This Monday saw the American premiere of Continuum, a new science fiction series that has already run its first season in Canada. Indeed, a second season has already been ordered, and Continuum has thus far received generally favorable reviews. The show follows Kiera Cameron (played by Rachel Nichols), a Vancouver cop from the year 2077 as she is inadvertently thrust back in time to our present with Liber8, a group of freedom-fighter terrorists slated to be executed by the corporate-run government. Now in the early twenty-first century, decades away from her family and friends, Cameron seeks to prevent the terrorist group from affecting the timeline.
Whether Continuum lives up to its early promise right now can only be answered by time travelers (or Canadians), but it seems off to a good start.
