Transporter is an action-packed TV show that aired on Cinemax between 2012 and 2014. It starred the charismatic and rugged Chris Vance as Frank Martin, a highly skilled and professional driver hired to transport goods and people under any circumstances. The show follows Frank's adventures as he navigates dangerous situations, confronts hostile forces, and outwits his enemies all around Europe and beyond.

The premise of Transporter is simple yet thrilling. Each episode, Frank is given a task to transport a valuable or a person, and he must complete it without fail. However, his jobs often involve shady clients, powerful adversaries, and unexpected twists and turns along the way. Frank must use his keen sense of observation, quick reflexes, and martial arts prowess to stay alive and accomplish his missions.

Most episodes of Transporter have a self-contained storyline that can be enjoyed independently. However, there is also an overarching plot that develops over the course of the series, revealing more about Frank's mysterious past and his complicated relationships with certain characters. The show strikes a good balance between episodic and serialized storytelling, keeping things fresh and exciting without losing its coherence.

One of the highlights of Transporter is the action scenes. Chris Vance performs most of his own stunts, and his athleticism and fighting skills are impressive to watch. The show features a mix of car chases, hand-to-hand combat, gunfights, and explosive set pieces that are executed with flair and creativity. Moreover, the show's cinematography and editing are slick and dynamic, enhancing the adrenaline-fueled nature of the scenes.

Another strength of Transporter is its cast of supporting characters. Although Frank is the main focus of the show, he interacts with a diverse range of people, some of which become recurring allies or foes. Notably, the character of Inspector Tarconi, played by François Berléand, has a strong rapport with Frank and provides comic relief and emotional grounding to the show. Other notable characters include Delia, a feisty hacker who helps Frank occasionally, and Carla, a femme fatale who shares a complicated history with him.

Besides the action and the characters, Transporter also benefits from its international settings. The show is filmed in various European locations, such as Paris, Berlin, Nice, and Amsterdam, among others. Each episode showcases the culture, landmarks, and atmosphere of the respective city, adding an extra layer of immersion and authenticity.

In terms of flaws, Transporter has some weaknesses that may detract from its appeal. For example, some of the plotlines are predictable or formulaic, relying on familiar tropes and clichés of the action genre. Additionally, the show's treatment of women can be questionable at times, with some female characters being reduced to damsels in distress or sexual objects. Furthermore, the show's tone can be uneven, oscillating between seriousness and lightheartedness in a way that may not suit all viewers.

Overall, however, Transporter is a fun and engaging TV show that delivers on its promise of pulse-pounding action and international intrigue. Chris Vance's charismatic performance as Frank Martin makes him a likable and compelling protagonist, and the supporting cast and guest stars add flavor and depth to the world. Whether you are a fan of car chases, espionage thrillers, or just want to see some exciting fight scenes, Transporter is a show worth checking out.

Transporter is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on October 18, 2014.
