8This series is very promising, not the least because it is set in Vancouver. I really like Rachel Nichols. I had this feeling that I had seen her before, and sure enough, it turned out that she was the Orion cadet in Star Trek. She also has a passing resemblance to Jodie Foster, which is a real recommendation for her although I guess that's not relevant. The premise of the show is well thought-out, and the first two episodes were entertaining, although I'm not sure they were entirely consistent. Good special effects and excellent, mostly Canadian, supporting cast, including the inimitable Smoking Man from X-Files (William B. Davis), and Tony Amendola of Stargate fame. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of Season One, and am glad to learn that the series has already been picked up for a second season. Lots of potential here.… Expand
2While 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.… Expand
