Bachman’s Best – Continuum

rachel nichols continuum


The best thing I watched last week was Continuum. The first season is available on Netflix instant queue and it is a fun, tech frenzied good time. Imagine Time Trax with a better plot, superior CGI, and better writers, that’s Continuum.

Starring the lovely Rachel Nichols who some of you will know as Scarlett from G.I. Joe:The Rise of Cobra or the luscious green lady Gaila from the 2009 Star Trek film.  Honestly only knowing her from these 2 roles I was unsure that I would enjoy a show set squarely on her shoulders. I really just didn’t know if she had the acting chops to carry a show. So I was joyfully surprised to find out that she is more than capable of leading a show that can be problematic sometimes because of all the characters and ideas that it throws at the audience while keeping the audience entertained and excited to see what’s next.  Nichols plays the part superbly making you feel the fish out of water aspect of the character as she tries to learn to live in a world that is far different from her own while still doing the job she feels compelled to do.

Plus the addition of Victor Webster and Lexa Doig make sure almost every scene in this series has something nice to look at where ever you look. It’s got action, tech, time travel, crazy who done it plots, and pretty people, what more could you ask for? So the next time you can’t decide on something to keep your interest for a weekend, give Continuum a view, you won’t regret it.  Hopefully we’ll see season 2 hit the Netflix instant queue before 2077.


Raised on a diet of Stephen King novels, Bruce Lee action, John Landis films, and horror flicks by his loving mother, Anthony spent his formative years reading everything he could get his hands on and spending far too many hours in his room watching movies while drawing.  Anthony currently spends his evening coloring comics whilst Netflix plays in the background. After starting his own podcast The Next Element, Anthony found a group of like minded individuals on Twitter and found that if invited to a podcast the desire to blab takes him over.  Anthony is Knight of the Pod Table on the Spoiler Alert Theater podcast and can be found guest hosting all over the podiverse. Anthony has dealt with a 23 year addiction to comics and a longer addiction to movies. Even if he hasn't seen it or read it, he probably has an opinion about it.

    I’m still not sure on this series. I’m about 5 episodes into season 1 and its really hit or miss for me.

  2. Well thanks for giving it a shot at least. What isn’t working for you?
