Continuum follows Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), a CPS officer, as she is forcefully plunged back in time to 2012 from her era of 2077. Riding along on her journey are the fugitives collectively known as Liber8. They intend to change the future. She aims to stop them.
The series is made up of 4 seasons. The 1st features 10 episodes, s2 and s3 include 13 each, and the last one has only 6.
Firstly, the 1st season kicks off awesomely. And ends on an equally brilliant level. Throughout the series there are symbols of capitalism. As the world in 2077 is controlled by a corporate congress.
Season 2 furthers the awesomeness of its predecessor but is more predictable. Yet the 13 episodes are quite entertaining.
Now we move to s3 which is far by one of the worst TV seasons ever. The plot has gone haywire. The character of boy genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen) is exploited with no relation to the narrative. The whole time travel scenario is ruined by this season. The finale makes us feel grateful that it’s finally over. Albeit the finisher itself was plain bad.
Alternatively, season 4 comprises of incomparable action and stupid storytelling. It furthers the trend of the last season with such a poor theme on time travel, that you can only survive it if you concentrate on the action, and not the narrative.

The series finale left much to question. Especially controversial were Cameron’s choices in the concluding season. Nothing made sense. But the action was one of the best I’ve seen. Stephen Lobo, who plays rich businessman Matthew Kellog, showcased amazing acting skills in this closing venture.
All in all, Continuum is a great sci-fi series. It has a lot of plotholes since the onset of the 3rd run. But if you want a futuristic adrenaline-packed show then don’t look elsewhere. And have mercy on the time travel scheme. The series simply imploded itself.
