Continuum is a one-hour police drama centered on Kiera Cameron, a regular cop from 65 years in the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. She is alone, a stranger in a strange land, and has eight of the most ruthless criminals from the future, known as Liber8, loose in the city. Lucky for Kiera, through the use of her CMR (cellular memory recall), a futuristic liquid chip technology implanted in her brain, she connects with Alec Sadler, a seventeen-year-old tech genius. When Kiera calls and Alec answers, a very unique partnership begins. Kiera's first desire is to get "home." But until she figures out a way to do that, she must survive in our time period and use all the resources available to her to track and capture the terrorists before they alter history enough to change the course of the future. After all, what's the point of going back if the future isn't the one you left?
The present unfolds. The future unravels. The rest is history.

As the show deals with time travel, it is only fitting that each episode title relates to that. In the first season, all episodes have the word "Time" in their titles, such as "Wasting Time" or "Playtime".
In the second season the writers expanded on the idea and named each episode something with "Second". This can be read as both the time measurement, but also an indication of the season to which the episodes belong.
Keeping in line with the previous seasons, all episodes in Season 3 includes the word "Minute" in their titles.
Continuing the trend set by the previous seasons, all episode titles the final season contain the word Hour. Very fittingly, the final episode of the final season is called Final Hour. See more
