There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Sorry for the late report. I thought there might have already been a thread on this show since it aired on Showcase in Canada beginning last May. The pilot episode starts tonight at 8pm Eastern/7 Central on Syfy, to be repeated at 11pm/10c, plus ten other times throughout the week.

I've seen all ten episodes and recommend it. Not great, but it's pretty good, solid story and decent acting, especially Rachel Nichols (The Inside, Alias).

I had also heard it recommended as being pretty good, which is saying a LOT these days...

I've seen all ten episodes too. I like it. It's better than average sci-fi and the central premise offers the viewer a genuine ethical dilemma. Like all great sci-fi there is a mirror to present day anxieties and this I think elevate it above it's counterpart.

Rachel Nichols (the green alien from Start Trek) does carry the show , but as things progress a few of the other characters develop well too and their actions to the narrative relate to their character.

Also there are some nifty sci-fi contrivances along the way that lift the overall concept.

It looks like it is worth checking out, it should be better then "Warehouse 13" which is stupid and should be canceled.

I also saw the original Canadian run last year and was impressed. They have lower budgets up there but they put up some great FX. Good writing. Acting not outstanding but got the job done. Looking forward to season 2, which airs later this year up north.

I like Warehouse13, and think YOU'RE stupid and should be cancelled!




As for Continuum, I checked it out last night, having missed it on Monday, and it was decent. Has some good actors in it, namely the Smoking Man from The X Files ( who is looking really old now ), but also some others.

Finally got to see Season 1 thanks to Netflix.
I enjoyed it quite a bit. Can't wait for Season 2 to start up in the US.

Can't wait for Warehouse 13 to come back, too.


It is coming back, right?

It's back tomorrow night following Defiance, but I've already seen the episode since Syfy made it available online a couple of weeks ago. James Marsters guest stars.

Thanks for the info!

And to get back on topic, I was actually impressed with Rachel Nichol's acting ability. Granted, I only know her from Star Trek and GI Joe, but she does a pretty good job carrying the show.

She ain't hard to look at either.

IIRC she was the main character in one of Tim Minear's series after Firefly. I want to say The Inside (I know imdb is a click away but I'm lazy). The show got axed way too quickly. A Fox execution I'm pretty sure. I thought she was a pretty good actress even back then and of course hot as hell. I think she generally gets type cast as just eye candy, but given the chance I think she can act.

I'm still not caught up on the first season of continuum but I'm liking it so far.

I found The Inside on YouTube and watched the first couple of eps. Pretty good stuff. Kinda scared too watch the rest because I don't know if it has a cliffhanger ending.

Got Continuum from my Public Library. I think I'm about half way through the second season.
Noticed the Cigarette Man, plus Tahmoh (sp?) who is one of Joss's favorites.

I can see why Eric was required to send them back in time, but I don't think I have seen why Kiera was selected to come also - or could she have been anybody? If it's not too spoilerish, does anybody know yet why she is the one to come back with them?

It has not be definitively established, and we might not ever know since it looks like a Season 4 won't happen, but there was a connection between Older Alec and Kiera's husband. In the pilot episode, it sure looked like Old Alec was pleased when Kiera was caught up in the time bubble along with the Liber8 prisoners.

I thought he was just pleased that the time travel worked, that his life's work was accomplished, and thus his life could exist. I didn't notice any particular reaction to Keira jumping in - how could he control that?
Are you saying Kiera's husband was working towards getting her out of the picture? He sure seems creepy to me. Did he make some deal with old Alec, other than working for him?

Kiera's husband did work for Alec, and I think he had assumed there was an agreement that Kiera would not be assigned to the execution detail, then was very upset when she was. I think Alec made sure she was.

Not yet, although not officially cancelled yet either. Latest word is they are still in negotiations to get a reduced budget.

One thing that kinda ticks me off. This is perhaps the best role Rachel has had, at least one of the best - yet her "people" would not let her consider the role, see the role, let her know about the role. I assume her "people" are her agents, or similar. She had to get the backdoor info from a friend who was with Continuum, and bring it to her "people" and tell them she wanted it, and they tried to talk her out of it. How horrendous can her agents be and still be associated with her?

Wouldn't any of you be ticked off if your agent, or recruiter, or counselor worked very hard to prevent you from making great progress?

Don't know the details, but they might of been trying to keep her options open for feature films.

You know, to take advantage of her GI Joe and Star Trek appearances.

Also noticed striking actress playing Lily Cole, Keira's grandmother.
Katie Findley now playing Rebecca Sutter on How To Get Away With Murder. She still looks about 8-10 years younger than her age.

Really notice lots of good acting on Continuum.

I was wondering, of those who have watched the show:

How did you feel about Keira sleeping with Kellogg? Do you think she no longer trusts her husband? I was under the impression she does, although I do not. Is her desire to get back to her son the driving urge, and the husband is inconvenient, and perhaps untrustworthy?

How did you feel about this? I was disappointed. She's only from 2077, not 2517.

I think it was just a moment of weakness on her part. It was only the one time, they are never together again, at least through the third season.

I didn't think of her having that weakness. I didn't think she had any attraction for Kellogg.


Just finished second season. I guess 3rd season will be released later.
At least the brat is gone. That guy became really irritating towards the end. Not thrilled Carlos went over to Betty's side.

Season 3 is already on Netflix, but it doesn't come out on DVD/Blu-Ray until Dec. 23.

Who is it you mean by the brat?

Also, don't worry about Carlos just yet, things do change quite a bit in Season 3.

The brat I meant Alex, the kid guru.

I had trouble recalling where i recall Jason from, now I see it was Davinci's Inquest with a certain adorable Kaylee.

At the end of season 2, he is gone with the time travel device. Leaving Kiera stranded.

I had been under the impression I had exhausted all of these episodes.
Hard to believe this was 4 years ago.

How I ran across Season 4, and it doesn't seem familiar. I'm not even sure I've seen S3 at this point.
