The second instalment in my Weird Food Purchase of the Week: Weird Soda Edition:

Some Dark Matter links:

The Summer Studs of SyFy (P.S. After last episode I’m sure you’ll agree they’re missing one!):

An Episode #107 post-mortem:

“As we do every week, we talked with Mallozzi all about Episode 7 for more information on Three’s backstory, a look into how some of Wendy’s special talents and skills came about and how things are looking for the Android next week.”

An Episode #107 review:

“Snap, Crackle ‘n Pop. The latest episode of Dark Matter was the sexiest episode thus far, at least suggestively anyway. Brace yourself, because Dark Matter definitely went there this week. The Raza crew finally gained access to the secret room, we found out Three isn’t a jerk ass after all, and One and Two finally hooked up on “Episode 7” of Dark Matter.”

Another Episode #107 review:

“Each episode is reveals more about the crew and each character is becoming well rounded and three dimensional as a result. Zoie Palmer is becoming more endearing with each episode as are the rest of the crew. Anthony Lemke rocks it this week with his heel with heart story and the entire cast are hitting their stride performance wise.”

What was the best scene from Episode #107?  Read the review and vote for your favorite here:

“This episode shed a lot of light on Three and left fans with a lot of things to ponder. […] Only time will tell, but I suggest buckling in because things are only going to keep escalating as the second half of the season gears up to FTL speed.”

  1. I’m glad the Martian Soda was more agreeable, but I fear the rest may all be in contention for the number 6 slot.

    We picked these sodas up in Arcadia Oklahoma, at Pops along Route 66:

    I’d order more, but Pops doesn’t ship (it’s a retail outlet only). You can find Martian Abduction Soda on Amazon though:

    And I’ve been re-tweeting #RenewDarkMatter…who’s with me?

  2. Huh. Not sure if my previous comment went through or not. It seems to have disappeared. I just finished catching up on episode 7, and it was fantastic. Just, wow. This show just keeps getting better and better. Give my regards to Rob C. for such a great episode. Every one of the cast did an excellent job, too!

    I’m with you, JeffW!

  3. I’m still behind in DM, I’m trying to curb my binging addiction and savor on the weekends. I will agree that syfy is awash in pulchritude this summer; I’m loving the great sci fi stories and easy-on-the-eyes casts. I finally tried okonomiyaki. The living-organism presentation made me doubt my choice but it was so tasty that my dinner mates went from suggesting I take home what I couldn’t finish to polishing it off before the waiter came back with the takeout box.

  4. JeffW – I have also been to Pop’s Soda Shop where I bought one of every grape soda they had several years ago. I think there were over 30 of them. I also purchased a wooden crate there with the name and Arcadia, OK burned into the side. I tried to paste a photo here, but I cannot make it happen.

    At the time I was on an informal mission to find the best grape soda in the USA. Alas, none of those 30+ bottles of grape goodness could rival Flathead Lake Monster White Grape soda from Montana which, oddly enough, I didn’t have when I was in Montana several years ago. Rather, I bought it at Central Market in Dallas and haven’t seen it since 2010 or 2011.

    Arcadia is just a little over 3 hours from me…approx 211 miles. Around here we call that an easy day trip. You may have inspired me to revisit and launch a search for the best Orange soda in the land…or best cola…or best………

  5. Your mastery of the Martian tongue is impressive. We need to collect some money to buy you a proper bottle opener they weighs a tad less than the bottles you are opening. Cannot wait to see what flavors you have left to sample. Really rooting for the celery soda to rise from its position in the cellar.There must be a pine resin and chicory blend that would do the trick.

  6. BTW I’m a little closer to Pops than Jenny Horn. It’s about a 20 minute drive. If anyone needs an overnight shipment of bootleg celery soda let me know.

  7. Ugh, the video didn’t work on my computer. I’ll try later on the iPad.

    Lulu hanging in there? I hope the vitamins helped.

    I’ll join you in tweeting JeffW. 🙂

    Hope y’all have a good day!!!

  8. Last episode was very good with a bunch of surprises. I little critic . The rythm is little inconsistent.

  9. 107 was great! Really enjoyed it. Zoie played “almost jealous” really well. And it was great seeing another layer of the onion that is 3. Anthony pulled that off with style.

  10. I think it’s amazing how well anime does on cable. Sword Art Online 2 got a 0.5 18-49, Kill La Kill got a 0.7, as did Dragonball Z Kai last Saturday. That’s higher than a whole bunch of far more expensive shows this Summer.
