... Question: What's your opinion of Continuum? It's really an all-around good show even if it's considered "science fiction." The episodes this second season are more dramatic in the storylines, all of the actors are very good, and the way that parts of the stories from 2077 are being melded into the 2013 stories is fantastic. It's a shame that the basic networks cannot bring us shows like this instead of all of the celebrity/reality shows that they waste their time on. — Karen

Matt Roush: You make it sound like science fiction is somehow some sort of second-rate pastime. Which makes me wonder why you'd be watching something on Syfy if that's the case. Regardless, I think I'd enjoy Continuum more if it felt a bit more sci-fi (a feeling I've had about many of Syfy's shows in recent years). I'm much more intrigued by the glimpses we get of the future than much of anything that's happening in the present (not unlike how I felt about the first season of Revolution, when the flashbacks to the world right after the blackout were so much more compelling than most of what was happening in the hear-and-now). I wish I was as gaga over the acting on Continuum as you are, but I'm afraid that in a year that gave us Orphan Black, this pales in both vision and execution...
