As the summer TV schedule gets ready to roll out, the TV Talk App goes from alpha to beta testing, and Dave and I got our new assignment: AMC’s The Killing.
Even though this show is not sci fi, it’s filmed in Vancouver, and you can’t help but smile at the Canadian Continuum cast members showing up everywhere in the first two seasons of The Killing; Richard Harmon, Brian Markinson, Jennifer Spence, Katie Findlay, Tahmoh Penikett, and Patrick Gilmore all have prominent guest appearances in The Killing in addition to their Continuum roles. Perhaps this trend will continue in Season 3, which starts on June 2, as does our new show.
So for most of the summer you’ll be able to catch our TV Talk shows for The Killing and Defiance at the beginning of the week and our beloved Continuum podcast near the end of the week. You won’t be able to escape us!
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.
