New Series Continuum - Evil Organization "Liberate" - What are they saying?

New Series Continuum - Evil Organization "Liberate"

In a future run by corporations that took over after a government financial collapse, Liberate is the evil group. They escape execution to our present day to try to change the future. A lone cop from the future is the good guy in this series.

I am sure what they are trying to portray here. Can anyone tell?

"When a group of fanatical terrorists escape their planned execution in 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, they inadvertently take City Protective Services officer Kiera Cameron with them. Trapped in a more “primitive” past, Kiera infiltrates the local police department to try to track down the terrorists before they change the course of history.

Rather ironic, isn't it?

The hero of the story is a member of an organization which is protecting the status quo of corporate rulers and she's packing heavy.
All the talk of armed revolution we see on various sites will remain just that until enough individuals come to identify themselves with people such as those portrayed as the thugs known as Liber8.

If not us than who?

I felt the same way

You have to get to through the second season. There is a larger agenda going on, and the roles they all play in the time line.

"What Are They Saying?"

They are saying, "stop watching TV".

I really like this show

But God Almighty that made me laugh hard.

this show is great

you get to watch hillary clinton looking politicians get shot in the head as they are about to open their mouths to speak (lie)... i'm enjoying the show immensely

Not sure if I like or dislike this show...

From the beginning in watching this show, even as a scifi fan, I have found a few things disturbing as often is the case with things that come out of Hollywood (not all shows can be written like Atlas Shrugged).

1) starts using the "t" word to define a group called "Liberate".

2) then associates this group with an event much like 9-1-1 where a building is collapsed (displayed at the start of each episode).

3) The "Liberate" bad guys are trying to prevent a corporate run future.

4) What subliminal message are these associations sending to the public?

Agreed

I like the show as well. The wild card in the show is the kid who helps her when she arrives in the past. He doesn't like how things have turned out in the future, so his future self helps the radicals escape. I love time travel stuff. With the paradoxes it takes guts to write about it. Probably why so few actually do.

This is one of the few shows on TV worth watching lately

I absolutely love this show.

Your question has come up on this board before, but the short answer is that the writer and producer of the show is deliberately *not* taking a stand in supporting one point of view over another.

ie. it is deliberately ambiguous to get the viewer to Think.

And for anyone who enjoys this kind of show, and is capable of paying attention to the twists and turns of the plot and their relevance to current events, it works.

The show makes you carefully consider the issues, while being entertaining. Good stuff.
