Showcase puts final season Continuum online!

Showcase puts final season Continuum online!

Showcase puts final season Continuum online! In a surprise move Canadian broadcaster Showcase placed the première episode of Continuum’s final season online. Continuum is of course the show that stars Rachel Nichols as the time-travelling police officer from the year 2077. She must attempt to stop terrorist from changing history. The show was co-developed by Syfy who won’t air the première until September 4th. Showcase’s move may be an attempt to make its online media channels more popular so to be more competitive with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. Together with Continuum they have also released the première episodes of Mr. Robot and the reboot...

William B. Davis in Continuum Season 4 trailer

Continuum Season 4 Trailer Released!

Finally Syfy and Showcase have started their promotion of the upcoming last season of Continuum. With just over a month away from release I started to fear the producers wanted to bury this show quickly. Luckily that is not the case, but promotion is a problem. Continuum has been cancelled, after the upcoming 6 episodes it is truly over. However, I am eager to watch the last season and discover how show runner Simon Barry intends it to end. Below you can watch the 30 second teaser trailer courtesy of TVLine.com – Enjoy! Continuum Season 4 Trailer My opinion of the...

Continuum renew for shortened 4th season! Continuum cast

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season!

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 and ONLY SIX EPISODES are a disappointment to many, but look at the bright side: CONTINUUM gets a proper ending!”. I am still...

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review - Erik Knudsen as Evil Alec Sadler Dying

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review

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 some good Science Fiction but it manages...

Continuum S3Ep8 So Do Our Minutes Hasten Review - Garza (Luvia Petersen) beats up a navy seal

Continuum S3Ep8 So Do Our Minutes Hasten Review

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 Minutes Hasten starts in the 2077 timeline. Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is tasked with arresting her own mother...

Continuum S3Ep8 So Do Our Minutes Hasten Review

Continuum S3Ep7 Waning Minute Review

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 last for one season as a premise....

Continuum Season 3 - Erik Knudsen as Alec Sadler

Continuum Season 3 Preview!

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 subscription to Showcase or are willing to download an episode from the Internet...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron in 2077 - Continuum Second Guess

Continuum S2Ep11 Second Guess Review!

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 scenes from 2077. Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is troubled by headaches caused by her CMR. After questioning...

Continuum season 2 starts on Showcase tonight!

Continuum season 2 starts on Showcase tonight!

Tonight on Showcase Continuum will be back for its second season with the episode ‘Second Chances’. For those who don’t subscribe to Showcase, Syfy will start airing it from June 7th onward. Syfy Channel for that matter seems to have adopted Continuum as a show of its own. Season 1 may be best considered a rough diamond whose edges need to be smoothed. As it has been a somewhat disappointing year for Science-fiction on TV I am excited with Continuum’s attempt at boldly going were few shows dare to go. Here is a preview of tonight’s episode… Second Chances continues immediately were...

Continuum Season Finale Endtime Review!

Continuum Season Finale Endtime Review!

Endtime is the finale of the first season of Continuum. After ten episodes I can categorically say that I want more. Most TV-shows that are considered great have had worse quality first seasons than Continuum, Endtime is in fact the best TV hour since Game of Thrones season 2 episode ‘Blackwater’. I might add that though Continuum started out as a straightforward time-travel show this last episode of the first season is a real mind-fuck that not only sheds new light on earlier events but will also keep fans arguing until the second season. The plot of ‘End time’… The episode starts with Liber8...

Continuum Season 1 Finale ‘End Times’ Preview!

Next Sunday the last episode of the first season of Continuum will air on Showcase, the episode is entitled ‘End Times’. The story seems to deal with the possibility of altering history. We already know that the so-called grandfather paradox isn’t valid in the Continuum universe as Kellog’s grandmother was killed yet it didn’t influence his existence. Now, Kiera is going to try and prevent a terrorist attack from happening, and we are really going to find out whether an important event in history can be prevented. From the looks of the stills below and the previous promotional trailer we can see that...

Continuum Family Time Review!

Continuum Family Time Review!

Family Time is the ninth and second to last episode of continuum’s first season. Unlike previous episode it is set almost exclusively on Alec’s farm. The episode acts a jump-board to the season finale ‘Endtime’ of next week. As such it offers less action and more drama as multiple plot threads need to be advanced. The plot of Family Time… Carlos (Victor Webster) and Kiera (Rachel Nichols) have come to visit the farm of Ann Sadler and Roland Randol to investigate the purchase of 1500 kg of ammonium nitrate. Alec (Erik Knudsen) and Kiera are surprised to see each other but Alec diverts suspicion by stating he recognizes...

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 a message from his future self from Kiera’s implant that could explain why Liber8 travelled back in time and why...

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 its 43 minutes with a lot of plot development, just like the rest of Continuum this episode feels really tightly...

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 picture as those are just for Canada and the online income of this series is unknown to anyone but Showcase....

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