'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Boom' - Season 2's Biggest Bang

January 18th, 2015 9:15am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Boom' - Season 2's
If this week's Transporter: The Series teaches us anything, it's that Frank Martin needs to be a little more aware of what's going on with his packages. We know the rule is "never open the package," but "Boom" proves that you don't need to open it to know there's something that might get you blown up.

Despite the adverse situation, our hero makes the best of it in an outstanding story from new showrunner Frank Spotnitz that reminds us why we fell in love with Frank Martin in the first place, and proves that this show is still very much alive and worth fighting for.

Welcome to the Sahara D...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Euphro' - The Tarconi Episode

January 11th, 2015 9:02am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Euphro' - The Tarco
So far in this season of Transporter: The Series, Frank's old friend Inspector Marcel Tarconi has only shown up when somebody else needs something. That changes with "Euphro," which makes Tarconi the client as he teams up with Frank to battle a drug smuggler and the inevitable police corruption.

Action opens in Belarus, where Tarconi is in a van full of troops on the way to arrest the aforementioned smuggler. Reichenberg, who's so low that he's selling counterfeit medicine to sick children.

The troops arrive, but as they raid the target location, Tarconi has a bad feeling about this - one...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Chimera' - Working For The Man

January 4th, 2015 9:03am EST
Transporter: The Series
Frank Martin has certainly come a long way. He began Transporter: The Series picking up escaped criminals, and now this week, he's taking an assignment for the FBI in Chicago. Yes, there's a very good explanation for this, and there's a very good episode that comes out of it, too.

The Bureau has enlisted Frank to get a chemical weapon out of the hands of the Chinese mafia, who have a laboratory in the back of a restaurant in (where else?) Chinatown. Expository narration that we don't really need, and which contains terrible food-related puns, walks us through several false starts that all ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'T2' - Frank's Tragic Romance

December 28th, 2014 9:06am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'T2' - Frank's Tragi
Despite the title, this week's episode of Transporter: The Series has nothing to do with the sci-fi classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day. But like that movie, it has its own good versus evil double act, as Frank tangles with fellow transporter and nemesis Olivier Dassin, and also meets the young upstart who becomes the replacement - at least in theory - for the beloved Dieter.

We're in Poland, where Caterina still hasn't adjusted to Frank's driving, but she's brought him to meet a billionaire who wants a meeting enough to pay dearly for it. But in the lobby, they walk into Dassin (Dhaffer L'...

'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. Another glimpse into the past of Frank Martin continues to flesh out how he became the man we know and love, while there's a whopper of a performance from Chris Vance and a few tiny bits and pieces of what this new-look series is supposed to be.

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...
