Both factions of Liber8 and Kiera race to find an interesting item that showed up at a yard sale, and an old friend makes an appearance. Gardiner makes himself generally annoying but shares with Kiera an important bit of information about Escher. Where is this all headed? We don’t know, but it’s someplace grand and we’re ready for the ride! Nitpicks, predictions, and plenty of fan feedback in this week’s podcast.
There have been some real standout musical selections featured in many Continuum episodes, most recently in the final climactic scenes of Split Second (202) and Second Thoughts (203). Although it may seem like they’ve only recently made themselves known on the show and in our podcast, Sweatshop Union has also been featured in two Season 1 episodes: A Stitch In Time (101) and Wasting Time (103). Who can forget the songs from these scenes?

When the Leo Awards announced their nominations, many award-conscious Continuum fans hoped for and expected several nominations for our favorite show. But we were floored and filled with glee to find that the Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Foundation of British Columbia had graced Continuum with a staggering sixteen nominations! The Leos acknowledged everything from directing and design to four separate supporting performance nods. Here’s the rundown…

Our audience has never been in the thousands like some podcasts (we’re looking at you, Fringe Podcast), but the Continuum fandom is a loyal bunch! Our audience continues to grow, even though Season 2 is still only in Canada. It’s certain that some of the US & UK fans aren’t waiting for the actual broadcast (and who can blame them for such enthusiastic impatience), but hopefully they won’t forget to watch for real when Syfy gets with the program! Ratings, you know. But I can’t help but think that our Canadian audience is growing, too, based on the increases shown on the Feedburner graphic below. And the number of people who download the podcast feverishly fast as soon as it’s available is also evident and encouraging. Thanks for listening, everyone – we appreciate you!
Everyone’s having second thoughts! Alec’s not too sure about his new business partnership, Sonya’s doubting her latest takeover strategy, and many Vancouverites are experiencing “thoughts” a “second” time through the new street drug, flash. Mike & Dave discuss the possible paths for Liber8, what Alec’s memories imply, and what on earth Jason is up to. Plus nitpicks, predictions, and, of course, plenty of your fan feedback.
One question that appears to be on many Continuum viewers’ minds is, “When will Carlos stop taking Kiera’s exceptional abilities for granted and finally start suspecting that she’s not what she seems?” According to Victor Webster, that time may not be too far off. In his recent live chat with The Province, a fan asked him that very question. His answer was surprisingly revealing:
“I think at this point, Carlos is wondering many many things. He’s seen too much to not know that Kiera is not everything that she seems. He is keeping a vigilant eye on her and taking mental notes of everything that she does. One of these days, Carlos will have to confront Kiera about all that he has seen and heard.”
In addition to the above statement, Victor had some interesting things to say on the same subject to The Televixen, who published this interview last weekend. Is Carlos’ obliviousness coming to an end this season? What are your thoughts?
