    The funniest part of this season is the boy genius working at the TV version of Best Buy complete with a jerk boss. I wonder if they are using the set that was used for "Chuck"? I laughed and laughed when the boss couldn't figure out what happened to the network which now produced all his reports automatically and sent them to "headquarters". When he found out, he ordered everything put back the way it was!!

    Not the same set as Chuck since Continuum is filmed in Vancouver and Chuck was filmed in LA.

    As for the season, I'm enjoying this season as much as last, but the flow isn't quite as good. Lots of jumping around from one thing to another. The chase scene was great .. old-school carnage rather than CGI (well, the missle might have been CGI .. :lol:)

    i can say one thing .. I think I miss the mole. It's distracting that it's not there which is quite weird to me.

    OK. I admit I was skeptical. So I recorded all of both seasons so far.

    After monitoring this thread, I thought I'd give it a try this Summer and we loved ep 1 and 2. It may be the best scifi show on TV in 2013.

    It's been four years since "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", the last potentially great scifi series produced in the U.S. but not produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, was cancelled by the world. Sigh.

    Of course,, J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot gave us "Lost", "Alcatraz", and "Fringe" plus is giving us "Person of Interest" and "Revolution". Despite the argument I've gotten here that "Person of Interest" is not futuristic enough, so far I don't think we've got the computer capacity or algorithms yet and I think it is a meaningful scifi premise given the current controversy. I don't like "Revolution" but my wife does so we watch it. Maybe I'll like next season after the world is blown up.

    But "Continuum", like "Haven", makes me think it is possible to have a scifi show on TV even though it requires the energy of the Canadians. I'm not sure what scifi TV show aficionados would do without Canada. Thank you Canada.

    I enjoyed Season 1 quite a bit, but season two is pretty disappointing so far.

    The best scenes in S1 were with Alec in his lair helping Keira in the field. Their interaction was the best aspect of the show.

    You never know. Wait until they catch Snowden and see what other information he has stolen... :contract:
