What if in the future the bad guys were really the good guys?
That’s just one of the themes explored in Continuum, a slick, smart trip back to the future. The shot-in-Vancouver sci-fi cop show premiering Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. on Showcase.
Continuum stars Rachel Nichols (G.I. Joe, Criminal Minds) as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the year 2077 vaulted back in time along with a posse of terrorists from the future. The terrorists, including revolutionary leader Travis Verta (Roger Cross), were about to be executed for attacks against the giant corporations which govern the world 65 years down the road. Herded into an execution chamber, the crafty no-goods somehow short-circuit the electrocution thingy and zap themselves into the past, along with Cameron. Will the criminals start causing trouble in our times, perhaps targeting the Haliburtons of 2012? Does that make them bad guys or good guys?
