'Continuum' - Canadian drama coming to Syfy channel

http://www.tv.com/news/news-briefs-s...ntinuum-29439/

Quote:
Syfy is continuing its relationship with the fine Canadians of Canada and will import Continuum, a buzzy drama starring Rachel Nichols. The 10-episode first season just wrapped up earlier this month on Canada's Showcase, and a second season has already been ordered. Nichols stars as a cop from the future that is wormholed back to present-day Vancouver and chases down future terrorists who have also time-traveled.

The show has been discussed in the 'Happy Hour' forum.

Quote:
Continuum is a one-hour police drama centered on Kiera Cameron, a regular cop from 65 years in the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. She is alone, a stranger in a strange land, and has eight of the most ruthless criminals from the future, known as Liber8, loose in the city.

Lucky for Kiera, through the use of her CMR (cellular memory recall), a futuristic liquid chip technology implanted in her brain, she connects with Alec Sadler, a seventeen-year-old tech genius. When Kiera calls and Alec answers, a very unique partnership begins.

Watched the series by "magical" means, and it's pretty good.

Glad SyFy is picking it up and less magical of us get to enjoy it.

I just hope that the Sify gets the deal to telecast the Canadian show Continuum. Somewhat, I feel that it is going to be a tough thing, but if they try hard they could get it. Surely if they are able to get the contract of telecasting the show, then it would be a good police drama for the Canadian audience.

On the web, I saw some of the pilot episodes and it was quite interesting. The story and screenplay are refreshing and can capture the interest of the audience.

I already watched the first couple of episodes and it just wasn't for me.

I can definitely see where some people would enjoy it, though.

I gave up after 5 episodes too. I thought it was ok, but using magic to get it, just wasn't worth the effort. Maybe I'll catch it on SyFy when I won't have to put effort into it - maybe.

I watched the first season by other means and enjoyed it. I mean, how can you not like a show that has Rachel Nichols in a skin tight suit with Lexa Doig as a backup?

What's somewhat interesting is that Continuum is included among the series that will be available on HBO Nordic, a streaming-only subscription model for HBO that won't require you be subscribed to HBO via cable or satellite services to purchase.

I've never heard of that--I don't suppose GoT will be available on it next year.

Even if it was, it's not going to be available in the US for the foreseeable future, they've made that pretty clear.

I'm glad SyFy is getting it. IO had wanted to watch it but there were hoops to go through to get it. Any idea when SyFy will be broadcasting it?

Backup? More like a few 'Oh yeah, there's Lexa Doig again. I forgot she was in this' spread across the season.

...or so I've heard.

I'm tempted to do a rewatch.
1- to see if anything was edited/changed.
2- it was that good the first time around.

Crap, I was hoping my ninja edit got in before anyone quoted.

Ya, I didn't read the thread title before I posted that, thought I was in the original thread about the show.
