- The time-travellers’ strife
“I like these strong female role models,” Rachel Nichols says, catching her breath between takes. “Carlos – Victor Webster – had a shower scene the other day. Without his top on. He gets to do all the fun eye-candy stuff, and I get to kill people. It’s gritty.” Read more.

- Fighting the not-so-good fight in Continuum
We can say this for the bleak futuristic dystopia offered up in the new sci-fi series Continuum: At least no one appears forced to fight each other for food. Things, though, are by no means all that rosy in 2077. As the series opens, we hear from a white-haired “terrorist” leader who is talking about striking a blow in support of freedom and against state-run tyranny and all that. Kind of like the Occupy movement, but with bombs instead of pup tents. Read more.

- Rachel Nichols on what it’s like to be Time Cop North in Continuum
I like to ask people what if all of a sudden you woke up in 1947? Everything would be completely different from how you know it. That’s what happens to Kiera: she’s a police officer, a “protector,” from the year 2077 and wakes up in 2012. She’s a future cop, fighting future criminals, in the present day. That’s what one of the things that makes it interesting, that fish-out-of-water element, mixed with that desire to get home to her family. Read more.

- Sci-fi adventure and cop procedural meld in Showcase’s ‘Continuum’
The sci-fi cop drama “Continuum” features wild futuristic fantasies including time travel, invisibility suits and wearable micro-computers but its most provocative ideas are rooted in the here-and-now, says star Rachel Nichols. Read more.

- ‘Continuum’: Everything You Need To Know About The Sci-Fi Cop Show
I’m standing in a drab, monochromatic police department TV set in Vancouver that could quite feasibly serve as the base for any number of procedural police dramas on the air right now. Except this particular police show has something none of the others do: a foxy cop from the future. Yes, the cop and sci-fi genres have been melded together for the hot new summer show “Continuum,” set to debut on Showcase this week. Read more.
