  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…

Canadian Screen Awards Gala #1 – Press Room Adventures!!

  Thanks to the amazing work at Touchwood PR (you know who you are!), Sue and I were invited to cover the Canadian Screen Awards this week. The week is filled with lots of things for the Canadian broadcast, film and television industry, all of it culminating in the broadcast Sunday evening, hosted by Martin…

Continuum S02E09 – Seconds

  This week’s episode of Continuum tackles one of the age-old questions would you go back in time and kill someone, say Hitler, if you knew that it would save thousands, if not millions of lives? Kiera (Rachel Nichols) is confronted with that very question when Julian (Richard Harmon) is released from prison and slowly…

Continuum S02E08 – Second Listen

  This week, Alec (Erik Knudsen) finds his life in danger as Garza (Luvia Petersen) roars back onto the screen. As Kiera (Rachel Nichols) and Agent Gardiner (Nicholas Lea) run down their leads on the missing bodies, and after a quick visit with Escher (Hugh Dillon) we learn that there are more freelancers in 2013…

Continuum S02E07 – Second Degree

  This week it’s politics, legal wrangling and lies as Julian (Richard Harmon), Alec’s (Erik Knudsen) step-brother comes up for trial for his actions last season, including the shooting of Carlos (Victor Webster). And before I go any further, since I’ve mentioned Carlos lets talk about how he’s handling the fact that he’s now learned…

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…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

Fan Expo 2012

Here it is August 2012! And it’s almost Fan Expo time, my favorite time of year! The Mind Reels, just shy of it’s 1 year birthday, coming up in October (can you believe it?!) has been invited to attend this year’s Fan Expo and cover it as Media. Sue and I are delighted. I’ve gone…

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…
