Should you watch Continuum? Hell yes, you should! This new Showcase series premiered yesterday and it was oh so good! Yeah maybe the episode suffered from some pilot-itis, but it was such a great set-up. Overall it was just really good!
Kiera Cameron, a cop from the year 2077, is unexpectedly transported to the year 2012 along with 8 deadly terrorists from the movement Liber8, leaving her husband and son behind. She took this time travelling rather well, Kiera you champ! She managed to arrest one of the terrorists by injecting some fluid she brought from the future. Also, she wears this awesome suit which can do everything basically.
On the other hand, the terrorists really intended to time travel. (Only they travelled too far in time, it was meant to be 6 years.) This way they escaped their impending doom that day, with the aid of the people who arrested them in the first place.
She tries to contact one of her superiors through a micro ship planted in her brain, but ends up contacting a young boy, Alec, who happens to be the creator of all their advanced technology. He’s kind of freaked out, she’s kind of freaked out. It’s a freak-out fest!
This show doesn’t mess around. The morning after their arrival, the terrorists have managed to raid a store and blow up a really important bridge in Vancouver with no traces of any explosives. This is just the beginning according to Kiera, who has managed to infiltrate the police force as a detective from Portland!
At the police station, she interrogates Lukas Ingram, one of the terrorists, and finds out that Liber8 is starting a war in 2012. Meanwhile, the other terrorists are ganging up other members and are murdering cops for weapons. They’ve murdered Carlos ‘ partner, so Kiera becomes his new partner. She figures out that Liber8 is in need of some money and are planning to rob a bank. She murders one of the terrorists with the help of her suit and is saved by Carlos.
Turns out the bank raid was a bait, and they’ve murdered 6 policemen at the office, plus Lukas managed to escape with them. Carlos is pissed, as he should be, and is determined to arrest every one of Liber8 with the help of Kiera!
The episode ends in a flashback, we get to meet the older version of Alec. He was also the one who helped the convicts escape and clearly remembers Keira from when he was young. Dun dun dun!
Ugh, I love a good Sci-Fi show!
