Just watched.................that was OK

How would I sum it up............

Sigourney Weaver babe does an Arnie Terminator job, gets sent back in time with bunch of 'terrorists' who might turn out to be freedom fighters.............teams up with 'hunky' cop and geek kid to hunt down said 'terrorists'

Geeky kid is the future corporate dictator who the 'terrorists' are probably looking for

that's what I got so far.............but I'll stick with it, see if there's any twists..............

I gave up halfway through episode two.............

I couldn't tell what anyone was saying..............they're all mumbling rather than talking

Too much trouble trying to follow it

What an odd complaint - surely more to do with the poster's audio equipment or hearing than the show itself?

Anyway, I really liked season 1. The slow pace of the story arc was a bit frustrating at times, but some great twists and thoughtful little tweaks of standard TV SF. I'm looking forward to getting the blu ray (from the US as it only seems to be on DVD in the UK) and season 2.

I'm currently watching The Walking Dead and repeats of DS9 as my drama series and I don't have any problem with the dialogue on those shows

It isn't just Continuum but off the top of my head I can't think of another one right now, but it is a reason why I'll give up on a show fairly quickly

If they can't bothered to speak I can't be bothered to listen........

Just for interest I've stuck 'mumbling on tv' into google and it appears to be a more common complaint than you think..........here for example is an article in the Mail from a couple of months ago...........

I take your point, but I suspect loss of hearing acuity is the source of most of the complaints about mumbling. It certainly is in my family.

Some shows will have better sound than others of course, but as sound quality drops, intelligibility will be lost first to those with some hearing loss I'm afraid.

The Daily Mail readership is hardly skewed towards younger people (like many "serious" newspapers).

I suffer hearing loss and struggle with deep voices or mumbling as has been mentioned. Yet I could hear every word on this and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Watched the pilot and found it rather good in the second half. I have episode 2 recorded. But i am already majorly impressed by Rachel Nicholls. I thought she was very weak in The Inside and Alias, but it's been several years since both those shows

There is no mumbling. You are just having trouble with a combination of an accent that is foreign to you and somewhat "soft" voices by certain people in the show.

Anyone know what's happened to this ?

After about 5 episodes it's disappeared from the schedules this week - it's not on tonight nor is it on in the usual repeat slot tomorrow night

Perhaps Season 2 will be shown over here a couple of weeks after the repeats of Season 1 have finished

ok, cheers..........

seems a bit strange to have a week off in the middle of a repeated series !

I was pretty much right

Syfy have announced a start date for Season 2

You need to understand the concept of people sharing opinions.

And telling people their opinion is wrong is also sharing an opinion. It arguably doesn't add to productive discussion, but simply calling something rubbish doesn't either.

Thought I saw an oblique reference to it during an ad break in Defiance tonight. Just the words " coming soon" but with the looped letter "o" from the show's logo.

This was a while back, but I've only just seen it. Anyway, what a bizarre response. I'm pretty sure I know what one is, thanks. If someone watches the show and thinks it's rubbish, that's their opinion.

It's not a matter of right and wrong, it's how different people view the show. I personally really like it.

Done all season 1 now and really enjoyed it.
Though episode 10 was really good to and you find out much more.
Does any one know when season 2 starts in UK on syfy?
