    Considering it's spelled "Lieutenant" regardless of how it's pronounced I'd say it's the same word. Any country still using "The Queen's English" pronounces "Lieutenant" as "Leftenant".

    Just power-watched the first four episodes and I like it so far. I especially enjoy seeing some 'old friends' from other recent Syfy shows.

    OH! Somehow I thought it was in Seattle or some place Northwest US. I just looked on Wikipedia. It is in Vancouver. Then it makes perfect sense to use the British pronounciation.

    Yup. Takes place in Vancouver, however she tried to pass herself off at first as a Portland police officer.

    The problem I am having with this show is that they are killing off so many civilians with no thought of future repercusions. If you believe everyone is connected somehow, then killing several people an episode would change the future dramatically.

    Even with the above, if you throw out any reasoning about time travel, the show is entertaining. :)

    Well, Kellogg and Kiera have mentioned several times that she cannot expect to return to the same future they came from.

    We watched 2 or 3 episodes of season 1 before it lost our interest. Glad it'll be back, though. We might give it a second go.

    Leftenant is the proper way to pronounce the British version (which was first) of Lieutenant. Much like Colonel in English and Coronel in Spanish. I've often wondered why "Colonel" is pronounced "kernel" in English.

    But they don't really know whether or not that's true.

    Right. I'm just saying that the writers aren't ignoring the issue.

    Uh...

    Yeah. Many moons ago. In the interests of full disclosure, and since I still have never lied on the internet (believe or don't), I must admit I have. Not proud of it, and wished I never did, actually. Had trouble finding my keys and my shoes for a couple years there.

    You know you may have chosen the wrong path when you go into one room to check the time so you can set a clock in the other room, but by the time you get there you forget what the first clock says...eight times in a row (just one example of what really happened). Thankfully, that was temporary........I think. And that did not happen under the influence, that was what things were like after not being under the influence for some time. Again, I recommend against that. Be curious, but best be curious about something else.

    It does seem to answer certain universal questions we all have about the universe, but we will all probably get those answers in due time anyway.

    But then that explains a lot, doesn't it :grin:

    So far, this second season, in my opinion, is stinking up the airwaves.

    It seems to have lost the plot.

    I'm a little lost this season. But for some reason, either my series link somehow changed, or syfy changed their air date information. Only the first episode recorded. It took me until this week to figure it out, then try to find out how many I have missed. Was last night ep3 or 4 of this season? I had to record one VOD and then I got last nights back on the recording schedule.

    Some of my confusion is from not being sure if I have seen them all in order or not. The rest is because the plot is strange now.
