An excellent first season, looking forward to then next one. Story was well written, with some very interesting plot twists.

I have watched all four seasons now. This show is magnificent. But magnificent only where your belief systems take you. If you choose to watch this show, keep an open mind.

Do you believe in time travel? Do you believe there are parallel realities? Are you open to changing your beliefs? This is what this show is about. Are you ready to receive the benefits of this show providing a clearer understanding of a these realities?

Changing beliefs does not happen over night. I honor those who choose to be open to discover what this show brings.

Besides actually being set in Vancouver instead of just filmed there (praise-worthy in itself), this has a decidedly Canadian production feel that I'm beginning to think is ingrained in our culture. The acting and lines have a slightly contrived feel that is typical of Paul Gross and U.S. made-for-TV Christmas dramas. However, the special effects and contrasting plot concepts are excellent. The heroine is a good person defending a bad corporation at odds with bad people fighting for a good cause. Some things are a little far-fetched but this is meant to be a character drama. It's more like Due South meets 12 Monkeys, and not at all like Time Cop. I binge-watched season 1 and will seek out the rest.

This Canadian mini-series is an action drama with a time travel theme. It failed to hold my interest after a few episodes.

Very disappointing I must say- I had heard good things about the series- so imagine my surprise when I watched it and found the idea of time travel to be virtually ignored ( at least to the extent that the show is ABOUT time travel it seems to play a relatively minor role ). The show sets up some tremendously interesting ideas, and then fails to follow through- relying instead on shallow characters played by good looking actors, and enough inane action to keep viewers interested. It's also odd how they chose to make each character be a different ethnicity- is it supposed to be the United Nations of television shows? I would recommend that science fiction fans give this vapid show a miss- I certainly will not be watching any more seasons.

This is the best SiFi in the past decade, the last one was Farscape..Their concept of time travel is conceived in quantum theory, that right there puts it light years ahead of the typical SiFi fodder if you can't follow the plot it's because it's made clear as the series progresses, it's kind of the theme obvious in the first seasons episodes iterations..

Hi! I am interested in checking out this series. Thanks all for your comments. I am commenting today to say that you can go into the library website and put in requests for them to purchase items they don't have yet. I just did it the other day for season 2 of Escape to Chimp Eden. Hope this helps. You all have a great day!

I thought this was going to be just another a routine police procedural with time machine frosting.

But both the characters and the speculative sci-fi history became more interesting as the series progressed.

I'll be looking forward to Season 2.

( Darn ! ....just found out that the NYPL has Season 3, BUT it does NOT have Season 2 !!?)

Good actors of all ethnicity and computer animation in this Canadian sci-fi but the sub plots were open looped and unsatisfying ... no doubt baiting audiences to watch season two. Wonderful shots of Vancouver sights.

Introducing Kiera Cameron: 2077. My time, my city, my family. When terrorists killed thousands of innocents, they were condemned to die. They had other plans. A time travel device sent us all back 65 years. I want to get home, but I can't be sure what I will return to if history is changed. Their plan? To corrupt and control the present in order to win the future. What they didn't plan on, was me.
