Just got a heads up from my friend Jon in the Canadian north that a new Scifi show is airing tonight (Sunday) at 9pm. CONTINUUM is about a Police officer by the name of Kiera Cameron from the year 2077 who gets transported back to the present day. Think she’s going to help us catch criminals with her futuristic detective skill and her Cellular Memory Recall tech implanted in her brain? Not exactly, because not only she, but 8 criminal terrorist were also transported from the future. They call themselves Liber8 and they will stop at nothing to change their corporate controlled future to their liking.
According to the Official CONTINUUM site, Kiera teams up with a young technology whiz named Alec Sadler. Then she finds a way to become part of the Vancouver Police (it is Canada) and teams up with Detective Carlos Fonnegra of the Special Investigations Unit. Kiera’s goal is to stop the terrorist while finding a way to get back to her own future.
The setup is interesting, where Kiera has a different look at the law, being that she protects corporations in the future, where in present day law enforcement, it’s all about the citizen. Well, at least it’s suppose to be. Her and Fonnegra see things in a very different way. But they are still cops, so protecting each other is still number one priority.
The show stars Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron, Victor Webster as Detective Fonnegra, and Erik Knudsen as boy genius Alec Sadler. Also Roger R. Cross (CW’s ARROW) and Syfy channel veterans Lexa Doig (Stargate SG-1) and Jennifer Spence (Stargate Universe).
CONTINUUM begins tonight (May 27) at 9pm EST. Maybe it will show up on Syfy on day.
