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

Finally watched the first episode, and thought it was pretty decent, but nothing to get very excited about. The effects were good, and the lead actress is just interesting and sympathetic enough that you care about the situation she's in... but too much of the story and concept still just felt awfully tired and derivative.

The chasing criminals from the future, the Minority Report-style technology, the computer geek sidekick who's never seen action before....

Although the fact the future-cop is a woman this time does feel a little new (and she's certainly nice to look at), so I'll probably keep watching for a little longer at least.
