I find it astonishing that you can't buy this legally on DVD already yet.
Season 1 is finally being released on dvd and bluray in America on March 26, 2013.

(It probably won't be a first-day buy for me. I've seen every episodes more than 5 times already).

Remember when Andromeda tried to save money in the final season?

They lost the ship and set the rest of their adventures in an unkempt dive bar on a planet.
I long lost interest by then but now I want to watch the last season of Andromeda.

This series takes a stance on what kind of rules they are living in as it pertains to the killing of one's ancestors. I won't spoil it, but something happens that confirms one of the common theories about time travel.
I actually would like to hear this. Can you put it in spoilercode?

Second episode was pretty good.

^ I suppose the 'target' could just be the wrong one. That's what the Wiki article implies, anyway.

Also, iTunes has this show on a season pass...

I'll probably wait until the bluray set tumbles to less than $20.

Not exactly the most enticing buy, after seeing every episode more than five times already.

I forgot to say in my other post that I'm glad they already dealt with the fact that the name she gave in the pilot belonged to somebody else who is alive and well.

The name she adopted was from a person on a news report in the background during the pilot.

(Not quite sure what to make of this).

The ratings for the first Continuum episode on Syfy were quite low.

According to futon critic, it had an overall rating of 0.2 for Monday January 14, 2013 evening. Approximately 0.903 million viewers overall, and 0.247 million viewers in the 18-49 age demographic.

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/rating...able_20130114/

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...s-more/165331/


In contrast for comparison, wwe raw wrestling had ratings of 1.6 and 1.7 for Monday January 14, 2013. Over 4.4 million viewers overall, and over 2 million viewers in the 18-49 age demographic.

An episode of Lost Girl on Monday January 14, 2013 had slightly better ratings than Continuum. About 1.186 million viewers overall, and around 0.573 million viewers in the 18-49 age demographic. A rating of 0.5.


If ratings for subsequent episodes of Continuum start to tumble significantly, then one has to ask whether it will be renewed for a third season. (Continuum has already been renewed for a 13-episode season 2 in Canada).

If they want better ratings then they shouldn't let two other countries download the entire season onto the internet before releasing it in America.
