Kaboom! We have now completed two-thirds of the shooting schedule for season 2 of Dark Matter. Granted, in comparison, we’ve finished only a little over half the edits, less than 15% of the visual effects, hardly any of the mixes – but still, the heavy lifting has been done. And, late last week, I completed a first draft of Episode 212, an episode that, I suspect, will raise more than a few eyebrows on set. #OhdaaaamnThatdidNOTjusthappen!

Whoa whoa whoa. Not so fast, guys. Not so fast.
Ivon and I were rewarded for all of our work (him for writing Episode 209, me for just being me) by longtime blog reader Maryanne who sent us a treat pack chock full o’ Aussie goodies and assorted pug paraphernalia. Thanks!
Good news! Reddit and I are friends again thanks to the timely intervention of some helpful moderators. I’ve been fielding some Stargate-related queries there (most of which involve me breaking the bad news that MGM holds the rights to the franchise and is clearly in no rush to bring back our beloved shows) over the past few days and will continue to survey the sub-reddits for Stargate and Dark Matter questions and comments, intriguing SF conversations, and hilarious marching band gifs.
Well look who’s in town. If it isn’t Dark Matter co-creator Paul Mullie and
Dark Matter actor (Sorry, scratch that. I’m not supposed to say anything until the official announcement) Mike Dopud. Note the crazed look in Paul’s eye, symptomatic of a guy who has spent way too much time on set.
Hey, look! It’s Spiderman! Ha ha! Just kidding.
On the other hand…
