Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season!

December 9, 2014 // 0 Comments

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season It appears that December is the new August, not November! Finally fans of Syfy’s Continuum (actually Showcase’s) starring Rachel Nichols can rejoice with knowledge the show will be extended. However, its fourth season will also be its last and it will only be 6 episodes long. Just enough to roundup the storyline I suppose. Rachel Nichols has already confirmed the news on Twitter. She stated the following “Yes, the words LAST SEASON ...

William Shatner joins Haven

November 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

William Shatner joins Haven I used to put up the odd review of Haven every now and then. It mostly depended on whether an episode was any good. Quite frankly the last really good episode was the finale of season 3. Afterwards, too many mysteries were solved to my disappointment and too many secondary characters were killed off. Now during its fifth season the show has been hurting due to negative fan backlash. The ratings have also steadily dropped. That may change with the inclusion ...

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review

June 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review Season 3 of Continuum has ended and oh boy did this show change for the better. While I won’t say that I understood all of plotlines (we are dealing with time travel) at least the disorder from season 2 is gone. Continuum season 3 has ended about a week back for those watching on Showcase, but those watching on Syfy will have to wait one more week. Next to Orphan Black Continuum feels like a breath of fresh air. Yes sure it tries to dazzle with ...

Continuum S3Ep8 So Do Our Minutes Hasten Review

May 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

This week’s episode off Continuum brings the story back to 2014 and puts us right back in the action. ‘So Do Our Minutes Hasten’ is a suspenseful episode that at times feels overwhelming. Too many times I kind of lost the plot. The episode in that regards reminds me of some of the weaker episodes from season 2. Nonetheless powerful performances by Victor Webster as Detective Fonnegra and Luvia Petersen Jasmine Garza make up for the downsides. So Do Our Minutes Hasten So Do Our ...

Continuum S3Ep7 Waning Minute Review

May 5, 2014 // 0 Comments

So far I haven’t been much of a fans of the third season of Continuum. This season is a lot better than season 2 but sadly it makes unique mistakes of its own. I dare say I feel far less invested in the characters than I did before. Both Kiera and Alec (both versions) have become somewhat unlikable and Carlos is sadly too often absent. For all I know this may be by design, a cop from the future wearing a skin-tight body suit with which she can overcome super villains is only going to ...

Continuum S3Ep2 Minute Man Review

March 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

The third season of Continuum is now in full swing with the episode Minute Man. Last week’s episode felt like a necessary reboot when it showed Alec and Kiera travelling back one week to undo the damage they did at the end of season 2. Kiera has a second agenda, she now works for the freelancers and hell-bent on stopping both Alec’s from making anymore mistakes. On top of that she has to solve a murder. That of her own, for this she enlists the help of Carlos who in my opinion was ...

Continuum S3Ep1 Minute To Minute Review

March 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

During the season 2 finale of Continuum and the preview of season 3 that I posted a few days back I went on for a long time about the deficiencies of season 2. Afterwards I promised myself that I won’t mention them again and look as season 3 with a clean slate. Well, I have already broken that promise and not because the season 3 première is so awful but because it addresses a lot of the issues as well as giving the show a new impetus. You could almost call it a series reboot, but we ...

Continuum Season 3 Preview!

March 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

With all the episodes of Person of Interest, Agents of SHIELD and Almost Human you would almost forget that there are other shows. One of those is Showcases’s/Syfy Channel’s Continuum which will be back for its third season on March 16th. That’s right, on Sunday evening. I only heard of the show just a day before season 1 was supposed to start airing. I really do wish Syfy Channel would promote it more. That said, the March 16th release is for Canada only. So unless you got a ...

Revolution S2Ep3 ‘Love Story’ Review

October 10, 2013 // 0 Comments

With this weeks episode, ‘Love Story’, Revolution continues to improve in quality. The show keeps handing out some hard punches but at the cost of a very fast past that sadly causes us to lose a character that was only recently introduced. As explained in the review of the previous episode Revolution has now been divided into three main storylines. I will briefly explain the events of all three. Rachel, Miles and Aaron; this is still the ‘main’ storyline. Last week ...

Continuum S2Ep11 Second Guess Review!

July 22, 2013 // 0 Comments

Another episode of Continuum has aired so we are up for another review. Just like last week’s episode we had another strong showing this week. It did not make the mistake of introducing too much drama and yet it addressed many issues that had bugged fans of the show for some time. It’s only downside is that it brings back plot points that have long been forgotten and so at times it can be a little bit confusing. Second Guess The episode starts like all Continuum episodes with ...

Continuum S2Ep10 ‘Second Wave’ Review!

July 15, 2013 // 2 Comments

Second Wave After this weeks 10th episode of Continuum’s second season there will only be 3 more left until the season ends. So far the season has been pretty much a roller-coaster ride when it comes to plot development and quality. Luckily this weeks episode seems to set the stage for the seasons inevitable conclusion and it does this well. Kiera (Rachel Nichols) manages to capture Garza (Luvia Petersen) with Alec’s new Arc program that pretty much sucks in all real-time data ...

Continuum S2E9 ‘Seconds’ Review!

July 8, 2013 // 1 Comment

Mere seconds to boredom… For those who have kept up with reading Continuum episode reviews know that I think season 2 has been a let down. Sure some episodes were great but the series suffers with its poor drama and plot twists that are all over the map. This weeks episode entitled ‘Seconds’ is pretty much at the bottom of the pile. It starts on the wrong footing by pretending that the excellent episode 8 never occurred. No reference is made about Garza abducting Alec or ...

Continuum season 2 episode 8 ‘Second Listen’ Review!

June 17, 2013 // 0 Comments

Second Listen… So far everyone has been a bit underwhelmed by the second season. Sure there have been a number of ups (Travis decapitating organized crime bosses) but for the most part the plots feel disjointed and ill though out. This weeks episode ‘Second Listen’ is by far a more steady episode and sets the beginning for the season to conclude in a spectacular fashion. Plot outline… Kiera’s suspicions, confirmed finally; there were time jumpers before she and ...

Continuum S2Ep5 ‘Second Opinion’ Review!

May 27, 2013 // 0 Comments

Alessandro Juliani as Cognitive Therapist Continuum is back from a two-week hiatus. The episode before the break (Second Skin) was probably the low point in the series so far. Alas this weeks episode entitled ‘Second Opinion’ is better but not very exciting. It feels a bit like a bottle show in that there few special effects or action scenes. However, this is made up by the drama which at least allows the character Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) express repressed sentiments that ...
