This show is different and I like! The high-techie-ness of it is intriguing. Definitely a show worth watching. It's also the show that gets the re-run at 11 after Lost Girl incase you miss the episode at 8.
Plus, Rachel Nichols is gorgeous. -- Slydermv--In short.. hookers save lives.
Yeah, I saw about 10 episodes of the show and thought it was pretty good. I figured it was time for season 2 to start by now. I'm going to go looking around for more info. -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H. L. Mencken
Glad to hear it found it's way down to the states. I quite enjoyed it up here in Canada. I got through about half of the first season and got distracted and keep meaning to return to it. The show has it's flaws but it is unique and original enough to make it worth watching.
Not that I know of. Season 1 started last night on SyFy.
I think it came out a few months ago originally on a Canadian sci-fi channel.
It ran on Showcase, a "drama" channel, Space, our "Sci Fi" channel has become a secondary market channel for shows like Arrow , and older seasons of shows like Dr Who and Merlin(damn why did they cancel it...) -- No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......
Apparently there is an 8 part graphic novel that tells the story of the war between the Corporations and Liber8. It's called Continuum: The War Files and is available to Canadians on the Showcase site: »continuum-the-game.com/no-comics

As I said they have a great cast, with alumni from:
Jericho Mutant X SG1 SG Universe Andromeda V the series Earth Final Conflict TekWars BSG Blood and Chrome ( supposedly) Caprica Bionic Woman Taken X-Files ST-DS9 ST-Voyager ST-NG ST-Enterprise The Chronicles of Riddick Fringe 24 Frist Wave The 4400 and more,
This show seems to have some overt political tones to it. Corporations being portrayed as oppressive entities AKA 1%.
I kinda hope the protector is able to find a balance between being the patsy for the corporations, and the extreme violence of libr8, ans is able to make changes in the past that benefit the people, weakening the overall power of the corporations.
I guess that is one reason why I'm "kool" to the show, because of how they portray corporations as the "big evil" in the future. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
Season finale was awesome. Interesting twists being thrown around and I'm excited to see where next season leads. Hopefully it'll have more than 10 episodes also. -- Slydermv--In short.. hookers save lives.
