July 19, 2015: Dark Matter Update!  Periscope!  Links!  The Sdcc Panel!

That’s 9 p.m. in the U.K., 10 p.m. in Germany, 4 p.m. EST, 1 p.m. PST.  Find me @BaronDestructo on twitter.  #AskJoeDM for tomorrow’s event.

For those of you who missed the Dark Matter panel at SDCC, here it is compliments of Tom Gardiner from http://www.threeifbyspace.net:

On Dark Matter Episode 106:


“Dark Matter took a bloody trip down memory lane in its memorable sixth episode, giving us a huge insight into the history of some of the crew members, and adding new fuel to the raging nature vs. nurture debate.”


“Now, all we want is more. Lots more.”


“While Dark Matter may be science fiction, it plays more like a mystery creating more puzzle pieces as it fits others in place. Part of the SyFy Friday lineup, this is addictive viewing.”


“Who is Titch, and what happened in their life to turn them into a hardened criminal? That was one of the key questions posed in Episode 6 of Dark Matter.”


” Although the hunt for resources is still center stage as the main problem to be solved in Dark Matter, some much-needed back story came out of “Episode Six,” and my expectations were sent into a tailspin. It’s a pleasant sort of disorientation, and the questions and theories these new details inspire greatly enhances my enjoyment of the series, which is quickly becoming a highlight of Syfy’s summer lineup.”


“The show is building on their drives and gives them each a reason to push forward and accomplish a specific goal. Once we figure out One, Two, and Three’s official pasts, we’ll finally be rounded out. Although I’m suspecting that their memory wipes were an agreed plan, I do like that each character isn’t tied to another in any specific way. Good diversity. More episodes like this please.”


” The future of the show depends on if Dark Matter can dole out information on these mysterious backstories while keeping the present interesting. It’s not an easy task, and to Dark Matter’s credit, it’s done a decent job of it up to now.”

And a nice little write-up of Episode 105 and the show in general I missed:


“Dark Matter then is a fantastic addition to Monday night television and, if the ratings stay strong, should become a nice little earner for the Syfy channel. It certainly has all the elements needed to go the distance, with good characters and a sense of mystery underpinning the story. “

  1. @It certainly has all the elements needed to go the distance

    It does, I’d like to see five seasons out of it. Now, if someone would just renew it, it’d be greatly appreciated 🙂

  2. I just got back into town and hoping to watch the episode tonight!

    So sorry Debra on the death of you fur baby. 12 1/2 years isn’t’ long enough. 🙁

    How is Lulu?

  3. Thanks for posting the ComicCon Panel Video it was very fun to watch. Loved ep 6, some really great character moments, and back story!!! My bother just watched ep 2 and he’s is defiantly getting hooked. He is excited to see where the show goes. So far One seems to be the odd man out for him, and therefore the most intriguing. I also have a friend coming over sometime this week to watch the show. I have been talking it up and as he is cables he’s coming over to my house to watch off iTunes. So hopefully a new fan of the show is on the way.

  4. Just seen the Episode 7 ratings Joe. It was the highest rated Syfy show last Friday in the 18-49 demo with a 0.25 rating. Which beat Defiances 0.23 and Killjoys 0.24. Amazing 🙂

    That being said, its flat at a million, but that could change with a better timeslot I’m sure.

  5. Opps I meant Episode 6, though I’m sure Episode 7 will do equally as well 🙂

  6. Thanks so much for the Periscope. Lot’s of fun. Bubba stole the show of course. It would be great if you can make time do it again in the future. Perhaps with some secret guests hidden behind the couch. Other than tuning in live to the show are there any other effective ways the fans can stump for a season two? I know begging you for another season is kinda pointless since you and your fabulous cast and crew want nothing more. I’d be happy to e-mail, blog, tweet, stalk network execs or whatever if it would help. Hope Lulu is feeling better soon.

  7. I’ve gotta watch some of these Periscope things — and this Comic Con panel — when I have an hour to do so. Trying to get caught up on the blog but thanks @Thogar SO much for sharing. It is exactly what I’ve been wanting to see.
