I caught the first episode of Continuum last night. I liked the first episode and I think I'll stay current with the first season.

 

Here is what its about:

 

When a group of fanatical terrorists escape their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, they inadvertently take City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron with them. Trapped in a more “primitive” past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department to try to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.

 

Continuum stars Rachel Nichols (Alias, Criminal Minds, G.I. Joe) as Kiera, Victor Webster (Castle, Melrose Place) as detective Carlos Fonnegra - who Kiera allies with - and Erik Knudsen (Jericho, Scream 4) as Alec Sadler, the teenaged tech genius who could be Kiera’s key to saving the future.

 

Kiera is a much better character than the always crying wrinkly foreheaded Charlie from Revolution.

Just go download it Sledge, the whole first season is up on torrent sites. Like Sanctuary this is another Canadian show that SyFy picked up after the fact (I think this is why it got it's second season). I plan on dling it so as not to wait for each episode every week because the previews caught my interest.

I like this show a lot.

 

It makes you think, who is the good guys and who is the bad.

 

The future government is bad, but the rebels methods are worse

 

The main character is likeable, and though very attractive, she isn't a sex symbol, but a very respectable lead

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't realize it was another canadian show. I miss Sanctuary. That show was great. :\

 

I only found out about it being a Canadian show when I went to download it the other day on eztv. Saw the whole first season and was like "WTH it just started airing". So I went on over to wikipedia and found out the info. I just hope this doesn't end up like Sanctuary and getting cancelled after 4 seasons.

 

I was beyond pissed when I heard Sanctuary was cancelled. The show had so much more potential to just up and end it like that (but that's a topic for another time).

I'll probably end up watching the series on Mondays so the show will get ratings. Maybe that will help convince the Canadian production company that they have a strong international market. Besides, theres nothing to watch on mondays anymore.

 

I didn't even know sanctuary was canceled until sometime late last year when I was wondering when the new season was going to start. It pissed me off so much.

She has sex written all on her suit and her hair and her lips and her eyes and that look of hers, Kite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #kidding

 

But yeah, I think it's very science fiction to have a second U in the name. I'll check this out.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

I guess Xi: Continuum's name might have been inspired by this show.

 

The following is Off Topic.

Last time in Xi: Continuum there was still bombs in The Continuum that had to be deactivated that Attention Span Zero had placed there. The previous bomb was in a former Axiom member Stapler from the first Xi. Then more recently Sandboxx (A French Canadian member of AS0) was kidnapped.

Damn, I'm so use to Off Topic & Spoilers tag that I'm starting to miss them.

 

I'd consider watching this if there was an online version.

I've never heard of "Xi: Continuum" is it a show or a novel or something else? :confused:

 

The codes are still there, but some are busted. Like the offtopic code doesn't work correctly at all right now.

 

The list of our custom codes are on this button:

I saw this on last night, the episode started with something happening to those people who were about to be executed. Time passes and stuff happens and I fell asleep by accident. Is that the first episode?

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.

      Netflix is making the equivilant of Mythbusters 2. Yay. I've been needing a mythbusters fix and I'm glad these 3 are coming back to entertain us.
