It is a repeat of season 1 and is well worth watching.

Geektown are thinking September, as it started then in 2012.

But actual start date, well you could try emailing syfy as I have, you may get lucky, as I havent had a reply from mine.

But it is an easy mistake to make.

It seems Continuum {Season 1} started in the 'US', in January on the Syfy channel.

Thursday night at 10pm

I've ringed it in the Radio Times..............

Must say though that i do tend to watch the first 15-20 minutes of episode ones of a lot of series but then give up.............they've got to grab me quick !

Really? I don't think that's a fair chance. I normally give a show about eight episode to sink in.

Especially as there are a lot of shows past and present that didn't start out too strong but as it continued, it got a lot better.

Really? That sounds a little premature. I think a series needs at least a couple of hundred (full, 1 hour) episodes before you can judge whether it will be any good or not.

Actually I agree with the original - though personally I tend to give a show a "chance" up to the first ad-break. Either it's hooked me by then, or it hasn't. Occasionally a show has such an inexperienced writer that they mess up the intro and it only starts to get good later. Luckily there are so many repeats, +1s, "a chance to catch up" and reruns that there's little possibility of ever missing a show that you want to watch - unless you're really determined to.

Frankly there are too many alternatives to watching merely average TV to make putting up with bad telly a necessity.

I can't recall if Continuum was 'grab you by the throat' good in the first 15 mins - but it was one of my favourite shows last year. It benefited from there being a lively thread here though, with plenty of theories about what was going on. Maybe there'll be one for this run for new viewers.

I usually give at least a whole episode a go - though embaressingly I did give up half way through Spartacus episode 1. Luckily I gave it another go as its now one of my favs of recent years.

I don't watch a lot of telly that isn't live sport, news, docus............so I like to have only 1 or 2 dramas on the go at any one time, and a couple of comedies

So I am prety ruthless............if they don't grab me quick, they're out...............if I only want 2 hour long shows a week there's plenty of choice ! (At the moment I've only got 'The Walking Dead', I'm not watching any other series)

I've also get really fed up in the last few years with the trend for drama series makers to make everything so complicated with parallel stories, dead ends, flashbacks, flash sideways, flash forwards etc...........I can't be bothered with any more 'L
ost' or 'Save The Cheerleader' things............I want to slump in front of the telly with something simple and maybe have a bit of a nap for 20 minutes and not feel like I've lost the plot............

For me it wasn't but I'm certainly glad I stuck with it, great surprise show of the year! Can't wait for S02 after the finale of S01.

I have series linked this show. I missed it the first time. There are loads of sci-fi shows i need to get into. I would be very happy if Sci-fi started re-running Lost girl and Eureka from the start.

I watched the first episode last night and enjoyed it, plan to continue with the rest of the first season.

However, I came across a spoiler about the finale (my own fault ) and discovered that
Spoiler


*Possibly didn't need to use spoiler tags, but better to be safe than sorry.
