70 years from now the worlds governments have finally lost their fight against the failing economies and have sold out to the big corporations who now run the show.
The 'police' or protectors as they are now called have the task of making sure law & order is upheld and that big business firm grip on the world is maintained.

A terrorist attack means that the terrorists, once caught, are to be executed but they escape at the last moment. Along with a protector who has got caught up in their escape they find themselves in our time and the race is on for the terrorists to prevent big business taking over and for our cop to stop them.

On the face of it this is all pretty standard fare. Pretty, pouty heroine in tight fitting smart suit, thug-like bad guys, a tech geek who helps the heroine and a few ho hum effects set against a 'cheaper than America' Vancouver backdrop.
The local police get caught up in stopping the time hopping criminals and Kiera,(the heroine) teams up with a hunky lug who lumbers along behind her like a pet dog.

This really ought to stink to high heaven but it manages to save itself with some fine ideas. First of which is having Rachel Nichols as the main character.She has already been a regular in a couple of TV shows, ( Criminal minds & Alias) as well as a handful of best forgotten movies but she can act and although she may be often flaunted as eye candy here she rises well above that tag to show some more than respectable acting ability and carries the 'just whose side is she on' angle very nicely.
The same can't be said for Victor Webster who plays present day detective Carlos. He too has some solid previous TV experience but has the acting ability of a log and struggles to keep up with just about every one else.

I caught the first couple of episodes on the Syfy Channel and whilst I was interested it wasn't something that originally stuck with me enough to watch it all the way through. Now this isn't a case of because I was bored, it was more to do with a lot of the subtle nuances within that whilst you remember it at the time, over subsequent weeks when others work their way though, you've forgotten what has gone before which is why a DVD release is a real joy to own.

What you get within this, is a top notch story that whilst following some of the conventions that other futuristic time travel series have utilised really works on the principle character trying her damnedest to not affect the current time and thus change the future as she or her family will change. It's a solid premise and when you add the heroine chasing a group of villains all set on starting a war that will change events, really works on so many levels.

Add to this solid performances, some wonderful film trickery to help you get the emotional aspects (though the use of camera filters) and solid story arc linking all ten episodes and it's a series that works very well for me as a viewer. Great stuff.

oh my goodness are you serious??? really!!?? I mean how can anyone give this series a bad review as i think this is such a fantastic series and even the baddies are great too
i really love this series and how it all blends together

the only gripe i have is it's not long enough
be great to have a 20 plus episode season :)))

other than that i hope continuum longs to continue well into the future

anyone who says this is awful or terrible is completely out of touch and just don't get it
it's also great to have wonderful new imagination of storylines and characters

this series in my view should get an award

it's the best ever in a long time

Bought this just from an Amazon recommendation and was hooked from the start. The main character Kiera is interesting, she seems to be in complete agreement of her role as a policewoman for a future where the large corporates rule and governments and people no longer have a say. However as time goes on she questions the future. I find this series thought provoking, we are now asking the same questions. Should society be run by corporations and out of touch politicians? How can we take back our government and make it for the people and by the people? Hope this series continues.

I'd never heard of this before I saw it in the recommended box on Amazon. Reviews looked good and we are long time science fiction fans so I thought I'd risk it. Not disappointed, good premise, well acted and moves along well, just bought season 2 yesterday and using that as an excuse, we're re-watching season 1 and enjoying it as much as the first time. Highly Recommended!

Really enjoying it. The plot lines don't drag on, the action is well staged and the future landscape looks great. The main story arc about the terrorist group attacking the future corporations has some resonance about it, given the power corporations seem to have today! Totally dig Rachel Nichols in the lead role, there's something different about her.
