Continuum the new tv series!
 
http://www.scifistream.com/2012/05/r...iering-may-27/

The show stars Rachel Nichols (Alias, Criminal Minds) as Kiera Cameron, a “CPS Protector” from the year 2077. When a group of fanatical terrorists escape their planned execution and travel back in time to the present day, Cameron is swept along with them.



Sounds alot like Time Trax. Might be interesting.

Well the plot does sound similiar to Time Trax.

It Began in the future, criminals who vanish, a time machine called Trax.

It's been what almost 20 years since that show premiered?

I'm a bit on the fence with this based on the previews, but it might actually have a chance to survive solely because it's not being backed by the network television suits. I can't fucking stand the generic cop/lawyer/doctor procedurals, so I'm always glad to see shows that step away from those tired formulas.

Word. And she's a fellow Mainer (as is the lovely Anna Kendrick), so I'm obligated to support her. :techman:

As a huge fan of the lovely Rachel Nichols I've been looking forward to this show for a while now. ;)

I'd rather see a show about a bunch of fanatical terrorists and a cop travelling to the year 2077, but i'll certainly try it out.

It's strange, I'm almost 100% certain that's Tony Amendola (Bra'tac on Stargate) in that trailer, yet IMDB doesn't have him credited as being in this (neither on his page or the show's page).

That's definitely him, alright.

Yep that's Tony. The preview looks no better or worse than anything on Syfy, I suppose. If it were set in the future, I'd be more likely to bother with it, but that would require it have a budget.
