Continuum is a new sci-fi drama that's shot in Vancouver and actually set in Vancouver, which is pretty cool. It's also got a cool premise: in 2076, corporations have taken over the government and a revolution to bring back democracy has resulted in the deaths of 20,000 innocents. But just as the revolutionaries are about to be executed, they time travel back to 2012 and accidentally bring a cop (Rachel Nichols) with them. If only Joss Whedon or J.J. Abrams had taken it from there. The pilot episode is deadly serious - no one cracks a joke or has any insights. Pairing Nichols with a teen geek who speaks to her over a frequency he's barely finished inventing seems like a neat idea until you realize there's no romantic potential to these intimate conversations. She's a married mom. Ew. I wish I could send this show back to the storyboard. Then it might have a chance at being good instead of being like every other crappy Canadian sci-fi series ever made.

I hope they cancel his show.  It's stupid way beyond stupid!  Courtney Cox with her botox face makes it hard to look at so we don't watch the show.  In fact, athe actresses in the movies, reality shows (housewives)  or TV etc. are beginning to look alike with their puffy cheeks and poofy lips.  Don't they like themselves enough to be themselves.  Anyways, a farewell to this show would be great.  Not a fan!

I completely disagree with you about The LA Complex. 
I think its a fantastic show... and they've dealt with the serious subjects along with the fluff quite well. 
It adds a nice balance to the show.
