Continuum is a gripping science-fiction television series that aired on Syfy from 2012 to 2015. Set in the year 2077 in a dystopian future, the show follows the story of Kiera Cameron, a police officer from Vancouver who accidentally travels back in time to present-day 2012 during a prisoner transfer. Kiera Cameron, played by Rachel Nichols, finds herself trapped in a time where things are vastly different from what she knew. The technological advancements she used to have access to are absent and she is left alone with no way of getting back to her own timeline. To make matters worse, she discovers that a group of terrorists known as Liber8 have followed her through time and are actively trying to change the course of history by altering events. Kiera finds a temporary ally in Alec Sadler, played by Erik Knudsen, a brilliant young tech genius who is instrumental in developing the futuristic technology that Kiera is accustomed to. Together, they must navigate through the complex and dangerous world of present-day Vancouver, try to stop Liber8 from undoing everything she knows, and find a way back home. Throughout the series, Kiera struggles to deal with the differences in law enforcement and societal norms between her future and present. She faces tough moral dilemmas as she finds herself sympathizing with Liber8's cause, despite their violent methods, as she realizes that some of their goals - such as creating a fairer society - are noble. On the other hand, Kiera also begins to realize the flaws in her own future society, as the past catches up to her and she learns that her world is not as perfect as she thought it was. The show explores a range of social and political themes, from corporate greed and the militarization of police forces, to the ethics of time travel and the dangers of tampering with the fabric of the space-time continuum. Apart from Kiera and Alec, the show features a range of other fascinating characters, including Victor Webster as Carlos Fonnegra, a present-day Vancouver police officer who becomes Kiera's main ally and confidant; Tony Amendola as Edouard Kagame, the enigmatic and charismatic leader of Liber8; Lexa Doig as Sonya Valentine, another member of Liber8 and a skilled hacker; Richard Harmon as Julian Randol, a troubled and rebellious teen who finds himself caught up in Liber8's schemes; and Ryan Robbins as John Doe, a mysterious man who seems to know more than he lets on. Continuum is a fast-paced, action-packed series that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The show's strong writing, great cast, and intricate plot make it a must-watch for sci-fi fans. With its intriguing take on time travel and its exploration of complex social issues, Continuum is a show that is both thrilling and thought-provoking.
