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?

      The season finale just ended this past monday. I started this series and gave it a couple eps. I almost dropped it, but by the third ep shit started going down and I got sucked into the plot. This was a surprisingly great series with excellent acting. Its so refreshing to see a 1 off series like this. I don't think there is going to be a season 2 and if there is it would probably ruin the experience. This played out like an anime in a sense. It started and finished the entire plot. There was no filler episodes and everything tied in together. I hope this inspires AMC to make more stand alone short series. Hell, I wish more of america tv would follow this direction instead of endless reality shows or drawing out a series so long that it gets canceled without a finale. This show proves its possible for US tv to actually give us a story in a complete season. Well done AMC.  I can only compare this to Stephen King mini series, except better. Now I wish all those old Stephen King mini series were actually given the full season treatment like this.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      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.
