CONTINUUM Debut is Highest-Rated Canadian Cable Drama of Year – Updated

Continuum’s debut last night on Showcase was big. How big? 1.7 million Canadians tuned into the two airings. That makes it the  #1 drama on cable this year (see press release)

Originally called Out of Time, Continuum is part sci fi, part police procedural about a future police officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols), who travels back in time from Vancouver in the year 2077 to Vancouver in the year 2012, swept up in an escape by a group of terrorists — Liber8 — who plan to change the future from the past by targeting the corporations that will come to rule the world. Cameron impersonates a present-day police officer and ends up being partnered with detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster), who refuses to give her a weapon in this shootout with the terrorists, filmed in Victory Square this past January. Give her a weapon Fonnegra. She needs one.

PREVIEW: FRINGE Season Four Finale – Brave New World

I’m so relieved that tonight is not the start of Fringe Division’s last stand. We have a whole new season of thirteen episodes for that. Instead, Fringe Division only has to face off against this season’s Big Bad, David Robert Jones, to save two worlds in the season four finale Brave New World.

At some point in the two-part finale, we will get to see the full might of Olivia Dunham’s cortexiphan powers, hopefully aimed straight at David Robert Jones. But first she helps Rebecca Mader’s Jessica, a victim of another of Mr. Jones’s experiments.  I photographed Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham saying goodbye to Lost’s Charlotte in downtown Vancouver’s Cathedral Park on Friday, March 23rd.

The following week, I spotted Fringe filming a fight scene between Joshua Jackson’s Peter Bishop and Jared Harris’s David Robert Jones in the pouring rain on the roof of a building in east Vancouver, near the old British Columbia Sugar Refinery. I have not shared these photos until today, but noticed a clip of Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham with a satellite antenna like the one below in a FOX promo.

This was just one in a week of night shoots for Fringe all over the Vancouver area.Read More »PREVIEW: FRINGE Season Four Finale – Brave New World
