of this predictable and very unbelievable plot against them by unknown forces of evil. How unimaginative can the creators of these shows be? Does anyone writing for tv have an original idea anymore? Expand
