My first Dark Matter (the t.v. series!) interview is in the books. Head on over to WatchPlayRead.com for my chat with Ryan Thomason in which I discuss casting challenges, the various Stargate–Dark Matter connections, and the prospect of pug cameos: http://watchplayread.com/wpr-talks-joseph-mallozzi-creator-syfys-new-series-dark-matter/
“I’ve always found it difficult to draw side by side comparisons between shows. If anything, I’d say our series is reminiscent of a mixture of various SF shows of the past (Blake’s 7, Farscape, Firefly, and, of course, Stargate) and a couple of non-SF sources (The Dirty Dozen, The Magnificent Seven, The Thunderbolts comic book seris). But if I HAD to pick one show I’d draw the closest parallels to in terms of world and tone, it would be an animated series called Cowboy Bebop. Check it out if you haven’t already seen it. It’s awesome.”
Wow. It’s unbelievable how quickly these sets are going up. Hell, the gang in construction is so fast that they’ve taken to hanging around the Art Department in anticipation of the latest floor plans.
As the bridge goes up, so do the corridors.
Trevor considers the work-to-date. Fortunately, he liked what he saw – which meant we didn’t have to tear it all down and start over again.
At this rate, we’ll have our sets up well before our target date – meaning construction will have plenty of time to build me that soap box racer!
