Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron - Family Time - Continuum

Continuum Family Time Preview ***UPDATED***

Family Time is the second to last episode of Continuum and it seems that it will try to unravel the multitude of plot line and questions that have arisen from the previous 8 episodes. Liber8 and its leader Kagame (Tony Amendola) have finally concluded that Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) has managed to defeat because of the help she got from the present day Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), as such they will try and eliminate him (not shown in the screen below). Alec has retrieved...

Continuum Ep-8 Playtime Review!

Continuum Ep-8 Playtime Review!

This week’s episode of Continuum was the first after a number of great episodes which ‘missed’ the mark. As this being episode 8 and with only 2 more episode to go there was probably a need by the creative staff to fill up the plot in order to lay the groundwork for the season cliffhanger. However, its execution feels a little underdone even if it succeeds in drawing two background characters into the foreground. Playtime does succeed in filling up...

Continuum episode 8 ‘Playtime’ Preview! **UPDATE Promo trailer**

Continuum episode 8 ‘Playtime’ Preview! **UPDATE Promo trailer**

Fans of Continuum are slowly starting to wonder why Showcase hasn’t renewed Continuum for a second season, normally this is done when the show is still airing in order to show confidence. However, as Continuum will have a short first season of only 10 episodes it is actually well possible that the decision could be delayed by as much as a few months until production for a second season has to be green lighted. The ratings for continuum hardly tell the complete...

Continuum “The Politics of Time” Review!

Continuum “The Politics of Time” Review!

Many viewers of Continuum commenting on bulletin boards on the internet have commented that the show isn’t as good as Fringe, they mostly complain about the fact that there is less humor and horror. I think Continuum is still finding its way with those things and I think there is a risk that with too much humor the basic premise behind the series will be in jeopardy. At this moment the threat that Liber8 poses, the background story of events in the future surrounding Kiera and...

Continuum ‘The Politics of Time’ Preview!

Next Sunday the seventh episode of Continuum will air. After the appearance of Kagame this show will yet again go into new direction as Kiera (Rachel Nichols) gets sucked into the politics of 2012 when her partner Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) is accused of murder. This episode thus promises to show background on Carlos and perhaps also tell us why his VPD partner Betty Robertson (Jennifer Spence) has a crush on him. Here is the synopsis for ‘The Politics of Time’… The high-stakes Union Election gives...

Continuum Time’s Up Review!

Continuum Time’s Up Review!

The sixth episode of continuum continues with the new direction that episode 5 started. Now that Edouard Kagame (Tony Amendola) has rejoined Liber8 they have changed their strategy. No longer do they use self-defeating scare tactics but instead they have opted to promote Liber8’s manifesto through manipulating the Occupy like movement seen in the back story. After Liber8 kidnaps a CEO Carlos and Kiera are put on the trail of Liber8 by one of the protestor’s, Alec is reluctant to...

Continuum ‘A Test of Time’ Review!

Continuum ‘A Test of Time’ Review!

After four episodes where Continuum has managed to assert itself as the thrilling, clever sci-fi show that it is we now have the first episode, entitled ‘A Test Of Time’, in which its boundaries are explored. One of the earliest questions raised about the concept behind Continuum was the so-called ‘Time Paradox’ or grandfather paradox. What happens if you travel back in time and kill your grandfather? Do you see to exist as well? This episode as did the previous...

Continuum “A Test of Time” Preview!

The next episode of Continuum starring Rachel Nichols is entitled A Test Of Time and will air on June 24th. The last episode of Continuum was quite good but ratings have been in steady decline since the shows pilot and I dare say it is already in the danger zone. Here is the promo video for …A Test of Time’… Here is the synopsis… Kagame’s return begins with a reset of Liber8’s agenda, away from violence and towards blending into the...

Continuum “Matter of Time” Review!

Continuum “Matter of Time” Review!

Continuum’s fourth episode is entitled ‘Matter of Time’ and is in my opinion on par with the quality experienced from the first episode. This episode also sees the return of Tony Amendola as Edouard Kagame, the leader of terrorist group Liber8. As for the plot of ‘Matter of Time’… The episode opens with a flash forward to the 2077 time period, Kiera’s husband Greg has just gotten promoted when a terrorist attack takes out the city power supply, boasting that...

Continuum “Fast Times” Review!

Continuum “Fast Times” Review!

The second episode of Showcase’s new sci-fi show Continuum is entitled “Fast Times”, it seems that from the shows wiki-page that all episodes of the first season will be plays on the word time. Though there appears to be little connection with the title and the context of the episodes. The same goes for “Fast Times”. This episode continues where the pilot left off but it also makes some slight changes to the format, this isn’t unusual as a pilot must really...

Continuum ‘Fast Times’ Preview!

Continuum ‘Fast Times’ Preview!

Sunday the second episode of Continuum will air, and from what I have seen of the trailer (see below) and the synopsis is that this series is not planning on settling in and churning out 24-episode seasons for seven years but st instead seems hellbent on twisting and turning with the concept of time-travel. I just like it when some creative producer decides to screw with everybody’s heads. Well if that isn’t a ringing endorsement to go see the second episode then I don’t know...

Continuum “A Stitch in Time” Pilot Review!

Continuum “A Stitch in Time” Pilot Review!

Continuum continues where shows like Stargate, Fringe, The X-files, Sliders, Alcatraz and Total Recall 2070 went before it with principal filming being done in Vancouver, unlike the other shows it is also set in Vancouver, both in the year 2077 and in 2012. Continuum has however kind of slipped under the radar. Even though I first heard of it last summer I had totally forgotten about it until the day it aired. That said it was only aired in Canada, the...
