Dark Matter’s second episode airs tonight on SyFy and Space Channel at

10:00 p.m. EST/7:00 PST

And 10:00 PST

I’ll be live tweeting through both broadcasts.  Who’ll be joining me?

In preparation for tonight’s big event, I’ve been dropping a few sneak peek screen caps on twitter…

The fallout.
The fallout.
The Android and FIVE bond.
The Android and FIVE bond.
Who's the baddest?
Who’s the baddest?
Don't mess with TWO.
Don’t mess with TWO.
Panic on the bridge.
Panic on the bridge.
Trouble comin' at ya!
Trouble comin’ at ya!

So, who is the baddest crew member?


I want you to rank them, #1-#7, from “super badass” to “cause for concern”.

My rankings are
1. Four — You have to watch out for the strong silent types
2. The Android — Did you see her kick everyone’s butt last week?
3. Two — She is 2Boss, do not mess with her.
4. Three — He seems to shoot first ask questions later
5. Six — He is papa bear don’t mess with his family
6. One — He’s always willing to do the right thing, could this be a ruse
7. Five — She is the wild card, until I know more about her she is concerning.
The order will probably change after watching each episode. LOL


I should be on Twitter tonight.

I’m not sure about the rankings – I keep juggling them around. But, I always have to put THREE at the top, because – guns. Remember that scene in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, where the sword wielding guy just gets shot by Indiana? That.

Settling in pretty good now in the rental house. The birds are here now, so it actually feels like (a noisy) home again!


The Android and Five Bond…. could be the name of your new indie band Joe.


I just had a delicious dinner of filet mignon and wine and a roasted beet and goat cheese salad and wine and now I’m eating chocolate…with wine…so I can’t really think straight (though my typing is much faster and more accurate – weird). However, I think CathyL pretty much smacked the finishing nail dead center with a sledge hammer.

I have both Killjoys and Dark Matter set to record. Hubby is watching Defiance (which I like, but was too afeared of getting attached to characters that will probably die). I’m such a weenie…I should just stick to watching Minions and stuff razz



Gosh, that is way too difficult to rank them.
Most dangerous: Ryo (Four) — the swords — quiet is dangerous.
Next: Marcus (Three) Reckless, unpredictable, out for himself
Next: Portia (Two) Powerful, commanding, kicks ass.
Next: Zobot I trust no android, robot, or computer. I think she is physically powerful enough to toss armies away if she wanted to.
Next: Griffin (Six) He has a teddy bear like presence but teddy bears can be scary. (just google scary teddy bears)
Next: The Kid (Five) I think maybe she was a killer that they were taking into custody.
Last: Jace (One) I bet he is wanted for all those crimes because he was helping out some civilization.


I agree with CathyL I would rank them the same way for much the same reasons.

Yeah, you’re right das. Defiance killed off one of my favorite characters last week in the season opener. And your dinner sounds delicious!

5, Android, 1, 6, 3, 4, 2. The character of Five is my favorite. And Jodelle is terrific. I loved her in SGA’s Harmony–“And I don’t not like you.” See you on Twitter soon!


OMG, those tweet fingers were really a busy ones tonight, another awesome show!! Which episodes are the two part show? I don’t like “to be continued”” arghh!!! I did love the naming of the guns!


Sorry for the bolds. Missed the closer. Again. I’ll blame my 40 mile bike ride. I’m not really *that* mad at Defiance.

Episode 2 of Dark Matter was excellent. No spoilers.


Hi Joe
Another fine episode. Now there are only 11 left….



Can’t wait to watch the episode! Looks bloody fantastic from then teasers I’ve seen thus far.

I’ve recently found out that my buddy Seth Molson has designed quite a few playback screens for the show (including the docking sequence). Speaking of which, you asked me earlier this week on twitter to remind you about more pictures of the playback screens. I’ve just checked out he pictures of the shuttle you posted, they have me all giddy. I’ll post them to /r/FUI asap.

God I love the design on the show, the wardrobe, the set design, the props, the details, the atmosphere and lighting. Everything. I’ve missed this – a ship-based show, I mean. I’ve missed that a lot.


“Slashy Slasherton” smile

Is “Bubba” named for Bubba?

What’s “twitter jail”?|


Twitter jail? How does one get in Twitter jail? lol.



