Continuum

Continuum.

I'm referring to the science fiction TV show. I do not have TV, but do have a Netflix subscription and have recently started watching this show.

I have an alarming observation to report. The entire thesis of the show is suspect. It is premised upon a 9/11 style bombing of a building important to the current (2077) "Corporate Government". The criminals escaped during their execution, into the past, from 2077 to 2013, with a cop in pursuit.

The groups name is "Liberate", also painted as "Liber8".

They are for Liberty. Against corporatism. etc.

Sound familiar?

Sounds like US, (except the bombing part.)

So, what are we to glean from this?

If you are for liberty and against global corporate government, that...

YOU ARE A TERRORIST!

What do you think about that? My thoughts are, we have a show who's entire premise is to indoctrinate people into obedience to the state. If you see something, say something. If you see Liberty loving Constitutionalists, then you need to call Janet!

Again, what do you think? Thanks for reading. I'm only offering an observation and an opinion. That should be cool. This is the DP.

I watch this show, Honestly you are reading into it a bit deep

Continuum one of the rare sci-fi shows on the SyFy channel that's actually fairly well done and intelligent lol. So I downloaded Season 1 and watched it over the course of a few days.

I don't know how far along into the season you are, but if you keep watching you will see that the show deliberately does not take a stand either way:

They don't 100& demonize the 'terrorists': although they obviously do not paint them as noble for resorting to violence, their grievances are portrayed as legit.

Because they certainly take pains to portray the corporate globalist government as dehumanizing, totalitarian and evil. They do not portray it in a positive light whatsoever.

The main characters core struggle revolves around getting home to her family of course, but she becomes more and more torn about her mission as an enforcer for the state and questions her values pretty hard.

No, I think it does a pretty good job at laying out the issue for the viewer to contemplate what's going on - it stimulates thought and that was the producer / writers intention (from an interview)

Further into it, and seeing some of your same observations.

Season 1 Episode 9 so far. Seeing some of the same things you are now that I get further into it. Anyways, I thought it was interesting, and figured this show has peeked others curiosity here.

Person Of Interest

another interesting show to watch... as far as TV goes

9-11 was a panda job.
