Re: Continuum (US) Season 1 Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I love it already. The technological futurism is just about the best I've ever seen on TV. High-tech clothing with built-in equipment and graphics, cybernetic implants and transhuman enhancements -- this is great stuff. It's so fresh for TV that the old tropes of time travel seem positively antiquated by comparison.

Not as fond of the guns with the floaty midair targeting holograms. Not only are floaty midair holograms implausible as a rule (what's reflecting/emitting the light?), but if these people already have HUDs in their eyes, it seems redundant.

Rachel Nichols is a solid lead, though it's hard to entirely sympathize with her character or the system she represents. The story's pretty interesting so far.
