Q:So do you think even after all the prolonged fan requests for a fourth season of #Continuum, it is now foregone that we are beating a dead horse and it just isn't going to happen?
I would like to be hopeful for a renewal, but in all the instances that I remember of show decisions taking is long they were all cancelled. There are several things hurting the show, in the official numbers for the show the 18-45 (or 48) demographic number is the smallest this season of all three seasons. Less than one third of the viewers are shown in that demographic which is not good. Usually the fix is to reduce the number of actors or some of the larger salaries, but I assume the show is relatively cheap to produce. But if they were serious about the show, I believe it would have been renewed in the first month after the finale.
I may be surprised at some point, but in reality it has been too long to be positive IMO. :/
Continuum - Eyes On Fire [Season 3 Tribute]
i’m totally convinced that continuum is a sneaky canadian way of telling the world about where the usa is going.
Dude, Continuum has an evil company called Sonmanto that, in the present, produces food.
They’re not being sneaky about anything.
In the few short months since I started this side blog things have been moving rather fast. Recently, I asked my good friend tickledbynichols to come board and run the blog with me. We just finished the first Continuum Appreciation Week which went far better than I expected. All the posts are archived in this post.
I first started this blog as means to separate out my posts on Rachel Nichols and Continuum from my main blog timelockdoctor. They are many and I thought they could live on their own and it looks like I was correct. All my posts are archived here. tickledbynichols has done her own fair share of Rachel Nichols and Continuum Posts and they can be found here.
This is my follow forever list of people that have helped or contributed or just as big of fans as us. :)
I can’t thank you enough for following me and by extension loving the show Continuum. I can’t thank tickledbynichols enough for wanting to come on board with my little blog and help out. :)
I’m rewatching Continuum, and I just got to the episode that got me off the fence and on the bandwagon- season 1, episode 6, Times Up.
Not only does it have a great built-in critique of Black Bloc tactics (I could write a novel about my utter disdain for them) but it’s the first time you really get a taste of how deep Kiera’s programming runs, and that the show is not trying to make her out to be Batman (always correct, always moral, but angsty still) but a complicated, nuanced, and even damaged character and narrative.
I mean, when the show’s resident skeevy guy tells your lead “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” that’s kind of a clue things are getting interesting. I had an inkling, but this was the episode that really confirmed for me that Simon Barry has some knowledge of radical politics, because he introduces questions that seem to almost be directed at us, fights we have in our movements all the time.
It also warms my heart that Continuum provides an opportunity for PoC to play “terrorists,” but to be fleshed out characters, to explore what the word really means and to get people to understand that the framing of a physical resistance is not the same as the on-the-ground running of that resistance. The only ( and I actually don’t know about Kagame, I can’t find an ethnicity listed for Tony Amendola) white member of Liber8 is a woman, and from interviews I’ve read Luvia Peterson, the actress who plays Garza, is bisexual.
Also this may be one of the only episodes where Carlos gets to save Kiera (guy gets his ass kicked a lot)
Also Sonya’s line “No wonder the corporations changed the history books. We forget out history and they repeated it.” and then she makes a gun with her fingers and… *GOOSEBUMPS*
I really wish more people watched/discussed/gif’d/metaed/discussed/posted Continuum. Because it’s AMAZING. ROUGH and GRAY in so many directions but amazing.
