Travelers 01x06 Helios

Related image

So we have a bunch of nutsos about to drink... something- in anticipation of the Rapture. But they get overwritten and are Travelers now. Our team meanwhile are undertaking a mission- apparently the overriding reason they've come back in time- to prevent an asteroid- Helios 685- from devastating the earth. We see that the team has a little mantra, reflecting that they risk their own butts to fix the past. Or, to alter it- I mean, if the asteroid hit earth, is that meant to be, and are they doing the wrong thing by changing that? 

The best part of this, by the way, are the senior citizens packing assault weapons and the elderly lady being the top sniper. 

So we're back to the antimatter facility and Kyra Zagorsky is fabulous as Delaney. Carly shows that she's getting attached to Jeffrey. 

An elderly woman named Bloom is about to end her life, but she gets taken over tooand Traveler'd. 

Mac's team infiltrates the facility.

Ooh Bloom is older and knows Trevor (they're both older in the future). And she relates that they're not exactly popular in the future right now- apparently there are debates going on over their actions. Mac says you know who abducted my team? She does know, apparently- and also if their mission succeeds then they're all done. 

Bloom shares that everything up to now has been preparation. If they successfully deflect the asteroid all the plagues and wars that led to their timeline won't - and they may not be born. 

Bloom hits up some weed for pain control since her body has cancer.   

This is wild. I love how involved the operation is. 

 I love how the senior citizens are the reinforcements. 

I missed it on my first watch but Mac and Carly really have a thing. 

Ooh the blast radius will decimate everything nearby. 

I wish they could waive Protocol 3 because they're sitting ducks. The Travelers who took over the seniors are shooting not to kill, and the military are taking them out. 

The engineer orders MacLaren to get away. Oh, so she forced the Director's hand? By leaving herself behind (and getting shot) she makes him take over the military- and have those guys complete the mission. Just to save delaney? Or does she know things? 


  1. Sound interesting :-D I really need to check it out!

  2. It does sound exciting! Loved the review❤️

  3. Although you write a good review, I watch very little TV so I won't be seeing it - maybe hubby will; he watches lots more than me. You clearly enjoy it! Thanks for the visit - and I'm here to push Ninth House a little higher on your list :)

  4. Es una buena serie. Los coreanos sacaron una serie muy similar que se llama el mito de sisifo que esta en neflix. Te mando un beso.

  5. I have to find this series! It sounds like a lot of fun

  6. I think this series asks a lot of ethical questions. Is it okay to change the past to give the future and better future? Or, are you just making someone else suffer so the future doesn't? I really like the series because of these questions. I'm still mad they canceled itl

  7. LOL at the senior citizen reinforcements!

  8. Reminds me of Death Wish IV or V where he's helping out a bunch of senior citizens (he was in his 70's at the time too).

  9. "The best part of this, by the way, are the senior citizens packing assault weapons and the elderly lady being the top sniper."
    That's how you do it! 😂👍
