Re: Continuum the new tv series!

If she has good as killed her boy if she offs Theseus why is she even bothering trying to ttweak Alec's ethical development since his not turning out like he did would have as much effect on her future?

I would have liked to have seen her kill Theseus and the results just because NO ONE ever kills baby Hitler when actually faced with it.

The lobotomized drones were assembling the same chips that that were inserted in them. Presumably everyone will have one that does different stuff. The soldiers they made must have their own version. What's it going to end up as, a handful of free people who are all in the same club and everyone else is a drone?

I don't think Theseus knew if those people could be saved. I think he just wanted to stop the machine and killing them all was the obvious choice.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Pushing that button, seemed to kill them all, and they knew that pushing the button killed everyone which is why the assistant didn't want to do it. After the drones fainted/died... Then Boom!

Kiera is inconsistent about how she believes time travel works.

And the monologue at the beginning is still a lie and grossly inaccurate.

But it's "nice" to see what happens when you can't pay your life debt.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Trying to stay away from this thread, Im only on episode 5 of season 2, watching it in the US on Syfy. Might be too tempted to download the rest just to keep up here. LOL

Thats said i am enjoying season 2.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Kiera has no idea how time travel works, but she's not used to be so very much in the dark about anything. Usually she's unraveling and deducing but all she has is unprovable speculations with time travel. And hopes, which is why she's inconsistent because the hopes keep trying to win out.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I am really dim when it comes to tv.. I only just learned that Keira is played by the same woman who played Gaila in ST:XI.



Ep 10 was good, lots of Garza who is such a wirey skanky badass. And the reveal at the end with the asian guy having the dot tattoo.. what does that mean? I'm assuming that Travis doesn't know he's a freelancer from the future, or whatever these people actually are.

And NO JASON. Very sad.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

OK....now i'm realizing you guys are way ahead....where are you compared to the current SYFY airing in the US (i am caught here in the US)?

ALso, i do want to point out that the title of the show is CONTINUUM...which may imply that the time cycle might happen a few times so that any changes from the future get reset with some unintended (or possibly planned) changes from others. We don't know if Kellogg became a billionaire in the future already, or if he is successful now, THAT future causes Alec to send Keira back again (or someone else to help "create" Keira)...or heck, introduce a multiple universe theory so that each timestream is "supposed" to happen...

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Season 2, Episode 10 is the most recent one. Next episode is aired July 21st (or July 22nd if you are in the future like me).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...n_2_.282013.29

Brief descriptions of eps do contain spoilers on that page.

As to it being a continuum and all the other theories I have no expectation of ever finding out. So far it's avoided the whole conspiracy upon conspiracy spiral but it may well end up that way. I would love it if it had a satisfactory conclusion, especially if we think we are getting the real info and in the final episode we are proved wrong and it ends with a debatable mystery. But really I'm happy as long as it doesn't end up chasing it's own tails like Lost which shitted me to tears.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Is no one else watching this?!

Anyway.. I've only just twigged with this latest ep (11) that the rogue freelancers may have more control than old Alec, Theseus and any other factions. They like to act like they are observers, mercenaries.. not really invested. But they may be the most invested of all.

Also STILL no Jason.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I saw "Jason" tonight on Andy McDowell's new show for Life Time Cedar Cove which was saccharinely insipid.

I think the Freelancers have been at work longer and have more control over their environment, but what they don't have is a way "home". Why am I thinking that they are all prisoners and that the past is like a sort of penal colony?

They talked about Jason this week.

He was the timecrazy person she had met obviously.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Oh yes.. though he didn't claim to see people.

I like the idea of travel making you timecrazy.

Temporal Aphasia... That sounds familiar?

No, I think that there's tech in his head set to a timer, this is part of a long term plan.

A three way fight over the time travel device? (Alec/Kiera, the Freelancers, and Escher).

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I figured out the last seconds of the final episode two weeks ago.

Alec goes to the future.

His older self is waiting for him when he arrives.

Young Alec: "Hey Asshole, you and me are going to have a conversation."
