Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Something i am confused about...with Roger Cross' character now on TV because of Liber8, don't people in the future know about him, and can stop him preemptively?

And so Liber8 has been around for 70 years? Wow...

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

The Police have had his picture for ages.

Alec has seen Lucas a dozen times.

Considering Alec "gives" Nagame (Or thesueus) the time travel device eventually, maybe the only reason he tried to kill the old Terrorist at this point was that with Kira now "thought" dead, there was no point in trying to repeat the time travel social engineering experiment.

But once Kira resurfaces, and the Paradox is suddenly reunbroken, it now becomes dangerous to consider not breaking the paradox for the first time because the universe might shatter.

Or the writers had a brain fart.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Lol, just been watching some episodes of Criminal Minds from 2011 and wondering, "where do I know that blonde from?"

Rachel Nichols looks way different as a blonde.

And now after looking on IMDB I find that she was the Orion girl from ST'09.

Yeah, she looks really different as a redhead.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Not a bad episode. I wonder how long the Alec from the original timeline will be locked up?
I thought it was pretty great that Liber8 actually didn't launch the attack, and only revealed the information about the chemicals. I love it when a show can surprise me like that, and manage to do it in a way that isn't totally out of character.

Black is white, up is down.

The future is shite, and someone has to stop it.

They've been moving in this direction since half way through last season.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Finally caught up.

They have DE-scruffed Jason

Okay he is still extremely nice to look at but I sure hope he ends up homeless fast because I want the scruff back.

She was also a regular in the last season or two of Alias. Very young, very blond, very gorgeous.

Just the last season, I think. And yeah, I really liked her there.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Hmmm, it will be interesting to see where they go with Keira now.
I liked the bit of back story we got for Sonya and Kagame here.
Is this the first we've gotten an episode that was almost all in the future?

Yeah -- and naturally they could only afford that by setting it mostly in a low-tech enclave.

Not crazy about the small-universe syndrome of Kiera just happening to end up in the same place that Kagame and Sonia were, years before she ended up following them back in time. Rather coincidental, that.

And I don't quite get what led to Kiera's evident "awakening" at the end there. A flashback to something she remembered all along? I guees the idea was that Curtis's reference to her sleepwalking reminded her of the past incident and somehow let her see it in a new light. (I guess I was distracted by the fact that Curtis thinks the past tense of "sleepwalk" is "sleptwalked.")

i think you answered it by the previous paragraph -- saving money.

I forget -- did they actually see each other? i'll forgive this small universe situation, since it gave some real depth to Sonia, and her role in Liber8. It also shows why Kagame is a very credible leader. (If only "Theseus" was as charismatic as Kagame)

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Imagine 15 year old JFK trying to buy beer from the wholesaler?

(Jeff was 15 in 1932, prohibition was repelled in 1933, but Jeff's dad was an infamous bootlegger. Nevermind.)

Line from Glee...

Sam "I used to have trouble sleeping so Blaine would read me Star Wars fanfiction until I got tired."

(flashback/cutaway)

Blaine "I think young Annikan has a diaper full of mediclorians artoo, said C3po as he bottle fed space formula to the young jedi that would one day bring balance to the force."

Sam "Whoever wrote this fanfiction, really sucks."

Blaine "Actualy George Lucas wrote this one."

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I squealed when I saw Ryan Robbins. He looks FANTASTIC. I've been on a beard kick because of getting obsessed listening to John Grant over and over and boy does Robbins rock that beard. He looks great older and a bit thicker and.. also I'm loving the character though I suspect he will turn out to be Kiera's mortal enemy from the future. If this doesn't happen I'll be pleased.

I loved the underground citizenship removal operation too.
