Continuum, is anyone watching this show?

Interesting little show...well first episode that is. It's already aired in Canada. I caught it before Being Human's season debut tonight.

I watched it shortly after it aired in Canada.

I rather enjoyed it.

It was watchable. We'll pick it up when it starts again.

First ten minutes or so were really cheesy (futuristic stuff)...but it got better as the show went on.

LMAO

The waves thaw dramatically when they hit the 49'th parallel.

I watched a couple of episodes last summer and thought it was OK. I'll watch it again when it airs down here.

I'm really looking forward to season 2. I thought it got better as season 1 moved along.

(If nothing else, it's nice to finally see a show shot in Vancouver that actually takes place in Vancouver.)

I watched 4 or 5 episodes of the show when it aired in Canada. I found the show to be a little too cheesy for my taste.

Seemed cheesy, but I try to give Pilot episodes some latitude, I'll watch a couple of more to see if they get better.

I have to wonder if the cover she gave herself blows up in her face. If criminal violence immediately shot up, not only would the police captain(?), be calling "Portland", I would imagine the news, and politicians would be doing the same..

It reminded me too much of time trax. I suppose it's the specific treatment not the story catch that makes it a good or bad show. After all, there are three different Sherlock Holmes being (mostly) simultaneoously produced, each different, and each successful.

The pilot episode didn't do anything for me. There wasn't anything there to make it stand out from the crowd. I'll probably watch the second episode, but doubt I'll give it a
Season Pass.

I won't try to claim it gets _lots_ better, but the plot lines get a little more complex and somewhat interesting maybe around #5 or 6 and it stays fairly interesting to the end.

Is there anything in the Canadian version they might have to edit for US? I just didn't know if it was worth watching one over the other.

I don't think so...I recall it being pretty standard Vancouver sci-fi in terms of tone and content.

I found it boring and formulaic. I stopped after a couple of episodes.

Wasn't there already a thread?

I watched it back in the summer and liked it. I'm tivoing them this time around and will watch them during the lulls of other shows, like last night when I rewatched the pilot. Rachel Nichols is very easy on the eyes.

If you want a great show that is filmed and takes place in Vancouver I can highly recommend Intelligence. Slate magazine called it the Canadian Wire and I agree.

It's currently available on Amazon Instant Video. I think I watched it on Netflix but it's not there anymore.

My wife and I couldn't make it to the halfway point of the pilot. The dialogue and acting is terrible so far. And the pacing is WAY off.

I watched the pilot episode last night and it was ok. Not great enough for me to be excited about it, but I am looking forward to the next episode.
