    The all too typical cheezy hacker stuff really turns me off. When will we get beyond the hacking is mashing keys as fast as possible, code is nothing more that screens full of random numbers that are instantly recognizable and contain incredible detail to those "who know" and that somehow, just wearing VR glasses makes the impossible possible?

    That was established on the very first episode. As soon as she appeared in the present, she was on-line with his experimental system, so he knew that what he was working on was compatable with her suit. When he told her his name, she made sme kind of comment about his company having manufactured the tech she was using.

    In the beginning of the first epside, just as they all are slipped backward in time, the kid, an old man now (the Smoking Man from the X-Files, Wm. Davis), has a funny smile on his face, like he expectd it to happen because he remembered her from when he was younger. That's merely speculation. He DID have a smile though...

    You did miss something. Kira told him to put himself in the place of the guy who would have created it. When he was working on the suit he said "If I were a password where would I hide" then he thought and said "I should know I built it"

    Typed in a password and the suit's file system opened up.

    Monday I'll be 3 episodes behind. Is the show getting any better? I did love watching our feisty heroine in her suit but the plot line had lost my interest 3 episodes ago. At least I watched enough to learn that Canadians absolutely cannot hit anything with a handgun.

    I thinks it's beginning to hit its stride (although Carlos is a bit draining). The last ep I thought was better.

    I started this show thinking I would lose interest. Some episodes are better than others, but I think it's better than NBC's Revolution.

    I have watched all the episodes so far and I do think it's getting better at making me glad I am a viewer. It isn't the greatest sci-fi show ever or anything but I still enjoy it. Sure, some of it is not that plausible but the show is entertaining IMO.

    It is taking on a different tone and a different story direction in some ways than in the beginning. I was a little hesitant at first and I am glad I stuck with it. The flashbacks of Kira's past are helping to define her character and make more sense of some her motivations.

    Bottom line? I do look forward to each episode. I would give it about a 7 out of 10 :)

    Playtime: How in the @#$% are the CPS officers not being hacked in 2077, if Alex had to write a stronger firewall after Kiera was hacked using relatively primitive tech? I know that they had to get some specific data via the VR system, but this is (or was) 2012 tech, I'm sure that 2077 tech could have been able to access the implants much easier.

    Family Time: For a moment, I thought that the propane tank blast was going to be a ruse to remove the advantage of the suit again. I got a Sixth Season Buffy & Spike vibe from Kiera & Kellog.

    Watched the first ep. Thought it was terrible. And it looked like it was shot on a budget of about $4.

    Watched the latest episode and I have come to a conclusion I've actually been thinking this since the episode with the Riot.

    I have not read anything about the show nor do I know any spoilers. But my thought is:

    Julian is Edward Kagame.

    So it's your thought, 65 years later, it is
    step brother against step brother...? Interesting. But I don't know if Kagame is old enough to be Julian 65 years later. Julian has to be in his twenties. Kagame doesn't look to be in his eighties.

    I originally thought so, but didn't Kellog hold one of Kagame's previous of kin hostage in an earlier episode?

    Yes. Pregnant lady in the "kill the CPS's Grandma" was pregnant with Kagame, and called out as such at the end of the episode.

    Like many others I was left with a 'meh' after the pilot ep. Far too many procedural errors by the VPD to make it even close to believable.

    But, SyFy recently ran a marathon of season 1 and I watched the whole thing. There's some really interesting story lines here and the tech is cool. Still, you have to be willing to believe that the VPD is the most poorly trained and stupidest PD in N. America to buy their actions - or lack thereof.

    I won't even begin to discuss how a few armed people managed to assault a frickin' police station and free one prisoner. Oy!

    I also like the flashback scenes to the future and how they tie into what's happening in the current timeline.

    Overall I give it a C+, primarily due to the glaring police procedural errors that are hard to get past. Were it not for that I'd give it a solid B+... maybe even an A.

    I deal with it by rationalizing that Canadians don't know how to use guns

    Regarding yesterday's finale, I gotta admit I was wondering if the actor Ian Tracy would ever pop in and make an appearance in this series: Ian has to be one of the hardest working actors in Canada. Or at least he appears so to me, because I see him in most of the Canadian series I watch.

    I assume, however, that this season finale is likely the last we will see of him. Looks like Kira decided he was pretty much a nut.... with a tinfoil hat, too!
