'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping The Music

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping Th
Transporter: The Series gets a little bit glamorous this week, as Frank Martin has the job of protecting a celebrity that other folks would rather see deceased. As his assignments go, this one is fairly rote, and so it's not surprising that the script is, too.

But if that's not surprising, neither are the qualities which redeem "Diva," because they're the same ones that have always made this series great: first-rate fight choreography and the ability of Chris Vance to convey things that we're pretty sure weren't scripted.

Frank is in Prague, because for whatever reason he's stuck handling...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'We Go Back' - What
This week's installment of Transporter: The Series is one of executive producer Frank Spotnitz's favorites, and it's not hard to see why.

Have another flashback to Frank's military history, and it's not a good one. Our hero and two of his colleagues are pinned down by heavy fire, at least until Frank can procure a car - no surprise, it's an Audi. U...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: '2B Or Not 2B' - Frank Martin's Second Act

November 30th, 2014 7:01am EST
Transporter: The Series
Frank Martin is back - actually, thanks to American broadcasting schedules he never left - but it's a brave new world for Transporter: The Series. With one heck of a first-season finale plus a changed creative team behind the scenes, things look very different in Frank's universe.

We open in North Africa some two years earlier, where Frank is calmly (is he ever anything less than calm?) rescuing French intelligence agent Caterina Boldieu (new series regular Violante Placido) from captivity, having not yet learned to mistrust French intelligence. A car chase ensues, followed by Frank dispen...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'Cherchez La Femme' - A Stunning Season Finale

November 23rd, 2014 9:08am EST
Transporter: The Series
You know how season finales always want to be big, bad and better than ever? Transporter: The Series is all that and then some as it finishes out its first cycle. It delivers the spectacle of a season ender - including some of the finest action to be broadcast on television - and underneath that there's equally brilliant acting. It all comes together almost perfectly in the best finale you could ask for.

Frank's last package is an upstart hacker who goes by the street name Jet (played by Chelsea Hobbs); she's run off on her client, and he's been hired to retrieve her. As he completes deliv...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'Give The Guy A Hand' - Somebody's Last Laugh

November 23rd, 2014 9:01am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Give The Guy A Hand
Transporter: The Series is closing in on its destination, and it's finishing up the season almost exactly as it began the run: by mixing up a cocktail somewhere between nerve-wracking and not so serious. With "Give the Guy a Hand," things are more for laughs and there isn't any real shock value unless you haven't seen a literal hand before. But there's the usual amount of first-class fights and a reminder that certain geographic locations may be hazardous to your health.

The last time Frank Martin was in Toronto, there was a fight and then a hockey game broke out. After this, maybe he shou...

'Transporter: The Series': Life Lessons From Frank Martin
On TNT's Transporter: The Series, Frank Martin (Chris Vance) is one of TV's biggest action heroes. And while he's been delivering packages around the world, he's also taught us quite a few things about life. In honor of tonight's Transporter season finale, here are some of the many lessons we've learned from Frank.

01) Set ground rules (even if you're never going to follow them). It's important to know your boundaries, despite the fact that you will break at least one - and likely more than one - of them over and over again, to the point where we're not sure why you even bother repeating t...