Okay… stuff to say…



Joe…how did that happen?


Android – a sarcastic robot is always the worst
6 – quiet, maybe too quiet
4 – swordy, too swordy
5 – could do or be anything
2 – calm, capable leader who must be devious enough to lead this bunch
1 – without memory, does the true self come out?
3 – loves the guns, but easy to predict

And obviously I’m wrong about all of this smile

Missed the early showing of Ep 2 tonight, so I’ll be watching and reading the live tweeting for the late showing (11 pm here).

Watching Defiance right now, even though they killed of Christie — aaargh!


Joe what did you do to get put in Twitter jail. Wow Das and Sparrow_hawk thanks for thinking my rankings make sense, just remember my disclaimer. After watching the episode I think there may be a change with FIVE, she is downright scary. Excellent episode


@Sparrowhawk – Dinner was very good…and much needed! Lately if we eat out I get a bunless burger and mashed potatoes. Or grilled chicken. I really needed something tasty!

Okie dokie…Dark Matter

What a disappointment. sad Slow, unimaginative, predictable…

Oh, wait. That was the dream I had about turtles while napping earlier tonight…my bad!! smile

Wow, Joe…this episode really amped up the game! I’m still absorbing everything and I must watch it again before giving my feelings about this episode, but suffice to say that I was pleased, and – at one point – sitting on the edge of my seat! And I even had a laugh out loud moment that involved a certain character we spoke earlier about, and a lot of girly screaming. smile

Bubba, and Lulu? smile Priceless! grin

The music was really good this week, too! And every character (and, of course, actor) delivered in spades! Still need to re-watch to catch all the little things, but on first viewing this episode has already delivered in sp…erm…space? (Help me out here, I’m running out of idioms!!!)




The Significant Other quite enjoyed the Zobot. After watching Episode One separately, we decided we’d watch Episode Two together. The Android and Three had all the best lines tonight.


Have to agree with Cathy. Four seems the most deadly (did you see the scene where he chopped that guy’s head off?), with the Android being slightly below him, though not by much. Two can be really serious and menacing at times. After that, the others seem to really fall under Three for the concern part.

Loved the scene where The Android has that awkward conversation with the Ferrous Corp. guards on the Raza. smile


Joe, need bail money…?

I was in agreement with CathyL until I saw tonight’s show. Now I’ll say:

Super badass:
THREE because he has Bubba. Exactly what kind of gun is that?
FOUR because he is too quick with the swords.
SIX because he is so big.
ONE he can shoot with the best of them.
TWO she don’t mince words.
Cause for concern:
FIVE who is she??!
Android, don’t trust her. Does she ever sleep?

I meant to tell you last week congrats on the “Created By” title. That is huge!
Do you think the Android is just making them think they are criminals?
Consulting Producer Martin Gero. What does he do?
Is there something going on between ONE and TWO?
FIVE opened FOUR’s box, didn’t she?
Is ONE going to be kissing all the girls this season?
Their bedrooms are cool.
ONE, THREE, FOUR and SIX are all expert fighters.
They reminded me of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid there.
You got any Stargate artifacts in Dark Matter or is it all new?


Any attempts or plans to bring back Joe Flanigan for a recurring or small role here?
Do you personally still keep in touch?


SOoooo many questions already about episode one..and I still have more.
…and now with episode two…my head begins to spin again with even more
questions and ideas etc.
With episode three coming up so quick next week..and then four..then
five etc etc.
I will never be able to get fully caught up.

Whatever happened to that post show “show” idea that was discussed?
To much work?..too much bother?…not worth the efforts involved?

Five — “Say something the next time that you come into a room.”
I was expecting ** “something” **….but maybe that will come at another
time..or maybe not.


I loved the guns being named Bubba and Lulu! I like Bubba (the gun) being big but lightweight. Future guns aren’t going to be the heavy, clunky, steel things we have now. Plastics, carbon fiber. Lightweight metals we don’t even have yet.

Mystery box contents. That Five is a little stinker. Hmmm. Now I need to find your blog post with all of the corporate logos.

I stand by my Badass ratings.

@Ponytail: I was wondering the same thing about One kissing the girls. And I hope not. I’m hoping he just felt a connection with this one because of the necklace thing.
