One of the most intriguing and thought-provoking sci-fi dramas on television, Continuum follows a group of fanatical terrorists, known as Liber8, who escaped their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, inadvertently taking City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) with them.  Trapped in the past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department and, with the help of Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster), tries to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.  Now in its third season, there is a new timeline and more than one version of some of the characters to contend with, setting everyone’s life course on a different path.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Victor Webster talked about his character having to rediscover who he is now, being the moral compass of the show, how Carlos is in a serious grey area this season, why the future is not set, the state of Carlos and Kiera’s relationship, that he hopes Carlos will get to kick some more ass, his favorite fight scenes, whether he’d want to travel in time himself, and how he’s looking forward to seeing how it all plays out for Carlos.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

The intense action-horror film Raze tells a story set in a modern day coliseum of sorts, where 50 women are condemned to kill each other, in order to protect their own loved ones.  When Jamie (Rachel Nichols) wakes up after being abducted and finds herself in a concrete bunker, she realizes that she must fight fellow abductee Sabrina (Zoe Bell), in a bare-knuckle brawl to the death.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Rachel Nichols talked about how she got involved with this project, why Jamie was the character she ended up playing, how this was not her first time going head-to-head with experienced and accomplished stuntwoman/actress Zoe Bell, what it was like to do fight scenes in such a confined space, how much her role changed in the final film, gauging just how far they could push the violence, and how freeing it was to do the fight scenes in such a stripped down way.  She also talked about her sci-fi TV series Continuum, currently shooting its third season, and what fans can expect.  Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

From show creator Simon Barry, the sci-fi drama series Continuum has been one of the biggest television surprises, with consistently compelling characters, a complex mythology and a story that always keeps its viewers guessing.  The show follows a group of fanatical terrorists, known as Liber8, who escaped their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, inadvertently taking City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) with them.  Trapped in the past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department and, with the help of Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) and teenage tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), tries to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.

Not wanting to wait until 2014 for answers to some of the big questions and reveals at the end of Season 2, and with nearly all of the friendships and alliances left in question, I spoke to showrunner/executive producer/writer Simon Barry to see what he would be willing to share.  During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Barry talked about what they were looking to achieve with Season 2, that Season 3 will explore sacrifice as a theme, just how damaged alliances are now, what Julian’s (Richard Harmon) role will be and how Carlos will figure into it, delving deeper into the time travel aspect of the show, the Freelancer mythology, adding new characters, and having a good idea of how they’d like the series to end, when that day comes.  Check out what he said after the jump, and be aware that there are spoilers.

Continuum, which is currently airing Season 2 on Syfy, has really proven to be one of the most intriguing and thought-provoking sci-fi dramas on television.  The show follows a group of fanatical terrorists, known as Liber8, who escaped their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, inadvertently taking City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) with them.  Trapped in the past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department and, with the help of Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster), tries to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Victor Webster talked about his whirlwind audition process for the show, how Season 2 feels different from Season 1, that he’s constantly surprised by what’s going on with his character, what’s to come for Carlos and his relationship with Kiera, how he thinks Carlos might react, if he ever learns the truth about Kiera, that Tahmoh Penikett will be returning again this season, how much he enjoys doing stunts and fight scenes, and what Carlos might think, if he were ever to travel to 2077.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

CONTINUUM Season One Blu-ray Review

While I’m a fan of the wackier side of sci-fi shows airing on the SyFy network (Eureka, Warehouse 13), the more dramatic actioner Continuum came as a welcome surprise.  Focusing on a futuristic cop – Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) – who finds herself thrown back in time 65 years to our present day, Continuum explores what happens to the future when events are changed in the past.  The series, created by Simon Barry, could easily have fallen victim to anachronistic gags and time-travel tropes.  Instead, smart writing, fast-paced action and an increasingly complicated plot make Continuum a show worthy of binge watching in a weekend.

Hit the jump for my review of season one of Continuum on Blu-ray.

The sci-fi drama Continuum tells the story of Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in the present day.  When a group of fanatical terrorists escapes their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, Kiera inadvertently goes along for the ride.  Thanks to the assistance of tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), Kiera infiltrates the local police department and forms an alliance with her new partner, Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster), in the hopes that she will find a way back to her husband and son before the terrorists change the course of history.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Rachel Nichols talked about how she came to be a part of Continuum, maintaining the lead role on a show while juggling movies, when she realized how successful the show was, the difference in the humanity of 2077 and the humanity of 2012, making sure that things don’t come too easy for Kiera, the relationship her character has with both Alec and Carlos, having to wear that suit, doing as much of her own stunts as possible, and where the story is headed next.  Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
