Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron. Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review

Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review

Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review Continuum is finally back for it’s last, and short 6 episode season. Simon Barry’s show entered the ratings doldrums after the disappointing second season. Sadly, Showcase and Syfy saw no other choice but to end the series with a 6 episode run to tie-up the storyline and not leave fans in the wind. Continuum lost a lot of viewers when it become less focused. There were too many secondary characters, secrets organizations and sudden plot developments to keep pace. The first thing I noticed watching the premiere of the fourth season was how focused it...

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 update season 4 - scarred inspector dillon

Continuum Update – so where the hell is Showcase’s last season?

Continuum Update During the last week or so a few people have emailed me on why I am not covering the new and last season of Continuum. The short questions is I am, there is simply nothing to report. Unlike previous seasons which aired during the summer months this last shortened season is scheduled to start on September 4th. I am pleased so many are still supporting this show and just like me are suffering from Continuum withdrawal symptoms. Sadly, the TV world is ruled by ratings. Continuum aired on Canada’s Showcase channel as well as on Syfy for the rest...

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 - Minute Man - Vancouver in 2067 not 2077

Continuum S3Ep2 Minute Man Review

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 underused during season 2 despite being one...

Continuum season 3 - minute to minute - Garza and Kiera try to escape

Continuum S3Ep1 Minute To Minute Review

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 will have to wait...

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...

Travis using his CMR - Continuum Second Wave

Continuum S2Ep10 ‘Second Wave’ Review!

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 of Vancouver. After Kiera’s run-in with Julian in the previous episode she is more than ever motivated to put a stop...

Continuum S2E9 ‘Seconds’ Review!

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 agent Gardner getting shot to death. Instead we are led to believe that the democratic people...

Dillon's replacement - Continuum

Continuum S2Ep5 ‘Second Opinion’ Review!

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 gave her a bit of color. All this is accomplished by a plot that focuses on a mole being present in the Vancouver police department that...

Continuum S2Ep3 ‘Second Thoughts’ Review!

Continuum S2Ep3 ‘Second Thoughts’ Review!

Last weeks episode of Continuum was hardly the shows best. The plot felt a bit too forced as the writers tried to push the characters into a new direction. Alec quitting his job to work for Kellog and Liber8 turning on each other are examples. However, against all odds this weeks episode of Continuum is able to capitalize on this new situation by seriously putting every character out of their comfort zone. I must warn anyone before viewing this episode, there is some serious violence, gore and mind-fucking going on in ‘Second Thoughts’. The plot of ‘Second Thoughts’… In a...

Continuum S2E2 ‘Split Second’ Review!

Continuum S2E2 ‘Split Second’ Review!

After viewing the second episode is this season of Continuum I have finally managed to find an episode that I honestly didn’t like. Just like season one’s weakest episode ‘Playtime’ this episode, entitled ‘Split Second’, is a bit out there… However, ‘Split Second’ is too convoluted and has too many arbitrary twists and turns to make it a really enjoyable showing. Split Second follows two storylines. The first is about Kiera and Carlos escorting Travis to a new prison after he killed six prisoners. Now, everyone knows that the trip won’t be without incident but I wasn’t expecting remotely controlled machine guns...
