I’d set my alarm for 6 a.m. but actually got up a half an hour earlier at 5:30 a.m. Technically, I’d been awake even earlier if you counted the numerous times I woke up to anxiously check my alarm clock between 3 and 4 a.m. Even earlier still if you counted that 2:00 a.m. text message from Blindspot creator/showrunner Martin Gero wishing me all the best on Dark Matter’s second season.
Because, yes, today was Day #1 of Episode #201 – and, more importantly, the first day of main unit on Dark Matter season 2!
Nope. Not me driving home late last night. This was me driving IN early this morning.
I assume this is the place.
Director Amanda Tapping gifts the Dark Matter Whiskey/y Club with a bottle of Hibiki Japanese Harmony.
Not to be confused with the Mallozzi special reserve.
Welcome to the Hyperion-8 Galactic Detention Facility. Enjoy your stay!

All dressed and ready to go.
Jodelle enjoys a break from prison. A prison break.
Sound recordist Rachelle is optimistically looking forward to a nice blanket of sound-buffering snow.
Rachelle, Jozie, Nikki, and Deano.
Horseplay on set!
The corridors were quiet today because all the action was in the quarters.
A fantastic first day. We were all thrilled to have Amanda back in the director’s chair. Tomorrow: “the confrontation” scene, a hotel room visit, and someone has laundry duty!
