Friday, August 30, 2013: Continuum

Friday, August 30, 2013: <i>Continuum</i>

Poor Continuum… despite beating Orphan Black to the airwaves by a full season, the latter made-in-Canada import quickly attracted a media buzz that its predecessor never received. Although, honestly, Orphan Black is awesome enough to deserve all its buzz and Continuum, which ends its sophomore season tonight, well... isn't.

Season 2 tried to shake the premise up a bit, with future cop Agent Cameron ditching the Vancouver police force (that's right -- this is one of the few made-in-Vancouver shows that's actually set in Vancouver) to work in more of a vigilante vein as she continues to pursue the terrorist cell from her native year of 2077. Tonight's finale puts her in the position of having to ensure that she still has a way of returning back to the future, even if it means hurting her teen hacker accomplice, while said teen hacker accomplice has to make up his own mind about whether he wants to help her -- or himself. Yes, but will there be clones? Apparently, Canadian TV is really, really good at clones.

The Continuum Season 2 finale airs tonight at 10 PM on Syfy, opposite a Sarah Silverman-centric half-hour of Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC. Earlier in the night, PBS debuts the terrific future-of-film documentary Side by Side at 9 PM and the Ghost Adventures team visits Sonora, California's Tuolumne Hospital, which apparently has ghosts its walls. Or, more likely, very irritated raccoons.
