Syfy will gain a strong new piece of television in a couple months, when the Canadian time-travel drama Continuum debuts. Syfy just announced the premiere date for Continuum: Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. And Syfy has bought both seasons one and two of the show, which means that the 13-episode second season could air soon after its Canadian airing.

I was a big fan of the show during its first ten-episode run in Canada — although the season finale turned the show's premise on its head in a way that still has me scratching mine. It's definitely a great addition to Syfy's Monday night lineup, especially since it's a piece of straight-up science fiction, which asks some thought-provoking questions about corporate domination of politics and the relationship between power and responsibility.
