Everything about Continuum, eh?

Continuum interviews and reviews


From Alex Strachan of Postmedia News:

  • 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.

From Scott Stinson of the National Post:

  • 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.

From Jesse Kinos-Goodin of the National Post:

  • 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.

From Bill Harris of QMI Agency:

  • Rachel Nichols goes sci-fi with ‘Continuum’
    Rachel Nichols plays a cop from the future in Continuum, which is shot and set in Vancouver, and debuts Sunday, May 27 on Showcase. Nichols’ character, a “protector” named Kiera Cameron, gets caught in a time-travel escapade that transports her from 2077 to 2012. Read more.

From Annette Bourdeau of Huffington Post Canada:

  • ‘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.

Continuum premieres Sunday on Showcase


Continuum Series Premiere this Sunday, May 27 at 9pm ET/PT Exclusively on Showcase

From a media release:

Tune in to the epic premiere of Continuum, the futuristic police drama starring Rachel Nichols (Criminal Minds, Alias) as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. Continuum premieres Sunday, May 27 at 9pm ET/PT, only on Showcase.

When a group of fanatical terrorists escape their execution in the year 2077, they vault back in time to 2012 accidentally bringing CPS Inspector Kiera Cameron along with them. With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen; Jericho), Kiera must bring down the terrorists before they can change the course of history forever. Desperate to get back to her husband and son, Kiera impersonates a local law enforcement officer to expedite her investigation and forms an uneasy alliance with her new partner, Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster; Castle).

Continuum also stars Roger Cross (24), Stephen Lobo (Smallville), Lexa Doig (V), Omari Newton (Blue Mountain State), Luvia Petersen (The L Word) and Terry Chen (Combat Hospital).


Continuum explores “what if”

From Alex Strachan of Postmedia News:

  • Continuum asks “what if?”
    “What if” is one of the great questions of science fiction. Vancouver writer-producer Simon Barry knew that even when he was a student at the University of British Columbia’s film program. What if, for example, a futuristic, science-fiction TV police procedural were set in Vancouver and filmed in Vancouver, with the city representing itself for a change, instead of filling in for a more rainy, wetter version of, say, Seattle.

On set with Continuum

From Glen Schaefer of The Province:

  • Cop from the future walks Vancouver streets in Continuum
    Actor Stephen Lobo, munching a Caesar salad at a table in the downtown Subeez Cafe, waves at castmate Rachel Nichols as she comes into the café. Nichols joins him at the table and the two talk for a couple of minutes as the flow of servers and customers continues around them, and sidewalk strollers pass by on the other side of the plate glass window. A-and . . . cut. Read more.
