Don't believe I'm spoiling anything by saying that I believe that they were just trying to avoid what was going to happen them and the time shift was just an un-wanted bonus. Although I might be looking at it incorrectly, too!
I would like to have a discussion about the way the show is handling time. But I'm afraid that it's going to be a while till most people can participate...
Another good episode.
I really liked how.....
If these guys can run around killing folks and blowing stuff up without any apparent problems then it might well be that they are supposed to be here at/in this time, performing the actions which they are doing.
Go for Marty...
I'm puzzled then how this all can lead to the collapse of governement.
SGU. Best Sci-fi show to come along in decades.
It doesn't make sense to me either. A national government that faces a deficit can raise taxes or print more money or even default on its obligations. But tear up its Constitution and abdicate governance? Not likely.
For now, I'm "letting it go" and focusing on the immediate story. Maybe we'll get a more solid background story, or maybe it'll remain a weak point.
Between Continuum and Person of Interest, does anyone feel like we're being acclimated to the idea of plutocracy and total surveillance? No conspiracy theory here, just a discomfort with these dystopian visions of the present and near future.
Does the lead actress remind anyone else of Jodie Foster, twenty years younger?
I wikied it again Continuum Wiki....I know I have a problem.....
Here's my theory:
I'VE GONE WIKI-MAD!!!!
The Stargate Wiki Network - everything on Stargate and a whole lot more!
Defiance Wiki - a wiki for the upcoming sci-fi show and MMO game!
Revolution Wiki - what happens when the power goes out...
I don't think that the events in the show are supposed to lead to the collapse of governments. Governments will likely fall on their own. The Liber8 guys were merely looking at escaping their prison situation by taking a quick jaunt into the past and and then returning as soon as events allowed.
Go for Marty...
I don't think they intended to go back (or forward in time to their present), remember they were about to be executed when they took the trip back in time.
I think they either intended to go back and stop the Governments from going bankrupt in the first place by planting themselves inside the system, or it was just a plain and simple escape attempt.
However my theory at this stage is....
Oh and what the frak, does William B Davis ever age? He looks the same in this as he did the first time I saw him in the pilot of the x-files!
Thanks I hadn't even thought to goto the series website.
What is the deal with Alec and his mother then? It was the middle of the night when I watched the first 2 episodes and I was tired but I don't remember seeing anything about the death of his mother? imho if she is to die, then it'll be at the hand of the step-father or step-brother (both seem a couple fries short of a happy meal).
I need to get into this series. Hopefully in the next month I can catch up. I've only heard good things about this show.
McKay: You shot me!
Sheppard: Yes, Rodney, I shot you, and I said I was sorry.
Ronon: You shot me, too.
Sheppard: I’m sorry for shooting everyone!
