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.

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!

In 2077 Canada revolutionaries about to be executed audaciously timeleap into 2012. Hot on their heels is Protector Kiera Cameron, determined none will escape....

A thoughtprovoking series of ten 44 minute episodes. All is not as it first seems, Kiera increasingly to wonder if the rebels have a point. 2077 is dominated by Big Business, ordinary people with very little say. In 2012 the rebels want to expose major corporations blatantly becoming a law unto themselves, successive Governments barely able to curb their excesses. The aim is to name and shame those in power lining their own pockets, callously regarding the public as their cash cows. The rebels, though, are divided about strategy - militant action, or a more subtle approach?

Rachel Nichols stars as Kiera, her suit awesome. In fact gadgetry of the future is one of the show's most fascinating assets. (Less so the other 2077 clothes. Still shirts and ties? Goodness!) Special effects generally impress. Making particular impact is Eric Knudsen as teen computer wizard Alec Sadler (although it is never quite clear how he developed such skills, not to mention that barn-based hi-tec laboratory).

As ever, impact is gained by watching episodes in quick succession, but viewers may still find aspects confusing. Intrusive music disappoints, especially when as characters speak.

Sadly no special features.

The series has much going for it, well justifying further seasons. Most important of all, it draws attention to practices increasingly widespread: powerful people shamelessly exploiting as many as they can. (Currently there seem glaring examples.) What in 2012 is clearly paving the way for the life depicted in 2077?

Recommended.
