Noooooooo! My one week off is over. Come Monday, I’m back at it, in the room with Paul, Ivon, and Alison, breaking stories for Dark Matter’s third season. No, we haven’t been picked up. Season 2 has yet to air (July 1st on Syfy and SpaceChannel!). BUT, I’m feeling confident. I mean, just wait until you see what season 2 has in store for you and you’ll know why I like our chances. It would be nice to get an official green light sooner than later (later being sometime in September after the last episode has aired), but, hey, such is the business.
Pictured above: our sneak peek screen shot of the day. As promised, the visual effects this season are going to be BIGGER and BETTER. You asked for ship to ship battles, you’re getting ship to ship battles!
In the next few days, I’m going to announce a skill-testing contest for a chance to win a signed, annotated script for our season 2 premiere: “Episode 14: Welcome To Your New Home”. What will you have to do for a chance to win it? Well, it will be deceptively simple. Details to come. But here’s a hint. Remember last year I noted how the wardrobe department had posted Dark Matter-themed dog pictures up on their walls, each corresponding to a specific episode? To refresh your memories here’s a breakdown…
Well, they’ve done the same thing for the show’s second season. If I posted these new pictures to the blog, do you think you’d be able to match them to their respective season 2 episodes? Well, you’re going to have to for a chance to win. Dog pics and details to come!
Over on reddit, my trip down Stargate memory lane continues with a few reminiscences, and plenty of pics from the Art Department archives like…
Khonsu’s planet – “The Other Guys” – artist, James Robbins.

And a little something from the playback department.
