You need to manually set it to record. Directv & other providers are using the original Canadian airdates and it doesn't pick these up on a season pass.

Fortunately there are more re-airs this season than last.

I enjoyed the first two season on BD so much that I bought season 3 on VUDU this afternoon. I will just wait a few days until it shows up in my account. $30 to not have to watch commercials for wrestling is worth it.

I checked 5 after 10 and mine was not recording!! I set the 12am recording and will watch tomorrow. Super excited to see where this goes. Usually I dislike "previously on" since it foreshadows where the forthcoming story line is headed. In this case I think I'll need it!

So last we left our gangs, if I remember correctly:

All of Liber8 was in future limbo jail
Kira was also in future limbo jail
Emily died
Alec traveled to the past in an attempt to save Emily
Carlos and Betty linked up with Julian to help the Liber8 cause
Police captain was going police state and was the beginning of the future police force that Keria came from.

If I recall though, to start season 2, in a "flashback" future Keria had a bad dream, which turned out to be the "present" Keria's predicament and attempted escape.

Great start.

Looks like they are taking a totally different direction now and using time travel to re-write a lot of season 2. I think that's a wise choice by Barry and his writers. Before Kiera got zapped into that prison, I think they sort of wrote themselves into a corner. At least it allowed them to get Carlos back into the storyline since the previous version went on the run with Betty. And now Kiera has to fix a screwed up timeline. They are really upping the science fiction aspect of the show.

Young Alec is totally obsessed with changing the past and Kiera has to make sure the right Alec (since there is 2 now) survives to live until 2077.

That was an amazing start.

I watched the 1st two seasons on Netflix and couldn't wait for this to start. However, it's going to suck having to wait a week now between episodes.

Definitely the most addictive show on TV right now, although the time travel stuff is starting to be a bit difficult to keep up with for me.

So that was interesting!

I wonder who went back 1,000 years to start the freelancer movement. Also, I wonder how they got their tech.

I guess the dots are a way to keep tabs on who is authorized in on the movement. Ok suppose Escher was. Member and then went rouge. Speaking of, I'm willing to bet he isn't dead.

I wonder why Keria was so quick to kill her past self and not Alec. Why is there the possibility of a correct Alec but not a correct Keria.

Still unsure what the full story is with the Liver8/Freelancer.

The current state really leaves some interesting thoughts. The lady said Destiny isn't set; however for all we know the beginning of the series was the culmination and all of the events are still bringing us full circle.

I am caught up with the Canadian airings and all I can say is, I really like the crazy direction this show has taken.

This was definitely a wild and new direction for the series. I think the days of it being a cop procedural are long over.

Yeah, I'm 3 episodes in of this 3rd season, and the show is on a fucking role, and I have no idea where it's gonna go, in a good way!

I can't remember if Carlos has figured out Betty is a mole at this point in the timeline. Anyone know?

And was Alec's comments to Kellog what led to Emily shooting Escher?

These time travel rules are gonna take getting used to. It's weird to think that the timeline of the last 2 seasons has been destroyed.

Well, I liked this episode, and what's going to say that it will be hard to write this season, given the route they have taken, multiple timelines, but according to some of you they are doing right.

We will see.

Well I don't think last 2 seasons are fully gone. Both Kira and Alec only went back 1 week. So there should be some key differences, but a lot stays the same. They only have the opportunity to tweak essentially the last 1 or 2 episodes of season 2.

Keria 2.0 didn't kill Keria 1.0. She found her dead body on the lab floor. Alec 2.0 turned off the security cameras so it's unknown who killed her. The immediate suspects would be Kellogg, Emily or Jason. I don't remember anyone else with access.

I also think we will see Echer again. The Liber8 turned Freelancer was brought back from the dead with no explanation, yet.

Betty should still be a Liber8 mole right?

The actor who plays Julian is on a new show so I wonder if we will see less of him.

Which it means it could have been K2.0 eh?
