Chatting with Continuum’s Rachel Nichols

  Sue and I were very delighted to be invited to Showcase to sit down and chat with the star of the hit series Continuum, Rachel Nichols alongside Steph Mernagh from Geek Chic Elite. We spoke time travel, tech, what to expect for Kiera Cameron season 3, and our love of a short-lived show called…

Continuum S02E06 – Second Truths

  As I went into watching this episode, there came the announcement that Season 3 is a go. That’s a great thing, BUT, it also tells us Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) does not get back to the future by season’s end, we also know that she’s around for the next season, so hopefully we at…

Continuum S02E05 – Second Opinion

  We get a bit of a bottle show this week for Continuum, as almost all of it seems to take place in the Vancouver Police Department, or in Alec’s (Erik Knudsen) new digs, supplied to him by Kellog (Stephen Lobo). Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is having a tough time, if she were in 2077, today…

Continuum S02E04 – Second Skin

  In what could have been a goofy and silly episode – geeky civilian gets hold of a CPS suit, this week’s ep ended up being poignant, thrilling, and continued to move the Liber8 splinter groups agenda forward. In the future segment, we get to see Kiera (Rachel Nichols)on a simulation that sees her freezing…

Continuum Catch-Up

  After trips, film festivals and catching up with some dear friends, I finally had time to catch-up on my Continuum, as season 2 started while I was away. So I settled in and caught up on the 3 episodes I’d missed so far. The first thing I realized was that despite having a huge…

Continuum S01 E10 – End Times

  Somehow we’ve come to the end of the first season of Showcase’s enjoyable sci-fi series Continuum, and it ends explosively! It also ties up a number of story threads for the season while setting up ideas for season 2. We see things happening in our 2077 opener, that tie directly back to the first…

Continuum S01 E08 – Game Time

Now this is what I’m talking about! Continuum finds it’s feet again in what, for me, is the best episode since Episode 05 A Test of Time. We open in the 2070s, where CPS Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) is apparently pulling some kind of guard duty at Sautech for a demonstration. A demonstration that…

Continuum S01 E07 – The Politics of Time

At it’s heart, this week’s episode is about loyalty, trust and the heart. It’s also a rather familiar police investigation kind of story, once the plot gets going. But it’s the characters that make the story its own. It happily also helped me put some distance between the fight sequence of last week (I’ve harped…

Continuum S01E06 – Time’s Up

This week, our favorite CPS protector, Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), Alec (Eric Knudsen) and Carlos (Victor Webster) get involved with the Occupy movement. As always we open in the 2070s, and Kiera and her partner Elena (Caitlin Cromwell) are on riot patrol, and find out that Liber8 is stealing food from a company Piron, that…

Continuum S01 E05 – A Test of Time

This week, series creator Simon Barry, and writer Jeff King bring us my favorite episode of Continuum so far, by introducing a lot of things to think about in terms of timelines in paradoxes. Because this week, Kagame (Tony Amendola) and Liber8 spring into full Terminator-mode, going after CPS Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) through…

Continuum S01 E04 – Matter of Time

This week’s Continuum has the ‘A’ Story falling solidly into the term – ‘police procedural’ although Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), still using her cover as working for Section 6, uses some of her tech, specifically her heads up display ocular implant. We start in pre-2077, as Sam is still a baby, and Greg (John Reardon)…

Continuum S01 E03 – Wasting Time

We join Kiera in 2077 in this week’s opener, as she is kitted out in full assault gear to chase down an ex-soldier who has become a Liber8 revolutionary. Finding their target behind a holographic wall, they capture Sonya (Lexa Doig), code-named The Queen of Hearts. This transitions us back to 2012 where Kiera Cameron…
