Too much sexy stuff to relax and enjoy.

Lots of sexual situations with character marcie. Side boob and bare back shown. Multiple characters in bras and underwear. Very disappointed because ruins an otherwise good show. Season 2 contains more sexuality than season 1 so far. Sexuality of teenagers shown multiple times. Really uncomfortable seeing a teenager in her bra.

The show is a story that slowly spins out of control. I won't spoil the ending for the person who wants to watch it after this review, but keep in mind their is a steady smearing of faith and all intimate relationships fall apart. There is a twist, but overall the mission takes the forefront, and relationships fail. The upside to it was that the previous reviews were correct about it not being dark or crude. There is still profanity, shirtless scenes, blood, ect, but the tone doesn't stoop to such a primal level. Finally, thank you Commonsense Media. I'm grateful for this resource

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Surprisingly low-key for such a high-concept show, this series offers a good mixture of suspense and personal drama. With five characters to feature, each with different lives and personal problems, as well as a mission of the week to focus on, the scripts do an excellent job juggling the separate elements and keeping all the relationships easy to follow. The wide variety of characters means the show gets to explore many different kinds of stories: young love, marital drama, and family conflict, in addition to the more action-focused plotlines.

Travelers isn't groundbreaking television by any means, but there's a real humanity to the characters that gives it an unexpected gravity. What's particularly refreshing is that even though Travelers takes its premise seriously, it never becomes self-serious, and in this genre that isn't always an easy feat.
