Last night, I watched Andy Mikita’s director’s cut of episode #113, the big season finale. All I can say is: Whoa! I envy all of you who’ll be coming into the show fresh when it premieres on June 12th. Believe me, you’re in for such a treat. We’re not just going to surpass expectations, we’re going to blow them away by delivering a scifi series you’re going to LOVE: character-driven, ship-based science fiction full of action, adventure, shocks, surprises, dazzling visual effects, and, above all else, a sense of fun.
I want to get the word out early and often. I don’t want to wait until AFTER we air to start bringing fans on board or rewarding them for their viewership. I want to get things started early by making you all part of the Dark Matter family BEFORE we air. All of these sneak peeks, photos, interviews, trailers, and endless blog posts are here (and there) because I want you all to feel that this is as much your show as it is ours. Take ownership in it. The Dark Matter army is strong and getting stronger!
Executive Producer Jay Firestone already has some awesome amazing giveaways planned to coincide with the show’s launch – among them, limited edition 3D models of our various ships. When the time comes, I’ll be offering up special signed, annotated scripts like the ones I did for Stargate – with hand-written notes and insights on every page. Official Dark Matter merchandise is on the way but, while we wait, I’ll be giving offering up some of those custom t-shirts pictured in yesterday’s blog entry. And just wait until we hit San Diego Comic Con…

Yeah, I ramble but, in all fairness, I wasn’t THAT drunk.
