Continuum is a one-hour police drama centered on Kiera Cameron, a regular cop from 65 years in the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. She is alone, a stranger in a strange land, and has eight of the most ruthless criminals from the future, known as Liber8, loose in the city. Lucky for Kiera, through the use of her CMR (cellular memory recall), a futuristic liquid chip technology implanted in her brain, she connects with Alec Sadler, a seventeen-year-old tech genius. When Kiera calls and Alec answers, a very unique partnership begins. Kiera's first desire is to get "home." But until she figures out a way to do that, she must survive in our time period and use all the resources available to her to track and capture the terrorists before they alter history enough to change the course of the future. After all, what's the point of going back if the future isn't the one you left?

Did You Know?
When actors who play the same character but at different stages in life for films and television series that span decades in time, casting directors try to get two actors similar in appearance. Here, William B. Davis
is 6½-inches taller than Erik Knudsen
, both of which play Alec Sadler, old and young respectively. When Kiera first arrived in 2012, Alec was about 17 and should have been at his full height. Even if he were to grow more past age 17, which is rare, he certainly would have been at full height in the last season, when he played a 21 year old man. The producers should have had two actors at least close to each other in height to play Alec Sadler. See more
