Continuum

Just curious will anyone be watching this show when it starts on Showcase on May 27th. I am probably dating myself but it reminds me a little bit of a 90ies show called Time Trax. According to my research the first season is only 10 episodes and will only air once so if you miss a episode you are SOL.

When did Showcase turn into Space?

Not that I'm complaining. :) Space went stagnant a long time ago.

I'm sure Showcase/Global/Shaw will absolutely rerun this into the ground just like Lost Girl, Rookie Blue, Combat Hospital, Haven, King and XIII ... I checked zap2it and it's playing the first episode five times within 7 days

Yes it looks good and may become the "spot the Stargate actor". I'm confused though about Sunday. I read it's going to be a two episode but there's a show in between. I'm I suppose to record at 9 then at 11?

jenviea,

i hope you are correct about it being repeated later on cause as it looks now i might be out of town towards the end of the 10 episodes and if it is a good show would like to have it on DVD. as for it being repeated that is interesting zap2it states its being repeated so much cause i contacted both alliance and showcase and they only told me one airing then it goes online.


Angela V,

as for spot the stargate actor as far as i know the only person from stargate that is on the show is the actor who portrayed bratac tealcs kinda father on the show who else from stargate is part of the cast?

Talked to Rachel Nichols yesterday, The hot chick. She said if you watch until about 5 episodes in her costume gets pretty sexy, that's something to look forward too lol

Well, there were definitely some familiar faces - from X-Files, SG1, SGA, and possibly 4400. Somewhat familiar story ideas too. It looks like it could be a sort of female-Robocop-based-in-Vancouver, wearing Tomb Raider outfits, working with conventional cop sidekick (like Earth: Final Conflict), and computer nerd (Dollhouse), chasing time-travelling escaped convicts (The One), who travel in time-distorting bubbles (Terminator), etc. It's definitely got potential, especially if they get other nations' networks (esp US) carrying it. I didn't like the ads popping up on top of the show though. If that catches on I'm going to stop watching TV completely and stick to watching DVDs, or perhaps straight downloads, of shows that interest me. I watch ads during advertising breaks, not during my TV shows themselves, thank you very much.

Oops, missed the 11pm episode.

Already spotted Varo from SG:U, and Zelenka from SG:A.

Plus I read that Lexa Doig will be making an appearance later in the season, so that covers off SG:1

And one of the Mutant X guys is a main cast member.

And Cigarette Smoking Man from X-Files.

All we need now is someone from BSG and Sanctuary to represent.

Did you ask her who's idea it was for her to play Scarlett in G.I. Joe: The Worst Movie Adaptation Ever?

Are you kidding?!?

GI Joe: Rise of Cobra was a hilarious b-moviesque intentional comedy.

I guess some people were expecting straight up yankee war porn, but this was a way over the top exaggerated sci-fi melodrama that wasn't afraid to laugh at itself.


As for Continuum, it was good enough to get me to record another episode.

You obviously didn't grow up watching ARAH.

The only thing intentional about RoC was their attempt to fleece the movie-going public of their hard-earned bucks.

Retaliation is going to be 1000x better.
