^ I've been calling him "Tony Almeida" myself, eventhough that's the guy from 24.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

First passable episode of the season. Bra'tac carried the show as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

The show is turning out different than I thought. They aren't offing one of the bad guys every week in a formulaic fashion and we're getting flashbacks of life in the future. Also, I wonder where they're going with the timeline bit. Maybe their presence in the past has created a new timeline without erasing the old one. If that's the case, it makes you wonder what they'll go back to or if Kiera will see her husband and kid again.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

They've been straight with us about that since day one.

1. This is exactly what happened the first time around we can't change anything.

Or...

2. This is a new timeline, the future is unwritten from the moment you arrived.

Or...

3. Paradoxes will create destructive problems that might make us go crazy or dead.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

This episode was an interesting concept, the gang targeting Keira's grandmother. But I don't know, there was in the execution that just didn't sit right.

We have a Terminator-style plot (which is actually lampshaded in the episode) in which the gang is targeting everyone named "Lily Jones" knowing this to be the name of Keira's grandmother and hoping they can erase her existence. Kiera wonders how it's possible they can know who her grandmother is despite the fact that she knows about the ancestry of all of them. The gang learns Kellog is working against them so they kidnap his grandmother, to blackmail him into delivering Keira's grandmother. Kiera instead blackmails the gang by going after Bra'tac's mother, while she's pregnant with him. When all is said and done, Kellog's grandmother ends up killed, but since he still exists this just raises more questions.

Meanwhile Bra'tac is imposing a new plan with the gang, an actual plan as opposed to mindlessly rampaging around killing people. This doesn't sit well with Roger Cross and Lexa Doig. During these scenes I keep thinking of Wash playing with dinosaur toys in Frefly's pilot episode saying "curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal."

My main problem with this episode is that it dragged on. It felt like it had padded out, particularly with two drawn-out musical montages. They had a good idea, targeting each other's ancestors, but it ultimately resulted in a shoot-out in which everyone's mother or grandmother is targeted and one is killed with no apparent impact on the one descended from her.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I liked their out.

"Maybe you were adopted?"

Oh.

Wait?

Did they mean that if that's his fathers mother and not his mother mother...

Mommy cheated on daddy with the milk man?

It's not that milkmen are sexier than other regular men.

It's that the milk is free.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

I was wondering what would happen that would make them stop pursuing Kiera's grandmother by the end of the episode. Having Kellog's grandmother die without anything happening to Kellog solved that. I never expected him to just disappear anyway. That would have been pretty hokey for a show like this.

I feel bad for Kellog and his dead grandmother.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Diitto.

"read me first"

Punk kid meet the "Smoking man"

Although last week when alec's back was turned a human face flashed through his monitor arrays.

There's a Ghost in the machine.

I so thought that the finally scene would have been nagami knocking on the front door to Alec's house.

Unless because he knew what was coming that he's been feeding a false history to every one for the last 60 years that these guys can't find him too easily.

but seriously...

Fool me three times and I'm a tard.

Kira shouldn't have been caught by the game, and Alec after he was positive what happened to kira should not have put his own head set on!

I'm really like how they're playing Kellog.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Last night's was kind interesting, mainly because it seems they're making progress on the story arc. The gang is now aware of Alec, Alec is seeing some hints of what he becomes in the future. In fact, this is one time where I can believe a teenager can hack into an advanced futuristic computer, since presumably older Cancer Man Alec purposely made it possible for his teenage self to have easy access.

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Which brings us back to my earlier reservations that Future Alec... "Alexander" is the real secret head of liber8, which he only created to orchestrate a scenario that would send Kira back in time.

Who the fuck else is going to invent time travel tech?

After seeing the latest episode, that might not be far wrong.
Also, it appears Kagami wasn't entirely truthful about the girl being pregnant with him...

Re: Continuum the new tv series!

Did I miss something?

He was born, his mum got a shit load of money to give him a good life.

Did you ever wonder what Mary and Joseph spent all that frankincense, Gold and murr on after the wise men fucked off?

Like shit they put it in trust till JC had his 21st rager.
