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 Kiera her first taste of contemporary political intrigue.  But issues of trust and loyalty come up for Kiera as evidence...

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 help Kiera after he has learned that his stepbrother Julian took part in it. Alec’s stepfather Roland also has a larger...

Continuum ‘Time’s Up’ Preview!

Continuum is going on a brief hiatus and won’t be back until July 8th for the episode entitled Time’s Up. Here is the episodes synopsis… Kagame pursues the first step of his new agenda – winning over the intellectuals and the grassroots dissenters.

This show is blessed with the fact that...

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 two with a scene in 2077, Kiera is after Liber8 but only belatedly recognises that their next terrorist target is...

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 community and fostering their revolution through co-opting existing structures. But they have a vulnerability – the possibility that if their ancestors,...

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 it isn’t a problem he slowly counts down from 10 after which the power is restored, Greg states that to...

Continuum “Wasting Time” Preview!

Next Sunday the third episode of Continuum will, from the looks of the stills and the promo video it will have a bit more drama, also the character of Kellog, who is a member of Liber8, is to have a central role. Here is the plot synopsis for Wasting Time… In episode three, ‘Wasting Time’ Kyra and Carlos investigate a series of mysterious murders in which victims have been drained of endocrine fluid only to discover that the crimes were committed by Liber8 in an effort to save Travis, their leader. Kellog tries to make a truce with Kiera by delivering her a...

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 shine but the changes both fix problems from the pilot and creates new ones. As for the plot… The episode at...

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 what is. So go see it Sunday!!!. Here is the synopsis… Kiera tries to find the members of Liber8 before they...

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 rest of us will have to wait a bit. After a spectacular year in which four new sci-fi shows aired (Alphas,...
