    Does anyone know where the library scene was filmed in the first episode? Was it Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal or the Convention Center?

    • Rob Telford

      That had me intrigued too. After a bit of detective work, it’s the City Centre Library in Surrey BC

      • whatsfilming

        Thanks Rob, good find! The Surrey City Centre is a very popular filming location lately.

  • Angelyne Després

    Why do the travelers believe in god since they are from the future where we should have had evolved to stop believing in witchcraft. The show lost me on episode 6 were religion kicked in and became invasive in every episodes. Sci-Fi and religion is such a bad combination.

    • JoAnna

      Are you trolling? WTF are you talking about? There is no religion in this show. Are you talking about the “Director” ROFL. The Director is the computer program that tells them what to do. Everything is decided by the director who has calculated the best strategy. Trying paying attention next time. There’s a big difference.

    Was the farm also in Continuum? I see another farm house shared with Timeless and Travelers (where the kidnapped boy is held) and Timeless meets The Lone Ranger.

    • whatsfilming

      Just looked into this – the farmhouse in episode 1×12 of Timeless is at Blieberger Farm in Langley. It gets used very often – it can be seen in X-Files, Once Upon a Time and Dirk Gently to name a few. I’m not sure about the other one – will have to investigate that further!

        Thanks so much
