    Curious if anyone is watching the science fiction series Travelers on Netflix. They've just released Season 2. It stars Eric McCormack, who's filming concurrently with the revival of Will and Grace.

    The set-up is familiar but with a compelling twist. Volunteers from a dystopian future travel back in time to change the past. The caveat here is that physical matter cannot be transported, only the consciousness of each traveler, which arrives to possess the body of someone already living here in the present day. So our five main characters are a motley crew indeed: an FBI agent (McCormack), a single mom, a heroin addict, a teenage cage-fighter, and a developmentally-challenged woman.

    It's a simple premise but quite well done. I'm enjoying it immensely, and it's nice to see McCormack exercising his dramatic chops. Anyone else watching?
