Trivia

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.

Kiera and Liber8 are supposed to travel back 65 years. When Kiera encounters young Alec Sadler, he is about 17 years old. The actors who play Alec Sadler are in real life 50 years apart. Erik Knudsen was 24 years old in the first season and William B. Davis was 74. In Season 2 Kiera indicates that Alec is 18 and refers to him as an 80-year-old man in her time. He would have had to have been 82 when she first traveled back in time.

More good than bad: From 2012-2015, Roger Cross plays the leader of criminals in Vancouver that time travel to 2012 and remain there for a few years. Cross during this same time (2013-2015) played Vancouver Police Sergeant and later Superintendent Boyd Bloom on Motive (2013). In theory, his character on Motive would be supervising the hunt for his character on Continuum. From 2012-2015 he also played a Detective on Arrow (2012), however that series is not set in Vancouver. All of these series were filmed in Vancouver.

Due to the Vancouver location, several actors and actresses appear here as well as in various Hallmark series and movies and Lifetime movies. Here they often get to play against type. One of the leads, Lexa Doig, for example plays good girl Sally in the Auroa Teagrden mysteries, while here she plays a tattooed bad girl. Good guy Victor Webster has played in both Hallmark and Lifetime movies as both good and bad guys.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

When actors who play the same character but at different stages in life for films and television series that span decades in time, casting directors try to get two actors similar in appearance. Here, William B. Davis is 6½-inches taller than Erik Knudsen, both of which play Alec Sadler, old and young respectively. When Kiera first arrived in 2012, Alec was about 17 and should have been at his full height. Even if he were to grow more past age 17, which is rare, he certainly would have been at full height in the last season, when he played a 21 year old man.
