    If Continuum doesn't aim to soar, it executes the basics well.

    The pilot looks pretty impressive in the future, but after that, it's a fairly standard copshow, other than the bionic-type gizmos Kiera brings to the fight.

    When I first started watching this, it looked so original. Continuum is a true sci-fi show. The acting is good. Continuum is set in 2012. An organization, called Liber8, seeks to eradicate innocent people. It involves good versus evil. There are realistic elements. Expand

    While some of the complaints about acting and "one-dimensional" storytelling may have been valid after one or two episodes, after watching the first season on Netflix I have come to appreciate the multifaceted characters and deep story. Can't wait for the story to unfold! It is definitely NOT a fail. The characters really developed in the first season and the production value is high, plus the story is like a rabbit hole that continues to get deeper. I will continue with Continuum. Expand

    I personally am a fan. I also have already watched the whole season on-line(since it is originally a Canadian show). It's my newer Sci-Fi fix especially since Fringe is over! I suggest you at least give it a try. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I do like the show but there is one major problem with it. The show seems to have violated the Information Paradox. One example is Julian's tattoo. He sees it on Kagame's arm but later we learn that Kagame got the idea for the tattoo from an elderly Julian he meets in jail, in the future. So, where did the idea of the tattoo come from? Nowhere. Expand

    The lead actress is appealing, and I'm interested in the time travel implications of certain actions. It's not brain-dead TV like so much else we're seeing. Let's go. Expand

    The show is very promising and starts out great. Sadly this show some what fails to live up to its promise and the first season gets gradually worse as it progresses. Expand

    While production values are pretty good the politics behind this show are frankly reprehensible. Premise: in the year 2077 the governments of the Western world are indebted to the corporations that bailed them out financially. As a result things like freedom of assembly and freedom of expression no longer exist. People fighting against this fascist system are labeled "terrorists" and our protagonist is a cop defending this totalitarian regime.
    The "character development" is monochromatic and stupid; good guys are pretty, bad guys are ethnic or have a scar or something. Good guys protect an oppressive government and bad guys think they don't have to obey corporate interests.
    "Continuum" is just shy of blatant NAZI propaganda.
    This show is offensive. It bodes poorly for the fate of the modern world.
