First off, a little something I received today from Zoie Palmer (Dark Matter‘s Android) who is at Dallas Comic Con meeting her fans – some of who, it turns out, are Stargate AND Dark Matter fans AND read the blog!
Thanks for the hello’s. Wish I could’ve been there! Next time you see Jason Momoa, ask him to tell you the story of how he scared the crap out of two would-be burglars in Vancouver.
Bring the crew of The Raza home with you in this 3 disc DVD set which includes all 13 episodes plus special features including the infamous mole reveal!
Here’s what reviewers have to say about Dark Matter‘s first season:
“Overall then, a series which opens intriguingly and ends with the possibility for danger pushed to cinematic levels. If you’ve ever enjoyed a slice of TV sci-fi, or just love a good drama with winning characters set in an engaging environment – you’ll find plenty to enjoy and perhaps even obsess over here.”
“The series is action-packed, but also has a gripping way with cliff-hanger endings, meaning almost every week ends with some sort of hook that makes the show not just a good weekly watch but a good binge too. In fact, it’s exactly the sort of show one used to look to Syfy for back when it was Sci-fi, and it’s great to have this sort of thing back on the air.”
“As a first season, DARK MATTER has set a good basis in the direction it’s going, paving a clear way for something significantly unique and new while keeping an identity to the genre. There is more than enough mystery with the memory loss sub-plot and even displays some nice action set pieces.”
“From the pens of the dynamic duo who brought us such great Sci-Fi as Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and SGU Stargate Universe Joseph Malzlozi and Paul Mullie, they bring us a 13 part series that stands out as a riveting show.”
“Much the shows humor comes from a combination of the Android and Anthony Lemke as Three aka Marcus Boone. Boone starts off as the most out of control of the characters and also the least sympathetic. This kind of changes by the mid season point where we get a glimpse of his softer side.”
“Dark Matter is stronger than its opening would suggest, becoming a more intricate web with each episode.”
P.S.: Capped off yesterday’s birthday festivities with a 12:35 a.m. (false) fire alarm.
P.P.S.: I’m going to try to catch up on the mailbag tomorrow. Post anymore questions if you got ’em!
P.P.P.S.: Production Designer Ian Brock is sending me some amazing sketches and design work in preparation for season 2. Interested seeing what we have in the works?
