Travelers S2 eps 5-12
Well, that was one the crappiest finales I’ve seen years, a long, depressing 40 minutes of total bollocks, combined with an omniscient, perfect arsehole villain, who kept pulling new abilities out of his backside.
So, in short you have this guy who has kidnapped, tortured and would have killed the team, engineered a plague to kill 30% of the world’s population, pulled the trigger on ordering a kid’s assassination Terminator-style, violated the minds of mental patients - causing severe brain damage - and then dumped them on the streets. Who’s idea of being ‘strong and stable’ is to kidnap everyone the team care about and severely fuck with them. And after doing all that, in this season finale? There is no pay-off, zero! It’s utterly unsatisfying, not at all entertaining and is your more-or-less standard ‘bad’ ending cranked up to 11 but done really, really badly.
The eps before that were generally far better, but such is the cataclysmic awfulness of the finale that it reverberates backwards to retroactively wreck all that preceded it too.
Whatever S3 does, its first opener is likely to be a massive, massive cheat.
