Yep, 'Continuum' is, to me, right up there...
The premise is this. The year is 2077. The place, Vancouver. Corporations have overtaken politicians to rule the country. A terrorist group, Liber8, are trying to bring change to the high-tech surveillance Police State that the world has become. As tens of thousands of people die in the conflict, Liber8's Leader, Edouard Kagame, is arrested by Kiera Cameron, a City Protection Services (CPS) Law Enforcement Officer, and brought to justice, along with his group.
Kiera is just doing her job; she a married mother of a pre pubescent boy.
When the group from Liber8 are sentenced to execution, and in the process of said act, use a smuggled time machine device to escape, inadvertently Kiera manages to find herself transported back in time herself....to 2012.
Whilst Liber8 plan to continue their terrorist acts on the corporations to, in effect, stop the future from happening, Kiera attempts to foil their schemes.
Kiera find herself involved with the Vancouver Police Department and, alongside Detective Carlos Fonnegra, track down the members of Liber8 and thwart their plans, whilst keeping her identity secret.
Kiera is assisted in her crusade by Alec Sadler, a young teen who is as surprised as Kiera that the tech that had built - a special com unit to communicate with user, visually and audial, and record data....via use of a chip implanted in the user - actually works. Of course, this is all part of Kiera's setup for being a CPS Law Enforcer in 2077; A standard piece of kit.
Imagine the surprise....the tech actually works.....and, from Kiera's perspective, she's been sent back in time.....and the Older Alec, from the future, seems to have had some part to play in what has happened.
From Violence, Liber8 gradually change to running a campaign of winning over 'Hearts & Minds'...
Kiera finds herself as a fish out of water....wanting to stop the rebellion but also wanting to put back together the pieces of the time machine device and go back home to the future and her family.
As the series goes on, we see flashbacks (flash forwards?!?) of the world in 2077; of the events that transpired on execution day, of the characters and political underhandedness going on....
Was Kiera's going back in time just coincidence or something planned?
The only reminder of her son is a model soldier that he gave her on the morning of the execution.
All the cast play a blinder. Rachel Nichols, as Kiera, does a very nuanced portrayal of the lead role, as does Erik Knudsen, who plays the young Alec. It's a great ensemble.....beautifully shot....great scripts....great story arcs....well paced....great action....great drama....with lots of twists and turns.
The series really does make you think....and it certainly makes Kiera think....that will changing the past effect what happens in the future? Will she be able to get back to her family? Will her family even EXIST in the future?
